In my case, the electrics and fuse panel are at the rear of the trailer, inside the large closet that's in the bathroom.
It just took a trip down to the local Pep Boys/Napa/O'Reilly etc and I found similar-looking and cheap one-wire 2 bulb incandescent marker-light fixtures.
Less than $25 for 6 replacements, plus the some time in installing them.
I'm doing my "upgrades" on the cheap ... and so didn't want to spend money for LED marker lights that are only on when the towing vehicle is generating the power (i.e. no drain on the "house" battery").
This week I finally replaced the old 1141 incandescent bulbs in the interior fixtures with LED replacements (that do drain the "house" battery when dry-camping).
The price on those has plummeted in the last 3 years, especially if you buy them from eBay or Amazon, rather than going to the specialist RV stores.
I found some bright ones with a warm-white color that nicely match the original bulbs (I can't stand the "cool white" of most LEDs and fluorescent bulbs).
