Technical Support / Re: Front and rear LED Headlights and tail lights
« Last post by Eric Maclean on September 24, 2023, 01:57:18 PM »
The Hella 8982 are supposed to be a the same dimensions and possibly a direct replacement for the old Hella 5603 but they bolt in from behind as apposed to through the face as the old 5603s did they also don't offer a backup light in the 8982 led.  I personally have no experience with them, it would be best to contact the distributor first before ordering to confirm .

The Hella 8982 led

The old style hella 5603

On the original hella 5603 lights hella used a special bulb holder which clips into the lamp they are hard to find .
The dual filament bulb holder can still be bought as it was used by Volkswagen in their 1985 to 1991 Vanagon

Hope this helps

Years ago I had to bend the air ride valve arm away from a bolt on the frame crossmember. The pressure on the rubber mount for the rod was tearing when the air leveling called for the front to squat.

Some diagrams have been gleaned from forum posts and other sources over years, and I don’t remember each source.  You may find helpful ones with descriptions in Coach Assist (via the link in bold at this page’s top right, then under the Technical menu tab).  An example is owner’s manuals;  for my Coach it’s the ‘06 Monterey manual starting on page 258.  For your rig for which we don’t have a manual listed, you’d want to check the ‘02 Marquis as a close option, although I don’t see as much diagraming in manuals much earlier than the mid-2000’s.  Googling “2001 Marquis diagrams” or similar terminology may turn up what you want too.

What a difference replacing those made. The rig drives and rides so much better!!  The two that were fixed are located behind the fuel tank and in front of LP tank. I still haven’t been able to locate others. I’m a little concerned that when the rods are all the way up, rig down, that they interfere and rub on other air and hydraulic lines but guess it doesn’t dawn much time in that position.

Where do you find those diagrams referenced above?

Just to follow up,

Bill the link for the light you listed is a exact fit and much cheaper than the hella.  It works great.

Eric, as usual you were correct about the problem, the contact ribbon had indeed worn away in several places making it impossible for the bulbs to get 12 volts.

Joel, you are absolutely correct!  I was mistaken the operation of the inverter for 30 Amp service.  When I started the Coach the next morning, all 50 Amp service was restored.  Makes me highly suspect the Transfer switch.  Just don't know if it was a one time fluke or if it is something that needs to be replaced now.
