I think the idea of finding where to safely hookup to 12VDC is only part of the issue.
How are you going to handle the 12VDC connection on the outside of the trailer.
Are you going to terminate into some sort of 12VDC PLUG arrangement... A Flip lid type weather tight connection? Maybe just a MALE-FEMALE pigtail type connection like you see with the Radio Shack versions...
I don't think you will be able to permanently wire the 12VDC into your awning lights - I might be wrong here... I would want a disconnect on the outside even if it is only used just for maintenance...
