Outside Light Lens Replacement

Looking for some information on switching out the clear plastic lens on the outside light to an amber/yellow one. The current clear one is just too bright for us. Wondering if anyone knows where to purchase replacement amber lenses. Thanks in advance for any input.

Hi: mcdonner... I went to my RVTech and he just took an amber one off and put my clear one on. They're std. RV porch light fixtures. Alf

I had an amber porch light and switched to clear because I couldn't see the step and the mosquitoes could still see the door. You might try an amber bulb first.

If you are looking for a nice upgrade to the stock light then consider this. They also make an amber lens kit.

RV shops often have them. You can look at the RV suppliers such as Camping World (maybe?) and have one sent. Littlehousecustoms maybe?
