Need to replace running lights

RE: 2011 / Forest River / Georgetown / #300FWSNBF

I'm handicapped & don't do well on ladders. Several of the running lights on the front of my MH have died. There are 5 upper lights. Does anyone know what bulb size I should purchase & where I can find them? I promise not to climb the required 12' myself.

Regards,
jsm

Why not replace the running lights with LED running/marker lights,
most run anywhere from $7.00 to $13.00. Your local RV repair
shop or Camping World could replace them for you at possibly
an hours labor or less mostly less.

The reason I say this is that I like you can not climb and LED's
last many more hours than the old mark lights and are far
brighter thus less maintenance

194 auto bulbs, just replaced all 5 of mine.

Same bulb in both Amber and red side markers. Any automotive store should have them.

Your bulbs are probably good (they last a very long time), just have corroded contacts.
Get some contact cleaner and dielectric grease from an auto supply.

Who's going to do the ladder work?

I too would like to replace the rear lights with some type of LED light fixture or bulb.
I have a FR 21FBRS Mini light. We are travelers, not so much campers, so we are on the road a lot. Any advice here as to which way to go---bulbs or replace the whole fixture. Pls advise-- Thx

If it were me I would replace the fixture so I had the right lens for the led bulb to give me the brightest light.

If you are talking about the ones above the front windshield.
Take a look at these AMBER ones.
Lot of 10 New 3 4" Amber LED CLEARANCE Marker Bullet Truck Trailer Lights | eBay




They also have RED ones.

Hope this helps
