Magna/Affinity Puck Lighting

Hello, Fellow CC Magna/Affinity Owners,
I have some ceiling puck light lens and the silver rings missing. Has anyone found a replacement for those? I'm told that they are made anymore.
Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Contact Kevin Waite in Junction City, OR. He has a good variety of the lighting fixtures used in our coaches.

I did. He was the one who told me that they don't make them anymore. He has a replacement fixture for $15/each without the ring so it is different than the ones on the coach.
Thanks for your suggestion.

I'm betting lots of different manufacturers used that same light. The ones in our Magna look like the same ones we had in our 2002 Newmar. Someone should have some laying around.
Check with Premiere RV in Junction City, they are right next to the CC location and do have some parts.

Thanks, Mr_D! I have already fielded the question from Damon and as a result have contacted Martine - will see what they have to offer.
Also, on a related note, I saw at least one or two of the rings fell while we were driving. Is there any tricks to keep them stay? That is why I'm missing some rings and the round glass.

On ours you have to twist the outside ring to get them on or off. Sometimes kind of hard to get a grip to do it.

Same here, but apparently some still untwist due to road rattle and come off.
Thanks for the feedback!

If they have halogen bulbs in them, the secret to keeping the rings on is replace the halogen bulbs with LED's. The heat from the halogen bulb distorts the rings and they fall off. I replaced all 32 halogen bulbs in my ceiling fixtures. Think of it as gaining battery capacity; helps ease the cost of the conversion.

A very small dab of clear silicone at the two spots that have a dimple that matches up with a spot on the fixture. Helps for a long time on ours. Yes, LED's when I can afford them.

I've got 40 of the LED's on order, supposed to be here Monday or so.

My DW already burned a hole in a cardboard box that she put too close to one of the halogens in the bedroom.

I had ordered 20 of these for around $15 and they seem to work pretty well. Ordered 60 more.

For LED lights for the pucks, I can highly recommend Cabin Bright as a good source. Best customer service, bar none. Yes, you may find them cheaper, but you won't find better service. I just replaced all of my halogens with LED warm bulbs and they look great. Contact Joe at Cabin Bright | Brighten Your World...
