Outdoor LED's are too bright!

Hi folks. I have a 2016 Shamrock 183. The LED's that are on the underside of the awning are ridiculously bright. I actually feel uncomfortable leaving them on for any period of time, out of respect for my neighbors. Does anyone have a fix to dim them? Thanks

Here's a dimmer on Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...=AG48ONW8HFS8M
It looks like you wire it inline with the LED lights and then use the remote control to adjust the lights. It says it works on 5 to 24 volts. And it's cheap!

It appears that there are a variety of similar products on Amazon. I saw one that appeared to be surface mounted (if you've got a place to put it) and another that had a white control element (the link above is for red).

Let us know what you do and how it turns out.

Well, I purchased an inline dimmer from the link below. It was roughly $10.00 total with shipping and took 5 business days to arrive.

I could not be happier. It was easy to install and works perfectly. The best part is that when I turn them back on, it remembers the last setting. Even if the power is cut. Awesome!

Respect for campground neighbors--
Why don't folks turn off the outside lights to respect the folks who like it dark and consider the lights may shine into the neighboring trailers.
It doesn't make sense to leave lights on when you're not outside.
BTW, same pet peeve for those who have 24 hour security lights on their homes.

Not sure if you are responding to my post or someone else's. My point was while I'm outside, I don't use my LEDs because they're too bright. This little switch allows me to do that.

It's the same switch I use. I usually kick it to the second lowest setting. And if I want to annoy the neighbors it goes on strobe!!
