They are very easy to install if you follow the instructions on the box. They are very simple to operate with a push of a button. But, if you don’t…bad things can happen to your awning lights!

Step 3: Connecting the battery wires to the new light.
As you can see, they are very simple to put up. The best thing to do is to work your way from top-down connecting all of the wires at the same time.

The problem is that you have forgotten or maybe never knew how to take care of them. You just left them connected and forgot about them, but one day they go out on their own because you never told anybody else how important it is for your RV owners to check them when they need replacing.
