Take a couple photos of the light with cover removed and post here.
Maybe we can offer better/more relevant advice.

I'm thinking they can be replaced without soldering! There are things called
wire nuts that will work fine for small low power items like LED lights!

Post a couple photos and we'll talk!

The replacement that I received had two butt connectors - cut old light off, strip ends of the wires and then crimp the connectors to join the wires. Maybe 3 minutes to complete one light.

that's the type of light I have that is out currently at 3 1/2. the 1/2 is one in the kitchen which comes on if it feels like it. I didn't know how to post pic here. it is connected by two wires coming from the top.

I opened all covers that were out and the led's are all out on the circuit board. I haven't found out yet how to replace them, went to CW and they didn't have that type board. The dealer is like 2 1/2 hr drive from here and would be a lot to take my SB there just to replace 3 lights.

hope someone knows ans to this.

Just contact Forest River - they will replace the whole module white cover and all - with 2 wires coming out of the back - just cut the old one out and wire crimp/tie into the existing wires. These are supposed to have a "life time warranty'...

Our led over the heSd of the bead would go out every time we arrived somewhere! Low and behold our rv service man found when the slide would go in or out it pinched the wire and shorted it out. They fixed it and we haven't had a problem since!!

hmm wonder if thats what happened to us? couldnt find out who at FR to call for the led problem as their website says to call the dealer. so we are looking when we can take time off to take our 5th wheel to the dealer as its about 2 hr drive, and see how long it will take them to fix, hopefully it will be one day so we can leave same day.
