Interior LED Lights

I have a 2016 vista 30T. Two of the overhead lights have quit working. I have removed the covers but it appears that the LEDs are not removable. Can they be removed or do I need to replace the entire unit. If they can be removed, HOW?

What type of ceiling fixtures are they? If they are the flat "disk" type that unscrew, the bulbs simply plug into the fixture with little prongs.

The other lights on the switch work so the switch is not the problem and they are on two different switches. I took the lights down out of the ceiling just now and they are a one piece unit, the LED is not removable. I am going to have to order two new units, they attach with wire nuts...Called the local dealer and they need the vin and model number to order them and they did not sound cheap, I will be checking with Amazon first. I had heard some of the lights were on recall but apparently not 2016 models...

Good idea to check Amazon. Also Ebay, PPL and even Camping World might have a suitable replacement.

If they are similar to mine, I don't believe they are repairable.

You might want to call Winnebago before you go to a dealer for parts. Winnebago uses ITC as a supplier for most lighting. I can't say for sure that it was 2016 but ITC produced a number of the ceiling lights around then that failed and were replaced under warranty by either ITC or Winnebago. Might save you $$ and Winn will be able to tell from your coach SN.

LED ceiling lights

Try "DREAM LIGHTING" for replacement of the round glass fixtures.

I had a 2016 Sunstar 26HE until last year. I only recall removing one light under the galley cupboard, and it was sort of mounted like a smoke alarm cover, if I recall. It was loose, so I had a quick look before replacing it.
They looked more like a small circuit board with a couple of SMDs, than a bulb of any sort.
No problems with any of them in just under a year.

You need to replace the light fixture. Once you I screw and remove the glass cover, you can pull the light fixture out. There is another current thread about the bad LED lights.

Yes, Lake, but most RV LEDs bought on the internet work great.

Larry, I agree. To clarify, I was just stating that the bulb itself, can't be removed from the fixture and the entire fixture (except glass cover) must be replaced. After replacing two with ones purchased on the Internet, I found out on this forum that the bad lights are a known problem to Winnebago. They provided me with ITC's contact info who sent me a free replacement after the third one failed. I have not had any issues with the replacement lights. Hope this helps.

Smile Interior Ceiling Lights

I removed the guts from the LED ceiling lights in the living room area and installed a automobile lamp socket with a "L" bracket that came with the socket and a two prong wire connector from the new socket and grounded the ground (or return - wire) on the fixture with the pop rivet I used to mount the bracket and feed line from the ceiling and installed a new LED with a automobile base on it. reinstalled the fixture and glass lens. I then purchased six new fixtures from "Dream Lighting website and replaced the four lights over the bed with the new light weight fixtures that have a switch on each light so you can adjust the amount of light you have and also won't break your nose if the glass cover falls off and hits you from the old fixture. Here is the website for Amazon that sells Dream Lighting fixtures that I used in my RV bedroom ceiling.

Glad to hear you got them replaced. Hope more don't fail but you know who to call.
