RV Rectangular Porch and Utility Light with Switch - Clear - RVPL3C

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (178 Customer Reviews)

This is a rectangular, surface mount porch and utility light with switch. This clear light measures 6" long x 3-1/2" wide x 2" deep.


Great service on delivery. Thank you. Screws fit old broken light perfectly. Wire grommet hole is 3 cm off center (old light had center hole), so had to relocate to match hole in sidewall. If you only have a hot coming thru sidewall, then you have to figure a way to connect ground to chassis. Other than that, good.


This was just what I needed. Identical to the broken one on my camper except that the light socket was on the right side instead of the left. I just had to reroute the wires through a new wire path which was accomplished with a 3/8" drill bit and a utility knife. Other than that, it mounted right up to the holes that were already there. Just what I was looking for. Great product.
Thanks for having it in stock.


Exact replacement! Great customer service. Package arrived in timely manner. Lens was damaged in shipment; contacted customer service and replacement was sent on the same day.
Thanks again to Anna and Ashley!!


Prompt and exactly what I wanted



Doing just fine.


Very nice lights, great quality, great price, excellent service, as usual! Will work great on our '96 Coachmen project camper for porch & front service light.


This was a perfect replacement for the front light on my hard-sided pop up. Ordering was quick and easy, and the product installed quickly and worked like a charm. Delivered on schedule in perfect shape.


Nice outside light, especially if you replace the bulb with and LED bulb. There wasn't enough "room" behind the metal back plate for wiring, so I drilled a hole in it and connected the RV & light wires inside. Works fine.



Being an outside light it doesnt get a lot of use, but it still works just fine.


Works good


We "inherited" a 1982 Jayco JayCardinal popup trailer, a hand-me-down from my secretary & her husband. It's in great shape, but I've been fixing little things that had fallen into disrepair; they haven't used the popup for 6-8 years. Noticed that the porch light was broken & had the best price online for a replacement. It arrived 3 days early in perfect condition. Haven't wired it in yet, but I compared it with the original still on the popup & it's the same. Will get it in right away as we are anxious to take our "new" popup camping this summer! Thanks etrailer!


I ordered the wrong replacements (right color but no on/off switch) .They are courtesy lights for the outside of my horse trailer and need to be "off" when I am hauling at night.

Called the 800# and and spoke to Bryan who care of sending me the correct lights and advised me on how to return the incorrect lights. (I thought I needed a packing slip to return, but one was not included in the package). Did not need a packing slip, so I mailed back the wrong lights the next day.

My correct replacements arrived yesterday and they are perfect. is wonderful. The website is user friendly, and the videos on many of the products clarify questions like how to install as well as what the item looks like (from all sides). The staff is friendly, too.


I purchased what I thought was a Optronics RVPL3C but the measurements are not what is shown on the Optronics site. This one is smaller. So I need to find one that is the right size for my Casita. Strangely there is no brand name or model number on any of the ones that I have old or just purchased. That never helps.

The size information listed on Optronics site is incorrect. The light, at its widest point, is 6 inches.


As always etrailer shipped rapidly and the item was well packaged. The light itself got downgraded a star solely because the metal backing plate is not securely fastened to the plastic body which required a little juggling while on my ladder to keep everything assembled while I mounted it. It works as advertised once wired up and mounted. Hey it is less than ten bucks so certainly not a disqualifier!


Light came without screws or gasket. Mounted above trailer propane tanks, light illuminates the back of my pick-up as well as trailer hitch and utilities. Very happy with the results.


I used these to replace the 5 existing lights on the outside of my horse trailer. These seemed to be a direct replacement for the 10 year old lights that came with the trailer. The screw holes all lined up and replacement was a pretty quick job. I only wish the back of the light was solid or sealed to make it a little more weatherproof.


Exact replacement for an outdoor light on my RV that is switchable. It comes with a standard bulb and I will introduce an LED bulb to the light when I mount it for low energy consumption. Very fast shipping, on time, and good quality.


Thanks for the opportunity to comment regarding the recent order from "etrailer" for your lighting products. The items arrived in good condition. The items seem to as advertised. It's very nice to have an organization such as yours to meet the needs of the motoring/trailering community. Your prices are reasonable and your products are of excellent quality.


