HELP!!! Bathroom Light Cover Broke!

I came home from San Antonio today and found the bathroom light cover sitting in the bathtub in two pieces.....no clue how it happened. Does anyone still carry this? I've included some pics. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have exactly the same problem, so I'll be curious to see if there is a solution.

Two places that might carry that lens are
Inland RV (Andy)
Oasis RV in Tucson.

I'll try Oasis. Thanks Richard. If all else fails, I'm getting some clear 2500psi epoxy from Home Depot and repairing it that way.

I don't know if you ever stopped by Oasis when you were TDY in Southern Arizona. The place is not much to look at, but they have alot of vintage parts. I have been surprised by the things they have had when I stopped by.

Sorry about the Andy thing, I forgot.

I'm actually heading back out to Huachuca in October, so I might stop in to see them, if I haven't found what I need by then. I just filled out their online parts request. I wonder if there isn't anyone around who can reproduce the part, based on an original part.

You might want to check with Roger (Zeppelinium). He has been scrapping out a mid 70's Sovereign. He might have what you need.

I had the same problem and gave up looking...I made one out of a sheet of frosted acetate...Like a heavy copier transparency...Not as easy to get on and off though. I got it at an art supply store.

Well here's my first attempt at attachments within a thread...If this works you"ll see some shims at the top of the lamp. I pulled them out a bit so you could see what I did. The bottom of the acetate is secured under the base of the lamp and the top is held in place by the shims. Not a terribly elegant solution, but I wanted to keep the original lamp. Evenly sanding a piece of clear acetate with 250 grit sandpaper would look about the same. The original shade made it much easier to change the bulbs...and so you see I have yet to replace the burned out center bulb.

Kevin,

Is the acetate formed or flexible? If it's flexible, does it keep its shape under lamp heat?

The acetate is very flexable...and acetate may be a generic term...Its what cartoon cells are drawn on...celluoid may be another word for it? I'd had the stuff laying around for years. It holds a little shape after a time, but still wants to lay mostly flat when the upper shims are removed to change a bulb...I hope that helps.

Kevin
