Often, it is as easy to replace a fixture as it is to fix one.  RVUpgrades is a sponsor here, and offers a wide choice of lights at very good prices.  I have purchased from them several times.

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.

Pop the translucent cover off and the model info and ballast part number ought to be visible inside.  This guide should help:

Or bypass the ballast and install 12v led instead, either a led tube that snaps in with minor wire change, or remove the tubes and balalst and glue in led strips.

Thats the answer. Less expensive and less heat build up
