Headlight out/ Questions

One of my headlights went out. Is this a DIY job ? If so, what kind of bulb do I need to order. I noticed my brights still work.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Depends how much work it is to get to the bulb. Is the back of the headlight housing accessible, or can the housing be easily removed from the front of the coach? If so, pull the bulb out and take it to the nearest auto parts store.

On our '05 Dolphin. the headlights are accessible from "inside" - the socket into which the bulb fits is detachable by twisting and removal from the light "fixture".

do you mean behind the fender? so you don't take off the outer lens?

Yep, I just sit in the space between the front of the coach and the wheel and grab the light socket and twist. (& shout when I ding my knuckles)
