We purchased this Porch Light to replace a broken one on our Fifth Wheel trailer. It is an exact match and looks wonderful. The hardest part is getting the old one off and cleaning up all the residue. I love the etrailer web site, every item has the dimensions listed and a nice video to show you the product. I will definitely use etrailer again for any trailer parts/material that we might need.


Perfect fit. Just finished installing it. Looks great. Thanks for the quick order to delivery time.


Perfect retrofit for our porch light on our heartland bighorn 5th wheel!


The part arrived in a few days, and I installed it that evening. It fit and worked perfectly. I've already recommended etrailer to a camping friend.


This item was purchased to replace the porch light on my camper which was damaged. The item is an exact replacement , good quality and easy to install. Delivery time was super and the price VERY reasonable. Shipping cost also was reasonable. So many other stores charge such high shipping it makes the purchase of the item unreasonable.......not so with etrailer. I have used etrailer before and would not hesitate to use them again and again. Thank you for a great shopping experience!

Light still works as it should although we dont use the camper as much as wed like to. Once again, thanks for a fantastic shopping experience and great products at fair prices. Its a pleasure doing business with your friendly and informative staff.

Your parts for this trailer is performing like they should,very satisfied with your
products .


Great product. I am annoyed tho that these are not the same size (slightly smaller) as the originals in my 2013 Keystone. Also, since I ordered the wrong lens (amber), I still had my old clear lens so no fret, right?? Well, wrong. The old clear lens tabs were larger and thicker than the new porch light amber tabs and will not work, so I have an amber lens. Still no biggy… I'm a big boy and can handle the disappointment!! ; )


I was thrilled to find a replacement porch light for my 2007 Fun Finder X189FBS travel trailer at
The ordering process was simple thanks to the detailed part description, fast shipping and great pricing!


Easy install, working as advertised. Would like to know if a LED bulb exists that can be used in the socket.


Product is great! For perfect on my trailer! Quick delivery! Thank you


This light was an exact replacement for an existing light that we had on our trailer. The previous light was left on for a few hours and got so hot that it melted the lens. Installed this light and replaced the bulb with an LED that we ordered. Should solve the problem of getting too hot.


I needed a replacement porch light for 5th wheel as the original light lost its lens somewhere during our travels. The replacement light received was just as pictured online and delivery was very fast. Installation was quick and simple. Light works great.


The tail lights, porch light, and water service caps were exact replacements! Very fast delivery. The best and nicest service that I have had from any company in years! If all the people in this town are as nice as the ladies that answered my questions, and took my order, I would consider moving there!


My original lens fell out on the road someplace. I ordered the whole thing incase it was not an exact match. Exact product replacement. Very happy. You have to be careful when removing the lens to replace the bulb or the plastic tabs will break.


This Product was exactly what I ordered and needed to replace a bad light fixture on my RV and it came super fast. The price also was exceptional! I definitely will recommend to my friends. Thanks...Happy Camper~~!~


Easy installation. Fit perfect even the screw holes. Took about 15 mins.

Still working great. No problems and looks like the original. Cant tell any different.
Bill S - 10/19/2018


This turned out to be the exact replacement for our FunFinder. It was easy to replace and gave us our porch light back again. Absolutely recommend this to anyone where it fits the need.


Great product. Inexpensive, better quality light than the one that came with the trailer. Easy to install. E Trailer was only web site that I could find this particular light. I use Amazon ALOT. They didn't have it.


Exactly what my parents needed to replace the outside light on their camper. Perfect fit and great price.


Product shipped promptly and as ordered. The lens was broken and with one call it was prompt replaced. Thank you.


Received item today, just what I ordered


Lights for perfect, easy to install and great price! Ever need any RV parts you're my go to source. Thank you.


The light was an exact replacement for mine that had been hit by a rock while on the road. Worked great and great service.


We sold the trailer shortly afterwards but it worked well until then .
Thank you


Received package quickly but no padding inside the box to keep the two items from bouncing around. Items appear to be undamaged. Have not yet completed installation of the items in my RV.

  • Removing the Lens on Optronics RV Oval Porch and Utility Light - Amber
    The lens on the RV Oval Porch and Utility Light # RVPL5A is held to the housing with some tabs on the lens that fit slots on the housing. To remove the lens you will need something thin and flat like a knife or small screwdriver to gently pry the lens free. The tabs on the lens are located at the top and bottom of the lens so to avoid breaking then start gently prying on the sides of the lens until you can see the tabs well enough to avoid them. The lens can be snapped right back into...

  • Availability of Optronics RV Porch Utility Light with Clear Lens
    Yes, for the same type of light as the Optronics RV Porch Utility Light # RVPL5A you were looking at but with a clear lens you can use the part # RVPL7C. This assembly has the same white base and overall dimensions but with a clear lens and a built-in toggle switch that you can use to turn the light on and off. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can check out as well.

  • Dimensions of the Replacement Lens for RVPL5A and RVPL7A Lights, part # APL5AB
    The Replacement Lens for RVPL5A and RVPL7A Lights # APL5AB is meant to be an exact replacement for the Optronics porch lights # RVPL5A and # RVPL7A as the title suggests. Although I cannot confirm if it would fit on the part number that you referenced, I can give you the dimensions so that you can check it out. The replacement lens is 5-1/2" Wide x 2-3/4" Tall x 3/4" Deep. You can compare these measurements to what you have to see if it is compatible or not.

  • Replacement for Amber RV Porch Light
    The Replacement Lens # APL5AB you referenced is only designed to fit the Optronics RV Porch Utility Light - Incandescent - Oval - White Housing - Amber Lens # RVPL5A and Optronics RV Porch Utility Light w/ Switch # RVPL7A and I would not be able to guarantee a fit in any other light. I was unable to locate a reference to your particular light so the best option we can offer is one of the two aforementioned porch lights.

  • Replacement Lens Recommendation for an RV Patio Light
    This Replacement Lens # APL5AB is designed to be a replacement lens for the RV Oval Porch and Utility Light # RVPL5A. If the # RVPL5A is the light fixture that is on your patio then the # APL5AB would be the correct replacement lens for you.

  • What Does Replacement Optronics Lens # APL5AB Fit
    Since we have no way of looking up the lights used on a specific trailer or motor home, you have to go by the dimensions. Lens # APL5AB fits # RVPL5A. this light measures 6-1/4 inches long by 3-7/16 inches tall and it is 1-7/8 inches deep. If this matches what you have then the lens will likely fit. If not, let me know the dimensions and I can see if we have a fit. Also, there may be a part number on the light housing or base somewhere (not the lens) that will identify it.

  • Replacement Bulb for the RV Oval Porch and Utility Light
    I checked with Optronics and the RV Oval Porch and Utility Light # RVPL5A that you referenced takes a 1141 bulb. Right now we only have white LED versions like part # DI23VR.
