It seems the LEDís are only rated for 12 volts and the charging system in my 5th wheel can output upwards to 14 volts. This is according to Trent.
I contacted Salena Halsey (email@example.com) at Forest River and explained my situation. She then forwarded my info to Shawna Short (firstname.lastname@example.org). Shawna contacted me and asked me to count all my lights in the overhead and all the lights with push buttons. I counted a total of 27 LED lights.
Shawna then had 27 lights mailed to me pronto. Forest River is the best for standing behind their product.
I will attach pics of my defective lights. The pics are with the cover removed.
Thanks for the info. We had one push-button lamp fail and replaced under warranty. Now out of warranty, a non -push button ceiling lamp has started strobing while the two mounted next to it work normally.
I will contact Forest River and see if they'll help.
I was surprised to get a temperature reading of close to 200 degrees F from the lamp using an infrared temperature gun. I don't suppose the circuitry would last too long at that temperature.
Once hot, all of our push-button lamps are very difficult to turn off.
