Simple fix like Bulletbob describes. They simply connected wires wrong to the switches, and are feeding 12 volt to the awning light switch from the interior light switch rather from a clean B+ fed. Easy access by popping of the switch cover and removing a few screws; then pulling out the wires to gain access.

There have been a lot of failures of the LED strips put on trailer for a year or so. What you describe is how they start to fail. Lower voltage can make this look worse so maybe the new connection you made doesn't have as much power. Also could just be bad timing and this was about to happen anyway. Search this forum for LED awning strips and you should find many threads about the failing lights.
