Brake light out

I have a Columbus 320RS by Palomino and the LED brake light is already out. I don't want to pay Camping World $130 to change out the lighting unit, is there a way to fix it myself? Appreciate any input.

Led lights normally don't just "go out" I think you may have another issue.
But it's "possible"

Have all the lights gone out, brake and running? If yes I would say you lost the ground to the unit.

Check your 7 pin connector first. Mine seems to oxidize all the time so some light doesn't work. Just clean the connectors on the trailer and see if that works.

If it's only one light then the 7 pin wouldn't be the issue.

True. I wasn't clear that it was only one light and it's an easy thing to check and fix before spending the money.

No doubt!
No idea is a bad idea!
Unless of course it costs "me" money!

It is just the brake light that is out. Is there a fix other than replacing entire light unit?

If it's actually the led circuit board, no.
As asked earlier do the tailights work?

"normally" individual leds will start to go out but usually never all of them at once.
I'm leaning toward a wiring issue.
