Don't think these would work because of the size. There should be bulbs that plug right in. I am not sure about your configuration. Mine are Led so I have nothing to look at. On my Casita I had twist style maybe 1076 bases. Bought EBay bulbs that were quite satisfactory.

Others chime in please?

Seef, do you mean the rectangular exterior lights, such as at the door? Those normally use a bayonet-base bulb known (in North America) by codes including 1003, 1141 and 1156 (depending on their wattage), and "tower" style LED replacements fit and work well.

examples:
porch light
1003 bulb
LED unit to replace common 1003 bayonet bulb
LED unit to replace 1141/1156 (brighter) bayonet bulb
(All at Camping World for convenience, not unique to there and I wouldn't likely buy one from them)

Current owners please correct me if I have the type of exterior lamp and bulb wrong.

Correct you Brian? Never Yes, pulled the bulb out of my light to confirm, it's a 1003 bayonet mount.

Yep, i mean the rectangular exterior lights. Thanks for the codes, overhere we don't know about codes. This makes live easy on amazon/eBay.

Thanks for the info!

Hi guys,

thanks for your help, i just ordered a bunch of LED Bulbs for the exterior lights and some different lights for the range hood.

Will keep you posted if they do their job OK.

Oh yeah, got them via dx.com

Range hood and wedgie bulb improvement?

Harry at the bluebonnet rally sells LEDs out of his Casita, so we picked up one with a T10 base for the range hood bulb which blew after about 2 weeks. Works fine. A little pricey at $12 but I figured since we were here we'd give him some business.

I bought a pack of 4 from Amazon prime, got them in 2 days and they are just about the right brightness. Much better than the original one. I left it on so many times, not anymore!

Ironically, you could leave it on all the time and still use less energy than the original bulb.
