I am not positive, but IIRC if you remove the aluminum housing you will find that is a standard truck light fixture behind the housing and can be easily replaced, BTW I see the sillycone in the picture, you will need to remove ALLLLLL of it before any thing else will stick.

Awning Bracket Mounts

More places for leaks.... These brackets are also loose. Should I remove and remount? or wait for them to fall off while under sail? I still can't figure out how to setup the awning!

A couple of questions (maybe I missed it, above). Are you planning to remove your interior skins? If you do, you will probably find (as I have) lots of things to worry about. I have all of mine out now, and I'm finding small leaks in lots of places. The only major leak I have found is around one of the running lights on the front. A few pics..... My awning mounts are rough looking, like yours, but unbelievably, they don't leak. They will have to be addressed as part of the rebuild. Good Luck.
