I just changed out some of those same lights in my 99 Excella. The vinyl beneath the light was scorched brown just like yours. All of them had the correct bulbs, 1141. I installed LED's in the new fixtures and the old ones.
Also, the plastic discs that holds the hot wire inside the bulb holders were melted, to the point that the spring pushed the contact out when the bulb was removed. The vinyl surface and the melted disc are both a fire hazard that should be addressed in any trailer using the 1141 incandescent bulbs in those cheap plastic fixtures.
