I needed to change out the factory side marker lights
and bought LEDs for the job. Discovered the wiring connection is a lot different from the Casita
factory installed lights
. Because of the wire leads on the LEDs, I decided to bring the factory wires through the light
base to make the connection on the inside. In Casita's they install the maker lights
before gluing on the carpet. You can NOT pull the wires to get any slack if they're short. I added a short extension and pushed the extra inside. Anyway, I cut two holes in the bases to allow me to bring the wires into the light
base. I soldered ring connectors to all the leads so I could use the rivets to complete the circuit. Hopefully if I ever have to replace these again I can drill off the rivet head without ruining the ring connector. I may add a small sacrificial washer as there is plenty of room.
