"Eyeball" light

Hi folks:

I have a 1979 Trade Wind in acquired earlier this year. It's in great shape and I love it.

Above the dinette, at front of trailer, I have two reading lights that I call "eyeball" lights. They're round, about 4" in diameter, and held in place with magnets. One has a weak magnet and has kept coming loose, yanking the power cord. Power cord finally gave up so I have no power to light.

Anyone replaced these? I have a notion of taking an angle grinder and enlarging hole where the magnets are located. The reach in to find wires, then splice in a new fixture, then patch hole and attach fixture to patch. Thoughts?
