Take the four screws from the top of the hand, rotate it gently and pull the metal braket off the bulb will be in it. you can purchase the bulbs from fleetwood.

Take the screws out of the handle mount and remove it from the side of the coach. If there is a bulb in the mount then change it. If not, you have answered your question. No bulb, no light in the handle..

I think you will find all Pace's have a lighted handle.

My Pace has a lighted handle. The bulb was burned out when I got it. The bulb is in the bottom and just took a little fiddling with the bottom cover to get it off to put a new bulb in. My RV is in its winter sleep now but if I remember right the handle light only comes on with the 'patio' (over the door) light.

Both of our DSDP's have had lighted ones, although the new ones are metal as the plastic ones will eventually crack and break. I ordered two plastic replacement handles although they don't say NEWMAR on them at least I will have spares. If I ever have to replace a light I'll probably go with an LED.
