I have not had problems with my led lights yet/Just bought my 5th wheel back in Sept of last year. I have ordered 20 rolls of LED spools from this company mostly for accent lighting and they are used nightly 7 days a week. All worked great. I also used a spool for bed lighting and tool box lighting for my truck. Makes it easy to hook up trailer in dark. The ones you want are the waterproof led strips. There "SHOULD" be 12V power up there were you could replace strip and use existing remote. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Waterproof-W...item3a9e939150

If you want color changing you can buy these. Select waterproof 5050 waterproof strip and also add IR remote. The remote will let you change colors or scroll/strobe colors and turn off and on.

Just a note that Jayco may use 3528 LEDs and not 5050 which are brighter. They are called SMD 5050 because the dimensions of the chips are 50mm x 50mm. These LED chips have 3 LED chips in one housing (sometimes called tri-chips), and are a lot brighter than 3528 LED chips. They are used when you need high illumination for your project area. Theoretically, SMD 5050 LEDs can offer a light output 3 times that of the 3528 strips, and therefore the 5050 LED is well suited for lighting up areas that may be subject to high levels of ambient light. Though they produce more heat, it is still drastically lower than other lighting options. The 5050's are different from the 3528 LEDs in that 5050s can combine the three different chips to inside the housing to create millions of color variations. The 3528 SMD led strips come in one color only.

The dealer finally sent out a technician last week to replace the LED light strip. He did a "cob job" , meaning he did not pull back the caulking on the awning frame to use the electrical connections, just snipped the wires and spliced them into the new strip then wrapped it with electrical tape. I will have to buy a new strip and install it myself.

I have come to the conclusion that most RV service technicians have very limited mechanical ability, are poorly trained, and are pretty much incompetent.
