FYI Burning prcept

We have one storage compartment reserved for just out door games we have a jumbo Chinga set made with wood blocks well it shifted in the compartment and turned on the light that caused the lens to melt the bag the blocks were in and one of the boards to get a black mark we got lucky and had no flame but I am going to change all the storage compartment bulbs to LED bulbs.

Same experience

We had a similar experience in our Greyhawk. Our vinyl carpet bag trigger the light switch and turned on the light. Created enough heat to melt the bag against the lense. Luckily I was alerted by the horrible smelling smoke.

Very clearly represents a fire hazard. I will also be looking to replace with LED or remove the lights.
