Jesse,

I have the same problem and was looking into replacing them. When I called and got a quote they were very very expensive.

Where do you purchase your from? Do you have a procedure for installation?


Thanks.

I purchased them from David at Lichtsinn 1 (800) 343-6255.
(He is very helpful)

I cut the wire connectors off first,

Attachment 274682

then I pulled the old strips off and cleaned the glue off with goof off.

I ran a small drill through where the wires go to make it easy to thread the new wires.

I used clear silicone to coat the back of the new lighting strips.

After dry time I added a dab of silicone
where the wires go through for protection.

Some of my front LEDS went out on my 2012 Tour. Seems strange as I thought LED bulbs were supposed to last a lifetime.

I replaced mine with an aftermarket kit that allows me to change the colors, etc. if I want to.

Boogie Lights also has pre-made strips that will work at a good price. You'll have to cut them down a couple of inches. I also drilled a new wire access hole at the top of one side (the OEM hole was at the bottom of the light strip). Sealed everything up - working great for over 3 years.

Jesse, couldn't help notice your yellowing turn signals. I just replaced mine with TYC 12-5219-01
Exact fit and less than $20 each on eBay or Amazon. Quality is good, hopefully better anti yellowing than the OEM. The Tour turn signal lights are a Pontiac Firebird part.Attachment 274714

Great idea Nova.

Very helpful, thank you. Yes, I have used David before. The company is quite customer service oriented.

If I remember correctly those strips are expensive. I may go with aftermarket and color changing.

So I'm finally taking the time to check the connections in the surge guard, and I realize I have no idea how to remove the cover. These old eyes can't tell if perhaps they're mini torx or hex. Maybe a special tool is needed? Any guidance on what is needed to remove the cover is appreciated.
Thanks

Mine on the PT-50C were just a Phillips head screw.
BTW that is the portable one.

Thanks Wayne, I should have mentioned this is the surge guard 41260. These aren't typical Phillips head. Can't figure out what they are.Attachment 275279

Only 2 Philip head screws hold the cover on. The top left and the lower right corners.
Please remember to disconnect all power sources before removing the cover.

Turn the coach and chassis battery switches off. Unplug from shore power and turn off the generator breaker on the generator.

I have the 2 Phillips off, but the other 4 fasteners are holding the cover tight. Are the other fasteners snaps, a firm tug to open it? It felt like the cover was going to break when I tested them as snap on.
