Help with my interior lights!

I have a 2014 Rockwood 2280BH. The brochure says the lights have jack inputs for accessories but my bunk fan with a 1/4" plug doesn't seem to fit in there. I'm not sure what the Jack in my interior light is for. So I bought a couple bunk light adapters with jacks. Now my issue is I can't figure out how to take off my interior light fixture so I can tap into the 12v wires. Any ideas how to take the light off? I'll attach a picture of what it looks like.

I only can speculate that the "plug access" would a 12 volt supply for small accessories.....

That's what I thought but my 1/4" plug in my bunk fan won't plug into it, but I agree it's some sort of 12v connection

If the connection looks like a microphone jack/plug see this thread for more info on what I found.


Bed Light cable on SV235RKS


If that is the case, one option would be a light fixture to replace your light with a bunk light jack.http://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Ligh...cs/RVIF32.html

I think you got the older style bunk end lights. My old pop up used the 1/4 headphone jack type. The new unit like your pics uses a smaller one. Maybe 1/8. Check with your dealer.

I called my dealer and they said they would have to see the light yet I bought it from them.... I wonder if I could call rockwood.

So I emailed Forest River today and this is what they said about my light.

Yes, the new trailers have a new LED light in it with a different jack from what your old trailer has. If you purchased a new trailer then it should have come with new fans that work with those jacks. I don't have the size of that jack but I might be able to get it if you need me to.

My camper didn't come with bunk fans though. If I could find the bunk fans that work with my camper I would purchase them. I responded with that and we will see what they say.
