Lighting problem Anthem 2013 RBQ

Does anybody have a problem with the overhead lights on the counter/sink area or have a solution?
They keep burning out or come loose and need to be pushed back into the socket.

What bulb is in that socket, if it is an 1156 and you have to keep pushing it back in then you have one of two common problems.

Problem one: Failure to turn the bulb to lock it in, It turns clockwise, just a couple of degrees, so the pegs on the base engage latches in the socket.

Problem 2: Center insulator cracked and not holding the center pin against the lamp properly.

Single contact center insulators are hen's teeth, I looked all over for 'em and finally stopped in a Pilot or Flying J east of Indy last spring,, he had 'em on the close out shelf, but ask at your local Audo parts place, they can order them if they don't have 'me in stock.

Home is where I park it!

Are those the bakelight sockets with the copper pins? They flatten out and need constant tweeking. I ordered new ones though Amazon, capable of using a #1076 single contact bulb.

we had a similar problem with our 2012 Anthem 42RBQ... had to replace a couple more than once. seemed like the problem went away after a few replacements. it also helped in other areas of the coach to replace the halogen bulbs with LEDs when the halogen bulbs burned out.

Ours burned out almost immediately after taking delivery. The best thing to do is don't install them bare handed. The oil in our skin will make the bulbs burn out prematurely. Since I installed the new ones, there doing better. I notified Jacob at Entegra and he sent some replacements.
