Replacing burned out patio light 2007 Safari

Hi,
Is there some trick to getting the cover off to replace the bulb on the outside patio light? DH and I can't seem to figure it out.

Thanks,
T

Should be just three screws that hold it in. It has a gasket that may be holding it on still, but it comes right out. I just replaced mine with an LED a few weeks ago, was not a problem.

I bought the assembly from Dan at LED4RV.com. It's a replacement of the lens too (mine was a bit melted). I think it was around $25. Give him a call and he'll know which one works for you.

By the way, it's really bright.

Thanks! Our cover is a little melty too and the gasket looks like it melted a bit too. Was the LED hard to install?

Insanely easy. Took all of 5 minutes. To install the gasket, it helped that my son was walking by - helped to have an extra set of hands to hold it all together when installing the screws, but I probably could have done it too.

Super news! I emailed Dan from his web site last night and he wrote me right back with the link to the assembly I needed. It's on the way. I've told my DH that you said it's easy to install. I'll let you know.

Thanks so much for the tip!

My hubby got the new light in and it was slick! He agreed that the toughest part was getting the screws in. We are very happy that to have the light changed over. It was burning really hot before.

Thank you for all your help!

The screws may be tight and hard to get to move. You may try some penetrating oil. I would not put so much it runs onto the side of the unit.

To put the lens back on, I put the lens in place and eye ball the holes to see if they line up, and apply pressure in the center of the lens. Start the first screw (don't tighten) then start the next one. If the 3rd screw proves to problematic take the pressure off of the lens and see if the if you can get it to line up then.

Hi Dan,
My original post was before btowntincan turned me on to your company. DH did just what you described below and our new fixture went in without any issues. It is a nice bright light and we are not worried about it melting

Thanks everyone!

Dan, are we talking about the "scare light" or the light above the door (like our '08 Intl)?
