RV Bulb Stuck

Challenger GT, has 2 pendant lights that hang down over island (kitchen/galley). One of the bulbs, which is just a small round RV type bulb, is burned out. I have tried twisting it, just pulling it out, and pushing it up and twisting it, but it won't budge. The other one next to it is the same, doesn't want to seem to come out easily. Before I put leather gloves on and break this bulb has anyone got this same 2014/15 pendant lights and familiar with the bulbs?

If they are not LED - they probably overheated and metal in base of bulb that touches contacts in lamp base got soft and molded itself around the contact. That is what happened to us. Very hard to remove.

Thanks Chuck. I was hoping it was just something like I wasn't twisting them correctly or something. Heading out today so this will be one of my traveling rainy day projects to take this light down and do surgery on it.
