Docking Light covers

Under the moho today, looking around, checking things out before my Christmas weekend camping trip. Noticed that the Docking Light covers are almost burnt through. Looks as if someone left the lights on so long, that the covers are opaque, instead of clear. Like they melted from the heat.
Any ideas where to find these covers? I've looked at the outside light setup, they are not the same.
Any thought's or ideas?
Thanks, Derek

I have the same issue Derek.
Be aware, that the "Scare" or Porch lamp is not the same.

I kept looking at my 'scare' lamp lens, and finally got out a tape measure. They 'look' the same, but once you get up close, you realize NO!
Checked with Inland, they don't have anything listed. Maybe Andy will take a look at this and give us suggestions.
Thanks, Derek

A new(ok, RELATIVELY new) process for headlight lens restoration might be a solution...many body shops and erstwhile mechanical-type establishments advertise this on a counter display...

Good idea, and one I used on my tail light lenses, but its not gonna work on Dereks if its anything like mine...
It has a melted bulge that look like a burnt orange rasberry!

I have to admit... and I dont think anyone is going to be surprised by this... that I have been looking at alternatives...

The stock lamps, even being generous are weak...
Putting a LED in improved them slightly, but not much.

I have my eye on some LED spotlamps... but its not high on my priority list for now...

Steve,
LED Spotlamps??? Tell us where? eBay? Yes, my lense covers are melted, doubt that any headlight lens restoration will even begin to take care of the problem. I'm going to keep looking, will contact Andy when I've finished this post.
Thanks, Derek

Ok,
Sent Andy, from Inland RV, a message concerning the docking light covers. This is the response.

Hi Derek.

According to Airstream, the last time they had that lens was 2008.

If we had one, perhaps we could come up with another source, or even make them ourselves.

Regards.

Andy

Responded back to Andy that I'd gladly send him one of the covers if he thought he could get a replacement manufactured. Anyone else interested?

Thanks, Derek
