Hey Factory, Brian C & Bryan W,

Today we place our order for a new 3650RL. In Tampa, the new Big Country, had LED's in the awning......is that standard or do I need to add to order? We are also adding a 2nd awning off the dining/door side slide, would that have the LED's too?

We have LOVED our 3250, but wanted a LOT of new bells & whistles!

Thanks!

Lance

We can only hope she will be built by then........I REALLY do believe it would be tactically & strategically advantageous if the Great OZ (Bryan W.) would place our order at the front of the line so this awesome floor plan could be "demoed" at the upcoming SouthEast Regional Rally in Waynesville......just sayin.:rolleyes:

Thanks Bryan, we are really excited about our 2nd NEW Big Country and all it's "bells & whistles"!!

Do you know, off the top of your head, the answer to the original thread question regarding the awning LED's? Or is that the "get back to me Monday" part?:o

Thanks again!

I know the primary awning will have it. Don't know for sure about the second awning. This is a rare option, we will find out.

Does anyone have a source and wiring plan for retrofitting? Those lights are the cat's pajamas.

Rumor has it that my 2nd awning might have the LED's too!! Online date for our build is March 7th!!

Woooooowhooooo, it just might be here in time for our rally's the first 2 weeks of April. Lots to do....Maxxair, BR TV install, practicing Levelup and Mrs. decorating!

Not sure about retrofit, but sure they would sell a bunch.....saw the lights at the Tampa show and they are nice!!

Here is a picture of the Dometic Awning LED.

It CAN be added to your RV. (see video link from Dometic below).

I just saw our new cyclone 4100 on Sat. I was just built Feb. 25 and deliveried the next day to dealer. It has has the LED lights on the awning roller when extended. Pretty cool. Sure anxious for Friday when we do PDI. Just one problem we got 8 inches of snow today.

I had the dealer install the Dometic LED lights about 1 inch under our awning (1" under the awning in the rolled up position) so that the LED lights can still be used when the awning is rolled up. Man are they cool looking? And the RF remote works out to very far distances. I have had success with operating them well beyond the advertised 180 foot range. They are super cool!

Posts 11,13 and 14 in this thread show how I had mine installed and a short video I uploaded for people on here to see it in action.

We picked our 3110 Cyclone up yesterday and were completely surprised to see that we had LED's on both awnings...nice surprise! We ordered in February and had no idea we would get them...guess they are working them into the 2014 production line.

We just picked up our 2014 3650RL a few weeks ago and were pleasantly surprised to have the awning LED lights. But now they aren't working. Any ideas on what to do to get them back on. We can't get in for service until August and would really love to use them

I am in same boat. Mine went out on me today. Turned them on before leaving this afternoon and I get home and neighbor comes by to ask about them and I realize they aren't working.

We had a small section that wouldn't light on our main awning, about 5 LED's in a row. The third or fourth time we turned them on, and had left the trailer for a few hours....when we came back all were lit. And are still working...can't explain what happened lol, but works for me.

Heartland is sending me a new set under warranty and I will install and rewire them.

My lights on my awning over the side garage door are partially burned out, came that way from the dealer on 2014 Cyclone 3110. Am working with heartland now to have them replaced.

As an update to my previous post...several small sections burnt out again after a few weeks...we contacted our dealer who mailed us a new set. (we didn't buy our trailer local) So we will install them in the spring. The lights on our garage awning are fine.

Here are some instructions for my LED mod. Purchasing info included for about $25. You can also purchase a 16' strip of warm white and make your own light card to fit inside your inside ceiling lights. You can make them dimmer or brighter just by chaining a group of 3 LED's. Make sure you order the 5050 smd 300LED. These are the brightest. The merchant I have dealt with 3 times http://stores.ebay.com/phy2012/ has been a good experience. The hyperlink will get you to his store. He will ONLY use Paypal so both sides are safe.

Ordered some for our Key Largo. Will be putting them on this spring when its warm enough to do it right. Will have 4 sets on it in total. One under the door slide to give us lite there also.
Forgot to say we ordered ours from Ebay and was priced great. Remote and black backing as this will let them blend in on our full color paint job.

My 2014 Key Largo has them under the main and second awning. The ones under the second awning had one section out when we picked it up, but are now all working. The ones under the main awning only have one section working from the get go. In a few weeks, we are taking ours back to have BOTH sets replaced under warranty. Yeah....they are cool...WHEN THEY ARE WORKING...but I dunno about the longevity of them. SUPPOSEDLY, they were working before this unit left the factory as has been explained the QC procedure to me. But during checkout, they were dark!

Overall, loving our new Key Largo...but there are some small BUGS that need exterminating!!!
