May be easier to just replace it.

Same Problem

My QDH just failed state inspection because of this. Know where to get a replacement assembly? I haven't checked out the mounting yet - I'm guessing that I get to the back of the lamp assembly by opening the left engine access door and reaching around??? This looks like an LED light assembly, but that would surprise me on a 2005 model. Maybe the previous owner replaced the original with an LED version.

Here are pix of mine

Called Tiffin service, and the tech said that since I can't see any screws it must be self-adhesive surface mount. I tried to pry off the bracket, but it ain't budging. I'm thinking of using a heat gun, but on fiberglass I'm a little worried. Maybe it woiuld be better to just grind off the old fitting with a Dremel?

Anyway, here are pictures of the lamp assembly I popped out of the holder, and the holder itself (still attached to the Phaeton). The lamp assembly didn't photograph well, it appears to have some circuitry inside the encapsulation.

I may just fill the assembly with epoxy or marine putty, then just glue a new lamp assembly to that.
