I love the idea, and I actually thought when you first posted that it was a motion sensor, not dusk to dawn. So, we will see what my husband comes up with since I told him it was motion sensor. The coming out of the door will need addressing...

I have found a couple different sensors that I think will work. It will be a while before I get to try it out though, our trailer is already covered in snow. I will let you know how it all works out though

Finally got around to adding the awning ribbon lights to the photoelectric control for the step lights. We like the lights coming on automatically when we get back to the camper after dark.

Happy to report that the lights are still white and after using them every night over 1 month in Concord and 2 months here in Florida, they have not been a cricket or bug attraction. We've never turned them off, if we ever tow the trailer at night, I will have to remember to switch them off.

Just go out in the yard and dig up a can you've hidden from TOWTA and load up and come to FL.

2 sets of ribbon lights and a photo elec control was around $45 total. Wired it into the worthless factory step light from which I removed the bulb.

Like the idea. I have a criling light right over my door on the inside that comes on with my step light. Really useless to me. Would like to wire that one so it comes on when we open entry door. Had this feature in my Bighorn and got spoiled. If I can figure out how to do this and add the LED under the steps I will happy since I have very por night vision...so DW says. She really misses the auto on entry light as well. Any ideas/replies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Steve
