Question Awning lighting

I have a 2021 Vista Cruiser 17RWD. The LED light strip under the awning has burned out and I need to replace the light strip. How do you remove the clear plastic tube that the light strip is in under the awning attached to the trailer wall?

The LED strip pulls out from the (wired) end of the plastic tube. Sometimes held by a screw on one end. You do not have to remove the awning, just open it all the way then look at the tube, it (should) be easy to see how it pulls out. While you are there, look at the connections, could just be bad wiring.

I would question weather the trip is burned out or you have a poor connection.
LED lights usually last a lot longer than a year unless maybe is they are left on ALL the time!!

So rude! Most RV's come with LED lights under the awning so what is the matter when someone wants things to work they way they were designed?

I would bet that yours in cheaply rigged when something breaks.

Just had to say it. Rude people need to get some counseling!!

Hey Warrant, Have to say I agree. I like to help where I can on this forum, but sometimes I wonder if it's worth it when people have other agendas. Glad you said something.

Camco is a good choice. I love using this light indoors and outdoors as it is UL-approved. Although I used it in my RV, you can hang the lights wherever you want. And one more thing I really like is it because it is quite light and can be carried around easily.

Areful is proud to introduce a high quality RGB LED string light. Help create a festive party atmosphere. The best thing about this string of lights is that it's not just designed for RV's. If you plan to use it to decorate the interior of your home, you can do that too.
