Lights

We have many ceiling lights in our sanibel, have one not lighting. Called the stealer (dealer) and asked how to remove the cover to replace the bulb. Silence, so does or has anyone removed the ceiling light cover in a Sanibel?
I played around but did not want to break it. Monday I will call customer service, if no answer here.

If I remember correctly, it has the flush mount frosted glass lenses??

I think you actually twist them one way (I forget which way) as the lenses are notched.

Those are not LED lights. I've opened mine; no twist. You just pull on one side and it will come out. I agree that it takes more force than you're comfortable with. (I actually found a discarded instruction sheet for those lights that didn't get cleaned out somehow, and that was the instruction there as well.) Just pull one side.

I guess I could add that those are G4 12v, 20watt bulbs.

Wayne, I'd take a look first. I kinda doubt that there's room for LEDs in there. It's pretty tight. Also, I don't think they make LEDs that are that bright (but that's probably ok).

I had ordered one of these G4 LEDs to try in those hockey-puck ceiling lights. I found that they work great! They actually may be a little brighter than the 20w bulbs that are in there now! Note that this is the wide-voltage-range bulb. They make the same thing that is 12-volt only. I don't trust those to last very long in an RV.
Unfortunately, they do not work (fit) in the under-cabinet lights. These are the ones I was really anxious to replace because they get so hot.
If anyone has found a good solution for those, let me know. I may try to see if it's possible to remove the reflector in them.
I also replaced the 5 1076 bayonet bulbs over table & sink with these 1142 LEDs. They are not as bright as the 1076's, but we always felt that those were too bright anyway. We like the result.
