2005 Itasca Suncruiser 35u right tail light lens

Life is good

Today I was driving down the highway and a chap pulled along side and flagged me down

Turns out my right tail light assembly had fallen out of the rear cap and was dangling by a wire

Sometime before I bought it someone had tightened the two screws too tight and cracked/broke the plastic ears though which the screws passed. I used duct tape to hold the lens assy in place

has anyone sourced this part from someone besides Winnie?

It is made in Taiwan and has the number 08-330-1914 R-R moulded into it. There are no other identifying marks

Thanks

Preston

An '05 should be a regular Ford Focus wagon taillight. In '06 they started using some aftermarket clear style ones.

My '04 Adventurer has the same lights, but they do say Ford on them.

Friends of ours have used the vendor referenced below but there are many online sources, including quite a few high rated ones on Ebay who sell tail light lenses and assemblies. They will be quite a bit less expensive than ordering the same part from a Winnebago or Ford dealer ...DH thinks you can save at least half the cost by not ordering through a dealer.

Here's the example


They have free shipping so it makes them the least expensive than the other sites I've seen on the internet when searching for this part.

It appears that Focus wagons may have used different assemblies for 2000-2002. I'm not sure, though, if that's true but I guess you'll have to find out for sure which ones Winnebago used for your coach.

Hi Chuck!

No, even better ...if you have a Meridian, then we both use the headlight assembly from a '98 Grand AM, not Grand Prix.

Ours is only $52.95 each with free shipping from that site !!

OOoooppps, yer right. When I got my Meridian 2 years ago I called Winnie an asked them what the lights were from and they told me right away. I figured if I ever took a rock to the headlight I better know what is in there. I also was able to order High Performance bulbs without having to remove the old ones first.
Your one smart gal !!

Thanks, Chuck but don't give me too much credit because I just noticed that the Grand Prix lights are 74.95 for the PAIR !! ...so that's really a good price. It just won't fit our Meridians.
