I'm replacing all of my clearance ligths because they used the kind mounted in a rubber grommet and it turns out those leak water into the walls. I'm putting in l.e.d. lights with a plastic flange so I can seal them in with silicone.


Got the new flagpole:



I'm also changing my headlights out but I'll have to post some pics of that later since we ran out of time:


How about my work platform? Love the Little Giant:




That flag pole is 22' long, and the base of it is mounted about 7' above ground. Got it here: www.rvflagpoleguys.com

That last picture kind of shows the new headlight. I found these cool lights with amber l.e.d.'s around the circumference of the housing. I wired those up to the parking lights. They look pretty good. I'm also replacing those 4" round turn/marker lights next to the headlights with l.e.d. ones. And those oblong turn/marker lights on the sides next to the headlights I'm replacing with the l.e.d. ones.

I'm guessing they are d.o.t. approved. But I'll look closer at the box when I go back to my shop. Don't know why they wouldn't be. They use a standard 9003 H4 bulb I'm pretty sure. http://4statetrucks.com/detail...=Y&iABSP=M_1&iPICN=1

Thanks Rad. I wasn't too worried. I'm a St. Paul cop, have been or 25 years, got 2 to go before going full time rv'ing. No copper worth his salt is going to pull me over for that.

Just posting to add the close up pictures of the clearance lights in case somebody missed it in an earlier thread.

The original leakers:



And the sealed up l.e.d. ones:

Wow, it really looks great, I like those LED lights. Where did you get them from? Do they come in oval?

I got the lights at my local Kenworth dealer, Rihm Motors. But he ordered them. They're made by www.trucklite.com I think. Most truck dealers sell their lights. Not cheap tho. I have 24 lights so I cried on their counter and he sold them to me for $10.00/each. Plus I'm kind of a regular customer there so that helped. I don't know list price for them. Don't know about the oval either.
