Swapping Bargman 94 92 series for Bargman 07 LED's

I'm sure I'm not alone in my hatred of the Bargman 92/94 series lights! In sunny conditions, you can barely see them! I've been searching for a replacement when I ran across the Bargman 07 LED. I did some research and found they come stock on some Keystone TT's. Well, I took the plunge and bought a set... decided to kill some time @ the campground this weekend and get them installed! Here are some pics:

Before I got started:


Here's the driver's side removed. It never ceases to amaze me, how these rv's are botched together... After the light was removed, the main thing was to remove the remaining adhesive and sealant.




The 07 series and the 92/94 series that I removed both have a channel on the underside of the lamp for sealant. I ran a bead around the entire channel before screwing it in position.

Overall, it was a fairly straight forward install. The main thing was to prep the trailerside for the new lamp by removing the remaining sealant and adhesive. After that, its just a matter of soldering some wires and drilling some new screw holes. The color coding on the wiring on the new lamps matched that of my TT, so it was just a matter of white to white, green to green, black to black.

The only only thing was to position the lamp to cover the 4 screw holes left behind from the old lamps, as well as the hole where the wires pass through. One hole, the inside top corner, isn't covered by the lamp itself, but it able to be covered by the sealant when you seal the light after its installed.

Bottom line, a worth while way to spend a couple of hours @ the camp site!

Those look great!
Just upgraded mine as well on my new unit. So much brighter on the brake & turn lamps. My brother has commented numerous times on this trip how they get your attention, even from extreme distances!

Thanks again to this forum for all the great ideas and advice.

Please tell me you cut that whole bigger and thats not how they leave factory. Thats crappy! Yo would think they would invest in a hole bit to make a clean hole.
