On my 278 there is an under counter galley light that takes a T8 12 inch bulb. A few weeks ago the light went out and we replaced the bulb. Now just a week later it went out again so I picked up another bulb but it is still not working so I am assuming the fixture itself has given up. I'm trying to replace the fixture but coming up short finding a 12" direct wire fixture that will fit into that space since that are measures 3" inches in width and the current fixture is 2.75" wide. I found a replacement fixture from Superbright leds but that fixture came and is 3.25" so no dice. My google searches are not helping. Any idea what fixture is in that galley?

Thanks Joe I had not looked at the parts list for it. I guess I was hoping to get a LED aftermarket to fit but no luck so far. If the price on this is out of sight I may keep looking. I've put in an inquiry through my dealer. I did find a great light but it's not going to fit due to the width of the fixture. This is harder to come by than I thought it would be.
