They’re currently $40 each (not sure why the 2-pack is $98)
I installed them last year after having the same issues as you.
I filled the stripped holes with Plastic chop sticks & gorilla glue.
Several months later I took your advice and have installed these. It took a bit of logic and testing to figure out the wiring but that's all good. For anyone else doing this, my originals had eight wires where these only have six. That's because the old ones had separate ground wires for each bulb but the new ones only have a single ground. I just joined the grounds together.
These connectors are useful. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Q7WM3SK
I haven't screwed mine up tight and sealed yet. I still need to fix the holes. I got some wood filler which didn't really work. I'm hoping this stuff will be better https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005493KM2
. I think it will be similar to sawdust and epoxy used in the video below. Chopsticks or toothpicks might help too.
Anyway ... I'm a little confused by the gasket that came with them. I just left them how they were placed on the back of the light and wired it up but now I notice that one side is sticky with paper to peel off. Which side should that go on? I'm guessing that it should go on the RV wall side to basically seal up the big rectangle. In that case I have it the wrong way and will need to disconnect all the wires to turn them around.
I basically followed this.
Fortunately I don't seem to have the quick flashing problem that he had.
