Lights - Inside and Out

I just replaced my original converter in my 25' 1987 Sovereign. While checking out the electrics I noticed that my OEM internal lights draw 1.5 amps each! What have you all used and recommend for replacement LEDs? Thanks!

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

I replaced some of the high usage light bulbs with LEDs in our 86. I replaced exterior marker lights and tail lights with LEDs for improved visibility. LEDs are clearly the way of the future. They require just a fraction of the energy of an incidence bulb.

I just replaced all the interior bulbs and the outside floodlight bulbs with these warm white LED's. With the covers on they look just like the old ones in brightness and color. And each bulb only draws 0.23 DC amps, or a reduction of 85%!
