Could I trouble you for the part number of your old and new tail lights if they are handy?

Sounds like the next mod...

Hoglou,,I had the same problem with my Dometic LEDs..
New 2014 3050 and within 8 mos those lights warped up like a twisty snake in the track. My RV was parked outside all last year so I'd assume the hot summer days created quite a bit of heat next to that rolled up black awning.
I took it in for warranty replacement, that light fixture is a long plastic channel that slides into the track, and upon sliding the new one in it fillet itself and was ruined. A month or so later back at the shop they installed another one, but a few months later I could see it bulging out of the channel in one spot.
I'll leave it there until it warps or fails again then I'm going with the DIY light strips everyone's talking about.

The Dometic channel plastic strip is a poor design and fails too quickly IMO. Oh, but they replaced that wrinkled awning as well once the service department saw how bad it looked. If anything, I'm just happy that I got my awning all straightened outClick image for larger version

2014 3170 ford. LEDs started to fail 3 months after purchase. Waiting on dealer to call when they come in. That was 14 months ago. Guess they are still back ordered. Now, not enough LEDS left to provide light. I can live without, DW fusses. I guess I will look at this again, sometime. I like it dark anyway. Just me.

I have a 2013 3010 that did not come with factory installed awning LEDs. After seeing prices over $100 for after market RV LEDs my wife searched for water proof LEDs and found the same product for about $25. I installed them on the awning tube. I then found an extension cord that plugs directly into the LED strip and the controller so the controller and power cord are under the awning. After two years have only lost a couple single LEDs.

You still got the yeti?

AS I posted earlier, They started failing after 2nd month, the unit is now 2 years,4 month old. I think I still have about 40% left. As I sit and see one wink out without a whimper, I think, another one gone. I am still waiting for dealers phone call. I guess the DW will insist on replacing them but for now, enjoy just watching them die one by one.
Have you given any thought to using the 12volt feed for something else and ditching the lights?
