I need a combo passenger side fog/driving light for my 2000 Sea Breeze 1331. I have tried the salvage yard in Carthage, MO and was wondering if anyone knows of other places around the country who might have one. The best replacement that I can find is a PIAA which is quite expensive and I will probably have to purchase both sides.

There are several salvage yards in the Elkhart, Indiana area. Just Google Elkhart RV salvage, and you will get some. Off the top of my head, I don't remember the one that I use all the time. I bought rocker recliners for my unit under 200 bucks each.

wagatlen,
National RV did not make the head light.
Get the part number off the lense it will be a GM or Ford part number. Do a internet search and you will find a number of after market manufactures. One link attached.

I have a '98 Tradewinds and had the same problem (broken lens on the drivers side). If yours is the same as mine, it was made by Grote, part # 64581-5. The PIAA lights are quite expensive and are not an exact fit. The Grote combo light kit is available on-line for about $80. After doing a bit of measuring and experimentation (and pricing), I chose to go with a set of Hella Optilux 2020 combo fog/driving lights. They are actually a bit smaller than the Grote made originals and fit very nicely in the molded areas in the front cap. My decision to go with the Hella set was made a little on price. Amazon.com had them on sale for $48 with free shipping. That is about half of what the Grote set would have cost. If you want your coach to look original, than by all means order the Grote set. If you just want a good set of lights, than I recommend the Hella set. If you just need a lens for the passenger side, I'll sell you my old one for $10 plus shipping. I chose to replace both lights because the reflective coating on the back of the housing had deteriorated after 10 years and was no longer projecting a good light. So, if you want good working fog/driving lights then I certainly recomment replacing them both as I did. Cheers!

I just checked with Amazon.com and they have one set of the Grote 64581-5 in stock. It is on sale for $67.79 with free shipping. If these are the ones you want, then I'd grab their last set while it is still in stock rather than have to wait for a backorder. Cheers

Richard, Thanks a million. I just ordered the Grote set from Amazon. That way I can replace both of them and they will both have the same intensity.

I wonder why the Grote light didn't show up in the google search. The service department where my RV is stored will be thrilled. They had tried to get a light from NAPA but it was way too tall.

Thanks so much!
