Awning led strip.

Some of the lights are burnt out as you can hopefully see from the picture. Where would we get a replacement strip of leds? They are installed in a track on the side so they should be pretty easy to replace. Thanks.Click image for larger version

How new is your trailer. Still under warranty?

If you are under one year then talk to your dealer about warranty.

It's available thru a Dometic dealer
But when I checked it was pricey ($75). Mine did the same thing but I use them rarely so I haven't replaced them yet. If you need it I have the Dometic part # on my computer at home. I think it just sticks into the track at the bottom of the awning

Got a ladder? Take a look. Try pushing on either side of part that isn't lit....sometimes it'll fix it.

superbrightleds.com. Replace with the rgb(red green blue). They come with controller and remote. Select between colors and are dimmable.

There has been a major failure rate on these LED strips with many being replaced twice while in the warranty period. I had mine replaced once and now lights are starting to fail. I am a year out of warranty. I heard the strips weren't sealed properly and water getting in was the culprit. So if you keep them dry and actually light them up more it may dissipate the water and they will work better.
