Awning lights

I have lights on the roll of the awning, they worked great the first 2 years now only 1 or 2 work. Anyone else have this problem?

If your referring to the led lights on a roll, I have them on mine. Been about a year now and working well. I installed mine under the aluminum rail so they don't move with the awning. I hot melt glued them on and because of where they are located, they are protected by the awning when it is closed or open. Maybe mine aren't old enough to have failed. But at about $25 for everything, I can probably afford to buy new ones every couple years .

I would like to do that to my Outback but am not sure where to get the power from. Any idea?

You just gotta look at what's close you can work with. Our kitchen is on the awning side and it has 12 volts to the vent hood. That would be a source. The rolls are all 12 volt with a 120 volt adapter. There's also 12 volts in a light under one of the cabinets and a 120 volt plug. A wire can be fished up the wall from that into a cabinet then add a plug for the adapter and send the power out the wall as high as you can.

Thanks. I will take a look at that.

Awning lights

TT is 2013 Crossroads Zinger 33FK. The lights came with the unit installed in the awning roll. I suspect that while the awning is in water gets into the light string and caused the problem, they are LED and look nice at night when they work. I think I will replace them with a string attached to trailer wall under the awning as they are cheaper and will be protected.
