When I did mine, I used Turbs' suggestion and ran the wire (I used speaker wire) through the hole where the awning wiring comes out--no drilling! I used a straightened-out coat hanger to figure out where the wire was going on the inside, tied a string to the end of the hanger and pulled it back through, then tied the wire to the string and pulled it back in. I used clear RTV silicone to secure the wire into the corner of the awning arm. If I had use white covered speaker wire, you'd never even know it was there.
Inside, I drilled a hole next to my indicator/water pump/water heater panel, found a hot 12v wire from that panel, put a fuse inline with it, and wired it to the Radio Shack switch I bough for the LEDs.
