Forester MBS 2401w Tail light replacement

Although I don't now have access to my rv, I am told the passenger seat tail light is out. The person told me itís a "sealed LED light" and they would have to order a new one from Forest River and replace.

Really? The tail lights on a 2401w are proprietary, not an "off the shelf" item?

I ordered one online some time ago. Took the manufacturer of the light . Easy to find. Also do a search for RV tail lights. Not proprietary at all

You might want to check that you have power to the inoperable light assembly.

tail light replacement

check with manufacturer...can probably get them direct...just call if "Command" brand...worked for me. Just be sure to apply sealer as recommended to keep moisture out...that was the reason for the failure of mine.

I assume you mean the one on the right. It's LED - doubt it's "burnt out"

Oh. Did he say passenger seat? No, I think he meant driver's seat. They're backwards when you're facing forwards. Or something.

Dave, you're getting me more confused than a cow standing on Astroturf.

I think you have a bigger problem, as the taillights should not be on the seats, they should be on the back of the rig!

Unless you meant passenger "side"
