Sorry for the long rambling post that follows.
I think I was confusing you on my last post. Sorry for that.
I am putting the LED's that I ordered already on the wall of the camper. I ordered the LED's with a 110V power supply so I could just plug them in to an outlet. (very easy for me)
I had inquired about the dusk to dawn switch that was mentioned by OldCoot as an option to install in the LED setup.
It would appear everyone has used a 12V power source for the install of the LED's so I was wondering if it might be easier for me to just buy a 12V power supply to use like everyone else has, but I am still not sure where I can find power to cut into on a 12V line in the camper. The only 12V exterior light I have is a single amber porch light but it is powered by my 5 function remote control http://www.lci1.com/images/Flyers/LI...te-2nd-gen.pdf
and does not have a switch in the camper for it. ( all 5 slots are filled)
I figured if I had both the 12V and 110V options, I could do which ever was easier for me to understand with information provided by everyone here.
You had mentioned the motion sensor for the LED's and I figured since my steps do not currently have any light, power source or switch control, that would be a completely different mod for me to do in the future.
I would just need to get power to the steps first, then I would wire the motion sensor that you had mentioned into that line along with a new set of LED's and a switch to light up the steps.
Given the information that you provided, I now understand how to get the motion sensor to work with the step lights that I will buy but I need to figure out how to get a 12V power line there first.
Can I run a line straight from the battery to both sets of steps for a power source then use the information you provided to wire the steps up?
Would it be better/easier for me to ad a new circuit/breaker (if i have room in the box) and use that newly added 12V line as a source for both the LED lights for the exterior wall application and the step lights?
If I put the power from that new breaker into a 4" box, couldn't I just pigtail the lights for the exterior wall LED's and the step lights, killing 2 birds with one stone?
I am probably confusing you and me... I just do not know about how the power in the panel is split between 110V and 12V so adding a new 12V breaker might be more difficult than I think?
Like I said, sorry for the confusion, I do not want to be a burden here.
Thank you for the information you have already provided.
