Smile Dometic Awning Strip Lights

The Dometic Awning Strip Lights on my 2017 FR Sierra Destination trailer,39RL, .stopped working. I checked the fuse block inside the main control panel( on wall just inside my sliding glass doors) where breakers are located and all are ok. Breakers are all “on”. Is there a second fuse panel somewhere I am missing? I checked light wires at the awning. No issues or damage. If I have to replace the strip is there a procedure for removing it? Any help, suggestions to troubleshoot would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

When you say you checked "light wires at the awning" do you mean that you checked to see if you had power there and you did?

If so, that surprises me as LED's generally last a long time. Must have got a bad set. If all the fuses are good, that would have been the first place I sent you looking, for a pinched, broken wire as that or a corroded or bad connector are usually the reason for LED's going out.

As far as the procedure for removing the light strip, it depends on where and how it's mounted. Some are just held on by self adhesive. Some are mounted under the edge of a rail and some are screwed in place every so far. So your going to have to identify which of the above you have and report back for a solid answer.

do you have a remote for your awning lights? with ours, if you used the remote to turn them off last..... You have to use it to turn them back on. same if you use the wall switch. Could be the issue?

Absolutely could be the issue. I don't have a remote so that slipped my mind but have read of that being the issue for multiple people in different posts.
