Motion Sensing Step Light Remove?...

I have a New Keystone Cougar 5th wheel with the motion sensing step light... It basically has a mind of its own and turns on and off all the time without any movement near it... There are no switchís to it and I have tried to remove or pop it off (I just want to disconnect the power to it as I donít really want it if itís on all the time)... Iíve tried twisting it, moving it up down and sideways And then took a flat heat screwdriver to try and pop it off but nothing seems to set it loose... There is no access from behind...

Does anyone know the trick to getting inside without destroying it?...

If you can, cover the motion sensor and take a pic. There is too much glare for me to see.

I installed similar motion sensor lights in our fifth wheel. Mine have a "mounting plate that screws to the wall and the "light assembly" snaps onto the mounting plate. On mine, there is a small "indention" on the bottom so you can use a common screwdriver to pry the light off the mounting plate.

Use a mirror and flashlight to view the bottom of the light, you'll probably see that "indention".

I have the same motion light in my 2020 Cougar. Sometimes it comes on so dim I can't see it and next time it might come on normal. I haven't been able to get the cover off either. Funny it quit working just after one year.

I have the same one on my Montana High Country fifth wheel. I just examined it and it looks like there is a catch in the middle on the top and one at the bottom, that snaps in place, but then can't be pulled out. If you use a butter knife or a very thin screw driver, you can push that plastic tip so it will unsnap from the wood around it. Be careful though, too much "push" and you can break it completely off.

FYI ... mine is driving me nuts also. Mine flickers!

Here ya go, I removed mine, and yes, I broke one of those plastic tips, but the cover still snaps back on ok:





Once the cover is removed, there are 4 screws holding the white opaque holder that the light shines through. Here are two photos, one showing the top screws, the other showing the bottom 2 screws. I cannot turn the light off, so I tried covering with my hand to help eliminate glare.

Thanks for doing that Dutchman. I got rough with mine and got the cover off. I broke the same tab doing it. At least I can find a replacement for it now. My wife is disabled and sleeps in a recliner and that motion light is nice when she gets up in middle of the night. The light is a Facon Model number AIS-B. I did find them on Amazon.
