Now a call to the Skunk Works to see what is available "off the shelf."
Something like this and not drill a hole in the door?

Will keep that in mind for a different project.
For the lights I will just drill a tiny hole and caulk it in.
A bit too steep for low amp exterior lighting, IMO.

Will the IR signal run through the trailer glass like on an entertainment center.

I'm thinking run it like herk, drill a small hole behind manual awning. In my trailer there are cabinets there, with the 12v radio and a window under neath. so I could put it all in a cabinet and just drill a small hole through the bottom and stick the IR up to the window.

How long is the IR wire is it detachable from the unit (for making an extension cable) worst case scenario can the unit be opened up and the IR and LED connections re-designed.

The dark tip on the white wire is the IR sensor.
