So, I'm at the point where I want to pull my light strip off and replace. I was looking at it today. Appears the light strip is inside of a track. Dors the track stay put and you pull the light strip out?

Exactly the same issues with mine. I'm on my third set under warranty, and they are still burning out. They keep replacing junk with more junk. Mine is a 2013 Surveyor.

Factory junk... no excuse for sourcing and using this. FR please join the modern puchasing procurment world. Why are we not hearing about replacement parts being sent to customers with multiple failures? Six sigma, its not that hard....

fixed

Well durn't I got off the lazyboy and fixed it. Took about 45 minutes which includes geting the little giant out. Used the amozon cheapos, two connector (PN2-7B), and one sore thumb pushing the new leds in to the tray. The clip at the and of the track will pop out to finish the install.

I have had the new leds for a while so I do not remember the cost, as I bought 3 last year they must have been cheap.

Open the awning 10 inches.
Pull the wire up from the front awning pole top.
I tied a string on the wire while I worked on it to keep from having to "go fish'en".
Unconnect and remove old leds.
Wipe the track with some rubbing alcohol.
Install the new male connectors on the new leds (don't forget the rub cover reinstall)
Make your connection and test the lights.
Begin on the install from the front end and peel the tape off the led as you seat it the tray (begin sore thumb process).
At the end of the last 6 inches measure and cut at the scissor mark.
Mine was about 1/16 over, perfect.
Pull off the end cap, add a little silicone to the end of your cut (sorry that is how I am).
Re install end cap.
Had 23"" to cut off (not counting the wire leads on the end)

Look for next project.
