2018 Wildwood X-lites Awning LED Strips

I know on the previous years of the XLite FR was installing the color change led strips from the factory, which used the remote you could change colors and such with. Does anyone have a 2018 and can confirm if they are solid white now? Dealer told me they quit using the colored and are just white now. Its not a big deal, if they are white, I will end up swapping them out myself later. Thanks

On forest river's website, their 2017 and I think 2016 models showed color changing on their "Wildwood X-Lite ShowStopper" package for 2017. In addition, most of the dealer video's I watched on youtube, plus my local dealer all indicated they had color on the previous years. So indeed I am guessing this particular model was coming with color, was just wanting to see if it still did or not.

My 2015 were all white. I saw no reason for changing colors anyway so it wasn't a big deal.

Just a warning on the colour changing ones if you do go that route. When I first installed mine, I let my daughter pick the colour for our first night. Turns out "exact same shade as a bug zapper" purple is not a good choice for a light on the side of the trailer.

I have a 17 and it only has the white lite. I did not receive a remote for color lighting.

My 2016 and 2017 both had the colored lights. I would have preferred to have plain while.

LED strips

We have a 2018 Cruise Lite 272RBXL and have color changing lights with a remote. Makes a big difference whether we are with Packer fans or Bear fans.😊
