2014 36LA Clearance Lights

Anyone know how to service the, up top, front clearance lights on this unit? No external screws to be seen. Maybe access from inside from behind and above the front TV?
Guess I could call Tiffin support. Why do they not have an online support page for questions?

I would assume the lens can be pried/ popped off, which would give access to the light base which would be screwed on.

The plastic chrome piece pops off. The 2 screws that hold the light fixture to the MH are on the base piece.

You may have to clean off some caulk first. I use a plastic putty knife & a utility knife. There is a 1/4" or so slot in the chrome piece (on top or bottom, depending on how light is installed) where you can use a straight slotted screwdriver to help pop the piece off the base.

You should have enough wire to just pull the wires outside enough to install the new one.

Great conversation in this thread, and what I believe is correct advise.

When I replaced a few of the clearance lights in my previous MH ('04 Fleetwood DP), I disconnected the wires. To make sure that the wires wouldn't fall down into the slot, I used a clothes pin attached the wires. I've used long twist-ties on wires before, on other projects. Fishing wires out of panels, or walls, can be a bit frustrating in tight spaces. On this '16 Tiffin, I have not had to fool with the clearance lights....yet, so I haven't looked to see if the wires have had a dab of silicone or some sealing, to keep moisture from flowing down the wire?

I've recently replaced 2 rear ones on our 2014 Allegro Bus 37AP, and just finished insulating the front area. (It had 3 layers of the foil radiant barrier. Put a good R-40 rock wool, and one layer of radiant barrier where the cabinets start. HUGE impact. )

They just use crimp connections. I used heat shrink crimp connections on the rear lights, since they are exposed. Front light connections are inside, but the heat shrink connections do provide a more secure connection.

On our coach, replacing the clearance lights was not an easy task. I used a small portable scaffold to have stable footing while working on these lights. the dome pops off and there were 2 screws holding them down, some of those screws were rusted. The connecting wires were imbedded in caulk and difficult to get enough wiggle room to cut the old ones out and replace with new ones. After replacing each burned out lamp, I put a bead of clear silicon caulk around each lamp. the hardest part of the task was getting enough wire available to make the cut and then connection.

Good luck.
