Well I'm not sure yours is like mine but here is my take on it. I have a 98 Pace Arrow as well that has a roof marker light burned out. My light is a Truck-Lite 30200Y (this was the number on the lens if I recall). This light is a 2" round amber light. This light has two female bullet type connetors on the back of the light, I think that all you have to do is pull the wires out from the lens and put the new one in. Now as far as removing I have not done that yet but upon looking at the light I think that it can only be held in place by caulking around the light. I plan on carefully cutting the caulking around the light to remove it. I also have a string with a loop on it to put on the wires I remove so that they cannot fall back into the front cap area just in case they are not secured somehow. I've been planning on doing this project but we have had so much rain lately that I keep putting it off, plus it's been burned out for over a year.

pabubby, finally replaced my cab light. I made it harder job than it needed to be. If yours are like mine, after you remove the caulking, just twist the light out of the aluminum bracket that you can see in the attached photo. Hopefully these pictures will help you. At least next time I'll know what to do.

If you have the same light I have look at the back of it as well and it will give you a good idea on how to twist the light and remove it. I didn't need the string for the power plug but I just verily had enough wire to pull it out to plug the new light in. Job done though!

Here is a link showing the Truck-Lite mounting bracket for my light.

Further update, I just checked the continuity of my old light and it appears ok. Double check to make sure your did not just come unplugged as I think this it what actually may of happened to mine.
