The "C" Lights

Seeing the other thread on cleaning the dirt, dead bugs and whatever out of the "C" lights got me to thinking about mine.

One entire front light is not working and half of one of the rear lights is out.

Having read here and elsewhere that the lenses are easy to break has kept me from taking them apart to troubleshoot them.

I'd like to be able to remove the lens (hopefully without too much damage), replace the dead lights and reassemble in one shot but I have no clue what kind of lights are in there. Obviously, it's going to be some sort of LED but are they individual lights or a "rope" or strip light that I can order from Amazon? Am I going to need to order it from Entegra?

Have you replaced any of your lights?
Do you have any model numbers?
Do you have any pictures of the lights with the lenses removed?

Thanks!

Mike,
I've posted a recent link describing a similar issue that others have experienced while dealing with their "C" lights, in addition to a picture that, I think, Larry (LWBAZ) had posted on an earlier post identifying the location of the tabs to remove the lens.

Hi everyone,

So we just had our demo day and will be taking the coach Monday from the dealership. When walking around I noticed the front C lights were not looking fabulous and was interested in replacing them with the clearer cover color (ours look slightly yellow - almost sun faded).

So my question is, does anyone have a part number for these? Do we have to order direct through Entegra.

Also, does anyone have a part number for the docking lights. The two on the passenger side are clouded -- I might try cleaning the lens but thought I'd check with the wealth of knowledge in this forum.

Andy the C lights can be replaced as I asked my advisor at NIRVC but do not have the part number sorry.

I replaced one of my docking lights recently as water got in it. The company is ITC that makes them out of China. Theyíre basically a marine docking light and usually sold in pairs for right side and left side. Parts numbers 69389-L or 69389-R, the last letter corresponds to which side you need. You can get them on eBay and way cheaper then the dealer or Entegra direct. Hope this helps.

Hey Joe,

Thanks for the info on the docking lights -- I'd actually found those as you said on eBay.

Regarding the C lights, the part # for those from Entegra is: 0306224.

They are sold as a pair and are $418.14.

I was able to do a successful replacement of the front C lights and will share pictures and information on doing so shortly. There are a few extra tab locations than shown in the image above and if you are careful you can remove the C lights without breaking a clip pretty easily. One thing I did note on the new C lights is that they have a gasket seal on them now vs the originals on my 2016 coach. I think this will help prevent the dirt buildup inside. I also took the time to ensure the LED's were all facing outwards for best effect.

I'll be tackling the rear C lights shortly (these are not sun yellowed so will not have to buy new) and then will post pictures and details for the removal and reinstall.

Cheers for now.

Andy

Appreciate your information and post on this issue and look forward to the material and pictures that you are going to add. That will be great information to have stored in my personal archives on Entegra problems..... I would guess that it is just a matter of time to have to confront replacing those light covers.

Gary

Andy, do your rear C lights have different intensity? Our 2020 Anthem right rear C light is probably 30-40% brighter than the left one (or maybe itís the other way around). And an Anthem a few sites away earlier this year was the opposite. Obviously itís only apparent at night. But if yours are different intensities can you look for any physical differences in the LEDs while you are working the lenses? Thx

If youíre adding gasket material around the C lights to keep them clean it wonít do you any good. The whole back of the light is open to atmosphere so anything can get into the lights. They can be sealed with a plate over the opening with just a hole for the wiring. The caps come with that area covered, but for whatever reason Entegra cuts it out and leaves the back open.
Mine are sealed and they donít get dirty from the inside.

I did not see different intensities, but I can confirm that part of the LEDstrips were twisted on both front and back that could be a reason you are seeing that.

I just wrapped up the removal,cleaning and reinstall for the rear Cís and Iíll be posting a full write up shortly. Have to wait till it gets dark here in Apopka for a final night shot of the finished product!!!

Cheers
