I have 5 lights to replace (1076) over the island and dinning table that I can not get the correct LEDs to replace what I have. I have ordered twice on Amazon what was to replace a 1076 and I migrated all the other bulbs to LED with no issues... what's up with the 1076?

Thanks

Well now I know that for some unfathomable reason Forest River decide to go with a totally proprietary lighting system that can not be repaired but replaced only. Interesting.

You may want to walk a dealership lot or two. FR isn't the only manufacturer that has gone to the potted LED's on circuit boards. Keystone, and Jayco to name two more.

Alot of the LED bulbs are not worth beans! I was talked into pricey LED bulbs for a kitchen remodel. They cost me over $40.- a bulb and was told they would last fifteen years. Two years later they all started going out. The lighting store wouldn't honor the warranty. I went to another specialty LED bulb store for replacenents. I was told that most of these bulbs are junk and don't live up to the claims of longevity. That really made me angry! Forty dollar light bulbs that really only last two years and I had purchased eight of them!

I went to LED because they don't put out the heat that a normal bulb does.. and cost.. that is why we have "Al Gore's" internet.. LOL! I found some awesome prices on Amazon.

Had some burn out reverse polarity was the culprit. White wire susposed to be ground but could be hooked up backwards.

As 5picker pointed out, the lights the OP is referring to are not individual LED ( bulbs) but rather a module with several LED chips and associated drive circuitry, The components used for the drive circuity is of very poor quality ( cheap) and can not handle the heat they generate and self destruct then the associated LED chip goes out. I suggest if you start having the problems, you ask the dealer for enough to replace all your modules at they will all eventually go out.

Don't go out and buy a bunch of LED lights. Give Andy a call at FR diesel and let him know the issue you are having. All overhead lights come with LED and a bunch have been bad. Newmar also had a big issue with this. Likely the same supplier. They are easy to swop out. Her are the contacts you need also find us on FB. Click image for larger version

Same problem on our Legacy. The units actually had a soldering issue by the manufacturer. Far agreed to replace them but my dealer wouldn't order the replacements unless they were going to install them. After past experiences with the dealer, I wasn't about to take it to them (six weeks and destroy who knows what in the process!). Waited until the one year factory warranty was out, then contacted ITC directly. They responded overnight and shipped me new lights within a couple of days. Turned out that 19 of the 21 lights in the coach were bad. Look them up on the Internet and submit the contact forms - good folks!
