I want to replace standard lights with LEDs

I want to replace the standard lights on our upcoming 21' Escape.

Does anyone know:
How many LEDs I need?
What style/model # do I need to purchase?

All Escapes are now LED's inside and outside, no need to swap out bulbs.

OK. Now, I know I am pushing my luck...

Do you know if they are warm LEDs or cool LEDs?

I asked ETI this exact same question

And they are "neutral"

Which probably means about daylight. At noon

And that means very nice!

I don't know the actual kelvin color temperature #

But "neutral" is an actual thing.

And it is nice. We have it in our home, in places. Not blue-ish, but not yellow ish.

:-)

From the pictures they do not appear to be the blue tint leds used awhile back in the captain lights, I'd wait until taking possession and making the decision.

Thanks Jim and Los Angeles!

Jim, we are currently about 50 miles Southwest of you in Gettysburg, getting immersed in Civil War history!

In any event, if you ordered the range hood, you will probably want to replace that "useless" bulb with a brighter LED. I got them from Amazon. They are Jtech 4x T10 921 194 24-SMD LED bulbs.

We are headed to the Fall Gathering at Sampson State Park in Romulus, NY on Sept. 6th, the Niagra Wine Escape in Ontario, Canada on Sept. 14th, the Mississippi River Rendezvous at the Thomson Causeway in Illinois on Sept 29th and Eggshells on the Outer Banks on Oct. 7th...missing the LBL.
