Main Awning LED lights stopped working on 3605

The LED lights under my main awning have stopped working. The lights under the 2nd awning still work, but are on a separate switch. The labeling on my fuse panel is not legible, but i removed every fuse, and none of them are blown. Anyone know if there is a fuse somewhere else other than the main breaker/fuse panel? Thanks in advance.

If your 3605 is like mine once the switch is on you need the remote to activate the lights. Does your have a remote?

Bad switch? Loose connection?

Are the LED's wired direct or do they have a control module?

There is a possibility they may have just crapped out too.

Found the problem. Outside where the wiring goes into the side of the trailer, there is a little plug hidden in the awning channel. it had come unplugged, plugged it back in, and we are good to go. Thanks guys

Had the same problem with my 3605. I lightly pulled on the wire where it comes out of the side to give it a little more play. Does any one know if you can change out the interior switch to a dimmer? Will it work on LED,s.

You have to have a specific dimmer for LED's but yes it should work.

Here is one from JR Products. You could also purchase one of the control modules and wire a remote into the circuit.
