Help with dinette light

Our dinette light globes keep coming loose and it's a pain to reattach them and so I'm considering replacing the light. I am wondering if anyone had replaced theirs or had a source for 12 volt lights. In lieu of that, what about Blue Locktite to keep them from coming loose?

Also, how does one remove these bulbs for replacement? If they pull out, my hand certainly won't fit in the globe to do so.

Generally they are bayonet lamp bulbs. You push in and twist. I have some lamps that are so tight that you can only change the bulb by removing the shade. So, I changed the bulbs with LEDs that don’t need changed often.

There are zillions of RV lamp choices to replace the lamp if you wish.

Try or better yet do a Google search for 12v RV light fixtures… lots of choices.

Put a little clear silicone on the threads and screw them in, once that dries they'll neither rattle or come loose. To change lamps you normally would use a small suction cup that comes with the fixture but not hard to obtain if you don't have one. That fixture is not too handsome IMHO and you may just find it easier to change to a different one.

We do not like big lights that stick out where we bump them and we did want to change two lights as well as go to LED, so this was a good move for us:

We've never had to change any LED bulb in the RV as they get so little use there! Also without a filiment to break, they are less prone to damage from rough roads.

OP here. A quick update, I pulled the light from the ceiling (of the dinette) and there was enough wire to set it on the table. I haven't decided whether I'm going to take it apart there, or disconnect it and work on it at home. I'll make another post once it's wrapped up.

I did look for other replacement lights but just didn't see any that I liked better.
