Take the handle apart. Water probably got into it and you need to replace the LED.

Mine was out when I bought it used so I took it apart to find the LED strip is glued into the upper housing. I ordered an entire new handle from Amazon for $65 (vs $149 from Airstream parts suppliers online).

Also of note, the entire lower chrome section of the handle was filled with water. I'm sure that would eventually find its way into the wall of the trailer through the screw holes, so I drilled a drain hole in the bottom.
