ST lighting

I have a 98 Tradewinds, My main interior lights are 30w fluorescent fixtures made by ST Lighting. I am looking for a replacement lens for one of them.
it measures 17-15/16"L x 6-1/2" w. I have searched online, only found thin-light replacement lenses, and the dimensions are not the same. Any Ideas on where these can be found?

thanks for the help.

https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/...ent-lights.htm I found this source for the lites, which seem to be made by thin lite. Maybe call them to see if they sell your lenz or could recommend a lite to replace it with.

My Rig has Thin-lights.. In the 10 years it's been rolling down the roads I've had to replace several lamps.l. Well I am not offically tired of replacing lamps (The bulbs or florcesent tubes) so next time one fails I have LED's in stock.

My Recommendation: UPGRADE to LED fixtures.. Since you can not find a replacement lens/cover.. You can simply replace the full fixture (A way simpler job than what I'll do)

One comment.. the 12 volt LED strips I have.. Folks yammer how they are designed for 12 volt and RV's are 13.6 to 15 depending on the current charger mode.. One of my strips came with a short "Demo strip" and battery.. i dropped the battery (And switch) and hooked the demo strip up in parallel with the main ceiling fixture over my head.

Same has been working 100%, since January.... I think there will be no problem with the well within specification voltage of the RV.
