Starlights Inc has a huge variety of LED's and you can contact them with questions. Most dealers such as Camping world sells them too. They're not cheap but they save battey big time if you boondock. Most of my fixtures are replaced now.

reducing battery draw is important to me boondocking

I use a 2 gal acumulator tank which saves power (pump runs steady to fill tank pressure instead of on/off using starting amps each time). With that and LED's last week I stayed 5 nights and 6 days and used 20% of the 4 batteries I use (on my meter) That was 3 lights still lit on the panel. I can stay more than a week, no generator.

I have a 120v lamp between two chairs. I converted it to 12v with a bulb I found on Amazon which fits a standard socket, shines 25w with 6w draw. $22, not cheap but very useful and pratical.

Where did you get the power from for the awning strip? Is there a hot wire on the power awning? Is yours switched? This just shot to the top of my wish list!!!!!

I have a manual awning - so for the time being I have the led controller, power adapter, and the ac power cord running down the inside of the lower awning arm. I plug it in to the outside AC outlet on the camper.

Mine are wired to the 12v in the front storage hatch...they are 12v leds , but many use the 110 to 12v power supply...I ran my wires behind the power awning arm...it had a plastic wire cover already...then tied it into the storage hatch light....

I think there may be another post with pictures and a write up by someone else in another thread...
