The awning light are going out one by one. The 2014 sunseeker 3170 led light string mounted. I through that led was suppose to last a long time. This will be the fourth time that I used the motor home. Is anyone else have this problem?

They do last a very long time. Check for water intrusion.

Mine started going out 2 months after I bought it new from dealer. Mine are Dometic, and I contacted a local Dometic authorized repair dealer near my house instead of the dealer where I bought the unit which is 3 hours away. They agreed to get me the new strip under warranty and allow me to install it myself. Not too difficult, I had to unsolder the old leads and solder on the new strip, then I put shrink tubing over solder joints. Running the new strip into the track was the trickiest part. I had to carefully push it in bit by bit, you can't slide it in. Turned out great. I did notice that the replacement strip was built thicker and heavier than the original. I did the repair last October, still not a single light out.
