Puk Lights Replacement

In two years of ownership of my 2016 23FB I am on my third puk light needing replacement. I have never before in my life had a small puk light that was so unreliable that they don't have a reasonable life span.

I suppose these lights have been on for about 3 hours in the last two years.

Can anyone recommend a replacement that will fit a 2016 Int 23FB. $50.00 a fixture just does not seem to be reasonable from Airstream.

Thanks,

Dave

Most people would spell it "puck" because they're shaped like a hockey puck.

The circular LED lights set into the ceiling of modern Airstream trailers.

Thanks to all for replying. Now how do you get them out. The one above the sink is screwed in from above no way to access without completely removing cabinet .

Thinking I may have to carefully use hole saw from above to access from above.

Anyone done this?

Thanks, Dave

WAIT with that hole-saw.

I don't have an International, I don't know how the in-cabinet lights are attached but the ceiling pucks set into the aluminum ceiling have a spring-loaded clip system built in. In my trailer the holes in the ceiling are irrgular and BARELY big enough to get the clips out, it took some fiddling. and then when I got it out I realized that for putting color filters in, I only needed to pop out the center lens ring which is easy, but that's not what you're asking about.

The installation instructions pdf (a link on the page djarrett links above) indicates that the larger bezel can be removed with a twist to expose screw holes. If the lights look the same, maybe they're mounted into the cabinets that way. Try rotating the bezel a bit to see if it'll come down and expose screws.
