I do have a question, where did you find the wire for the extension from the end of your lights to your controller? Thanks
Thank you aabshire.
Here is a link to a previous post with all the links. post #784

Well, we did some frugal shopping. Got the mattress topper, xchocks, and still had money for the LEDs. They should be in from Amazon on Wednesday.

Still trying to figure out how to run the wiring. My thoughts, drill the smallest of holes that the wire can fit though at the front, under my awning and gutter. This will lead me to the shelf above the tent end. From there, I can wire the controller there and connect the wires to the bunk light. Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I had some white LED Strips left after installing a short section in the step recess.

Never did like the lighting in the under storage, with only one light on the curb side. And inevitably when I need the light, I'm on the other side of the RV.

Cut two lengths of the LED Strip the width of the under storage, and mounted them one third of the way in from each side to the under side of the floor joist. Then took two single pole double throw switches and wired up a two way circuit with a switch on each side. The light is awesome, and can now be turned on and off from either side of the RV.

Put them in the pantry with a micro switch and make points with DW.
