How to replace front cap LED strip on 2014 keystone sprinter 324 FWBHS

Do you know for sure it is bad or maybe just a bad connection?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It works just half of the LED lights on the strip are not working I have a new replacement strip from keystone and need to know how to access the wires on the front fiberglass cap to attach new replacement strip?
Expert:  Randall replied 8 months ago.
This may be one of those bad engineering things where they put that on and then istalled the inner wall. I have never had to replace on in the location. What is on that wall on the other side? The bedroom closet? If so, you can access it from there, but it would sure help to check the strip out first and see which end the power comes into it from. You may have to put an access hole inside IF the wiring hole now won't allow those leads to come out to get to the connections.

The wires pull through the front cap to a point I'm guessing where the connectors stop it from the inside of the fiberglass. On the inside of the camper is the front closet and I would rather not cut a hole in there? Any ideas?
Expert:  Randall replied 8 months ago.
Then you could enlarge that hole just enough to squeeze one connection through and then the other and seal it back up using a rubber grommet and sealer when you get the new one on there. That should allow you to get this done.

What would you recommend to use to enlarge the hole?
Expert:  Randall replied 8 months ago.
A small rat tailed file..........and just elongate it some to allow the connection to pass through.
