921 bulb replacement information can be found in this short article.
I’ve actually installed these replacements in my RV and can truly speak about them truthfully.
So please take advantage of my experience – for example – you can’t ignore the lumens value!
The light bulb we are trying to replace is called a 921 light bulb with a “wedge style base”.
Here are some 921 bulb specs that you might find interesting. This bulb runs on 12 Volts DC (all/most RV systems operate on this system).
This 921 bulb in the wedge style consumes about 18Watts of electricity. I’m thinking this puts out about 280 lumens (hard to find GOOD data on this). So the efficiency of this type of bulb is 15 Lumens per Watt, which is fairly low for an incandescent.

18 Watts doesn’t sound like much, but when you are boondocking and running 10-15 lights you can consume 200 Watts which will drain your battery fairly quickly.
How incandescent lights work – very very simple explanation
For the technical person the way the incandescents work is that they heat a filament in glass bulb and the filament will then radiate light from the heated filament. Since energy is comprised of BOTH heat and light and the 921 bulbs get VERY hot, common sense will tell you that this large portion of heat is simply wasted energy. Or worse, in the summer, it will make your air conditioner work harder.
How LED lights work – very very simple explanation
LED lights work VERY differently. Without getting too technical, the way the material is constructed causes an interesting microscopic (actually smaller still) structure. When electricity is applied to the structure, the electrons “jump around” in such a way that they will emit a photon of light. Since there are zillions of electrons working hard there are zillions of photons which means lots of light for you. The SUPER COOL idea is that this really does not cause any heat to speak of.

The application I FIRST tested the LED replacements is pictured here. Notice that any light only needs to send out light in a half circle (180 degrees) :
