Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Removing LED Ceiling Touch Light


Anyone know how to remove/replace these LED touch lights? I cannot find a way to take the old ones out.

Without seeing how they are installed within the RV, I'm guessing.  We have lights that are flush with an under cabinet installation or in the ceiling.  With ours, we have to pull down on the fixture, which allows one to hold onto the base.  If you are removing them entirely, you may need to try that and see if they can be completely removed for replacement or whatever.  If you are wanting to simply replace the "bulb," then holding the base and twisting the "cover" may gain access to the area for the "bulb."

I'll second what Terry said, there has to be a way to take them out, someone put them in and it's a rare bird where things are installed without a way to service them. Please let us know what you find, 'cause I'm sure someone else has or will have the same issue.

What Terry said. We have similar ones in our New Horizons and the dome cover comes off...which lets us change the bulbs as ours are not LED...and also reveals the screws holding it up. There could also be some sort of spring clip on the back side that compresses than expands once it is pushed into the hole.

Sorry.  I forgot to mention what Neil did.  If completely removing, there is some kind of mechanism that is spring-loaded to hold the fixtures in place once it has been pressed into the cavity in which it is to rest.

I couldn't get the image to post, but this one may be the more modern style of light fixture.

I think that ours may be more like this next one.
