Vista 36Y Fridge Lightbulb

If you have a 2015 Winnebago Vista 36Y, you may want to check the lightbulb in the lower section of the Whirlpool fridge. Mine had a 25 watt bulb (incandescent appliance type) in it. After removing the plastic cover to gain access to the bulb, I see there is some discoloration from bulb heat on the fridge sidewall. I have removed it and am trying to find an LED replacement. It has a different base (smaller, not a candelabra base) than the appliance bulbs that came in the Microwave.

If anyone has found an LED replacement i would appreciate it if you would share what it is.

What #'s are on the bulb? Or from the owners instructions?
I would guess that you don't have a light w/o 120 V AC?
I replaced my lamp with LED but now wondering if I should have.
I read 'someplace' on the internet that in cold weather the smarts in the refrigerator will turn on the lamp in the refrigerator to keep it from freezing up while still cooling down the freezer?
Anyone know if that's the case?

It has "120v 25 Watts" on the Bulb. The Bulb has a bluish tint just like this link.

What is the part number on the LED bulb if you don't mind me asking?

I bought adapters and LED bulbs that had a candelabra base. Adapters like this.

My lights are 12V, replacement was off e-Bay, no part # and the install was a home brew. as the replacement IMO was not bright enough.

I guess I should've checked to see if my link was there.

Sorry about that.

Thanks Sam. I never even knew you could buy adapters.
