Glo-Brite is out of business and the lens and lamp are discontinued. I've found a number of the lenses in red, but none in amber as of yet.

Their oval shaped lens is called M1 Series Clearance /Marker Lamp. Hope this helps.
Thanks, but that's not the correct light/lens.

Hope this helps and Happy camping
In this case the company making the light/lens went out of business. I know the brand and model number, but can find none for sale. There are none online in Amber that I can find. Believe me, I've looked.

They were used on RVs from multiple companies. Replacement lenses are super scarce.

I saw those clearance lights on the floor model at the dealer when we ordered ours. They sold that one and got another which we bought and it has the 1" button ones like in the photo below. Any chance you can change them out for these? If you give me the part number, I can call a trailer parts house up north of us and see if they have them. They have lots of old and discontinued parts. If they have it, I can drop it off in Tucson.

Creativepart, I found these online, if these are what you need 147680-02-01A. Try Winnebago Parts at 1-800-933-7742.

Sorry didn't read your post #10 never mind!

I will call the Trailer parts house tomorrow anyway with that number anyway.
Also, I can keep my eyes open at Quartzsite

I had the Lazy Days parts guys contact Winnebago and the part is fully discontinued.

However, Lazy Days had 5 of the Red ones in stock. So, I bought two red lenses and I'll put the two red lenses on the two outside clearance lights and that will free up two Amber lenses. Then I'll use one of those to cover the missing amber lens on one of the the three middle clearance lights - and I'll have one extra.

I'll put them all on with silicone to hold them in place.

I may stop looking for an Amber lens - and just live with this. No one would ever notice or even think it's amiss. But if I do find the amber lens someday, I'll put it back the correct way.

Thanks all. Having that part number makes all the difference.

Any chance you can remove the lens and base then install the LED ones FR is now using? It's still under warranty, won't FR do something?

For those looking for info on this part here is the complete detail:

Glo-Brite 122y Replacement Lens Amber Winnebago 147680-02-01A

My Forester is a 2015 and from all I can tell Glo-Brite went out of business a couple of years before that. So, FR was mounting this part on RVs even though replacements are not available up until the 2016 model year.

The 2016's seem to have a small round LED without a lens in place of these clearance lights. At least the one I saw did.

And when I find this thing I'm putting silicone on all those lens so they won't pop off in the future.
You are correct, Sir . Small round leds on our 2016.

If you are putting these on the front nose clearance lights , you may not want to! in my neck of the woods its against the law to have forward facing red lights! unless you are a emergency vehicle
