Thanks for everyone that posted pictures. We ordered a set and would like to do the outside mount with interior wiring.
If I understand correctly, we wire from the light set to the interior controller using ground sprinkler wiring (or phone wiring?)?
We would like to wire via 12v. Without a power adapter do we need the male input plug to plug into the controller or is that provided? What size do we need for that, and where can we get it (part number?)

My set came with the 110V adapter and a 12V pigtail power cord. I used the 12V adapter wire plug in that I ordered here
You can buy an extension cable here so you do not need to solder, just plug it in.

Maybe I am confused, but I thought they were being mounted to the end of the awning, the part that sticks out with the fringe, not right up against the RV.

You can do it either way. I will be mounting mine like that too because I love to hang other things from the end of the awning. Plus when the awning is rolled up, you can still use the lights at night! But the choice is yours!

Good idea to put it inside the light.

BTW, the amber light is the porch light, scare lights are about 6" in diameter and are clear.

Normally one per side to "thwart" off hooligans.
They can be turned on to "scare" intruders lol
We use them to play bags or corn hole into the early morning hours lol

Thanks for clearing that up, I thought I heard it referred to as that, now I know.
It's my best idea so far, the TT is 2 weeks old and the thought of drilling....

I don't understand this ^^. I am sorry I sound stupid, but I am new to this and don't know what things are called yet and I am not modification savvy. My husband is, but he is not interested in doing much so it is all on me.
