LED Marker Lights

When I started to work on an intermittent backup camera replacement, I found only 4 loose rivets holding the spoiler on. I have removed the spoiler and reinstalling it with all new rivets as not to lose it while driving. While I have all the marker lights off I want to replace them with LED bulbs. Does anyone know what led bulb replacement I should use?

I recently replaced the front marker lights with LEDs. These are Truck-Lite model 25250Y and are an exact replacement for the originals (at least on my model coach). Ryderfleetproducts had the best price at the time. I have not replaced the rears but I don't think they were made by Truck-Lite although if you check their online catalog you can probably find an equivalent.

The exact replacement is LED red marker lamps (Optronics MCL-71RB) from eTrailer.com. Use code 98XL3 for a 5% discount.

I am 2 numbers off your vin#. I replaced the rear with Truck-Lite 2675 and side clearance with 2675A (made bracket to hold them in from back for side ones). They have chrome and the outside and are bright. I have not found ones to fit the front, since they have to be an exact size. The lites were installed before WRV painted it, so if you take them off, there is grey primer under them.

I got them at Potter Webster Company 503 283 4792 in Portland for $7.44 each.

Like Algoma, my front and side marker lights were by Truck-Lite. The LED version is Truck-Lite model 25250Y. Fit perfect and look great!

Jim,

The rear lights Takepride referenced are the ones I used on my spoiler a few years back. Exact same size and appearance, except that they were LED instead of incandescent. Same screw hole pattern too.

If you use them, check the polarity of the wiring harness. I connected the black wires to black wires and white wires to white wires, and they didn't work. The polarity of the harness was wrong. Check one before you crimp the wires. Easy fix, but a nuisance.

Glad to hear you didn't join the lost spoiler club. We have too many members already. Check the bracket corners for stress cracks at the sharp bends while you are up there.

See you at Mammoth in a couple of months.

My front, side and rear LED markers were all exact fits, no alterations. Same screw holes.

I just looked up the marker lights at e-Trailer. Are the amber lights an exact fit also? I got my camera installed yesterday and the spoiler has been reinstalled with pop rivets. The install seems to be secure, but I will periodically check it from now on.

Yes. The Truck Lite ambers fit exactly. The cut out is the same and the screw holes match. The edge is beveled inward, allowing for a better caulk line on the front markers, though unneeded on the side markers. They came with foam gaskets for seating.

My front markers were originally glued in, gasket and all, then caulked around. Great seal. Worth doing it the same way the second time.

P.S. - The Optronics rear markers matched perfect, too.
