Like to replace amber clearance lights with LED

One of my amber clearance lights is out. This is the second one that I have had to replace. With the first one I learned that "all clearance lights are not the same". I have no idea about brand, or model. With the first one after visiting a couple of auto stores and Walmart, I gave up and just called Newmar. But it is the same technology as the old one. I would like to upgrade all of them but don't know what to order. And I am paranoid about replacements not fitting correctly and having water leaks. Suggestions would be appreciated. I have an '04 Newmar Kountry Star gasser. Model 3740,

You can get these on Amazon.com.
Led lights are polarized. Meaning if you plug them in and they don't light. Turn them around.
These work great.

Sorry. You don't have to change your light fixtures. Just the bulbs. You can also google the lens type and number and replace just the lens which are cheap.

I replace all my clearance lights with sealed LED units from
LED Lights, Bulbs & Accessories - SUPER BRIGHT LEDS.
More than likely There's a direct replacement for the size you have. Click on the light for a dimensional drawing and compare to one of your light bases. It comes with 6 LEDs in each light. You will have to cut off the connectors and wire direct. I caulked around the wire hole and screw hole for a leak proof installation.
The light comes with a chrome or stainless bezel. The installation took 30 minutes on each end of RV. My ordering part no. Was PBM-X6 for my 03 DSDP. They have been on since 07 with no problems.

My 2004 KSDP came with LED clearance lights and they are not pluggable. When they go out, you have to replace the whole fixture. They leak and short out from water IMO.

Superbrightleds.com is the place to shop for sealed replacements of your clearance lights. They have dimensional drawings of each light on the website.
Pull one of your current lights to get the dimensions and compare length, width, and attachment holes. They have SEALED bright LEDs that you may never have to replace after installing. For a leakproof light installation just use silicone caulking around the wire hole and the screw holes.
Browse this thread and you will find where I replied to another inquiry. You will find the part numbers for the lights that I used on my 03 DSDP front and rear.
