So much for 194's fitting the stove. Someone else's did but the ones I bought do not. Each is very different and none fit.

I did find that the pancake lights are 921 which is what I thought I had heard. So will get some of those.

Cathy,
Are you looking for a LED for the light in the stove vent hood? I got a "2pcs 42-SMD T15 12V LED Replacement Light Bulbs" for about $5 from Amazon that works in my vent hood. I think I looked up the part number in the manual for the hood but that was 4 months ago and my memory isn't quite that long these days!

That looks like it will work and it is also a 921, which is what apparently fits in the pancakes. I don't know how someone used a different numbered bulb for the stove before unless maybe the bulbs are different in previous years. Thanks!! I will get one.

I bought a wedgie bulb from Camping World but most of the light got lost up in the hood. This thread has some fixes. Post 18 is where I ended up and I have a crazy amount of light on the stove now.

Range hood and wedgie bulb improvement?

Just heard from ETI, the 2015 19 does not come with LED interior bulbs. It sounds like a 10 pack will cover it so I'll probably get these.Amazon.com: GRV T10 921 194 24-3528 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Warm White DC 12V Pack of 10: Automotive
$21 + free prime ship better than the $200 for the LED option, plus I know I'm getting warm white and not cool white.

I got a pack of those to replace one lamp that burned out in our previous trailer. My intention was to use them in our new trailer, but found out they don't fit the low profile LED sockets. One did work for the lamp in the range hood. I don't know if they would fit the sockets for incandescent bulbs.

If your trailer comes with LED bulbs, I think they are these bulbs from Diamond Group. I haven't been able to find any cheap knock off replacement bulbs for the low profile sockets. The LEDs that come with the trailer do provide significantly more light than the bulbs Greg references.

Maybe I better wait and see the low profile light fixtures before I order. The bulbs I listed have fit all T10/921 RV fixtures to date including our 2005 Escape 17 B light fixtures and have been excellent. Did ETI change the type of fixture they are using currently? Also those bulbs you link to are 5500 Kelvin which puts them in the daylight range. For us, we prefer 3000 Kelvin or below which is the warm white similar to an incandescent bulb.
There is a brighter option if one wants http://amzn.to/1OBVdP1 that is still in the warm white color range.

As far as I can tell, there is no change. The difference is with the LED fixtures if you have ordered LED fixtures for your trailer build, which you have not.

So what we need is the same that you need, and everyone who did not order a build with LEDs. It looks as if the fixtures you want would work but I see that they also say they are 194. The 194's I tried did not work. But the ones you want also say 921 which should mean that they will be good.

Leon is talking about the different fixtures he has that came with the trailer for LEDs. That is not what you are getting unless you add them to your build.

At least, that is what it all looks like to me!

Cathy, you are correct -- We got LEDs with the trailer, and they are the ones I linked to in my earlier post. If the incandescent fixtures are different, then the LEDs that Greg pointed to may work.

I I definitely prefer the warmer white LEDs as opposed to the daylight white. But I haven't been able to find cheap replacements for the bulbs that came with the trailer. And on the other hand, Lindy prefers the daylight white. I did order a couple of warm white replacement bulbs for the reading lamps.

The other thing i notice about the LEDs that came with the trailer is that they seem sensitive to voltage fluctuations. If we have the pump running, and we are charging a laptop with a 12 volt charger, or we have a lot of lights on, then the lights are prone to flickering. This is true even if the batteries are fully charged. That wasn't true in our 17b, but then we didn't have as many lights in the 17.

Leon, I was aware that the LEDs were different when I tried to find out from ETI what was used. They said they could not tell me because they did not want to take apart a fixture which I understand has a screw on it? So we have the old regular and I knew those could be replaced easily --- ha, ha --- at least I think so, but have yet to do it. Just ordered some more bulbs. We'll see.

As far as warm or bright, trying to check that by ordering two different ones and seeing the difference.

Some of our bulbs have a number obvious on them. I assume you have looked closely at yours.

On the voltage fluctuations, they have a range and it is small on your bulbs. I have ordered some that have a big range and whether we want cool or warm may not be as important as that. Yes, they routinely flicker if a limited range which is what we had before with our LEDs. Can try to avoid that by looking at reviewers info.
