Camping world has an assortment of marker lights (online only) according to the website. This site has some replacement LEDs for bulbs like the 1157. Replacement 12v Trailer Light Bulbs at Trailer Parts Superstore

When I was looking for LED tail lights I found out that my model Country Coach typically used a Ford Pickup tail light and then I did find complete assembly available but a bit pricey! I think $200 +

CW site has no leds on the reference page but look up led lighting on google and you will find a lot of cheaper units to replace 1157s and also our inside bulbs. Great saving in power usage also.

In addition to Camping world, There are some truck stops that are called "Chrome Shops" I-80 (Iowa 80 on I-80) is one, Pedro's "South of Da Border" on the east coast is another.. There are more.

These have about the laregest selection of LED tail and marker lights you will EVER find...

And you can go to the Barjan Catalog and custom order at most any Truck Stop.

Side Note: Last I knew.> Barjan was affiliated with Tekonsha Engineering, And last I checked up on Tekonsha Eng.... A Classmate of mine was CEO. However now he runs Hampton Engineering. A few miles west of Tekonsha.. Also Hampton Amusements (Kiddy midway rides).
Home is where I park it!

I replaced all of my clearance, marker lights on my 2002 dolphin. They are called "Double Bullseye" and I purchased them from NAPA for about $9.00 each. They have 13 led's in each light.

Regarding tail lights, the 2005 Dolphin used 1995-2005 Ford Econoline/Excursion tail
light assemblies. I replaced them with these from Ebay : Ford Excursion 2000 2005 Tail Lamps LED Ruby Red | eBay
With rows of very bright LEDs , they are outstanding. They are plug & play so easy
install, but a bit expensive , I believe I paid about $220 for a set.
I'm not sure what the source with for the 2007 Dolphin tail lights.

Thanks for all the posts and info. Am looking for a replacement taillight assembly but am not sure what source(Make/model) automotive part to look for. The original is a Hella part. I believe that Hella is a German co, better known for their aftermarket driving lights. My unit has 4 lenses(2 LH & 2 RH). My next step is to remove one of the lenses and locate a part #. Also will post a photo later to see if anyone has an idea of which make / model auto/truck they may have also fit. Thanks, Gr'Andy'
