From the close-up pic it looks like a sealed led light. If so, you will have to pop it out of the rubber grommet and get a replacement light. It helps to spray the rubber with dry silicone when installing the new light.

Messy it is!!!!!! On my old TT you remove the rubber grommet and light all in one piece.....To re install you put grommet back in hole and then put light in grommet....You may need a little Vaseline on rubber so it will slip into grove....J

Here is the light pulled out. It's has sealer around it as the grommet is smaller then the hole. I have good voltage to the connection and also probed through the wire shield just below the bulb and have good voltage. Going with bad light bulb now. Pic is just to let you know how its wired. Those are crimp connectors.

Read somewhere if you have led lights you can use a 5 amp fuse and jump the top of your 7 Way plug to have the trailer lights illuminate. Top being where the protruding key of the plug is. Beats having to hook up the TV.

Yes...you can even put a 12V flasher across these terminals and they will flash the running lights....Some RV dealers do that here at RV shows.....Brings attention!!!...J

I have seen "poor" crimping ..wires were NOT twisted before crimping...Wiggle & pull them before you put back together...J

Got the new lights today. I replaced the left one. The replacement is a different style then the original. Looking from a distance it's hard to tell the difference. My OCD say replace the right one and keep it as a spare. Looks like the left one is a tad dimmer.
