Need source for replacement Tail Lights for Pinnacle

We are having some problems with our 2011 Pinnacle's LED Tail Lights.

Some of the LEDs in the tail lights are starting to flicker / blink and fail.

I am looking for a source for replacement Tail Light assemblies.

Got any ideas on a source I can order them from and have them shipped to us?

Here's the mfgs website for Bargman.... you don't have to buy direct, in fact, you can probably get them cheaper / just as fast shopping ebay (buy-it-now) and internet stores....

Depending how adventurous you are, you may consider this. I would bet $ the failures are caused by cracked solder joints. A touch-up with a pencil type soldering iron would fix them.

The tail lights are made by KaperII, they are part number L03-0066

They are recessed in the rear Fiberglass Cap on our Pinnacle.

They are sealed fixtures, I found 1 on Ebay, after I get it installed I will take the old one apart and see if it can be repaired.

If you main junction box is exposed, might want to check it....here's what mine looked like....had to take all the splices apart, clean and reorient the wire nuts to keep from collecting water

Got the replacement light I ordered from Ebay Trailer Part Supplier.

Exact replacement in new packaging.

Decent price too, about $15 each.
