Default Another LED bulb question!

I am replacing all the inscandescent bulbs in our 1995 Pleasureway. Found a great deal for White 1156 18-LED Bulb Lights at
http://www.suntekstore.ca/white-1156-18 ... ht.html.ca. as I mentioned in a previous post.
My question is: My incandescent bulbs are #1141. Is the above LED light a compatible replacement for the 1141? Just want to make sure I am ordering the right ones!
Thanks everyone,
Mamello

Yes.

The base of a 1141 and a 1156 bulb is the same. They are different brightness.

1156 bulbs are 26.9 watts. 2.1 amp hr
1141 bulbs are 18.4 watts. 1.44 amp hr

More watts = more current used.

Your new bulbs will only use 105mA. That's roughly 1/10th of what your current bulb draws from your battery.

18 LEDs/bulb??? I think the ones I got last year are only 9 LEDs each.
You'll go blind if you're not careful!!!

A good internet place is SuperBrightLEDs. They have an online cross reference chart for
automotive replacement (incandescent to LED) bulbs that's pretty useful. Link.....
http://www.superbrightleds.com/
Prices and shipping costs are reasonable. I just replaced my van's door step and cab dome courtesy lights
with their 4410 festoon LED bulbs and they work GREAT!!! At 1/15 the power consumption, I can leave a
door ajar for a while and hardly drain my vehicle battery at all.

I've noticed a SuperbrightLED (no "s" on the name) website as well, but haven't dealt with them. No idea what
they're all about, but they advertise factory pricing.

Good luck 2u2.

p.s. after some further thought, you can get a touchy feely look at LED bulbs at places like Canadian Tire,
Nutech Electronics (in the Niagara Ontario region), Princess Auto, and some truck stops now carry
them too, although the selection isn't always that great.

update....
I purchased the White 1156 18-LED Bulb Lights from Suntek.ca (service was efficient and prompt) and replaced all 11 #1141 incandescent bulbs in our Pleasure Way. They worked just fine in all the fixtures except in one dual ceiling fixture(one of 3 ). Not sure why. The incandescents work fine but not the LEDs. Anyone have any ideas? If I take the fixture down, what should I be looking for?
And guess what?....When I turned ALL the lights ON...We did NOT go blind!!!
In fact, I wouldn't want anything less than these 18 LED bulbs!
The LEDS do give off a whiter light, a little more like moonlight instead of sunlight! Kinda Kool!

Do the suspect led's work in other fixtures?

If so, I suspect low voltage is the problem. LED's won't light up at all if the voltage is too low. A simple test would be to plug into grid power and see if they work. If you can't plug into grid power then start the van motor and leave it running and test your new led's in that fixture.

Have you verified what lights you actually need to replace the dual fixture incandescents?
Superbrightleds has a link to a Sylvania website where you can determine what bulbs your chassis
needs by their OEM bulb type. My RT is on a 2002 Chevy Express Van chassis, and the Sylvania site
lists all the bulb numbers, by application. I can then go to the S-B-leds page with the cross reference chart
and get the LED equivalent numbers.
I'd have to suggest using the http://www.superbrightleds.com charts and replacement aids, to see if you
can figure it out. Without seeing the fixture, it's hard to guess what might be the problem.
Are the leds single (1156) or double (1157) contacts on the base? Make sure the bases of the leds and
incandescents are the same. Maybe the dual overhead is a dual intensity bulb fixture?
Here's a link to their starting page for figuring out what you need.....
http://www.superbrightleds.com/1157.htm

Good luck, LEDs rock!!!
Glad your eyesight is still OK.
