Awning strip lights not working but. . .

Hi all,

So last year my awning was removed to do repair work from a leak, 2018 212 qb. When we opened the awning last summer, we found a piece of metal but I couldnít find where it was from but I see now it was a loose cover for wires from awning and lights etc. at the top. The lights and outlet worked last year.

So first trip out this weekend, the strip of lights under awning donít go on and outlet beside bed on same side doesnít work. These are on same fuse as interior lights which do work. Awning on separate switch works as well. So Iím assuming not a fuse problem.

1) would outlet be wired on same as awning lights?
2) would this be that a wire broke and would I be able to fix this myself?
3) should I call an RV repair person? I can change light fixtures in my house but thatís about my electrical experience

Thanks for all the great knowledge and advice here?

When we were purchasing our camper, the fella at the shop noticed that the awning LED light strip wouldn't come on with the switch. He said he couldn't figure it out so he just unplugged the strip and put another LED strip over the old one, and wal-laa, it works. So, none knows why the original stopped working, but the light switch was fine.

These units can be wired so weirdly, it's possible there is an outlet associated with the awning light.

The outlet is 120V, and the LED lights are 12V--not connected in any way.

The two tt I've had the awning led lights seam to go bad. a few here and there. They dont seem to last. Just cheap light strips or not a good design for the environment .

Thanks for the correction. Didn't occur to me.

Strip lights not working

Ok thanks for that info. I thought they might be connected since same fuse and both quit working at same time. Clearly I should call a professional.

I replaced one LED strip on the nose of my unit. Never done awning strips before so not sure. I could bet they're wired up the same. Eyebrow lights and awning lights are 12V. I'm sure there's a simple straight-forward way of doing it. I'd search YT and familiarize myself with how they are wired.
