Interior LED Dome light Covers

My wife and I just bought a 2022 Surveyor Legend 202RBLE, one of the interior round LED dome lights has a missing cover. Iíve searched Amazon and other rv parts websites with no luck. Anyone have any suggestions on where I could get one of these dome light covers? Thanks!

A photo of a light with the cover would greatly help.

Here's a few pictures... it also has a push button in the center to turn it on and off.
Thanks for any help!

I'm replacing some of those lights and have no use for what I've removed. I'd be happy to send you a cover for free next week. Send me a private message if you're interested

Lightbulb Dome lights

Hi, just wondering about how you are replacing them? They are insanely bright and I'd like something else too.

I'm replacing them with marine lights. You can either find a LED fixture or buy one with an incandescent bulb and either keep that bulb or swap it for a LED type.

If you're going to do the swap it path make sure the fixture you buy can host a LED bulb. I've swapped bulbs with a double bayonet base.

I'm very fussy about not having harsh lighting so am willing to pay a bit for a better solution; these fixtures are not cheap.

I totally agree with replacing them, though I haven't done that myself yet. The clever engineers at FR positioned the only light operated by the master switch to where it shines like the sun in your eyes if you're on the bed.

I don't have the link but I think someone here may have posted a clever DIY shade solution that looked nice.

I just added a dimmer to the fixture over the bed. Nothing special, just a simple 500-ohm potentiometer in series with the + lead to the light.

These are in use in at least some current Forest River campers, so a dealer should be able to provide/get one. You also might try contacting Bontragerís Surplus (Bontragers.com).

As for the brightness of these lights, I'm going to address the color temperature first by inserting a CTO (Color Temperature Orange) gel into each cover. I've already installed a dimable/tunable LED strip that works well for us at night.
