Range Hood Light

We have the range hood in our 2011 19. It currently has an incandescent light in it. I want to replace that with an LED version. Has anyone done this and, if so, what type of LED light did you use? I can order one from Autolumination but I'll need the type number.

Doug, THIS wedge based one works very good. They are what I replaced all my bulbs with, except the exterior lights where I used THESE 1156 bayonet bulbs. I used bright white everywhere but in the new double fixture I put over our dinette. In my hood hand I used up 3 cheap eBay LED pad lights wired into one wedge base to use them up.

After going the cheap eBay route, which lots of folks at FGRV seem to like, and getting frustrated with the poor intensity of the light they put out, I sucked it up and bought these. They work great!

I had an extra one from buying LEDs for the other trailer lights (irrc they're type 906), and it worked just fine. I went the cheap route on amazon, and have needed to re-seat two of the bulbs because their connection got loose, but haven't had any other trouble. Just mentioning this in case you already have an extra lying around!
