Question How many newbee's does it take to change a lightbulb?

Can someone please tell me what the secret is to replacing the lightbulbs in the 4X30 overhead light panels? I can't seem to find my way in.

Thanks, Jim

You either leave the light on long enough to heat the cover and make it flexible or use a hair dryer on medium setting. Then pry the cover off from an end. I washed my covers, then heated again to re-install.

I usually tried to replace ALL the bulbs in those lights when one went bad. It is a pain to get in there and you run a REAL risk of breaking the lens each time you have to get in there.

Talking Re: light bulb replacement

Newbee or oldbee, anyone who hasn't read amfab's post on this CAMPING GRINS thread has missed a classic piece of airstreamforums humor.
