Awning LED lights failing

LED awning lights seem to be failing after only 2 years.

There are 3 sections of LEDs that are burnt out.

Anyone else experience this problem?

Yes. Mine are just two years old. If left on some seem to come bad on but not all. Bummed!

Had the same thing happen to mine, they replaced them at the frog rally.

I am on my second season using mine and have the same issue. At this time the majority work. I would not mind a few more going out as that baby is way to bright at night.

It is a shame that it is failing. DW felt down when another camper pointed it out. But, now the DW sees it as an item to fixed.

My plan for the day it gets too bad is to replace it with a strip that can change colors and brightness.

I bought my RV used and it was 1.5 years old and the lights were out. The RV lot put new ones on that failed within a couple uses. I have yet to replace them. I have seen some YouTube videos on them so may just get some and do it myself.

About 1/2 of the string has failed after 6 or so uses. Failed under warranty, but was not worth the 250 mile round trip to the dealer. I'll replace it "someday".

we have a 2014 3100SS, have the same issue, the light strip starting failing in the 2nd season.

Goots - what did you install & of course where did you purchase it?

Replaced the whole strip and had it hard wired to the existing wire. Brand name Diamond Daylight White 16' LED Strip Light Kit. Install by local RV Shop, I just had a knee replacement so the shop did it for me. Lights cost $90.00 but worth it much more bright light then the original ones. 🖒👀🖒
