02 Adventurer marker lights

The metal bracket that holds the front marker light fixture in place has rusted out.

Any suggestions on where to get a replacement?

Thanks,

Ron

If you can't find a replacement, I would go with LED marker lights. I changed all my lights out in 2007 and have never had a light out or any other problem since. Also having five bulbs in each light is bright. They are hard wired in so there is no electrical corrosion problems. The whole light is encapsulated so there is no water or dirt problems. The cheapest ones I found were at a truck stop.

How do you mount the light in the recess where the original light is installed?

Thanks,

Ron

I kept looking until I found LED lights that were the same size as the old light. The LED light has mount holes but the lens do not pop off. As i said they are a sealed unit, which is great. Also by hard wiring the lights, the old bad connection and corrosion problems are gone. With a 80,000 hour life, I don't think I will be replacing them.

Where did you find your replacement light, most of the newer ones are smaller than mine?

Thanks,

Ron

Mine were dripping rust down the front cap so I replaced them with factory ones from Lichtsinn Motors. Stainless steel ones would have added, what, 2 bucks to the vehicle cost? I had to pound out the old ones as they were glued in and in doing so, loosened up the rusted windshield frame just before we got 4 inches of rain in a FL campground. Pots and pans caught almost a gallon of water, then I replaced the windshield 2 days later as it was cracked anyway, probably from the rust.

Thanks everyone

Mine were rusted but not dripping down the outside. One frame fell out and I had to glue it back in to hold the fixture. Had to replace one socket, needed to replace another one but didn't have time to go and get one. Cleaned it up a bit and hopefully it will last until I can get a replacement.

You're right, another shoddy workmanship from Winnebago, just like the windshield frame rust.

On my coach, I found the replacement in a RV dealers catalog. For my neighbors coach, We found them at a truck stop. If you are near exit 201 in Jackson, Ga. (on 1-75) They are several truck stops there. I should add that not all LED's are a sealed unit. Some have a replaceable cover. That would be a good idea for sun damage. You could just change the lens when the sun rots it.
