I was thinking of running the wire in where the awning wires go in and trying to trace it to a power source some how. I just need to look at it in person and figure it out.


I don't have a basement. I have a light in the pass through storage up front.

Is this where the motor wires go up the arm?

I would have to look to be honest. The awning arm is a good bit away from the front storage.

I then stuck a piece of velcro to stick the controller and IR, under the the awning. I connect it to the light strip; I then connect to the power adapter , made all the cables the correct length, raise the awning and run it down the awning to connect it to the trailer.

Works like a charm, and yes the remote allows to change the light effects: fade in, fade out, blink, single colour, multi-colour and so on. Very nice.
Any chance of pics for those of us with manual awnings? Also, the link to Ebay from the origional post says "no white" is there no white color option? Also, is the AC adaptor to plug directly into an extension cord included in the purchase price? Thanks!

I never noticed that it said no white. There is a "W" button on the remote. When I use that I guess it wouldn't be considered a total white but it was pretty bright. In fact, the first two pictures in my post is what you get with the "W" button. Almost more like a light blue. Yes the adaptor is included.

Like I said I lost all the photos of the install when "my dog at my homework." (PC ate my camera card).

There is a 12 VDC socket on the side of the control box and a short pigtail of the correct plug. The wires are red and black.

The pigtail goes into the shrink wrap and is soldered to my red/black wires to the camper's storage area light fixture.

Shhhhh, I just ordered a set. Don't tell DW, hopefully, I can get them and get them installed without her knowing. I might be able to play dumb (real easy for me as it is natural) and say "I must have misunderstood you sweetheart, I thought you wanted them"

Wish me luck.

Herk,

Does that strip fit into the awning tube slot like the other one does?
