Pics of the LED striip

There ya go. You may notice that I've changed out all of the coach lighting with LED's. The original tail lights are from Command Technologies and were an easy conversion with thier upgrade kit.

Man-0-Man is that bright stuff!
How did you mount then and get power to them?

LED strip

I ran the connection line down the after mounted upright bracket for the awning. Drilled a hole in the side of the van; comes in the van just above the floor and plugs into the AC outlet 3 inches away, on the wall in the bedrooom.

I got mine from a company called HitLights found them online for $40 where some RV retailers wanted nearly $150. All different colors and even a remote. I put mine in a clear light trak at the end of the awning.

The LED awning light strip is now standard on all Dometic power awnings. It is even set up with its own rocker switch on the control panel. Great feature.

You might check with Dometic and see if you can order directly from them. They might even have some installation suggestions.

I found a 17 foot outdoor LED light strip at Lowe's for $20. It attaches to the awning channel hooks and plugs into the power outlet on the side of the TT.

2014...but our 2014 Windjammer with Dometic power awning does not have them. When we toured the Rockwood plant two weeks ago, I asked when they started putting them on as standard equipment. June...and ours was build in March. And according to Rockwood, they can't easily be retrofitted.

Our 2014 Surveyor Select 305 came with awning LED strip on the awning but we don't use it because its so bright and harsh. Makes me feel like I'm on a Broadway stage or in a surgical procedure room. I guess if I need to dig a splinter out of my sons foot or something I may be glad we have them but other than that they are useless to us.
