I think he was talking about my install on the wall.

Here is what it looks like at night on the "white" setting. That setting is all the lights on at the same time. Seems to be plenty of light for me.

A waterproof box (like a dive box) might be a better solution.
Don't cut a hole, just attach the box to the bottom of the rail with the lights. If the lites get old, take the whole shebang down.

I think I will copy Herks placement so the lights don't shine inside the camper, that is if DW doesn't catch me working on them and squelch the whole project.

But you can always rotate the awning a little to shine light done or out more if they were in the roller?

Wiring is easier for me and once I stake the awning down, rotating the awning is not an option. Herk's way just looks simpler for me, and I dern sure need it simple. I'm a firm believer of the KISS principle from necessity.
