Check with Inland RV. They have L.E.D. replacement lights for most AS models.

There is an easier way.. Several places sell cylindrical red LED bulbs equivalent to 1157's, which fit in tail light receptacles, and have two contacts and two levels of brightness.. Polishing the reflector or lining with foil makes them even brighter... Only red LED bulbs will be cvisible throgh taillight lenses, and only amber will light up through side marker light lenses, according to other experts here... Superbirght LED's has a large selection of 12V vehicle bulbs for exterior lighting. Not so sure about interior lighting..

nice

Check this thread I started a while back. We have a 1984 Sovereign. Got mine from S&S LED's. Pic on the last post. And here is another pic. They work really well, and I am ok without the red border around the backup lights.

Pics! We "require" pics when you are done. You will hate yourself if you do not do before, during, and after shots. I always have good intentions, but then get busy with the job and forget that the "during" pics are worth bunches to people down the line!
Enjoy the fun.

Joshua,
I went to the site you pm'd me and then checked measurements against the old ones that came out. I think those will be too big for you. But the ones posted right above this look good. Especially if they are now a sealed kit. Not sure about the plug on the end of the wires, I had nothing like that behind mine, it was wire to wire splice.
Here are the pics with my old ones so you can check measurements. Depth was fine, but I think the lights were simply bigger.

Thanks Casa for your help, you are correct the lights I was looking at are to big.
But I ordered the above mentioned sealed kit from Dan's LED4RV.
So Im good to go! Ill report back around Xmas when I get home and there installed. Looking forward to seeing the difference.

Got the kit from LED4RV Dan his site has pick's tht leave nothing to be desired. Only thing I did was goop the spacer to the lens before I installed it to make a gasket otherwise they take about 10 minutes to install & they are super!

The LED-kit1 has been replace by the LED-kit5

The LED-kit5 is a much better light kit. It is water tight, brighter and much easier to install.
