Once the warranty expires, however, I'll never replaced a failed fixture with the same type. Instead I'll go with something that uses replaceable LED bulbs.

How many people does it take to replace a warranted Jayco LED light bulb? Apparently it can't be done.
Same here - I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I can't simply replace the bulb....

I think it's like buying an LED bulb for a lamp at home. The driver is built into the base, so you're really buying both.

I get that - I have some LED's around the house but I don't have to replace the entire fixture when they stop working. There are LED fixtures available for RV's that work like you'd expect them too - with bulbs you can replace without removing and re-wiring the fixture.

I guess it's either these are the absolute cheapest fixtures they could find or they are trying to keep the service bays full. Fortunately I'm only about 10 minutes away from my dealer. Not such a great deal if you have to tow an hour or two just to get a light bulb replaced.
