THOR #23636
Awning Lights Not Working

Nw to the forum so thanks for the help in advance.

We have a 2020 Four Winds 24DS and our Led awning lights stopped working this week. We checked our build sheet on the Thor web page and identified a 2 amp fuse located behind the switch and replaced however lights still do not work.

Called Thor and they also saw the fuse however when this did not work they had me call Solera who provided the awning and light. We called and while waiting on hold we checked the Solera Manuals in our paperwork and found where it should have a resettable fuse/breaker provided by Solera. When Solera rep came on line they also saw the fuse/breaker discussed in manual but had no info on where to look or even where it was located on their product. They are checking with production next week for additional info.

Has anyone had this issue and if so could you find the fuse/breaker? We have power at a switch but not at lights. The fuse that thor added is before the switch which seems to indicate the Solera fuse breaker may be the issue.

We have followed the wire as far as we can and see no fuse/breaker between switch and light.

Thanks for the help.

Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately I am not familiar with your Solera LED awning, but it sounds like you have verified the Thor provided fuse is good. Did you verify that the 12vdc is also on the LED side of the switch when it is turned on? Did you verify that the ground wire for the LED lights is also still grounded properly? Also the resettable fuse may be a thermal fuse element provided by Solera, which resets itself after some cool down period (30 seconds to a minute for example), as opposed to an actual push button resettable fuse...... but I dont know the product. Perhaps the thermal fuse failed, or it is not resetting automatically if there is a short (pinched wiring) somewhere in the awning wiring perhaps? Not much help but just throwing some speculation out there for consideration. I hope you find the fault and that it is not a failed LED string.

Having the same problem with awning light

I have a 2019 Thor 25v with the same problem. I would also like to know where the breaker is hidden! I have looked over the circuit as best I can with no luck.
