It is not as simple as you may think. I tried it all....including duct tape.The dome light is 5" and unless you cover the entire light, which obviously looks really cheap and unsightly in a nice coach...the glow cannot be completely contained and you would no longer be able to use the light for reading.

My fix enable s the light to still be used normally, still look the way it should and eliminate the awful blue glow directly overhead at night.

While there may not be many posts here on this subject, it is a pervasive problem my dealer told me.

The blue light used in the studies is a brighter blue light that would penetrate through eyelids.
The blue lights in my down light buttons are very dim and definitely can't be seen or detected through closed eyelids.
Or possibly my eyelids are extra thick!

Problem fixed perfectly

There are people like me that are affected by even dim lights like this. I travel a lot on business and I have to cover the LED standby lights on hotel tvs...on my phone etc., on order to sleep. Doctor told me my eyelids may not close completely during sleep...and it is a very common thing with many people...hence why even small light sources are bothersome to achieving uninterrupted sleep. Interesting...the service Mgr at my rv dealership told me she had the same problem....

How do you take the light apart to clip the wire? I don't want to break the cover trying to get it off.

If it kept me awake, I would fix it with this.

Carefully pry the light cover off the base with a thin screwdriver. Once you have the cover off, remove the 6 to 8 Phillips head screws that attach the light to the ceiling. You can leave it hanging hooked to the wire.

To open the light, there are another 6 or so Philips head screws that hold the light together...remove them carefully and the light will open up in your hand....and you can see all the little LEDs inside. You will also see the 2 little Blue illuminated LEDs mounted on both sides of the on/off switch. These are the little buggers you want to kill.

Take a small pair if diagonal cutters and carefully snip the Blue LEDs where they are soldered to the base circuit board. They will snip very easily...and the Blue light will snuff out. Nothing else needs to be done. They are wired in parallel.

Try the on/off switch and you will see that the normal white LEDs still operate normally.

Reassemble the light....remount it and problem solved. The light still operates....and no more alien landing lights shining in your eyes at night.

Has anyone asked Prime Time for a replacement fixture without the nightlight feature?
