Under awning lights

I have read through the thread on awning lights but I would like to know where folks are pulling the DC power from when doing a permanent install on a Georgetown motorhome. Pics would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks in advance and have a wonderful Memorial Day holiday and be safe.

I was hoping someone had installed lights under their awning and would share some pics of how they did the wiring.

Marty, I will try and get you a pic tomorrow. Essentially I ran my led strip along the edge back at the RV. As I passed over the top of the outside door light, I installed a "T" in the lights and dropped a connector down to the existing light fixture. Drilled a small hole in the top and fed wires inside, Connect to the existing bulb socket for the 12v supply. My leds operate when I turn on the porch light. Make sure all connections are water proofed.
