There are replacement LED bulbs that will fit your existing fixtures so you would need to remove a bulb and find out what type they are so the replacements would match the bulb socket. I could guess and say they were 1156 bulbs but you really would need to know for sure. The power savings are huge with all the old lamps on in my T1700 t took 23 amps to run them 3.5 amps with the LED's!

There are 2 approaches. Some replace the entire light with an led and others replace just the bulb - both in and out.

Inside I bought paddle shaped leds bulbs to put in the existing lights. On the exterior, there is a good argument made to replace the whole thing, but I didn’t do that on mine. On my 2006, I replaced the original lenses (bargeman 68 style) because several were cracked and put front emitting leds in them. This was fast and easy and required no wiring since the new lenses fir on the old bases. I have had 100% success with this approach and not a single problem after 50k miles and several years. If lamp mounts were corroded or degraded just replacing the whole thing would be better.

What are the lights you are replacing?

All of my LED lamps are flush mount, you can buy a flush mount fixture that use a G4 type bulb and use that base for an LED on 12 volts. I did not like the cheap camper fixtures and was in the process of redoing the entire interior of the camper and way. You can buy LED's to replace the lamp in the stock fixtures that obviously is the cheapest and quickest method. If you dry camp it is worth every penny you spend for the LED's.
