Interior ceiling lights
 
I would like to put LED "bulbs" in our flat flush mount lights throughout our MH. Not sure how they come off. I don't want to break em. Anybody taken one off before?

LEDs
 
I have replaced a couple of these that were mounted in overhead cabinets. (Over the sink & couch in a 378). Turn the the outside metal flange counter clock wise. Its kind of like a bayonet type bulb fitting. Be careful, the glass lens was loose on mine. I don't know what your using for LEDs but FYI Home Depot has 2 models of Philips "G4|Capsule" LEDs for $5.95ea. Way cheaper than the ones at camping world. We found the lower lumen model to be an exact match light wise to the existing halogens. I've got a couple of the higher lumen models to try in the center. However, I've had no luck breaking one of those fixtures open.

I just replaced all of mine. The ceiling lights unscrew by turning the glass inserts about a 1/4 turn ccw. The lights in the cabinets unscrew by turning the chrome ring 1/4 turn ccw.I used warm white 3w LED from Amazon, 10 for $14 with free shipping(prime) and got them in 1 day. Brand Name is Rayhoo. Time will tell if they are cost effective but they work great and are the same color as the halogens.
