How to Replace Ceiling Bulbs in a Jayco Eagle Pop-Up Camper

••• Bulb image by Illimity from Fotolia.com

If you have a Jayco Eagle pop-up camper that you use often, sooner or later you may find yourself with a burned-out bulb in the ceiling of your camper. Jayco's Eagle camper has 12-volt interior lights, which look a bit different than your average bulb. They also may be harder to find than your average screw-in variety, but they're still relatively easy to install. These days, you also have the "greener" option for these types of bulbs, including fluorescent and LED varieties.

Step 1

Disconnect the power source of the camper to avoid any possibility of electric shock.

Step 2

Use a screwdriver to remove the housing around your ceiling bulb.

Step 3

Remove the bulb from the light socket. Instead of a standard household screw-in bulb, the12 volt bulb probably has 2 prongs that allow it to "plug" in to the outlet. Locate the socket and pull the bulb away from it to remove it.

Step 4

Place your new bulb in the socket.

Step 5

Reconnect the power to your camper and test out the new bulb.

Step 6

Reinstall the plastic housing around your bulb once you are sure the bulb is working properly.
