Awning LED Lights


Recommended Posts

I have a 2015 Itasca 42QD. The awnings have LED lights, both front and back. The awnings work fine but the LEDs won’t turn on. The front and back each have a separate switch but neither one turns on. I pulled out the panel next to the passenger seat and found the fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse but it just pops again so I know there must be a short. What I don’t understand is why both awnings don’t work if they each have a separate on/off switch. Do have have a common neutral? There is a rats nest of wires in there and I am at a loss as to how to trace this short. Has anyone else had this problem?

If the LED lights are 12V, which I suspect that they are, then there is no neutral other than to connect to the most available chassis ground. Even if there were such it would not cause a fuse to open since the grounds all become common anyway. You have a short somewhere in the positive side and since turning off the switches does nothing, that would indicate that the problem is between the two switches and the power fuse.
