Oh, and you don't need to limit yourself to 2 photos. Just hit the "upload" button; then when it shows as "uploaded" you can continue to browse for 2 more. Repeat until you hit the 10 photo/attachment limit.
Thank you, Herk, I did not know that. Ed attached the LED's directly to the RV as our awning is manual and the material from the awning is directly against the RV' no exposed tube. I am anxious to see the lights at night.

I really want some of the LED's on the steps and in the cabinets like you have, but I think Ed is done with mods for now. I have driven him crazy with stuff.

Does anyone have an ebay link available? Cheers everyone!! Thank you in advance!
hi,
Most of us have gone with these LED light strips. You can wire direct to 12V or 110V with included transformer. I bought mine from this guy.

I have the light strip installed under the rain gutter for a year and it has worked very well. Some break down in integrity of the diodes but I have the more modern set to replace them with. But this weekend I replaced the original outside porch light with a Smart Light 1000 - RV Motion Sensor Light in black to match the rest of the trim. List for around $60.00 got it on amazon for 48.00 and free shipping it looks great and when you take the dog out at 3:00 am it's nice to have it come on for that quick trip and go off so as to not attract then nasty Mosquitos . Picture is of the white model and comes with a diode bulb.

Looks like the same ones I got on Amazon but I paid more!!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Here they are on my last trailer, have them on my new one also but no pics, I bought the 16' extension and ran it down the awning arms concealed behind the plastic strips that hide the wiring, mounted everything in the cargo bay with IR antenna hanging down to catch the signal from the remote, i do have to connect and disconnect them at the awning tube after and before I roll the awning. I just received the second set I ordered to put up against the trailer on the aluminum strip of the awning bracket and tie it in with a splitter so both run at the same time off of one remote

Do a search for post from oldcoot on this thread. He wired his step light with the dusk to dawn control. You would need to buy either 12V or 120V control depending on how you wired your lights? It would also depend on if you are using a switch ect...
You can buy from Ebay for cheap china ones.

I put some white LEDs in my F150. I put 2 small strips in the console storage and used the tape that was on the LEDs. Put 2 long strips in the bed of my truck and used 3M automotive double sided tape. The ones in the bed of the truck haven't moved in a year. The ones in the console fell off after about 6 months. Even though the ones on the LEDs said 3M I didn't trust it when I installed them on my camper.

Just wanted you to be aware and keep an eye on them.
