Smile LED bulb replacement

I have a 2016 Jayco Jayfeather X23B with the LED ceiling lights. Anybody know how to get the cover off to replace the bulbs? It's driving me nuts and that is a very short trip. Thanks in advance.

Wait..... it's 2016 with LED'S and they need replaced already?

I'm sure someone will be along with something that's actually useful soon! If not, if you include a pic the rest of us will be glad to guess for you.

If it's the same round fixture I have in my 2016 Jay Feather with the on/off button in the center, it has 3 little tabs on the plastic lens. You just need a thin blade screwdriver to get in between the lens and the housing, and gently pry one out. Then you can easily pull the whole lens out.

Surely you're not replacing LED's already, are you?

Without actually seeing it, usually you squeeze the sides in and slide off.

That's the ones I have, thank you so much. NO, I don't have to replace them yet BUT why wait until the last minute, right? Thank you for the info, much appreciated.

I believe that most light covers have come off the same way for about 50-60 years.

The reason you should not replace a working LED light is that there is a fair chance that you would be replacing it with a less reliable bulb. I have found that as much as 25% of the LED bulbs I have bought have failed within 6 months. The rest seem to last forever.
