Dumb question?

Hello Fellow TTers,

We have an x213 and just went out to see what bulbs we'd need to replace and I couldn't get the caps off. I stopped the husband from strong-arming the base off before checking with all of you.

There seems to be 2 screw driver cutouts on the outer shell of the lights inside the trailer. I assumed it would be the inner light cover that would pop off to expose the bulb not the outer rim that's affixed to the walls, but that's the one with the holes.

Help!

The lenses on my 2015 30.5 simply slide back, then down and off

Thanks for the suggestions gang... I'm not sure if we have the sliding type, see attached picture. Seems like the cover has to be popped off, but I'm always concerned with breaking these things.Click image for larger version

You grab the lense near the center and squeeze in. Then you can just sinple slide outward and it will fall in your hand... You can see the slots in this google photo...

I agree. They don't look like mine or look like they slide.

From the pic, the two small notches at the ceiling line look like that's where the open point might be. Like the entire cover snaps over a base that's mounter the the ceiling.

Not really sure

We have the same type of light shown in your photo and the service manager told me to insert a small flat head screwdriver in the slot and gently pry it off. I didn't try it since we already have LED bulbs installed at the factory.

As just stated you probably already have LED bulbs so why change them?

Yup, after closer inspection this morning I managed to pop off the translucent lens to reveal the LED lighting. One less modification on the list... And one less thing to buy
