Tiffin, Pheaton

Has anyone had to change the exterior porch light bulb on a tiffin pheaton MH? Can you just remove the clear lense and replace bulb or do you have to remove the complete fixture to get to the bulb.
If I have to remove the whole fixture, I'm thinking about replacing fixture with the Smart Light 1000 w/motion sensor. Any help and/or suggestions are appreciated.

You only have to remove the lens to access the bulb. The Smart Light 1000 is also nice.

The lens is hard to remove and also had silicone all around the edge, I guess Tiffin dose this so lens will not pop out on road.
I would like to install the smart light also. Hope it covers existing.
Good Luck

The Smart Lite covers the outline of the old lite used in 99% of RV's. It uses the SAME mounting holes... Took all of 30 minutes to install.

Just replaced my oem porch lite with the 1000. Hardest part was removing silicone. Lite works great and provides much more coverage.

I was considering changing to a motion sensing porch light. After reading reviews, it seems like lots of them fail after 6-12 months of use. I would be interested to learn of a motion sensing replacement porch light that is dependable. Thanks!
