FWIW I am not surprised the fuse did not pop. LED's use less power but run at a lower voltage than the incandescent bulb they replace. Because of the difference in power there is either some kind of current limiter or a current limited switching regulator circuit. Either way there is a lot of "magic smoke" bottled up in there. That part of the circuitry may dissipate more power than the LED. If something fails one can release a lot of that smoke without drawing a lot more current than the bulb would have. That is what it sounds like happened. If so I would not worry about the wires.

You might want to check the LED specs (may be 12V DC +- 1VDC) ;
Then check your motorhome DC voltage 'with engine running'.
You might find the motorhome is putting out 14.5 V DC and the LED is rated for max of 13V DC. This would cause the overheating you are seeing.
I think that you seeing burnt spots on the 2 LEDs you checked is an indication that the wrong LEDs are installed - if so, go back and install the stock lights for safety sakes.

I have have a leaking problem and burnt out top clearance lights with my 2006 Select. I found replacement lights on Amazon for a good price. I also removed them all and sealed with marine silicon sealant. No problems since.

Oh, no! Even an old mechanical guy knows what happens when you let the smoke escape from electrical components!

Water everywhere I guess. After driving in some heavy rain....I noticed one of my front signal/head lights looked odd. I pulled it apart and found the amber signal compartment half full of water. I wasn't sure how you could re seal so drilled a couple of drain holes in the back at the bottom. Re-assembled and have had no problems since. I guess as these age - some of tight seals, etc. have a tendency to leak.

I had the same issue with my driver's side amber turn signal light. Took it off and hole in the back? Why I don't know. Referenced the part number on Google and found it to be a Toyota turn signal. Bought at local NAPA. Not cheap. Had to file to get fit a little better. If you need the part # & price let me know & I'll look up invoice.

Thanks - so far everything OK. If I need the part number - I will get to you. To bad we don't have website to accumulate all of this information on one data base......we could just post part numbers for models and the information would not get "lost".

Are you sure it wasn't "half empty"?

Good thought! The bottom half is full....not the top half. My buddies always want one more 1/2 beer....but they always want the top half.
