Default LXi Docking Lights H9406-N

The new NAPA Number for our LXi Docking Bulbs is H9406-N, It's a direct replacement for the originals.

Use a large flat blade to pop out the old, clean the housing and lube the lip of the housing and the bulb with Vaseline and pop the new in. Easy peasy.

Yep, don't mess with the screws! Wish I could find an LED replacement but I do not think it exists.

Make a flat 1/4'' thick alum plate and put the LED on or in the plate and slip it in.

I have seen LED arrays in this size on MCIs, so they are out there. Could this work?

I have found that water collects in the rubber boot that protects the backside of the Landing Light. Drill or cut a small hole in the back lower corner of the rubber boot to allow the water to have a place to drain out. The Landing Light is a two piece glass construction, assembled with some sort of two sided tape. This tape allows water to enter the light assembly and creates it to fail. That is why I have drilled a hole in all my rubber boots. In two of my landing lights I had found algae growing in the contained water, inside the boot.

Check out my Post named: Landing light removal info, need P/N ,post #10 shows the algae and the amount found in one boot.


Thanks for the part number!

Here is what I know:
Docking lights:
• Widest flood spread 70x30 is H9406. (1350 candlepower defocused)
• Less wide flood spread 45x20 is H9414. (2700 candlepower more focused)
• Trapezoidal flood is H9411. (5400 candlepower more focused)
• Off-Road Driving Halogen very narrow beam Sealed Beam Light p/n H9420. (22000 candlepower very focused)

These are also called "small tractor headlights" I prefer the H9406 as it has the widest (flood) coverage.

Chip, That Grote part 63610 might work! The dimensional drawing does not show dimensions on the bulb, just the bracket. They are about $85/ea and my coach has 6 so I am not going to be "the tester" but nice find!
I have 2 burned out H9406's on my bench. My plan (when I get to it) is to try to drill the back and insert an LED foglight bulb.

I have seen that Grote or similar on an MCI seated coach or two over at the shop. I suspect they were standard equipment on perhaps J series? MCI have a good parts dept...

Gunner reading your post just wanted to say thanks. I have struggled with keeping these working. All worked a couple weeks ago. we have been in the coach for several weeks. yesterday morning when I came up front I noticed both green lights were on in the dash signaling all my docking lights were on when in fact they were not. If I turn the switch on the green light gets a little brighter however none of the docking lights actually work. Looking at them I see moisture in pretty much all of them. I thought they were a sealed beam. Thanks to your post my plan is replace the bulbs and drill some drain holes. Im hoping this will fix them.
