I did the same on our RV but have had bad experience over time... they seem to dim.. not completely burn out...from what I've read I believe it's due to hi voltage during charging...same experience w cheap G4 bulb replacement on the boat..they start to flicker after awhile.
Latest attempt are some G4 LED's from Super Bright.. they said 14V should not be a problem...so far they are OK
