LED light problem

I have an ACE 29.2 2017, and one of the led lights over the dinette flickers and goes out at times. I took the cover off and could not figure out how to remove the led lighting. It is a flat configuration with multiple little led lights. Any help is greatly appreciated. There are two lights over the dinette and only one has the problem.

If they are like the led lights i had in our XTE, you have to replace the entire light fixture.

That wouldn't surprise me. I tried everything to get it out. I didn't even see a way to get the whole fixture out, but I admit I really didn't look hard at that.

On mine, after you take the lens cover off there were either two or three screws holding the fixture in the ceiling. Take those out and then I had to cut the wires and splice the wires into the new fixture.

LED Fixture, where to purchase?

Hi, I have a 2016 Outlaw, which probably has those same LED fixtures, I need to replace one of them but I can't find a place that sells a replacement.



Thanks
Jim

Hi TripleWide... thanks for the reply but my lights are different than those, this is what it looks like after you take off the cover... Its approx 3" in diameter and is held up to the ceiling with 3 screws... It says "promem rev 3" on it..

Thanks for the replies, the one's on etrailer are a bit smaller, I will have to look on ebay if I actually need a replacement, but I decided that I might be able to fix the issue and I pulled the fixture.... Found the issue... Funny how they use different colored wires to indicate polarity (and then wire them up wrong)...

Success! Easier than having to find a replacement.

I took the easy way out, while my ACE is in for maintenance I told them to fix my light while they had the unit there.

Easy way to do it, if you have a good repair facility in your area.

I had to drive it to the neighboring state, only a little over an hour away. I lucked out and got in just before they got busy, because they won't work on my rig if they are busy because I didn't buy it there. I'm waiting for the ordered replacement light to come in. I also asked them to fix the passenger side sliding window as the lock doesn't work properly. Damn list just keeps growing!
