How many light bulbs in a LY MH

I started replacing as many interior and exterior light bulbs that I could with LED's. Counting marker lights, docking, parking, taillights, porch and all the storage compartments outside. Interior lights in all fixtures, aisle, dash and door refrigerator, hood and map lights I was surprised there are over 70 lights. Its hard to could them all, count them all try for yourself.

Too bad they aren't all the same for interior or even exterior, replacement equivalents types may lower your number.

Maybe a short list of socket types with location and LED's equivalent lumen output is needed, any volunteers? A sticky list of found substitutes would make it easier to do the replacements.

There are four types of sockets. The old push and turn type for the old 1141/1156 type, the push and turn type with a double element, like the 1157 turn signal/taillight, the weird double contact-single element type like you find in the chandeliers of the Land Yachts, and the push-in T10 type, like the 194 marker light bulbs.
There is also the tiny push and turn type, such as you would find in marker lights with the #57 bulbs, but I haven't seen any LED replacements for those.

The owners manual has a list of bulbs used in the LY

I found a good cross reference web site www.rvlighting.ca that shows detailed pictures of the LED lights that replace the old bulbs. This site was helpful because I was having a problem finding the correct replacements. The LEDS are so new that most of the RV stores don't even know what their selling and carry a very limited selection. My main reason for the post was to look at a MH you just wouldn't think there would be over 70 light bulbs and that's not counting the fluorescent light bulbs. At least it was surprising to me that there are so many, especially when you start buying them.

Re: LED replacement bulbs

I recently converted all of the automotive incandescent bulbs in our 2005 19-foot Bambi to LEDs. Found replacements on Amazon.com, sold by EverSale.com in Florida. See direct replacements listed by bulb type, below:

1141/1156: EverSale.com : LED 2W 12V White Omni Bulb BA15S 1156 P21W Brake Tail 18 5050 SM [EV-BA15S-18] - $4.99

1157: EverSale.com : LED 2W 12V White Omni Bulb BAY15D 1157 Brake Tail 18 5050 [EV-BAY15D-1157-18-NW] - $4.99

T10/194: EverSale.com : LED 18x5050 2W 12V White Omni Wedge Bulb T10 194 168 2825 W5W [EV-LED-T10-18-WW] - $4.99

57: EverSale.com : LED 1W 12V White Omni Bulb BA9S T4W SIDE TAIL 5 5050 SMD [EV-BA9S-5-NW] - $1.99

I bought mine on EBay too. I haven't replaced them all yet since I am replacing them by type when one in the group fails.
