LED lights on awning

I have a 2013 Zinger with awning lights but they gave out this year and only about 1/10th of them work on the 20 foot awning. They will be on warranty but instead of taking the unit in can I replace them myself without too much trouble?
Thanks in advance for any help

Sure, just look on internet sales like, ebay, amazon, etc for 12 volt LED light tape. Remove the old, clean and install new lights. If it does not work wired one way reverse polarity and you should be fine.

I'm not sure what type of lighting you have but I bought a 16.5 foot of Solar powered Xmas lights.
They are really brite and has a remote control for different patterns.
I also found this site, superbrightleds.com They have a ton of different lights,

Like RV Wizard says look on eBay or Amazon.

LED light strips are available in 5 meter (16.4 ft) lengths with or without 12V power supply (required only if you want to plug into 120V, not required if hooking lights directly up to 12V). Light strips can be cut for shorter lengths or combined for longer lengths. The strips are also available as all cool white, all warm white, RGB color changing or a combination of warm white or cool white and color changing. Color changing and combinations usually come with a remote to set various color combinations and patterns.

Make sure you look for waterproof light strips either IP65 (water spray resistant) or IP67 (submersible up to 1 meter).

Try M4products.com. Steve there will give you excellent customer service and advice. I just re placed all of the lights in my 5er with LEDs. Prices are also very competitive.

Why not abandon the 'junk' that an RV manufacturer supplies and just go to Home Depot or similar and purchase some clear or colored Christmas lights for 6-8 bucks and use them. Yes, you will need a few minutes to install and take them off, but they are inexpensive and a lot more robust then the Amazon taped on lights which, after buying a couple lengths for other uses, need more and better tape anyhow.
