Unhappy LED Lighting Failures

We have a 2015 Forest River Silverback 33 IK 5th wheel. We have replaced 18 of the flush mounted LED lights (5 diode) in our trailer since 2015. Going thru the dealer, these lighting units are approximately C$30. We have found less expensive units thru etrailer. Has anyone else suffered such an expensive issue? Can anyone advise on why these lights keep failing?

Never heard of that before, that's a little excessive to me, have you ever checked your voltage? That's about all it could be or a loose fixture socket, leds should have a life span of like 10,000 hours. Sorry can't be of more help.
