    Second awning light

    When we bought our 380TH we were told that the second awning (not the rear) had lights like the main awning. On the panel in the garage there is a place for a light switch, but no switch. I had the trailer at the dealer to replace some furniture and told him to look at the awning light while it was there. I had heard from a Tech that there was a SNAFU at the factory and all that was needed was to install the switch and connect the wiring that was there for the light.
    I picked my unit up today and the service guy told me it doesn't even have the light in the awning, hence no switch on the panel. he contacted Grand Designs and they had no answer, but the model on the floor which we saw had the awning light.
    Does anyone have this awning light on their 380TH. Want to get some input from owners before I contact GD Customer Service?
    Thanks

    I've delivered several 380's to customers, and none of them had the LED lights in the 2nd awning.

    This was discussed on a previous thread Garage Side Awning 380TH to which Grand Design replied. if you would like to read it I have included the link.

    Your welcome...though I too wish they would start putting the second set of LED lights on the back owning. It would be so nice. I read somewheres too that you can go on carefree website (maker of our awnings) and order the LED lights that come on the unit. Maybe you could retro fit it in your unit. I'm thinking if doing this.

    I got the carefree lights for the second awning, but have not had the time to install the yet. Got them from PPL motor home. I think they were around 80 bucks. Looks like running the wire may be fun!

    Make sure you take lots of pictures when you do!

    X2. If you can take a lot of pictures while doing it so that we (who are afraid to take the unknown plung) can do iron our units. That will be great.

    But I must say @Jeff that You and I think about doing the same things, you just aren't as afraid of doing them as I am.

    this is really a weird topic to be discussing.. i mean ever other "toyhauler" manufacturer is including these all over the rig and we don't get one because of a hundred bucks? We all have dummy switches but what about power and wiring to the switch? I am going to patiently wait for thomspk to install this and see how easy this will be...
