Several Questions from Newbie

Just bought a locking hinge pin to protect my Blue Ox tow bar from those who would want one without paying for it. The lock says it is for class III and IV. I did an internet search on Google and it looks like Class III and IV are the highest rated for towing. Can someone confirm that this will be OK for towing my Ford Focus? My coach is a Thor Hurricane 33T. I have some light bulbs I need to replace. The light socket looks like this.

Double Lens Dome Light--Ivory - Progressive Dynamics PD772IWV - Light Fixtures - Camping World

I do not see any screws on there anywhere to take it down to access bulbs. I am sure it unsnaps in some way, but don't want to tear it up. Anyone have these fixtures on their coach, that can provide some guidance on how to remove the cover? Thanks for reading.

Gently squeeze the long sides of the lens toward the center to remove

The lens covers should be flexible to the point that by placing your fingers on one side, your thumb on other side and squeezing in at the nearest point near the fixture it will snap out. If very old, yellow and brittle it could snap and need replacing.

I pull a full size Tahoe using a class III/IV pin, I'm sure it's heavier than a Focus.

Hope that helps!
