Rewiring Running Lights

I have read many threads on running lights... However, what I am looking for is the work involved in rewiring an Airstream's running lights? Specifically, I need to rewire the two clearance lights in the front of my camper. I attempted fishing from the lights' location downward... it seems that I make it about half way down before I hit a block.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Do you just have the two clearance lights, one on each side of the trailer? Or do you have them, plus three across the top? It does make a difference as to how we can suggest you proceed.

There are horizontal frame member that will almost make it imposible to fish a wire through. Why are you needing to fish a new wire? What happened to the old wire?

Two Lights

My camper has only two lights.

As for the wire, or lack there of. No wire is visible for these lights. Maybe it was cut off, I don't know exactly.

I think you are going to have to remove some interior skins to get the new wire where it needs to go. Before you do that, you may be able to bend a coat hanger straight, and put a hook in the end, fish around inside the hole where the light was. You may luck out and snag it.
