Have you tried the parts dept. at an RV dealership? Amazon? Online part stores? Google?

Reese,

A word of caution for you as you seek answers on this forum. When you post a new thread it gets listed in both the Alpine Coach Owners Forum and separately as Recent Discussions for all irv2 members to see. This is why the responses to your question came from non-Alpine owners, as evidenced by their signatures.

In this case you were looking for a standard item used on many RV's. WRV did many things their own way and in many instances our issues are very coach specific. Not only by make but also by year, model and in some cases just a few coaches because they changed something for a week or two and then changed back.

In my experience the foremost authority on the 2003 models is Old Scout. He is very active on the forum. If your title includes something like: Need help with my 2003....
You'll probably hear back.

I know from experience that not all lenses will fit. I bought one that was the exact size as my old one, but the screw hole pattern was slightly off, and it would not work. Make sure you can return it just in case.

I think they are Gustafson lights. And you will need a gasket, they are cork and when you take the lens off it will disintegrate.

Maybe something else worth a try would be one of those headlight restoration kits

The lens is textured on the outside so I doubt that a lens polishing kit will work. The lens is about $12 to $13, I don't know how much the seal is. I would also replace the bulb with a high lum LED bulb while I had it off.

I just replaced my security lights on my 2004. I just took the lenses and installed them in my frames. The hole didn't match exactly so I had to elongate the hole to work.

Just for information. If the holes don't seem to line up exactly. Look on the outer edge of lens, there will be a embossed (top) to show which side is up.
4 screw holes are not evenly spaced, have found when properly orentiated screws should match up. Have replaced numerous covers. I buy complete units for 10 dollars gives me cover and gasket for less than separate parts and then just discard mounting base
