Hard to find running light's? Help

Those look pretty similar to the ones on our 2014 3051. Try eBay. I bought a couple red and a couple orange. Weren’t inexpensive but I have a spare now and planning on siliconing them on this spring.

Had one blow off last season.

Look at the name / number on one of them and use that to search.

Assuming you are looking for just the lense that is.

They are glo-brite 122y (r for red). And they are out of production. But some lens are on Ebay, now sit down, at 20 bucks each. I just used some GE silicone yesterday to try to keep them up as one fell off after a temp shift in the driveway, after I just checked them a week AGO!

Johnny's rv (good folks there, south of Mobile) had a stash of "r" a few months back but I needed yellow like the rest of us.

It would be great if Mr. Clemmon's seccessor would tell us the replacement part number to use. BC continues to be engaged, but now over in the dyna world (Hope to relocate there one day if my ship comes in).

Anyway the duty falls to us so I am in the process of searching for (hopefully LED) replacements.

*The orginal the best I can tell leaning over the top of the coach before the big rain today are 3.5 x 1.5 with 3.0" hole centers, two wire design. I am going to pick up a RV Designer E387 Amber Winnebago Clearance Light that has the same center hole spacing but are 4.0 wide. I thnk they will fit the eyebrow opening, anyway worth the 10 bucks to try...

Other ideas are:
Optronics*MCL49 SERIES
3-7/8 x 2* *3" centers

MCL0028 SERIES oval
3-3/4 x 1-13/16* *2-11/16 center

blazE
535BA - LED*
4 x ?* 3.0 center


589BA - LED 4” R
4 x 1-1/2* *3.0 center

Anybod willing to chime would be helpful.....

No intent to hijack the lens post, just want to reslove the lamp issue for all and for good. Made a hot lap to/from the gulf yesterday and stopped by Johnny's rv. They had a dozen or so 122r lens but no 122y (yellows). Picked up a E387 winnabago lamp to test out. Hope to check fitment before the first of the month. Would like to find an E387 led, no luck yet..

Any leads or ideas? Hopefully we can settle this...... If the E387 are a go my five 122y's are up fur trade....

Looks like those lights are recessed. That's a bummer, as you can't go with something else very easily.

Etrailer has a lot of clearance lights. Maybe you can find something that will fit:

Etrailer's pretty good at giving you dimensions.

My experience a few years ago with new clearance lenses, led bulbs and silicone sealant when rehabbing an old Scotty travel trailer was not good. The equivalent bulbs worked great until moisture somehow still got to all 8 of them and they quit working one by one. I went back with incandescent bulbs.
Hope you find some better LED'S than I did.

May want to check the lights in the new 3051S also. We were picking up some blinds today for our 2014 and saw a new one in the lot.

The area for the front marker lights looked identical to ours but there were small bullseye lights in the center of each. At least on the front.

I’m guessing it might leave some holes where the originals are now though but that could be filled.

anybody, anybody?

Anybody wish to chime in about dealer access to replacement parts? My dealer (Dandy rv) sold to CW a year after getting our coach, the new operators were of little help when I inquired...

As a side note we ordered our coach and when it came in Dandy delayed deliver it to us for a week!! Dw was not happy...

But that was really great as they put it in a sevice bay and ran all of the systems until pick up. We randomly showed up and the water was on external, the h/w was on (elect), the heat pump humm'en, jacks down, tv on (even brought our dvr to ring out sat). The pdi was actually a shut down, restart, and then a final shut down of each system. Did not bring a dvd to pick up and did have to go back for repair, live and learn.

Hope to find equal support when we buy again ,just a thought...

You can go to the FR website and inquire directly. Getting the part numbers for my rear marker light was like pulling teeth. So, I went to the FR website and had them give me the part numbers for all of the marker lights on the coach. Hopefully, ?I won't need them.
