Hi again, Just passed this info on they tried an 1157 bulb last night and it would not lock in. The light has the following info on the lights on the camper, is this is any help in determining the current bulb type, thanks very much for all of you quick and helpful support.
Auto Lamp 576
SAE -S-1a-l-t-63

Another option.

Does the socket have one or two buttons at the bottom? If it has one; an 1156 should work. If it has two an 1157 should work, but the pins are offset on the 1157 and you need to orient the bulb accordingly. Both should be available at any auto parts or even Wal Mart.

The single filament version of that size is an 1156 & the double is 1157 however there are different wattages out there with different numbers. Take to old bulb to the Auto Parts store & they should be able to match it up.

1156 is a good option. Does this light have two sockets in the assembly?

Ok, daylight and rested up, they took a fresh day to start over on the wiring issue and found bulbs, all is well, we have lights and brakes, they are south bound and down with the Magic Carpet Ride. About 3 hours she will be home.

Again I want to thank each and every one for comments, help, ideals, and support. We are new to the AS world, but we are hooked and she isn't home yet.
