LED Awning Lights

LED awning lights not working.

Having done a search on the site for this topic I have a question that I could not find an answer for.

I know there is a breaker for the power roller and it is not tripped and the awning rolls in and out with no problem. Is there a fuse for the built in/factory installed LED awning lights?

The switch appears to be working as it lights up to let you know it is on. I don't have a tester or ladder with me, so I'm looking to explore other possibilities before going that route.

Thanks in advance,

Fred

On my coach there's a 5 amp fuse located in a bundle of wires just inside the entrance door. Certainly don't know if your rig is the same but look for the wire bundle that's close to the awning control (sometimes a module that has an imbedded fuse).

I've replaced the wiring on my lights - the connections were poorly done and the wiring is very fragile. If a fuse replacement doesn't work take a look at the wiring.

Much appreciated Steve, I think that would be behind the magazine rack on our coach; I'll check there.

I didn't find an inline fuse so I borrowed a ladder. What I found was the wire where it exits the awning was pinched between the canvas and the roller and had broken. For the time being I cut the wire and spliced it with connectors just to have the light working. Eventually I'll replace the entire length of wire.

Thanks for the update. I've noticed the wires on mine look to be pretty frail, and also close to the roller. Could happen to anyone.

We had the same problem and battled it till we gave up. Our problem was that no matter what we tried the wire that goes into the coach wall at the front edge of the awning kept breaking.
It had to do with the roller. We gave up and attached an LED strip the full length of the awning snugged up under the awning case. Works great! Uses the same connection the other one did. Saved our sanity!

AN RV tech said my fuze was behind the awning light switch.

Thanks for the info. I've seen other coaches with the LED light on the wall; maybe for the same reason. I'm curios how you ran the power wire into the coach and if you were able to use the original switch?