Works just fine for what I bought it for... I'm using it for a light under the overhang of a goose neck trailer to light up the hitch area for hooking and unhooking.


I will not install the light until next Spring, but by all accounts it will be perfect. 12v leads are plenty long, different options for mounting are available. Is replacement for rear utility light on an 06 16' Scamp Camp Trailer. Very fast delivery. If need be, I will order from this outfit again!


It's working great! I installed an LED light in it to reduce Heat
This trailer has been under a full remodel and it is almost done... thanks for all your help guys!


Great replacement for my old weathered lights. cheaper to buy new lights then just the lenses.. Yes these lights come with a bulb installed.


I ordered this light to replace one on my trailer and it is installed and working great. The delivery time for this light was almost as fast as going to the store and picking it up.


This utility light was the right fit for a replacement in the horse trailer, thank you for your product pictures and correct product information to help make the right selection.


Exactly what I ordered and was easy to install.


One for one replacement of light on horse trailer. Delivery of this item was very quick and installation a breeze. etrailer has been a great resource for trailer replacement parts and the site provides for easy navigation for finding required replacements.


I just sent a review on the trailer door holders, that same review goes for the light assembly also. Thanks for your customer service, very reasonable prices, fast and cost effective shipping. I will be back...

  • Do Amber RV Porch Lights Draw Less Bugs
    Amber lights do tend to draw significantly less bugs as some can't "sense" that color and aren't drawn to it. Not all of them though so there will still be some bugs.

  • Choosing a Trailer Porch Light That is Weather Resistant
    The Bargman Porch/Utility Light # 3478503 that you referenced is not actually specified as being weather-resistant, but the Optronics # RVPL3C does offer similar construction that provides all-weather protection against corrosion, making it suitable as an exterior light. Both lights use the same mounting arrangement and so they are fully compatible.

  • LED Porch Light Recommendations

  • Recommended Interior Lights for Utility Van
    I do have a solution for you for interior lights for your utility van but the Optronics # MC42RB Double Bullseye Trailer Clearance Light does not have a clear lens available. What I do suggest is their Rectangular Porch and Utility Light with Switch # RVPL3C or the version without the switch, part # RVPL1C. Both offer a surface-mount housing like the MC42RB. If you prefer high-efficiency LED lights for reduced power consumption and heat then you might consider the Optronics Opti-Brite...

    The Optronics RV Courtesy Light # 2407764B referenced in your question is intended for interior use because it does not have a waterproof construction. This particular courtesy light is not available in an exterior model, but I may have a solution for you. I recommend looking at similar sized lights, such as the Optronics Porch and Utility Light with Switch # RVPL3C. This assembly measures 6 inches long, 3-1/2 inches side, and 2 inches deep. It provides an all-weather construction that...

  • Replacement LED Porch Light & LED Bulbs for Use in 2015 Thor Ace Motorhome
    I researched photos of your 2015 Thor Ace motorhome to see the shape of the exterior porch light and it appears to be a crescent-shaped light that directs most output downward to the entry step area. All of our available LED-type porch and exterior light assemblies can be viewed on the link provided. None is an exact match for your OEM light but the Optronics RV Porch/Utility Light # RVPL3C is the most similar. I know you mentioned you do not want to simply replace the bulb with an LED...

  • Can the RV Porch and Utility Light be Used on a Camper Shell for Side Illumination for Sled Dogs
    The RV Porch and Utility Light, # RVPL3C, would definitely be able to handle normal highway speeds, if mounted correctly, but a car wash might be a different story. These lights were designed for RVs and they are not normally ran through car washes. If the car wash were a touch-less model then you should be fine, but a car wash with the mops that twirl would most likely cause an issue with the lights protruding from the side of the shell. Another option may be to install a flush mounted...

  • Replacement for Porch Light on Haulmark Trailer
    I'm not sure which brand light you have there, or the dimensions, but it looks a lot like the Diamond # DG52728VP. This light measures 6" long x 3-1/2" tall x 2" deep. It uses the replacement lens # VAL97CR. We also have the Optronics # RVPL3C with the same dimensions that uses # APL1CB for a replacement lens. If it is not one of these brands I can't confirm if the lens will fit or not. Assuming the size of the light matches, you could use either one for a total replacement.
