It took about 3 mins per fixture to replace them.

How do you like output of those?
I counted 50 total LED on those, when my converted fixtures have 300 LED over the table and DW still complain about not enough.

I have one fixture above the dinette, one above the sink, one in front of the fridge and one in the bed area, all the factory locations. Light output has never been an issue (way brighter than the previous lights), in fact I usually only have half the fixture switched on. One issue with them is hard to explain, they cast a white and yellow striped pattern on everything. It's subtle but I notice it.

That said, I would install the same as replacements to incandescent fixtures again without question.

I did these 4w flush mounts. Used the same hole. I also put recessed under cabinet lighting over the sink.

I did my old camper with 12 vt led and they were not a bright white light, they were kind of a warm yellowish tint. I didn't care for that, so when I did the newer Lance, I got some brighter white lights, I like them better, but I think I could have done better on my choice. I got mine from Amazon and they were relatively inexpensive. If you have the time do your research as to what exactly you want in the line of "color" of the lights. If you use You Tube at all you might check out the guy who does the "RVProjects" channel he goes through the different "colors" and types of led and explains it pretty good. This guy is pretty good, no loud music no long intros, just gets to the facts and explains what he is doing and what he uses (with links).

I did LEDs a few years back from www.ledtrailerlights.com

Here's my thread My EASY LED Upgrade
We got ours from ledtrailerlights.com too and have been quite happy with them. The color is good and we've had no failures.

my only advice is to look for LED's that are rated at 12V-24V dc.
Some times your built in charger can push 14.8V, and if you have temp corrected solar you can push up into the 15V range. LED's marked for 12V use will overheat when you start pushing them towards 13V

Since this reply I bought a car with LED headlights.
When I like the color and the beam power, the edges of light beam do have the yellow stripes. Not a big deal, but seems to be associated with LED lighting.

I had the same issue. I put a small rectangle of facial tissue on the lens and solved the problem without any noticeable decrease in light output. Since they produce no heat, there is no fire hazard with paper between the lens and lights.

Actually, LEDs can get very hot if they aren’t good ones and can burn their circuitboard. Certainly, they could start a fire with most facial tissue.

It would be better to take the cover off and spray it with some opaque paint.
