Hi all

I have a Jayco Westport pop-top (around 2000 from memory) and am trying to find replacement lens cover(s) - specifically for the front marker light which is a "clear" lens cover marked LE PEREI manufacture (the bloody thing dropped off somewhere).

I have searched around various sites (including manufacturer) and not come up with much at all.

Is this an OEM product or would you expect one of the caravan / trailer parts stores to have replacements??

Ken,
although I have a coromal and not a jayco. I broke the lens on a annexe light. All I did was ring coromal and asked for spare parts. They posted me new light as you couldn't by the lens by itself, $25 delivered. The fella knew exactly which light it was when I gave him the model.

I would think jayco will do the same or tell you where you can get one through a dealer.

Hi Ken,

I have just replaced my marker lights on my van. It is not a dificult job so if you can't find a replacement cover you could replace both front lights with new LED ones.

Here is a link to the forum that I posted a pictorial on how it was done.

A great forum for caravanners in general.

Regards from Col.

Thanks Col

I was starting to think I might head down that path rather than keep the old light assemblies.

Good post on the other forum.

I chucked my lights and replaced them with LED's, I havent replaced the large rear light just yet, they are the great big rectangular ones that a are bit $$$ for the same size in LED.
The I found some forward facing white clearance lights the same size as the original manufacture item at a supa che... , cost about $20 each and will last the life of the van, 2 wires and 2 screws and won't ever need maintenance.
Only problem is that they are very bright and Made reversing in the dark a little difficult to see down the side of the van due to glare, I put the hazards on and turn the lights off so I can see, My mate puts a bit of tape over the light, not enough to block it completely just enough to turn it down a bit

As a last note on this

1. my particular van has very little slack or movement in the wire such that is it difficult to join and push the excess back inside the cavity of the van so that makes it a little difficult to replace with flush mounting LED lamps.

2. I have opted to replace the lens assembly (which is common and available locally it turns out from Martin's Trailer parts and a few other stores) and go with an LED replacement globe. Not sure why I could not find them at the start of my searching.

3. There are plenty of options for LED replacements now on line which also reduces the "dimming" options due to the lower current draw

As a side note I have purchased LED globes at a premium price from Australian suppliers and had them fail, and I have purchased much cheaper ones from China without any failures. Go figure.
