I have a 1995 Chinook Concourse.

I'm looking for the rear entry porch light lens, but I would buy the whole fixture if you have it.

I'm also looking for the rubber gasket that goes under the upper mounting bracket of the illuminated handrail.

Thanks-

You can still order (new) either the entire porch light fixture or just the lens (but just the lens is kind of expensive as compared to the whole thing). Here is information/links:

1) Just the lens, Fasteners Unlimited part # P-1328

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004R ... ge_o08_s02

2) The whole fixture, Fasteners Unlimited part #P-1327

This exists on Amazon but is out of stock. However with the part number I'd think you can find it somewhere else.

There was a phone number on the back of the fixture, called and they said no longer available and suggested a large led fixture.
Your link is exactly what I'm looking for. Heavy duty fixture, not plastic. I'll track one down and thanks again

The new clear lens and this LED bulb make for a clear bright light, big change from old dim yellow.

They also still have the lighted handle new on ebay for $45. I searched "chinook handle"

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LIGHTED-RV-GRAB-HANDLE-20-LONG-SILVER-ENDS-SAYS-CHINOOK-/253043592591?hash=item3aea92cd8f:g:qEgAAOSw-YVXm2Et&vxp=mtr

You might buy the whole thing and just use the rubber gasket.

If it were me, I'd probably just get a bicycle tube that I had previously punctured, cut a piece of it and create a new one with a pair of scissors.

At the time I was looking there wasn't the Ebay listing so I got my handle here: http://www.rvandvansurplus.com/assistha ... letype=RV#

Thanks for all the information and suggestions, I'm moving in the right direction now. On another note, has anyone replaced their light fixture above the dark water valve with a sealed LED fixture? Looking for ideas. This is on a 1995 Chinook Concourse.

Blue - can't believe Amazon actually sells these lenses. I needed to replace one of the LED bulbs I put into these lights when I bought the rig but with the old lenses there was very little light. Looking forward to a clear lens, especially for the porch light!

The lighted handle on eBay seems to be different style. Interesting.

I replaced the porch light with LED bulb from AutoZone. It is made by Sylvania, and I also used the same brand for the refer door light. Do not have to use the LAT (low ambient temperature), so the lack of heat is not an issue.

My dump bulb recently burned out.

I plan to take off the lens, clean it up, and simply put an LED bulb in.

Thanks for the reminder!
