Default RoadTrek Porch Light

Has anyone that has an RT with the useless porch light, removed it or opened it up?
Mine is riveted in place. I want to temporarily move it to see if I can access the wiring for a useful LED light that would be mounted just to the rear of the OE light.
Before doing so, I wanted to see if I could get information that may be helpful.

I plugged in a LED replacement lamp and it has been fine.

I too replaced the bulb with an LED one but I would rather have replaced the whole thing with something better. But I was stymied by the way it was installed - didn't look too easy to remove. Bulb replacement was way easy.

BTW - I was able to replace the lens with an exact replacement I found on Amazon. The great thing about it was that unlike the aged yellowed one I lost the new one was crystal clear,

Any insight into the manufacturer of the patio light on a 2014 Roadtrek 190 Popular? Looking for possible yellow lense plug and play type replacement. Please, I have all ready called the Mothership and all I got was they are made in China... Thanks

Found this on eBay, looks like the correct lamp. If so, change lens with yours.

Looks like the identical item! Just hit enter on my terminal. I'M DOING THE HAPPY DANCE NOW!! Thank you Deano. With a 30 day return policy all I can loose is the return shipping and perhaps the bugs if it fits. Thanks again.

I satisfied my desire to change out the white bug and insect attracting light cover that came on my Roadtrek 190! I have never liked those white covers given their propensity for attracting annoying flying critters. No need to cut and splice as the replacement cover was the exact form, fit and function, so it was pretty much a plug and play swap. Thanks to Deano who found the cover part on e-bay, I was able to replace in less than 15 minutes. I am now considerably bug free at night and still enjoy an adequate amount of amber lighting thanks to the original LED light array. Without a doubt the white cover provided much more light, but it came with too many unwanted “visitors.”

As a side note, Cindy the proprietor at cmlsurpluscindy (e-bay user ID), is an AWESOME vendor! The original replacement cover arrived with a cracked bottom mounting notch thanks to the USPS and after one email Cindy had a replacement enroute at NO cost to me. That’s service. I think they primarily focus on surplus RV parts, but it certainly is a good asset to check before spending exorbitant costs at brick and mortar RV parts stores. My ultimate goal is to permanently add some amber rope lighting to the under carriage of BIG EDNA II to create that desired outdoor lighting effect. This is a work in progress.

Enjoy the ride! Best. Shorty sends...
