Power to them and the awning lights come from the factory step light and has a dusk to dawn electric eye on them mounted to the side of the step hanger(little light just to the right of the step hanger in the cutout) Can turn them off with the factory step light switch inside.
Thank you for the speedy reply.
I see the switch you are using. Does it have another contact on the door itself like an alarm contact or is there an eye in it?
What is the second pic you posted? Are you showing the power source for the switch?
The step lights look real nice. How long was the strip you had used?
I am going to mount 2 pcs for each well of 12" blue LED strips in my step well. One on top and one on the bar behind the second step. I figure that way I can avoid the folding step issue.
I already have the new interior switches installed with power to step well and to the awning lights. I will install the step lights and the awning lights this weekend. The weather should finally be warm enough for the 3M molding tape to stick. (pics to follow)
Thank you again in advance.
