How to replace long vertical accent lights in bedroom

Can anyone tell me what kind of bulbs and how to replace the tall vertical accent lights in the bedroom of my 2015 4018 DS? There are 3 such units in my coach.



Also, how do I remove the screen on the Fantastic Fans in either bathroom? Previous coach had several screws around the circle accessable from the bathrooms but none in the rim here and afraid to put too much strain on the rim to see if it just snaps in place.

As far as the Fan Screen, it has a lip on it that you pull down on it and the screen will pop out. Not sure on the Accent Lights, hopefully someone will chime in on that.

If you have "stuff" on the top side of the screen, just start the fan and thump the screen. The fan will suck the "stuff" up and out.

The accent lights are attached by small screws that are accessed from the back. They are hard to spot as they sink into the soft wood.

What kind of bulbs do they use? And since access is from the back I assume that means the room will have to be In to reach the back?
Appreciate the info, I had no idea how to get to the bulbs and we have just really started using them since the light is not as bright as the ceiling lights are even on Dim.

Yes you will have to have the slides in. I don't know about the bulbs as I never had to change one.

On our DSDP the accent lights are an LED strip. Wiring is connected at the bottom. The lowest and highest trim pieces are on magnets.
