I've decided to replace all my trailer inside bulbs with efficient LEDs. Between living room, kitchen, bedside, and bath there are a lot of different styles (perhaps 7!). I'd like to find a one-stop shop to find plug-in replacements for all of these with a minimum of hassle and reasonable cost. Do you all have any recommendations?

Amazon and eBay.

Replace your tail lights while at it with brighter LED bulbs drawing less power.

For dry campers/boondockers the power consumption difference is amazing. I like the warm white LEDs.

When I converted mine I ordered them from M4products.com
They were all excellent quality.

You'll see a big spread in prices and one stop will be tough with that many types. I've spent $350 on a 5er and that was finding a happy medium between quality and price. There's hundred of vendors. Super bright LEDs is a quality vendor. Lately, I've done careful shopping on eBay and found great prices and good quality but from different vendors. Have fun figuring out the terminology, brightness and color temps! Craig

I replaced all my 1156 bulbs with some LED ones from Amazon with a 20 pack that cost about $20.. This was just the interior lights, but all work great wish I had done it sooner, because this trailer is going away tomorrow... Only had the LED's for this year, but they work great.

Can I ask a question, did you find the leds put off more heat than the standard bulbs.

No.
Maybe 1/10 the heat
