    replace tail light

    Any idea on how to access a rear tail light? Right side bulb doesn't come on as blinker or brakes. It looks like the lens should pop off with a screwdriver, I tried it without much force because I don't want to crack it. What's the right way? Thanks.

    I'm not sure all of them have the same lights. Is it a Solitude, Momentum, or Reflection?

    Hi @TNFSolitude,

    To remove the tail light:
    1) Carefully cut the silicone seal around the perimeter
    2) Remove the red trim ring (it should pop off with the seal cut)
    3) Remove the four (4) screws behind the trim ring

    Note: You may not be able to access the bulb if it is a sealed unit. If it is a sealed unit, the complete light assembly would have to be replaced (please contact your dealer for parts ordering assistance).

    Best regards,
    ~ Janice

    I think the tail lights on the Solitudes are sealed LED lights, aren't they??

    Never mind, there is no tail light. It's a diode circuit board configuration. It is blowing fuses in my tow vehicle. It's at the dealership.

    To end this thread, the dealer found the wire to the right taillight had a pinch point that finally burned through. Shorted out and popped fuses. My Solitude is #302, could this be an issue in other campers built at the same time? Hopefully just an isolated issue.
