?? on interior of 26xd

Since new I have what appears to be some sawdust in a couple of the little domes over the over lights. How do you remove these? I tried unscrewing and just pulling but don't want to brake it. It aggrevate's me every time I look up. Thanks

These are the little round dome shaped overhead lights in the ceiling I'm referring too. Not the switches It is the bulb cover I call it or fixture

Not sure which light you have but watch this video. If this looks like yours, he appears to take a small screwdriver to pop it off.

There may be a small notch along the edge that you would push in on. Hope that helps.

In our 2018 Greyhawk, you can remove the cover by just palming it and turning counter clockwise. About a ¼ turn releases the frosted plastic cover from the base mount. This goes for both the 5" and 3" LED ceiling lights. Owing our RV for over a year now, we still have little styrofoam beads making there way from the ceiling... a never ending process removing that stuff.

Mine were round glass and to get to the bulb you need to twist it counter clockwise about an inch or so and they'll come right off. Some, however are on pretty tight and take some effort to loosen. I just replaced nineteen halogen bulbs with led's. Like I said, some came off easy and some were very tight.

I just did mine for the first time before our last trip out. I just walked around with the trash can and dumped them. Some were worse than others. Thankfully I had a good tech at my PDI who told me how those work. He also mentioned the first time I clean them won't be the last.

We have the old style, and the unit is 6 years old. I need to clean them again. Now days it is very little sawdust, mostly tiny little bugs that get trapped in there and die. I never seam to see them around me.
