Use a meter or test lite and determine your HOT (positive) and GROUND (negative) wiring.
From the new Lamp, run one wire to Ground and the other to HOT. The switch will be between the hot or ground to signal (seitch) on and off.

The other wires may be going to the other lights in the bays.

CC..... Happy Rving!!
