LED Awning Lights

Are LED awning lights standard on Signature Ultra Lite awnings? Saw that they were on the awnings on the units displayed at the Hershey RV show in September so I'm just wondering if they are standard or option or maybe just something included for the RV show?

Thanks.

Think they are standard now. Came on my 2014 8289ws. I also have the diamond pkg but pretty sure the non diamond ones i looked at on the lot had them too.

They're standard on the 2014 Mini Lites as well, so it's probably on all of them. I hope others are having better luck with them. Someone posted not too long ago with the same trailer as me with several lights already out and I just lost five of mine after it's second outing.

I have them on my 2604WS (TT). And, as others, I've lost about 3 or 4 already. I called to RVWholesalers warranty department and Laurie asked for the awning model number to begin the claim. I'll live with a few out before I'll have someone change out the entire awning. At night, they're so bright, a few more out may be an improvement .
Also, all my interior lights are LEDs (except for the dinette fixture and table lamp).

The nicest part about having them standard now (they came on my 2014 8282ws) is you at least have them pre-wired when they go bad. The light strip is very inexpensive (EBay) when it does go bad, and far less painful then going through a warranty claim; IMO.

Joe, would you happen to have a model# or link to the strips (for future reference)?

This is one of many listings. You can get them with changing colors as well.

Ok... So how do you know which ones will fit our current LED strip? I have a Rockwood 2306... We definitely want to switch to an amber type color next summer to combat the bugs. They LOVE the bright white.

All the ones I looked at said you could cut them to size every two or three lights depending on the strip.
