Lightbulb Question

Hi to everyone!

We have a 2013 Hideout 19FLBWE, and I would like to switch the interior lightbulbs out for led bulbs.

I finally got the cover off one of the fixtures, but I'm not sure how to remove the bulb. It is not the standard bayonet-type bulb, but it looks like a white plastic base with a few raised dots on it.

I don't want to force or break the fixture. I can't find any info about the type of bulbs are in these fixtures, so I'm hoping someone can advise me.

Thanks in advance, and if this thread should be in another category, I apologize.

A picture would really help. Mine pull straight out. I don't have these bulbs but the base looks like mine.
I looked at my fixtures and on the reflector it says what type bulb and mine does say 921 type. Even the bulb had 921 on it.
Hope this helps.

Most likely a bayonet bulb. They simply push into the slot and there are two wires exposed on the bulb. 921 is the most common, and when looking for LED replacements just make sure they are compatible with a 921 base.

If they're like mine, you have to pull hard. A little side to side wiggle helps someone, but carefully!

and don't feel bad ... I asked the same question (pictures of mine here)

I'll bet they're a 921 also. Some of mine were darn hard to pull out and put in - wiggle and pull. The cover slides out then pulls down on mine to align the retaining ears with the slots. The link below is what I used for replacement and they have done wonders; heat is almost non existent. My converter used to kick in when I turned on the first light switch. Now I can turn them all on with the exception of the bathroom (1fixture) and you can't hear the inverter. Good luck.

I was about to ask if someone would post a picture of the led bulb they used. Thanks so much. Are these as bright as the factory bulbs? Would you buy the same ones if you had it to do over?

There is a sticky on RV LED's in the Modifications & Upgrades section of the forum...The sticky is the third one down from the top of the listings.

You'll find some background information on LED lighting and some suggestions as to where you can buy them.

I did real all the posts in the sticky. Would be nice to see some examples of the bulbs people actually installed.
I followed Sourdough's lead and ordered these.

I received my new LED bulbs yesterday. They worked out perfect. They seem as bright as the factory bulbs I replaced and 20 bulbs cost less than $40.00. The light color is very similar to the factory bulbs and not harsh or office like. I couldn't be happier. Thanks to for the recommendation.

You'll find they're easier on power usage as well.

As I sit here reading the Forum with 4' of snow just about touching my window sill, I can't wait for this winter to end. As do most, I'm sure. I just made an impulse buy on two of these packages from Amazon. I hope my new 2015 Bullet 248 RKS has the 921 bulb, it's sitting at the dealer right now. Why did I click on BUY before I confirmed the part #?? Must have something to do with my current sickness called Cabin Fever. LOL

The only light in my new Springdale that wasn't 921 bulbs was the light over the dining table. There were 22 bulbs that were. I bet someone will gladly take them off your hands if they won't work. Sorry about all the snow. I won't mention that it was 70 degrees here in North Arkansas.

The ice missed us here in North AR, but looks like another chance Friday and Saturday.

I have taken advantage of this fine weather we are having (freezing rain, sleet . snow,) to install some LED lights in the TT, they are not as bright and harsh as the 921s however they are a pure white and the light level is more to my liking, I really cant complain as I bought 20 of them for $15.00, one side of my fixture is wired right for them the other side was not, all it took to modify the lights was to unfold the leads from the base turn the head 180 degrees , refold the leads, and then make sure the leads inside the base are not touching
