Yes Rev.,
There is a specific part number for the lights with the connectors. As I recall without getting out the order paperwork it has a "ME" at the end of the part number. I ordered the first set online and it didn't have them. I contacted Command Elec. and they sent me the ones with the connectors with a return label for the first set I ordered. Worth waiting for.

Almost got it right.... just looked up the shipping paperwork. The Item# is 003-30LEM3 LED, Surface Mount Triple Tail light. Ordered the butyl tape from Amazon and got the stainless steel pan head screws #8 from Lowes. Got rubber o-rings for the pan head screws at a hardware store.

Command Electronics LEDs

Here are a few pictures of the project. The finished install pics don't do the new LEDs justice.

If you click on the first picture you will notice two things. First is that the original installer pretty much missed the wood with the lower center screw and this was done on the left side too. The other thing is that you can see that even with the LED model there is a gap between the black plastic and the red outside piece. I am pretty sure that this is how the moisture was getting into the fixtures. Hopefully the butyl rubber tape I used closed that gap and it is waterproof. Once that tape sticks, it really sticks so it is a good thing I will never have to replace the LEDs.

New SS Screws

Here is what I used for new stainless steel screws. Also used some very small o-rings from a different hardward store. Screws were from Lowe's.

Looks great! I assume it was as easy to do as it looks as far as installation? I used butyl tape when replacing the bulbs on one side last year- can't wait to see how that comes off...

Yes, pretty much that easy after I confirmed the #8 screws and got the tape stuck on the lights. As far as getting the tape off, I don't envy that aspect of the job. It is still worth it if it keeps the units water tight. I almost went with the factory sponge gasket and decided to err on the side of overkill.
