Cool Outside light cover

How do you remove the outside light cover to replace bulbs?

OK, so you should have the rounded lens then. They are very tricky to get out, and I'm not 100% sure of the best way because I've only had my round one out one time. The older, more square lenses were much easier.

You have to just work the lens with your hands and squeeze if you can. Get the lens to slide forward toward you out of the bottom channel. Then it should fall right out into your hands.

If that doesn't work, there should be a small drain hole for condensation to drain near the bottom center of the lens and light housing where the two meet. See if you can get a small small screwdriver or pick tool in there and gently pry it out.

I seem to remember putting it back in the same way, but I may have reversed it and put the top in last.

It is certainly tricky though, but they're just held in with the plastic collars and no fasteners.

There is a post here somewhere on this. I didn't find the post but here are the pics







As you can see, the bottom outside lens needs to come out and it sort of pivot up out of there once you get the bottom out.

That is the front hitch light out of a 2004 T2499. The yellow bug light by the awning are the same light just yellow lens

Good luck, it is tuff the 1st time until you know how it comes out. They for sure did not want them to fly out going down the road

John

Thanks John, I went searching for that post too and couldn't find it. I tried a few different search lines and went a few pages into each.

I don't normally do that, but I did remember you had the pictures. It really got me thinking though, that's what's so great about this forum, we just go and answer the question instead of telling the person to go search for it. Here I knew exactly what I was looking for and who wrote it and couldn't find it, someone new would really have a hard time.

Your so right Kitty!!! Great pics and info John. I know when we first got our Sunny and had to replace a bulb we had a hard time with ours. It seemed kind of stuck until we got it down how to pop it out.

I just went through this today, LOL! Question: does anyone know the exact replacement bulb? My burned out bulb has no info written on it...it is just a wedge bulb. Will any 12volt wedge base bulb work?

Odds are good for your year camper it is a #921 bulb if you are talking the tongue light over the LP tanks. That is the brighest and hotest...

There are other bulbs that will fit in there as well with different wattages.

Walmart or the Auto parts stores have them. I use the web to find the right bulbs then go buy localy.

Here is 921 18 watt
921 Search Results | Bulbs.com

Here is 922 12.5 watt
922 Search Results | Bulbs.com

Here is a 906, less power 9 watt
906 Search Results | Bulbs.com

There are lot's more that will fit that T5 wedge base.

Hope this helps

John

Thanks John....the light actually is the one under the awning....I guess I will grab an 18 watt bulb to shed as much light as I can under the awning.

On my 2004, every light in the camper that used that style bulb was a 921... I have since converted many to LED's to save power when boondocking. Those 921 are bright but they draw power big time. 18 watts at 12 volts is 1.5 amps. Turn on 5 lights like that and you have 7.5 amps draw. As long as you are hooked to shore power no problem.
