Exactly Robert and all - why not just change the bulbs. There are wide dispersal LEDs. Red LED or Amber LED work well. The previous owner of my unit ordered an antenna and a marker light just before trading it in. I have them from Airstream in the package from his Jan 2012 order. The red teardrop has a white foam pad on the bottom and a black pad inside. They must have just changed the component. I plan on getting just the bulbs.

Rod,

POI.. it's not apparent in the picture of the 1156 above but for better brightness you should match the color of the bulb too lens color.

Still... @ $17.95 ea. X 9 $161.55, it's hard to rationalize the change, after all, all your getting is a little brightness and longer life, thats a lot of 1156 incan's.

Haven't burned one out yet.

Bob

Brain fart...thanks Rod.
even the 15 LED bulb is a lot less at $4.95.

Think I may just try a couple, just might be worth the 50 bucks.
