LED Puck Lights

We have a 25' foot EB and while some like the 27' for the bed arrangement, we like the length for our purposes.
However, on the 25' they have LED Reading lights mounted under the sliding storage unit as well as mounted to the wall above the head of the bed. I keep knocking my head on these two reading lights that hang down from the sliding storage area. I'd like to replace them with two of the LED Puck lights like those over the kitchen counter.
Anyone know what brand they are?

Yes, these are the ones:

I actually went through the the (expensive) ordeal of replacing every light in our EB to switch to soft white because the bright white was giving us headaches. With the exception of the light in the shower, closet, and storage compartment, ITC makes every light in the trailer.

What was involved to remove the existing bright-white's from the AS? DO they just pop out if you pull on them, or do you need a tool?

Just an FYI, if you're paying over $1 per LED puck you are being ripped off.

Yes, the ones in the ceiling, you can just get your finger underneath the edge and pull straight down. There are two spring clips that hold them in place when they are in the ceiling. The surface mount puck lights are much more difficult to remove. I was not able to remove them without destroying the the metal finish -- which was fine since I had new ones to replace them with.

Several of my Airstream-original surface-mount LED puck lights (like over the kitchen sink) on my 2015 are burning out. Airstream sent me replacements. But I cannot get under the metal edge to pry the LED fixture open in order to unscrew it from the cabinet surface. Can anyone advise me on what tools or techniques to use to pry this thing apart? I don't care if I destroy it, but I don't want to damage the cabinet! Screwdrivers, nail files, etc have not worked for me. Fingernails are not nearly strong enough.
The industrial design is not great -- I can barely open up the new ones by pressing firmly on the reverse, inner area that's inaccessible when they are mounted.
Thank you!

I used a plastic putty knife to take mine out. you could possibly use a metal putty knife if you tape it up with masking tape.

To be clear, I removed the two drop down swivel post reading lamps that I was continually clocking my head on with the true hanging hockey puck LED lights (OEM - as they match others in the unit). I did not replace any of the recessed lighting pucks. The hanging puck had a turn off surround, and then some screws holding the base plate. It was a 10 minute replacement for both lights.

Sometimes a picture helps... I had lots of wiring issues with my puck lights in my EB. Took me a while to figure it out

I bought a new paint scraper per JPAS' advice to try a putty knife. It was very sharp and it worked! Thank you!
(this is on getting a tool under the outer lip of the puck light collars)
And amusingly, the moment I replaced the one, its neighbor started to flicker...

I replaced nearly all of mine in a 2016 Eddie Bauer. Your fingers can get underneath them... and I've not blemished the airstream in any way and I haven't been easy on them while removing. Replacement is a snap. I suspect they have a bad supplier or a bad run of LEDs. Honestly, I've replaced at least 10 and just requested 4 more replacements under warranty.
