A​re you replacing the whole fixture including the base? These are made by a number of companies and most have their name or part number on the lense. You can find these at many online dealers and most all RV shops. They come as either one or two wire hookups. If only one, then the fixture grounds through the mounting screws. Take a box knife with a new blade and carefully cut the sealer around the base and once the screws are removed you can lift it off. Cut the connection and butt splice a new one on with the new light. Add some putty tape under it and re-attach it and reseal it. I like Dicor 501 Sealant, but there are others that work well. If you want one that is clear then Sikaflex is the best choice. Hope that points you in the right direction. Please get back to me if you need more here as all follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit.
