Exterior Light -How Do I Get Inside?

I have a 2014 Forest River Ultralite 5er model 8289 WS with two exterior side light fixtures that I canít figure out how to get into.
One of them is leaking, and before sealing the outside, Iíd like to open it up and dry it out.
Obviously, there needs to be access to change the light bulb, but how?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Typically, most of them have a small tab on the lens holding them in on either the top or bottom. You would just need a small screwdriver to pop them out. While you are in there, replace the bulb with an LED.

Here is one:

Now it is quite obvious that the bulb compartment of this fixture was never intended to be waterproof. No gasket to be found under the lens.

Thanks again.
