You mounted yours in the awning roller right?
Like you mentioned, I wonder if the they failed due to always staying wet. I'm not my second year and it's working so far with no issues. I mounted mine on the wall under the awning mount in an enclosure. It stays mostly dry and when it fails, should be easy to replace.
