ffoil Posted August 18, 2015 Report Share Posted August 18, 2015 Hi, We recently updated all the interior lighting on our 2011 Shasta Revere 21TB with LED bulbs purchased from Amazon and I thought it might be useful to share my results. Our Revere has 5 double bulb lamps (3 overhead, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen) and 8 single bulb lamps used as reading lights for a total of 18 bulbs. After reading many reviews of different bulbs on Amazon we went with GRV LED bulbs in two different sizes. Slightly dimmer and cheaper bulb (for reading lamps) $2.48/bulb in a 10 pack "GRV T10 921 194 24-3528 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Warm White AC/DC 12V -28V Pack of 10" http://www.amazon.com/24-3528-Bulb-Super-Bright-White/dp/B00EDFM5QU/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1439864532&sr=8-3-fkmr0&keywords=grv+led+921+24-5432 Brighter bulb (for overhead, bathroom, and kitchen) $5.55/bulb in a 10 pack "GRV T10 921 194 24-5050 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Warm White AC/DC 12V -28V Pack of 10" http://www.amazon.com/GRV-24-5050-Super-Bright-White/dp/B00EDFM3B2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1439864960&sr=8-3&keywords=grv+led+921+24-5050 Important notes: 1. We decided to purchase the "12V-28V" version of the bulbs which are marginally more expensive. Some reviews of the "12V" versions stated that they overheated when left on for long periods while the battery charger was running above 12V. 2. The larger bulb (24-5050) requires a full 2" of clearance from where it inserts into the socket. Check your individual light fixtures to make sure they will fit. 3. Some people replaced all bulbs with model 24-3528 but we opted for brighter bulbs in overhead applications and are happy with the results. I think the 24-3528 in overhead application would be too dim. 4. I used a sturdy set of pliers (from a multitool) in order to grip the base when installing the bulbs. They slotted in very easily with a little wiggle and did not require any dielectric grease. Don't attempt to insert while gripping the circuit board or you'll break the bulb.
