If you are talking about the high-mounted brake light in the middle of the coach, I replaced mine after the first year. It had faded and it stopped working. For some reason all of them lose the red in the lens. I went to a truck stop and found one that was just a little larger and had lcd lights. Pulled out the old one and connected the wires to the new one and all is well now. Cost was about six dollors if I recall correctly.

BTW I was sitting at Lazy Days campground (I bought the rig there the year before) and could not get service to even look at it. Service said come back in three months. I was not a happy camper at that time.

I found the part number As RV_Boy stated, it's a brake light. Part number 136917-01-000

Thanks RV_Boy...

Yes, that is somewhat normal. HOWEVER, I believe if you stand behind the rig while someone else stands on the brake pedal, you will find that the lights/lcd's inside still shine a very bright red!! As far as I'm concerned, it's just a cosmetic issue that most people never notice.

When I took mine off to inspect it, I found it appeared to be a sealed unit.

Must be the same light as on our Jayco Class C. It turned white within a year

I had the same problem with mine. After seeing what they cost and knowing that it would do the same thing. I took mine off and got a razo blade and scrapped on it till the white was gone,and took some 1000 sand paper to it and got it smooth down and sprayed it with automotive clear. It looked like new. It's been two years and I mite do it again. While the coach is home the sun shines on it most of the day

My high mount brake light did the same thing right after we got the coach in 2005. Although the red LED's still were visible thru the cover, I replaced it with one I ordered from Winnebagoparts.com (mobility RV). The replacement light has held up well.

I don't want to start anything like I did on the "sad" thread but I just went out and looked at mine and the lens is blood red. Am I missing something here?

Congrats! You got one of the good ones ...seems the vendor from about 2002 on provided a bunch not as well made as yours!

I believe it was $17 or so plus shipping. I found the manufacturer's name on the light, called them for a replacment, but the price at mobility RV was less if I remember correctly.
