Ours has little blue lights inside the outside speakers! I'm with you, no idea why... Also a nice little strip on the front - doesn't illuminate anything but it's there so I must need it too... Lol

Our 2016 Roo came with very bright white LEDs on the awning (and the blue in the fridge). I just bought a cheap remote control dimmer and set it so the lights come on at 25% brightness, which is more than sufficient.

Where did you get the remote and where did you wire it in at. I was thinking to hook one in at the on /off switch on the panel. Just wondering what you did

Bought off Amazon. This is the exact one:

I was able to access the positive wire to the light strip from inside a cabinet, right where it exits the sidewall of the trailer. I was originally thinking of installing it on the backside of the switch, but inside the cabinet seemed like a better option (less wires in the way, easy access, etc).

Aviator TTs came with the blue lights wrapped around the edge of the ceiling inside the living room and bedroom and on dimmers. Make good night lights when on dim. Makes a great sugar shack

I have the blue lights and I like them, but also found it odd that they aren't dimmable....so I came up with a solution! I put on another set!!! I bought a 4 color set from Amazon and stuck them to the awning tube....ran the wire up the awning arm to the same point he factory lights run into the trailer. I used a small project box from Radio Shack and put two waterproof switches in it. Stole the power from the the originals to power both the new and existing lights, but now I can turn the bright blue lights OFF when I want and choose my color and brightness level on my new set when I want it to be dim. Plus, now I have LOTS of light if we're setting up in the dark!

I use the muli- colored light strips with a RF controller.....can turn on, off, change colors, and never move from where ever.......have 'em in slot in awning roller tube and under awning attachment point on trailer........there are even ones available that will chase music.....you can even power 'em up with a day/ night sensor, or a motion sensor.....as far as powering up clearence lights, gives you a chance to make sure there all working...very easy to do in trailer pig-tail..

Moved out of the parents' house in 1971 at age 21 to move into an apartment with my new bride.
When I toured the new RV with the blue awning lights and blue lit fridge I was ecstatic. This was the happening bachelor pad I never had. Sure, meat takes on a funky look in the blue light and there is the presence of that bride, but still.
