Scare Lights Out

I have a 2014 MicroLite 23LB with the LED strip lights just below the awning mount (aka Scare Lights). They have stopped working and I do not see any fuses blown. Has anyone encountered this before? Just want to see if there is an easy fix before I head out on a week trip to the beach.

Thanks!

I'm sure my terminology is off. There is a strip of LEDs mounted on the front of the TT just below the awning mount. The switch is labeled Scare Lights.

Hmm? I have a Rockwood 2014 2306, essentially the same trailer. My switch is not labeled scare, it says porch and it on the bottom row, second from the left. Anyway, I assume you checked the fuses. There will be a red light on if the fuse is blown. Otherwise I'd take the control panel off and look for a loose wire. I had one come loose in my unit.

You were on the right track! Turns out there was a loose wire on the connection at the front of the strip. Thank you!

I have a 2014 19FD and the led strip light on mine is called the scare light. My light has also stopped working , dealer has ordered the parts to repair it, fortunately it is a warranty fix.

We just purchased the 2015 21FBRS and ours are labeled scare lights as well. During the PDI the guy pretty much told us they wouldn't work for long. Although I like the look of them, I probably won't drag it back to the dealer when they go out.

***edited to add that I am waiting for someone to post an awesome modification for them because I know the creative minds on here will be at it soon! Lol!***
