Welcome to the forum. You might want to go to the Sticky on LED lighting that we have on the forum. It is found in the Modifications & Upgrades section in our main page. The sticky is the 3rd one down from the top of the list. The information you are looking for can be found there.

Which LED lights/Bulbs

You really have to look at the light fixtures in your RV, since different light fixtures use different bulbs, and possibly even different versions of your Montana.
Ours used the T10 type of bulb for most lights, but some where candelabra base, and others were bayonet type.

LED bulbs

I think most RVs use bayonet type 921 bulbs.They are clear glass with a pinched in glass base with two wires crimped over the end. There are lots of places on ebay and Amazon that sell bulbs that will work for you. For general lighting I use the warm white bulb ( color temp 3000-4000K). I find that the pure white (color temp 5-6000K) are a little harsh. The warm white light is similar to that produced by the incandescent bulbs you are replacing. I use the pure white over my desk and I feel it is good for "task lighting". Other thing to look for is the light output of the LED. You want a bulb putting out about 200 or more lumens. If the light output is not specified or if it is only 100 lumens dont buy. I did notice that amazon doesnt specify light output but one of the units they sell is rated at 3 watts vs 1 watt for some of the others. The 3watt bulb is the one you want. I have used pancake-style, flat panel and 360 degree bulbs and they all seem to work equally well. You should be able to get your bulbs for about $2 each. Do a search on ebay for T10 warm white LED and you should find what you need

All replaced everything

I replaced all of my lights with the Starlights LED's

I found that replacing the incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs was NOT cheap!

I was able to replace all my single and double light fixtures with the Starlights 3002 and 3003 lights AND add photo cell (auto on/off at dark), dimmer and Motion to fixtures I wanted for about $200 total for 16 fixtures.

I replaced all of the 921 bulbs in my little Coleman camper with LED bulbs for ~$20 I don't know what the wattage or lumens are, they appear a bit less bright than the 921, but we don't spend that much time inside anyway. The reduction in heat and current draw was well worth it.

Starlights may be much more costly than others and you may be getting a better quality bulb for the increased cost. You can pick up much cheaper bulbs from ebay/amazon for around $3-$4 apiece - sometimes less. The photo cells/dimmer/motion sensor may have added to your overall cost but a person can do a complete changeover for far less than $200.

Starlights are good stuff. I like their porch lights and will be upgrading to one eventually.
