Lens for Flagstaff fifth wheel porch lite

Where can I get original parts for the lens on the porch light. We tried ordering one from the dealer and we received a generic one and it doesn't fit. The oval shape is slightly off so water will come in and the tabs are the wrong size and location.

Is there a place we can find a parts list for this 2013 RV or someone to contact who would know? I've done a search on this forum without result. The broken lens has no numbers on it that I can see at all.

FR seems to be using fixtures from a China company. They are almost like Barkman fixtures but just a hair different. Lens do not interchange. You would be better of and likely almost less expensive to change out the fixture.

Doesn't everything we buy come from China? Lowes and Home Depot are their outlets. Surely there is some American store that made that part first and China copied it? Can you call Forest River and order the same part? Changing the entire part isn't bad but I don't like drilling extra holes only to go somewhere and see the part I had been looking for.

Understand your dilemma, but the holes are covered and the fixture should be set in putty and caulked on the top side.

If you buy a new fixture, buy at least 1 or 2 spare lens also.

Great idea on the spare lenses.
