My RF controller is in the pass thru storage comp. and I can be in side and have no trouble changing colors or on/off.. Ran 4 wire cord up awning arm following awning motor wires and used same hole the factory did. I picked up power from light in pass thru. Have 'em on trailer and in roller. Just have to plug the roller ones in each time..very simple. Didn't have to change any fuse or rating. Also, the surge protector says they pull'in 1amp.

Huh.. I'll have to look at that. I don't have a light or plug in pass thru but I would have easy access to battery from there anyways. Just not sure I can get wire up to the awning from there of from switch panel. Thanks for the info!

I used this dimmer and it works pretty well. The remote is a cheapo but serves my purpose (which was to dim down those bright LEDs). I wired into the appropriate panel switch (cut the wire and spliced in the dimmer hot leads). Be sure to find the negative lead (ground) coming from the LED strip (paired with the hot wire to the switch) and splice into that wire for the negative lead to the dimmer. I rarely use the remote as the dimmer returns to its previous setting if you only use the panel switch.

DR, I ordered that same one in case it becomes too big a pain to get RGB lights up there.

You can also use a 12 volt dusk to dawn sensor.

If you do need to run a new wire, can't you just use the existing wire as a pull string for the new wire?
