I like the idea Turbs, We're getting an ice storm here this morning, so a little laugh go's a long way.

We paid 156.00 for this set on sale but she was unhappy after the perchase. So before I purchase these I want to make sure that it is what she wants. (they probably dont make what she wants). Let me know it these do that. I think that the 25.00 is a great price compared to what I paid for the set that I have. Thanks for your help with this. Anyone else that has them can answer as well I just asked Herk cause he helped on another matter with the awning remote
Turbo, Did you get achance to read this, Herk said talk to you about it.

Okay, I have a couple questions for you. Is that the dusk to dawn switch mounted next to the awning rail in the third picture. Do you have to mount that switch up high like that or just somewhere where it can see night and day. The only reason I ask is because my wife wil not like for me to drill any holes. Why did you get an aluminum box, is the switch not waterproof, and how did youn attach the led strip just with the tape or did you screw it in there?

Thanks Scott

The waterproof box is to house the control for the lights and is mounted at the top of the rail. The photo electric eye is mounted to the rh side of the step cutout. Drilled a hole in the side of the plastic cutout to get to the factory step light and also ran the wire to the ribbon lights on the awning rail from the basement to the factory step light by removing the black plastic well in the basement and ran the wire under the black plastic well. Wire from awning lights runs along side the wires that power the awning and goes thru the same hole as the awning power wire. Just recaulk the hole and put the plastic cover back.

Ok so the box up top is for the awning lights and not the under step lights, that explains a bunch by the pictures. I mounted my awning lights controller in the storage compartment and fed them out through one of the vent popes that run down through trhere and brought them out of the vent on thr=e front on the unit right by my front awning rail.
