Rear clearance light problem (upper) on '04 HR Scepter

The right light of the 3 light cluster quit working, so like anyone I tried replacing the bulb (one of the new type which I like to call a flashbulb). Of course being an RV this didn't help. Tried removing the base and found all kinds of caulk and no way to get the socket out. The only way I can see to fix it is to remove a lot of trim from the rear closet to gain access and this ain't gonna happen. It can go to it's grave with this little light inop. How do the pros go about fixing this sort of problem? Thanks, Barditch

When I did my front clearance lights, I found the same caulking. I had to dig it out and also push some in. Once the caulking is out of the way, I was able to pull about 6" of wire out. With the wire exposed, I cut the old light off. Then I use a new LED unit and used waterproof connectors. Screwed it into the same holes and sealed it up. Look wonderful when it was done. I also did the rear and it was the same as above. Good luck. You should have extra wire in there too.

Also, if you decide to replace with LED clearance lights, look into these. Optronics have a lifetime LED warranty.
