Ceiling Lights

Before I get in touch with FR and try to find a part number, etc., does anyone out there have information on the manufacturer and model number for the recessed LED lights in the Legacy? I know there are two different sizes used (smaller ones under the TV in the bedroom and over the counter in the rear bath, larger ones everywhere else. After our first extended trip, it seems all of the fixtures are starting to self destruct. I figured out how to get the lens off (just a quarter turn to unlock it) and when I check them, none of the fixtures appear to have all of the LED's inside lit up. Each one is a little different, with varying numbers of LED's actually emitting light. Some are very bright (individual LED's), some not so much. On some of them, if I tap or lightly touch the LED's themselves, they will light or flash. On a lot of them, the LED's simply disintegrate and fall completely off the assembly. I unscrewed the reflector device thinking it might be some sort of replaceable bulb but it looks like the entire fixture is a single assembly and has to be totally replaced. Still under warranty, so I may just need to go back to the dealer and have them replaced but thought I'd give it a shot myself to save the hassle. Thoughts or suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Just a follow up to this subject in case anyone else is having issues with these lights. Talked with Isaac at FR and replacement fixtures (the entire fixture) can be purchased for about $12 each. Not bad pricing. They did gave a shipment of bad fixtures and it us always possible some of the bad units could be in the newer coaches. To find out if you gave the bad fixtures, remove the glass lens, then remove the mounting screws in the flange and slip the fixture down out of the ceiling. Look for a date code on the back of the fixture. The bad units will indicate a code of 1412, meaning December 2014. If you gave these, your dealer will have to request replacement units from FR (can't do it yourself). Hope this helps someone. I'm planning on checking mine tomorrow and will update if I find any if the bad ones.
