LED bulb replacment

Hi all well have been fulltiming since July 23 traveld from Pa. To Wa. Down the 101 with stop in Or. and Redwoods, over to Yosemite to Vegas now in Sedona Az. All in all I will give my 2014 3051S a B+. Would love to give A but some minor things are bad.
FIRST one LED light under cabinets keeps going on and off. ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GET THE BULB OUT??? HELP.
SECOND does anyone know how to remove outsidw TV to get to connections. Have tried pulling pushing lifting twisting. No go.
THIRD qhen rhe slide went in a little while ago the trim started to pull away. When i moved slide out it went back in some. Also the rubber seal slide down.
Now called dealer to set up repairs when in town in Nov. Was told warranty just ran out and will be out in Nov. And if alignment not covered by extended warranty. This is main reason no A grade. I have pic dated with trim pushed out before warranty out. And if the 3051S super slide can only last a year before repairs then that is sad. Now I NEVER open or close slide unless unit is level and jacks down.
So besides that we love the room have 7000 miles on in 3 1/2 months.
I DO LOVE energy effeciency of propane appliances. HATE double sink and faucet, spkashes alot of water on counter.
Thanks for any info on fixes

Can't help with the light. The outside TV can be removed by lifting up and lightly pushing in at the same time. Be careful, you have to balance it on the edge of the compartment to unplug the cables.

Here it is. I hope I do not have to unscrew the whole thing. No way into from cabinet.
I am actually in Camp Verde RV Park just south of Sedona but this whole Verde Valley area is just beautiful. Spending 2 weeks here.

Looks like you can probably pull back a finger or two to get the disc out to get to the connection. Probably a loose solider point.

Honda tried pushing tabs but no good. Probably to scared to breat one then be out a whole fixture instead of bulb.
Rapinii Thanks, I finally just said ok push up hard and really pushed ; the tv finally moved. The problem was the bottom right holding screw and spacer were tightened SOO much that it actually left indents and marking of star washer on the metal bracket for TV. So tight back of TV was pushed in on that side. So a screwdriver to loosen screw a touch and it now comes off and goes on correctly.

USNMM1 Our 3051s's must have been built one after the other, after reading some of your other post's we are matching problem for problem exactly!!! Good luck with getting yours fixed under warrenty, mine was, all they did was put bigger screws in. I have since learned it should be riveted in. (Sorry talking about the slide bracket)

Like I posted on other string; it is weird the number of same issues. But I agree so far all warranty work covered and repaired. I am now just a little worried about the extended warranty I bought from Dealer. Not 3rd party supposably it is through FR.

You need to pull back the three locking tabs and pull the bulb out. Look up that bulb configuration on the net, I believe you will find it has to prongs that plug into the socket of your fixture.

After you remove the problem bulb, switch it to another fixture to see if its the bulb. I'd do that prior to your dealer visit, just incase its a wiring issue.

Good luck.
