I have the same trailer, 2017 199FKS, and had the same question. The light by the door appeared to have dead bugs in it (eww!) and I wanted to clean it out. I repeatedly tried for weeks to get the cover off, to no avail. I too was afraid of breaking it and didn’t want to force it to come apart. What I finally did was stick a thin screwdriver between the lens and the frame around it, and carefully push outward on the frame. At the same time, I had to stick my fingernail in between the frame and the inner light fixture itself where it sits flush with the ceiling, so that I did not rip it out of the wood. This was not easy to do but I did it with some coaxing, and some sore fingertips afterward.
The little indents you can see on the side of the light are tabs that snap into the inner light fixture housing. I wasn’t ever able to get the light apart by putting the screwdriver there, as the design creates tension there (hence the need to push outward on the light frame). The light fixtures contain integrated LEDs that cannot be taken out easily. Turns out my “dead bugs” were actually pieces of sawdust that had somehow ended up there during construction. (Sawdust seems to come out of many places, the more I move my trailer… ha!). I’ve attached some photos so you can see what I’m talking about. Forgive my poor photography skills.
