Replacing front/rear overhead clearance lights

I am looking to replace with leds, all of the overhead oem front/rear-amber/red clearance lights and the (2) amber colored(1 on each side) side marker lights that blink in conjunction with the turn signals. I will need (5) amber for the front, (5) red for the rear, (2) amber for the side marker/blinker lights on our 2004 Newmar DS. Anyone have a suggested source/link that I could check? Thanks.

I have an 08 Dutchstar and have had to replace two of the clearance lights in the front. In 08 they were led but what I would call "low tech" back then. It was a very difficult job to dig thru the gobs of silicone they put up there and find the lead wires to tap in to. I was able to find exact replacements on Amazon but they are pricey. My suggestion to you is, if your lights need occasional attention due to a burnt bulb, i wouldn't mess with them. I don't know what your light situation is in an 04, but i wish I could just put a new bulb in and not have to change the whole light which is hard and expensive. jmo mark

Thanks to those that replied and with links. Can't remember if my oh lights have removable lens covers(screws) or not; if so, maybe just clean the lens and replace the filament bulbs with available led ones? I agree on the globs of silicon around the existing ones as that would be a chore to remove. All of my existing oh lights currently work except for one that is burnt out; they're just not as bright as I would like. I rarely travel at night and have no intention of doing so but have in the past been caught in rainstorms during the day which usually require lights to be on when using the wipers.

I have an 03 and all mine were LED, I've had to replace a few of them, they weren't a big deal to replace, got the replacements from Newmar, don't recall the cost but don't believe they were very expensive, or I would have remembered.

I replaced mine on my 05 KSCA. They were led and the plastic had crystallized. They were also full of dirt. Seems like they were around $10 each from Newmar. Not bad individually but about a hundred for the set. The globs of silicone were a bear. It's really a pretty poor design when you have one inch or larger holes drilled in the top front of your coach. Definitely a spot for water to enter.

Hello, I have a 2007 Newmar Ventana, I'm trying to figure out how to replace the marker lights. I unscrewed the lens, doesn't look like a bulb there to replace thinking I need to replace the entire until, I have 5 going across the top. I tried removing the fixture but it doesn't want to come out. Does anyone know how to remove these fixtures? It isn't a caulking issue as that is removed, I can wiggle the fixture but it won't pull from the hole so I can look for a model number. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I replaced mine as the bases were getting very weathered and the lens were faded. It has been awhile since I replaced mine but they are a Grote part, 47262 and 47263. I found a less expensive source than Newmar on line.

As I remember they come with no gaskets for the base or the lens. Newmar used both and they were available from Newmar.
