    LED Lighting

    Anybody else have problems with all of the overhead LED lighting going on and off? I think the LEDs get hot then shutoff then come back on again. Also have a problem with the LEDs themselves coming out where the two wires go into the socket. Any ideas? Is Grand design aware of these issues?

    The only issue we've had with LED lights in our 369 is a bad fixture which GD replaced and I installed. I did have one that didn't work shortly after we took delivery but discovered the "bulb" simply was not plugged in all the way. If you have a whole bank of them going on and off intermittently, that sounds like a bigger problem. Possibly faulty wiring or a bad switch. LEDs generate very little heat so I don't think overheating would be the issue.

    Randy and Peggy, did service give you any indication of what was wrong? Just a bad batch of lights?
    I'm glad they replaced them for you. That's what makes GD Service second to none!

    Renee, They just stated that they had issues with the Mfg'r and would send me all new LED's. I think it is a new designed LED. And yes, that is Exceptional Service and why GD will continue to be the best %th Wheel Mfg'r out there!!

    We just got back from a 4000 mile road trip. We had three LED's come loose or completely wiggle out of their socket
