replacing bulbs

We have not had our 2475 very long, but are getting ready for our first long trip. Here is my question, I was trying to ck the size bulbs in the exterior lights so as to buy replacements and could not get the covers off the switch controlled side lights( the ones shaped like a butter dish). It is cold so I was perhaps being a little to careful. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Marvhil,

I don't know what type of exterior porch lights you have, but both lenses are very easy to remove.

If you have this type (which I think you do), the lenses are snap-in, but I have personally not had one to know how exactly they come out. From a brief description for the light I found online, it says the lens is snap-in, so I hope they are correct. Picture of this version of porch light:



If you don't have this, you probably have the other version that looks like this:

or (without the switch on outside)


I have a lot of experience with this light. I looks complicated, but its not. simply grasp the lens near the outsides on top and in the center on the bottom and pull out. On the older lights, removing the lens is easier because the plastic housing has weathered and doesn't hold the lens as tight.

Thanks to John B. for help on posting pictures! Your instructions make posting pics really easy!

Good luck removing your lens,
Jon

Mine is the first type. I assumed it was squeeze and pull, but they did not want to come out. Maybe I will just wait til we get to where it is warm and try again. Thanks

I went around mine and wrote all the bulb numbers down on the entire camper. There is a few different sizes inside and outside.

I have a 2004 model and the outside lights looks just like what Sunline Fan posted that looks like this


If you want, tonight I'll go and get the bulb list and post if that will help any.

Let us know.

Oh and if it is cold, like below 40F, I too would be cautious on fiddling with the lens. I remember the first time I took mine off, I had to squeeze, wiggle, fiddle to figure it out. In the cold, this may not be a good thing to do unless you absolutely have to.

Glad to help if I can

John

PS. Sunline Fan, glad to see the pic post helped. In this case, it works GREAT!!. Seeing is the fastest way to get the point across and we know a lot better that that is what we have.

Ok Let's see if this helps

The bulb is a number C922. They are in the tongue light, the outside yellow bug light and the outside light on the back side of the camper.

I will prep a pic post of all the bulbs as I finally found my list.... I put it in one of those real safe keeping places. So safe that I could not remember where.... but I found it.

Now to remove the lens.... I had to re-learn all over again. I took some pics this time so I remember next time.

This one is off the tongue light but all 3 outside ones are the same.

There are 2 angled tabs on the bottom that hold it in.


First you have to push UP on the bottom to realease the tabs. Use 2 hands, at each corner.


Then sort of pull at the bottom and the rotate the bottom out. The top will then drop down and come out.


I'll get the rest up in a day or so. I'll make a new post as others my want to know all the bulb numbers as well.

Thanks

John

Hope this helps

I broke one of those light housings this weekend on my porch light. The amber lens survived though. Do you know where I can get one? They seem very hard to find on the internet. Not sure who made them. My trailer is a 2007 289SR. One of the last
