365saq ceiling lights

Hello all, I have a 2012 saq365 and Ive got three or four ceiling lights that are burned out in the kitchen and hallway over stairs to front bedroom,anyone know how to change these? I tried to grab the round lens and turn it hoping it would thread off to reveal a bulb i could change, but it feels as though the whole fixture is spinning with it. I can pull down on the lens and the whole fixture starts to pull down and springs back up when released. I dont want to force anything and break something and of course a call to the dealer where we purchased the camper was pointless, they dont have any idea what fixture i have and we are 2 months past our 1 year service agreement so no big help there. So any advice would be appreciated, Thanks

I have the same trailer, and I was thinking that they just pulled down. I'll go out and check it out in a bit and report back if no one has chimed in by then.

Got a little sidetracked but discovered that I had a blown light as well. Spent a couple minutes looking at the light and I'm as stumped as you are now. Have you found the solution to them yet?

Had first blown bulbs in my Georgetown this past trip. I have flat mount ceiling lights with a chrome trim and on these the center opaque lens screws off. Under counters and cabinets there are lights that are not quite flush mounted and the chrome ring and the lens screw off. I also have some ceiling flush mounted fixtures that does not have the chrome ring only a flush mounted lens visible and the lens screws off. I had to use damp cloth to be able to grasp the lens without slipping. Hopefully this helps if not you might try posting pics of lights. Good Luck!

I suspect you have the same fixtures as I do. Take a look at the pics below. I posed a similar question on the forum a couple of weeks ago and I received some suggestions that the lenses could be unscrewed. I tried, but mine just spin.

My dealer is closed Monday, but if I get off in time to stop by on my way home I'll ask and let you know what I find out. Stay tuned for more details (hopefully)...

Figured it out. The lens just pulls off. They are hard, but they do pull straight off and don't screw on. I pulled the socket down out of the ceiling and grabbed the housing with one hand and the lens with the other and separated.

I've been concerned about breaking something or pulling the fixture out of the ceiling. How did you manage to pull the fixture out of the ceiling before pulling the lens off?

I didn't pull it completely out, just far enough to get a grip on the housing.
