I haven't stopped since I got mine home!

Just checked Amazon and lots of options. Now to find out the amp draw of the lighting. Most are rated to 8 amps. LED's are very low draw so should be ok. I love the one with the remote control! Another remote! LOL...

Amazon.com: 12v dimmer

I used the one with the remote control. It works great. One nice thing about it is if you set the light level you can use the switch in the RV to turn them on and off and it will remember the light level. I wired it 12V - switch-dimmer-lights.

WW,
Love the new avatar...

Everyone else,
Appreciate the discussion and OPTIONS for another project. These final two weeks before the TH is here is going to kill me.

We run the LED lights on a 3 amp fuse

Our awning lights were also way too bright. In about 5 minutes I installed this dimmer just inside my basement door. Works perfect. Click image for larger version

BulletBob & Toddupton,
Thank you for shared info. Another great project on the list when the camper comes in...

Just ordered a 3.6 ft strip in amber to add to my outside kitchen to reduce the bugs the current white light attracts. Will add a wireless dimmer as well. Also added 18" bright white strips in bedroom closets.
