Cut a length of led 5050 lights and mounted them in the cutout for the steps and wired them into the awning lights on a dusk to dawn switch.

I use a battery powered motion detector light that has a magnet on the back.
Our steps are close to the rear of the TT so I stick it on the front of the rear bumper.
2 or more could be stuck on the stairs or frame.

Do they need a transformer? Where can I purchase white ones? My trailer came with white led lights on the awning

Maybe post a "wanted ad" in the classifieds to see of anyone has cutoff scraps.
