Beats me. They did the install.

Hi Jim - I'll take you up on the offer if they are still available. Ordering some LED bulbs is on my really long to-do list. PM heading your way.

So much for my "quick question" .

The 921 doesn't work in mine. I ordered these from Amazon and had to return today.

It looks like I have the older LED fixture (Bargman?) that's pictured. Given that, do I have any choice as far as replacements? They're all working now, I just wanted to experiment with different light temps -- though if they're going to be difficult or extremely expensive to replace when I really need to that'd be good to know.

I have the older style incandescent fixtures (2008 era) and the reflector says to use type 921 bulbs - see photo.

Tammy from ETI suggested sourcing the replacement bulbs from https://www.superbrightleds.com/. I haven't tried yet.

I ordered some warm bulbs in the same number (except for the warm designation) and they would not fit despite the fact that the cool ones do. Go figure. So I don't know how to get other ones either.

Yeah, I don't see anything that would work at superbrightleds -- perhaps a quick email to Escape is in order.

Escape starting putting all LEDs last year but they are completely different from what you or I would need. So have to talk to someone who knows about replacing their old fixtures where a bulb is easily replaced, which is not the case any more.

Just a note on the Camping World listing: it says "18 watt", but that is clearly not correct; it was presumably supposed to say "18 LEDs" or "18 diodes" or "18 SMDs" (which all mean the same thing).

Here's another retailer's listing of the same item:
65432 Diamond Group Overhead 906/921 Style LED Bulb
Quote:
Sealed SMD Technology LED replacement bulb for 906/921 overhead applications. 175 lumens, Daylight white 5500k.
... or Amazon.com:
Diamond Group 65432 18 Diode LED Bulb with SMD Technology
Quote:
Recommended for top mount/overhead use, this 18 diode LED bulb features a wedge mount connector and built in surge protection. With a 5500 Kelvin or daylight white color scheme, you can replace 906, 921, 161, 168, and 194 bulbs. 175 lumen output with .12 amp draw.
That's about 1.5 watts, which is reasonable for this type of device.

Thanks Brian. I'm glad I asked about this though it's clearly not quite as easy as I thought it would be. It's good to know there are replacements, but they are so pricey and limited in temp -- more than a new fixture with a cheaper and more flexible range of replaceable bulbs.

Something to think about when the bulbs eventually do go bad, I guess. Thanks to Eric Thompson I just added a few reading lights, so now that I'm a rewriting pro I wouldn't be as intimitated by swapping these out at some point.
