I like TricLEDS.com for all of my LEDs.
They're not an RV supplier; but they DO sell quality merchandise.

I think you mean this website:
https://www.tricledusa.com/

Except that it looks like they specialize in LED packages for trikes. Not much on that site for replacing an LED strip on an awning.

We used https://hitlights.com/ for our 2016 ACE. It was about $12.00 for a full awning strip(with a little left over).

That's where I go for the lighting on my Spyder...
But if you were to give them a call (Speak to Cindy!): I'm sure that they can find something for your needs.

I replaced my strip from a company called Carefree of Colorado and was a very simple and easy job. Google Carefree of Colorado LED Awning Lights and scroll down to the YouTube video that shows how to replace the strip (LED replacement 2015). The light strip comes on a roll and connects to the existing plug. You cut off the excess between the led lights (a few inches) and it works great.
As I mentioned earlier, it was very easy to replace and now all my lights work where I had many that were burned out previously.

Related question

For those of us who don't have an LED lighted awning but would like to, can you tell me how they get their power?

Get their power from the 12V house battery/batteries.

" Get their power from the 12V house battery/batteries. "

But how exactly? I can see how you'd stick a strip of LED's to the roller. But then, how does the 12v get to the strip? When mine was unrolled, I noticed a quick disconnect power connector. Assume that's the 12V that could be tapped. Is that 12V always hot? What about a switch?

Awning led strip lights

Not familiar with your MH but if it had awning lights originally or has an electrical connection, there should be an “awning” light switch in the vicinity of your interior lights, porch light and awning extend/retract switch. This would then provide the 12V for the awning LED lights.

Boogey lights are a good choice

I have used Boogey lights on two other RVs with good success. They are easy to work with and very responsive customer service. Nice heavy duty lights too, not like the cheaper ones that burn out.
