    Outside led lights

    Has anyone had to replace their external led lights? Mine stopped working after replacing the short awning with one that now will actually do some good. I have 12v at the wires but no lights. I will be contacting Lippert and GD to see what my options are.

    Boomer--would not seem you need to replace the lights--there may be a loose or "break" in the wiring or maybe switch. Hopefully a member here with electrical expertise will chime in.

    Did you replace just the awning fabric or the entire or parts of the awning structure ? Joe (nguyenbio) and I want to make the change from the 6' to 8' awning. I have been in contact with Micah Staley (Reflection product line GM) and he said it was not just a matter of replacing the awning fabric and is working on a different option.

    Hi Horst,

    Any chance that you got the wires reversed ? LEDs are polarity sensitive.

    I replaced the entire awning structure! As it turned out, Lippert sent me an awning system that was seven inches shorter in width. I ended up putting the new canvas on the old roller, then put the arms on and walked the whole thing in I threaded while my buddies walked it along the trailer. I was only able to reuse the original mounting holes at least he top. Had to caulk the original rivet holes and drill new ones for the arms. Took use about 3.5 hrs. As I said in my op I have 12v at the wires at the LEDs but no lights. Rob might have a good point, I will check the polarity later. My wife reminded me that I had checked the polarity when we first encountered the issue, but I checked again and no luck.

    Hi Horst, Marlene & Jack (@Boomer),

    Pull the control panel. Locate and follow the wire from the awning LED light switch... There is a 2-amp fuse in the power supply line.

    Hi Horst,
    If you have 12V at the awning, that goes on and off with the switch, you probably don't need to go looking for the fuse.

    Hi all,
    Thanks for the help! I received the new light string and got them installed Saturday. All works great now. The length of the new awning is perfect.

    Dan,
    I just took my trailer back to storage! But let me say that the extra 2' makes a huge difference. Being an engineer, I went about it very methodically. The only place I had a problem was the side to side (width), the awning and roller that was sent was 7" shorter. As I said earlier, I used the original awning roller with the new canvas. Nobody can tell the difference. The other major advantage is that the pitch can now be adjusted to be of use. I would highly recommend the change.
