Default fixing the squirrel museum lights

hi all every night when CG goes down to soak in his spa he turns on the squirrel museum lights and a few others so i am not in the dark. last night when he turned on the museum lights half of them didn't come on (it's a string of LED christmas lights). this morning he opened the museum and removed the light panel so we could try and fix it.
we have the panel in the shop to check it out.



you can see the inner half don't work.



i have the christmas light tester and a multimeter so we cam figure out what is wrong.



we took out each light that was out one at a time and tested them, wouldn't you know it was the last two we tested. CG checked to see if we got any spares when we bought the set and found two so now all the lights work.



CG reinstalled the light panel and we are taking a well deserved rest now. hope everyone out there is doing ok.
