I used the small pieces, wired directly to a 12v switch. No controller needed, but they are all on then. Just soldered 16g leads on the strips.

Thanks but unfortunately my porch light is under the middle of my awning. I see others have the same issue so I'm hoping one of the people who have dealt with that situation can get some pictures up.

Here you go. You can see the sensor coming out of the bottom of the light housing.

I installed my LED lights this week. Cut access above the refrigerator on the outside under the awning and fished wire down to receptacle for refrigerator. Installed a blank white plastic plate with weather proof gasket then caulked it to ensure there is no leaks while driving in rain. Cleaned side with alcohol and attached LED strip to camper.
Works great, color changes with dim also.

Thanks for the pics. Does the LEDs stick on the side of the RV?

Yes came with double side tape. Drove 3 hours between 40 and 70 MPG 4 hours after installing them. Total install cost was around $ 80.

FYI if you have issue with double side tape you can get 3M VHB tape. This is the tape that they use to hold metal window seal strips on convenience stores like the BPs.
