Light in ceiling question

This is a pic of the lighting we have in our '16 South Wind.
They are about 3" in diameter.
I have noticed there are a couple that are not as bright as they used to be and I feel they are going out.
Question I have is how much of a PIA are they to change and how are they changed?
Can they be changed to LED?
Thanks for any info.

A bit hard to tell from the photo, looks like a slightly out of focus full moon to me. I'd experiment with taking down the cover, if no success, check with a Fleetwood dealer and ask how it's done. If the bulb is an incandescent one, they do get dim as they get used. You might explore replacing the incandescent bulb with an LED bulb. Compare lumens to get proper brightness, Kelvin temperature to get color you like.

Some of the lights of that type , the lens screws off , other units have three spring loaded clips that hold the lamp into the ceiling , so the whole assembly has to be pried down .

Appreciate both replies.

Skip, the pic you posted is what I am looking into changing the existing lights with.
I would like all the lights to be LED for low energy they use.

I'm about 85% changed over to LEDs , had to do 12 florescent fixtures. Now looking for replacement for two of the world's ugliest wall sconces and bath room vanity light bulbs, and I'll be done.

Light in ceiling question

I believe that is already LED...my Bounder ones look the same and are LED...to. Erich push on lense and turn counter clockwise and it will come off...someone else on the forum mentioned a similar issue on their Bounder lights...also dumb question, is it a whole string and if so have you checked the dimming function?

Finally I believe you have to replace the entire fixture...they come out by pulling and have connectors on them. Easily done if they are failing....

Appreciate the info from your Bounder.
There isn't any dimmer function. They are either on or off.
I have a couple going out but in different parts of the coach.
I'm hoping to be able to change them out for brighter than warm
light.
