2013 Georgetown 377xl running lights

I bet one of you has dealt with this before. I have one of the front amber running lights go out on my 2013 377XL. It was noticed during inspection while being serviced, but the shop could not seem to get the correct replacement. If you've replaced one; please help.

Good question. I`ve got a couple that are getting weathered and brittle. I`d like to swap them out for LED`s.

I'm under the impression these are the light housings at the top of the RV! The 3157 bulbs are everywhere. I'm sure if that's what it was they would've found them!

Wrong impression. Those are not DRL although I don't know why the OP said front; there are no rear DRL's..

I think he's talking about these but like it was said very limited information.

He said front amber running lights. That could be either the parking lights like the one Iggy showed. Or the ones I think they are which are the upper clearance lights. Everyone calls things different than what they are really called. Hopefully the OP will come back and verify!

The DRL’s on a Ford chassis are the low beam headlamps!

I was referring to the front small amber running lights. The closest replacement I found are Peterson M181A single diode amber LED's. I've ordered two and expect them this coming week. The description and pics etrailer shows are about the closest match to mine. Let you all know after they get installed. I'm guessing that the replacement lamps being mentioned (3157) are the old style with incandescent plug in lamp.
And Yes to that 'find another shop".

That is known as a clearance light not running light which would make Dodge Guy correct.

Sorry, but I'm not that savvy; I misnamed the 'running' lights, I meant 'clearance' lights.

I thought clearance lights were along the top and sides, little yellow lights.
The lights indicated in the picture appear to be directional lights, am I missing something?

They are directional lights in the picture. Top lights are clearance lights and side lights are marker lights. This is what I understand them to be. It is true these nomenclatures do get jumbled and I may have jumbled them also.

That's not my rig.

I'm guessing that's a picture of the front of "Iggys'" rig.

I was getting a bit confused with bulb #. In the process of replacing a turn signal bulb on my 2012, and picked up the incorrect ones, oh well it happens.

The ones in the first pic are not from the OP. The OP wasn't sure and has finally clarified they are the clearance lights.

I'm assuming the newer style, 13 and up, have the small LED lights? If so enones you ordered may work. Not sure as I have the older style incandesant housing.

Keep us updated.

I replaced all 5 of my clearance lights this summer with $6 LED clearance lights from my local RV shop. The back housing had a square quarter inch protrusion around the wires, so I ground that off with the Dremel for a flush fit. Also the lights had 3 screw holes at 120 degrees, instead of 2 at 180 degrees - but the spacing was almost right and I made it work - just caulked the 3rd hole. At the time I thought of taking pictures but thought nobody would care. Now here I am sharing with no pics.

My 2013 had LED's for Clearance lights; the Peterson M181A single diode worked as replacement; be sure to use plenty of lube when pushing the grommet seal back in.
