I'm having the same issue on a 1.5 year old Eagle. I do live in central Texas, but we have had a reasonably mild summer for us, and my trailer stays under a three sided overhang all season. No sun hits the trailer unless we are camping. I'm having a hard time believing it's the heat issue. It twisted mine so hard it broke the led strip and half of the lights quit working. Taking it in for repair soon.

Have not had any problems, and we've had several weeks of 95-98 degree heat. But my Jay Flight has aluminum siding. Don't know if that makes any difference.

Are all those who've had problems have fiberglass sides?

We have a 2014 Eagle 5th wheel and it has set under the extremely hot Georgia sun the past two years. Have not had any problems with the led strips. Just put up a shed so hopefully we want have any problems.

We had one strip replaced last fall and the dealer just called and we are going to get the other one replaced as it is starting to come loose. 2014 Eagle Premier

you can use More sticky double-sided adhesive tape,and i think VHB tape is better than 200lse tape , for those 5050 sk9822 led strip ,use ip68 silicone tube with Glue is better than IP65 silicone glue
