Scare light replacement

Has anyone replaced the round scare light (mines in the middle of AS) with a porch light or something not so outward projecting? I'd like to find a replacement that wouldn't require shell modification.

Strobe light. Definitely go with the strobe light.

Mine was in very bad shape. I replaced mine with a Signal-Stat 3600. which is basically a tail light with a clear lens. It uses an 1157 dual element tail light bulb, I wired it with two switches. I have low, high and both witch is very bright.
However my trailer was gutted at the time and was easy for me to run wire and switches.
Signal-Stat makes many lights that will work for you. Look for them on line or at a truck parts store near you.

I was able to buck rivet it in place. This is not a very good photo of just the light, but you get the idea.
However it is still an outward projecting light.
You can always do what I did as well and run water proof LED strip lights under the step and belly pan. Ground effect lighting. Get creative, run some wire, add some switches and have fun. I love the strobe idea, lol.

It is a 6" stainless dog food bowl available at petco or petsmart. Modified with a dremmel and uses the same screws which hold the scare ring on. Measure before you go. There are several bowls.

It's all RLS's, I just copied his great idea. It actually makes the scare light a useful light for under-awning activities.
