Awning led lights

About half on my led lights on my awning, what do I need to replace them?

You will have to replace the complete length. You can go to any rv dealer, camping world, walmart, or amazon and get the length you need. They are 12VDC unless you have the multi-colored strip then it will most likely be 24VDC with a controller.

RGB is not necessarily 24VDC.



I've installed hundreds of meters on different vehicles using 12VDC no problem. Even my own.



There are many things to consider when replacing a light strip. Width of channeling, wire routing, do you want SMD? 50/50? RGB50/50? 3528? COB? Termination points? IP68 or nah?

Mike, did you have any luck replacing it? Mine is probably 1/2 out as well. Iíve looked but donít see how the lights are hooked into the wiring. I donít wonít to go ripping out a bunch of stuff for just a string of lights. But if someone says itís easy...

Are aftermarket LED lights available that just slide into the awning track?

Highly recommend these: https://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-2...?rmmds=myorder


They just slide right into the track after you slide the old one out. For $10, you also get color.

Place lights on the side of the HM, use the switch to control them. I am Planning to do this on mine. Mounting them on the roller does not make sense to me or the DW.
