Dynasty Docking Lights


TX Bella

Recommended Posts

Looking to replace the Docking lights (side lights) on my 2008 Monaco Dynasty. Couple of them are not working, would like to replace with LED hopefully brighter then the original install.

I have searched and not found the same oval shape. The distance between the screws is 5.25 inches.

Thanks for any help.

John,

Your chances are slim to none in finding a LED light fixture to replace what you have. You will have better luck in searching for a LED bulb that fits into the socket of the existing fixture.

Two of the light fixtures are water damaged.

I have not been able to find anything(non-LED) that look similar that were not amber or red.

I thought like you said about replacing the bulbs , but need a couple new fixtures.

Thanks

There's a procedure for converting standard headlights to projection HID by heating and prying apart the lens from the housing.  I'm wondering if that will work to pry apart the docking lights, clean them up and re-seal . . . . You'll need to do a search for DIY videos and decide if you're handy enough to try it.

Last year I found a led replacement for my 07 they fit perfectly and couldn't tell them from original,  I will see if i can find the info, i know i have the boxes they came in at home because I put the old ones in them so it might be this evening before I can get back to you.

1. I contacted the listed  salvage yard no luck, will continue others I find.

2. The 2 needing replacement might need to make a project and cleanup and reuse.

3. If you can find the info on the replacements you found that fit, that would be get.

Thanks for the response

I replaced mine about 5 years ago, so I had a hard time remembering where I found them. They are made be ITC the are called FLASH MOUNT BOAT DOCKING lights.

Here are it is:  https://www.itc-marine.com/product/flush-mount-led-docking-light/ . Use these numbers to shop around for the best price. I paid $45 EACH, but I see they are much cheaper now a days. Just a heads up: after you replace them they will always stay slightly lighted because of the multiplex switch. Don't worry about it.  Good luck! Don

I retract my statement about not having a chance in hell of finding a LED Oval light to fit exactly what you have.

It appears that there are multiple places where these are available.

Thanks guys for the resources. I've logged that into my resource file.

Found angled ones on EBay but holes are 5.5” on center…same price as ones out of stock on Amazon. For as little as they got used I would not worry if they were not LED.

Seems like the correct dimensions will order a pair and let you know.

Amazon showed out of stock but can order from other sites

Thanks, I’ve been looking to replace two of mine as well and had not found a source. Now, I have two sources to call.

I search a long time and couldn't find them.  IF you can't find them we got ours from RNR RV in Spokane that found them and ordered them for me.  Expensive, way too much.  They are out there, and cheaper.  Let me know if you can't find some and I'll find out where they got them, but like I said, way overpriced with their mark up.  I might add, they are not as bright as I would have liked considering the price.  The old ones were rusted and not able to get them out and apart without destroying them.

Just saw this post and wanted to offer my experience.  I have the same lights on a 2006 Dynasty and I was able to replace the halogens with LED's quite easily.  A couple tricks... Once you unscrew the fixture from the coach, you need to remove the silicon sealant used to cover the screws that hold the fixture together.  You can just dig it out with a knife tip or something similar.  You can then get to the bulb.  I  installed H3 30-SMD 4014 LED bulbs purchased on Amazon. $12.11 for two. I had to slightly enlarge the bulb opening to accommodate the LED.  Rotary file on a drill did the trick.  Didn't take much.  The bulb is held in by two screws and is prewired with connectors.  No splicing, etc. required. Be sure to re-silicone the case screw heads  before reinstalling the fixture on the coach.   I was also able to clean the lenses.  The total cost of the project was the price of the bulbs and some sealant.  Result was better than new and twice as bright. Good luck.
