Need old round side light replacements

Hello..

1996 Mountain Aire

There are round lights between the front tires and the front bumper that are pointed towards the rear that I need to replace.

The whole assembly is just shy of 5 1/2” across any the glass itself is 4”

They are secured by three nuts and bolts in to a larger housing on the side of the body.

I can’t for the life of me figure out how to post a picture here, but I did add one to ‘my garage’ .. it’s at the bottom.. the only picture of a light.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

If you have a lot of spare time try taking pictures and measurements of your current lights then walk around a Wal-Mart or other large parking lot looking for similar lights. If your lucky you will find something then note the make & model of vehicle.

For example I've heard the headlights on my Tiffin are headlight assemblies from ‘99-‘04 Jeep Grand Cherokees.

But in reality - fog lights don't do much for extra night vision unless you replace with super bright LED but then your most likely illegal.

It has been my experience, that external lights will have very small DOT numbers molded somewhere on the lense. If you input that number on eBay, you will find what you are looking for and the price.

The " docking lights " Newmar installed on our vintage coaches were poorly located , and in later years were moved back to the area of the rear axle , where they should have been in the first place .

I do my best to avoid arriving at a site where backing in at night is required and can't tell you if mine work at all .
From the lens , I believe they were originally used on a tractor , so maybe ; Tractor Supply would be the place to start looking if you really want to replace them .

It might be a par 36 bulb. If you can access the back of the bulb it should have numbers printed on it. As mentioned Tractor supply might have them. They were common flood lights used on tractors, fork lifts, and other industrial equipment.

Try contacting Newmar parts partsdept@newmarcorp.com. They may have some laying around. My docking lights are just behind the front wheels. None further aft.
