1157, or similar Style LED Interior Bulb Warm Lighting?

Does such an animal exist? Dual post but not bright white, but warm lighting for bedroom slideout.

Thanks in advance.

I believe a 1157 base would be 2 contact type bulb with one way connection as used auto run/brake use. A 1056 or 1057 same diameter base would be a single contact bulb used in the amber door light or a vehicles backup lights or some older RV lighting.

As posted by Boon Docker if you want a warm light you need to search for a 3000K bulb. The 6000k bulbs will put out that harsh white lighting.

I purchased 1141 LED replacements on Amazon. Got 20 of them for $24, They work well.

Exactly!
The numbers describe the physical and electrical aspects of the lamp. You don't put gasoline in a diesel or shampoo in the dishwasher!

Anybody ever seen a dual contact interior light socket? I've seen 1157 bulbs wedged into a 1141 socket for more light. The first indication is a melted lens, followed by a melted fixture. Not good.
