I've changed them on my 06 Inspire. Just cut away the silicone remove the two screws holding the base, there is plenty of wire, butt splice the wiring install the light and re-silicone the light. The only problem is getting to the light. You need a 12 ladder or extension ladder.

Has anyone changed the marker lights to LED's. I assume the removal and re-install would be the same. Interested in what was thought about the outcome.

Haven't changed the clearance lights to led's yet but I did change the rear tail to led's and they worked great. You can see them a whole lot better. Let us know how they work.

I had a RV service center try and change the tail light bulbs to LED. I had managed to remove a existing bulb ( I could not have done it any harder) and went to a LED web site and ordered replacements. The RV service center tried 3 LED bulb blew the fuses and gave up. I have since found that there is a replacement assembly for the rear tail light that includes LED bulbs.

I have also tried to change headlights, to HD. After sometime whatever was used I had a electrical piece that appeared to have melted. I believed the fix was to use a lower voltage bulb. I am having the headlight lens changed in a couple of week, cant wait to see how this goes.

I have also changed almost all of the interior lights and I am very pleased.

It is on the very long list of things to do. Its all about things that are broken money and time.

I really appreciate everyones comments.

What is your question?

After removing screws, how do you remove the base? It feels like it still is connected to the coach.

The base of my rear clearance lights do not have silicone around them They apparently are anchored somehow behind the light base. Thanks for the response.

Gordon. When I replace the lights, they kinda stick, just pry loose with screwdriver. Be careful not to scratch the paint. They will come loose with a little effort. Don't be afraid their broken anyway.

Wally, with the new led units you can buy at most RV stores a pop on led lens that plugs into the original light socket. Easy change. Jim Veen, prior '96 Intrigue owner.

I would generally agree that has been the case for the interior, not so much for the exterior.

Chris, I made the change about 5-6 years ago including tail and backup lights and was very happy with the safety factor. I got my lights at a RV store in Grand Rapids Mi . If need I can find their name. Jim Veen, prior coach 96 Intrigue, 36 ft.

here's a link to the porch light, the LED version, same size and company, requires a couple of new holes, much brighter.

Here's a link to the side markers, LED, amber and red. They are a sealed unit with pigtail, black and white wire coming out of back. Replaced all my red and amber side markers with them, direct replacement, just LED

Chris, the less I got were by Bargmen, should be able to order from them. I have seen the tail and backup lenses at some camping worlds. If no luck I can check my source in Grand Rapids Mi as I am here for the Summer. Jim Veen
