Interior light bulb change 2017 Salem River Cruise Lite 241QBXL

I've searched and found treads regarding bulb changing but yet to find the tread that appears to address changing the interior bulb in my 2017 Salem River Cruise Lite 241QBXL. I cannot figure out how to get to the bulb. (Photo of my light attached)
Help appreciated. ThanksClick image for larger version

I made a typo. It's a 2016 241QBXL, not 2017. Sorry

We have a 2017 Cruise Lite and the lights are slightly different in shape but it looks like they would "open up" the same. I just get a finger nail in the crack between the lens and the housing and push - pops right open...

Thanks larry,
I had tried that but after your reply I got a bit more aggressive with a nail file and popped it off.
Now, seeing that it is a LED chip board and not LED bulbs as I expected, my question is how does one replace it?
And actually I'm surprised its even burned out. I can't believe those LEDs have that many hours on them.
Thanks again for your reply and any additional info you can provide.
Tim

You have to replace the whole light. There is part #s on them ebay, amazon and Walmart carry them.

Thanks 4602. I took down the fixture and turns out one of the wires was loose. Judging from the other two wires in the crimp connector I'm guessing this wire never really was secure and finally vibrated loose.
In any case I have learned a bit more about my trailer.
Thanks again to you and Larry

Glad it was an easy fix!

Sort of a funny side note - our previous TT had incandescent bulbs and I replaced them all with the LED plug in bulbs. Not quite as bright as the incandescent ones but they saved a lot of energy and we frequently boondock so it was a good trade off. Now all the RV's come with LED panels for lights and I'd bet that they use almost as much juice as the old bulbs because they have so many of them!
