Ceiling lights

I have a Jayco Pinnacle 36REQS and would like to know if anyone has ever pulled the flush ceiling light fixture out and how it comes out . What I am trying to do is in the bathroom I would like to add a light to the cabinet that has the mirror and one of the ceiling lights is close enough that I could tap into it for 12v . The existing lights throws a shadow on your face and a light on the mirror would correct this . Just don't want to wreck the light trying to figure it out .

I made it simple n installed a battery LED light from H-Depot n it works great. That was about three yr ago so the battery goes a long way.

The recessed ceiling light fixtures are "snap in". Remove the frosted glass lens by twisting it so you don't chip or break it. Then, use a screwdriver slipped between the flange of the fixture and the ceiling and start gently prying the fixture out of the hole. Work your way around it until it comes out. Be careful because it's held in by two pretty strong springs which will snap your fingers when the fixture is just clearing the hole. If you leave the frosted lens in place during this procedure the springs can chip the edge(s) of the lens when they snap loose (don't ask how I know this).

Poor bulb connection in ceiling lights

I have the standard Jayco ceiling light fixtures with frosted glass covers. I have a problem with some of the fixtures an the bulb connection. The fixture goes dark. I remove the glass cover, wiggle the bulb to remove it, and the bulb lights up again. Stays lit for a while. Then I have to repeat the procedure. This does not happen with all my fixtures. Only a few. Any idea what causes this? I guess I could try a new bulb to see if that helps.

I would start with New bulbs as that sounds like the most likely culprit. If that doesn't solve the issue, you may have some lose wiring above or connecting to the fixtures.
