I believe they are just crappy lights! Here is one thread of others having the exact problem: Replacing LED awning lights
. A quick search turned up several threads discussing the same. I was merely asking if the after market system are of better quality than the factory installed units. (Which I have hardly even turned on let alone used.) BTW A few years back I spent over $60 on a LED trouble light that lasted two years tops. The technology is always improving, but you can still buy junk! Obviously FR buys junk in bulk quantities.
