I was lucky enough to find a alum cover on a wrecked AS but the plastic and the bulb assembly were toast. I'll make another socket and put her back on. Maybe some of the dealers will be able to help.

wear it out, don't rust it out

These are the parts for the entrance door light, the cover, lens, socket and bulb.

A new style socket and bulb are now used.

The roller is to keep the door from dragging on the awning.

Aaron parts department must not have had the current information the last time I asked for one

Hey Vern, you can see what I did here: beginning at post number 366. I already had the cover, so I took one of the LED's and attached it to the cover and wired it into the existing wiring from inside the camper. Then made a Plexiglas (or was it Lexan?) lens. Looks cool at night. Just another idea.

A roller thing came with my awning, but I never installed it. I don't like the look of it, so we are careful when we open the door. If the awning is up all the way, no problem. I would toss the roller and put a couple of Olympic rivets in the holes.
