Jayco LED under the Awning

For you guys that have LED lights under the Awning from the factory. Check it closely to see if you have some lights turning yellowish. I had mine replaced once already under warrenty. The LED are changing color again. If you push the LED in, it changes to white again, then slowly back to yellowish ???? Any idea what kinda BUG I'm dealing with?? I dont want to take it in again.

I have not noticed anything with mine. What year and model do you have? How long did it take for you to see this? Thanks.

Yea I don't no what causes this problem but my dealer just replaced mine for the same reason. If mine fail again outside of warranty I will just take them off and add a set of the multi color led lights from Ebay. My kids like those better any ways .

I have a 2014 197 Jay Feather ultra that I got new in July. It is a great camper so far except the LED issue and the shower with no surround. I'm sure this LED issue is wider,,,,,but we are not looking. Guys look at your LED closely.

The socket for your light was not made properly. With vibration from the road it forces out the LED. I have one fixture that does this and just swapped it out.

I have seen it some on my 2015 338 rets awning lights but when you look at them a certain way they still look white. I am thinking about adding a dimmer to mine because at night time they are almost too bright , I like ambient lighting but they are a lot brighter than my old hang on awning lights.

Remove the old light fixture and install a new one... if you can use a screwdriver and tell the +black from the -white wire you can do this.

If you're talking about the LED light strips then I have seen this as well. For as nice as LED strip lighting is, it appears to lack in ruggedness. I have two sets installed under my awning and on the awning bar and recently lost one of the small sections to yellowing and fading. If i push on the one LED they come back but then fade out again. I have just left it be since the rest of the strip is still working but it does take away from the look. I don't believe there is any real fix other than to replace the lights and hope the next strip is more reliable. For me it comes down to how much time I want to spend maintaining them. I'm a fan of the lighting but can see when others decide to simply stay with a portable lantern.

I have had the same problem on my 2014 29KS Motor Home. I have a number of LED's on my awning that are doing the same thing. Some of them get better the longer the lights have been on. I agree with the previous post, not worth keeping up with.
