So I finally put mine on last night. Here is the dimmer module I ordered from Amazon:

Robot Check

Attached are some pics from installation. It works GREAT so far, and I'm super glad I finally did it.

I sealed the ends of the module with some flexible outdoor adhesive and added some red shrink wrap to close it up tight. I wasn't able to use heat shrink over all of it like I wanted primarily because I didn't have enough wire slack on the trailer. But I did use water proof heat-shrink butt connectors. I wrapped the whole thing up tight with electrical tape and tried to slide the module into the same track that holds the lights, but that didn't work. So while I was fussing with it, I noticed that the light track is sort of clipped onto the bottom of the gutter. So I was able to cut a small hole in the track and zip-tie the whole bundle up out of the way.

The remote doesn't work at any great distance; I'd say good up to about 10 feet maybe, but it functions exactly like I wanted it to.

Hey guys, I need some help. I ordered 3 Mini LED Controller Dimmer with RF Wireless Remote Control DC 5~24V 12A from Amazon, due to the fail rate that everyone says in the reviews. I have tried all three dimmers and they all do the same thing.....the led lights on my camper come on with the switch in the camper but the remote does not work...it will not turn the lights off or try and dim them but nothing changes...I have tired everything I can think of, I even bought new batteries for the remotes....I made sure I had the direction and the +/- correct. I have tried all 3 dimmers and and they all do the same thing....I think the odds are that all three cant be bad??....am I missing something? I hate I cut my camper wire and now this is not working. Can anyone help me? Thank you!

Can't answer your question, but I have a question of my own when someone with one of these answers yours.
Every time the led strip is shut off with the trailer switch, does the dimmer have to be turned on again and redimmmed or does it have a memory of the last setting?

Are those factory LED lights? I really want to install a dimmer on my lights but so many conflicting stories on if you can.

Yes, factory 2015 X213 hated the bright LEDs felt bad having them in in a camp ground lit up lite Walmart parking lot.

Wish I had a better understanding of 12v wiring and such. I really want to try to dim these lights but am lacking the confidence to make this a DIY project.
