Cedar creek is really good about sending replacement led lights at no charge.

Thanks Steve.

Ask them to send you new puck lights. If you are in warranty they should send you enough to redo the entire set so everything remains uniform.
Prolly cost them 10 lbucks

The OP's 2014 unit is probably not under warranty anymore. Cedar Creek is more than likely going to send the whole light. I had a light issue and they wanted me to send them pictures of the whole unit.....it took a few tries on their part before they finally sent me the correct unit. There are several different puck style light fixtures.

Good Luck.

We have/had the same lights in our 2015. Several of them have failed over the years, some when the trailer was under warranty and some after the warranty expired. Even when the company that manufactured them was in business getting them to send replacements was an ordeal to say the least. I didnít try Forest River. I ended up replacing most of ours with some that are slightly larger but also have a push button switch in the center of the light. I believe the picture that was provided is of a light that has an external switch as opposed to a switch on the fixture itself. I actually prefer the switch on the fixture itself as even when there are several lights controlled by one wall switch I can turn off individual lights if I want or have them all on and controlled by the wall switch but thatís just personal preference. The ones that I replaced them with I bought from the dealer where we purchased our rig. They couldnít get the originals either. I donít remember the name of the manufacturer of the replacements but they are a pretty generic item. If memory serves they were about $10.00 each and they are far superior to the originals. None of the replacements have failed.

Good luck.
