Question Exterior LED lights beneath awning

We just completed our first RV trip in our new Thor 2020 Quantum Class C Motorcoach. Our trip covered visiting 16 states and one Canadian Province and lasted 102 days. 3 days before we arrived home the led lights under the awning stopped working. We tried to find information among our manuals and documents that came with the unit but to no avail. Has anyone had this problem? How did you solve it.

First - WELCOME to the forums!

If you remove the switch that controls the lights, you may find that there is an inline fuse in the switch's wiring tucked into the wall cavity. Several folks here have had the same problem.

Please let us know the outcome.

I have a 2020 Quantum as well. Two weeks after getting it I had the same problem. Found the inline fuse behind the switch that turns the lights on. Lights still blow the fuse so haven't solved that problem yet. I have a leak behind the awning that drips down over the LED strip so maybe they got damaged from that.

What did you find that caused your problem?

I had the same issue. The fuse was popped from water infiltrating the light strip. I could see where it shorted and burned out. I tried repairing them, but no joy. I ended up buying a water proof led strip of Amazon. Now it's on remote with as many color combinations as you can imagine. BTW, the replacement lights were available from the awning manufacture, but they would have been close to 100 bucks. Ours were about $30.

Half of my awning led lights quit working so I bought a 16.5' replacement on Amazon that is waterproof. In changing it I forgot to turn off the switch. After wiring in the new one I found the switch on and knew that I blew a fuse. I started looking for it in the panels and books but then thought of the forum. You are correct, there is a 2 amp fuse behind the switch. Thanks for sharing with us.

Find the lead that runs ou to them, and see if it has power when the switch is on.
If you have peer: replace the light strip.
If you don't: start looking for fuses, broken or shorted lines, or popped circuit breakers.
