Starcraft 289bhs front LEDs

I have a '16 289bhs. On the front of the trailer are (6) LED lights, three on each side. All (6) worked when new, but now only the bottom one on each side works. Photos attached. Curious why the top two on each side have gone out, but the bottom remain operable. Different fuse/wiring?

Anyone ever have this issue and have any troubleshooting advice?

Thanks

It is likely that the LEDs have simply failed. Did all 4 stop working at the same time, or did they fail individually over time?

There are good LEDs and cheap LEDs and unfortunately, like a lot of things on mass produced trailers, they tend to install the cheaper ones.

Can you pop one out and measure the voltage at the leads?

They all went out at once. Not sure if I can pop one out or not, as it looks like they’re glued in.

Yea, it's just such a hassle to take it to the dealer for them to look at then leave it there or bring it back, etc. for (what I believe) is a minor issue.

I don't know about the rest of the dealers but I have been able to schedule an appointment with my dealer for minor stuff, bring it in, and they do the repairs while I wait. It is 140 miles round trip and I have left it for major work for a couple weeks after taking a lightning strike You might check and see if they will do that. The lighting issue should not take long to trouble shoot and repair.
