    Hi I have a 2008 Jayco Featherlight caravan and cant seem to figure out how to get at the bulb/bulbs in the overhead lamps fitted to the slide out compartment. The lamps are of the domed frosted glass type held in place by a chrome bezel which also holds the small push button on/off switch. There is no obvious fixing screws and i have tried rotating the bezel in both directions and the whole unit moves through a few degrees, can any body give advice please.

    Hi. We have a Jayco fifth wheel and have the same lamps as you describe in the slide out.

    From memory I'm sure we've removed the shade (which would then allow you to get at the bulb) by unscrewing the metal bit under the shade.

    Will check it for sure next time we go but that won't be for a couple of weeks.

    I don't know the exact lamp you mean but if it is similar to this one then it may well be that the frosted dome is held by clips (is it really glass or plastic?). If it is then a slim blade slipped between the dome and bezel can be used to assist in releasing the clips.

    If it's the same as ours it's probably this one Graham.

    Just checked with Al and he definitely undid it by unscrewing the bit underneath.

    you unscrew the finial

    You unscrew the brass or metal finial at the bottom of the glass .. may need piles.. use a cloth so not to mark the finial .... once that is removed then you can normally remove the glass shade and get to the bulbs.

    Thanks to Gill and Bobl, the lamp is very similar to the one pictured by Graham (GJH) so I will have a look and see if Grahams instructions do the job.
