Question How to replace the light bulb by the hitch

How do I get to the light bulb of the outside light by the tongue? I think it is burned out, at lease that's what I am going to assume first. I cannot see any type of release for the lens cover on the outside. That's probably a good thing due to moisture, etc. It has a switch on the light itself.
It is a 2011 Rockwood Mini Lite. Thanks in advance.

I do not know about your unit, so take this with a grain of salt. My amber light burnt out tonight. I figured its a pop out/ pop in set up. I took a small flathead screwdriver, slide it around the bottom and popped it out. Worked like a charm.

Look closely, there may be a little slot to get a mini flat top screw driver between the lense and the housing.
Basically it just snaps in.

Thanks for the help. It's 28 degrees this morning in North Missouri, so I may wait for it to warm up a bit before tackling this project. I knew there had to be a way; just didn't want to tear it up trying.

If it's like this one, there is a small slot at the bottom (switch side) to let you pop the lens off.

Replace it with an LED

I've replaced all of my lights with LED s from eBay. They don't run your battery down, and they last much longer.
