Klassic - were you able to find both wires direct from the LED in the basement of your North Point? Or did you somehow have to run a dedicated ground wire?

They are behind the bottom drawer of the dresser.
And there is a hole into the basement the washer pipe goes through.
I cut the wire and ran 4 wire telephone cable (it's all I had) to the dimmer location on the basement wall beside the door.

I have a 2016 Jayco 32bhds but cant find the wires in the front storage compartment. Did you have to remove any panels or something?

Guess my mod is more of a repair since my oem led strip pretty much died this summer. Only the first 2 ft light up now. Sooooooo I have ordered a replacement set that comes with dimmer and multi color settings. Now I have to figure out how to remove the oem lights as they are mounted in a plastic run that is clipped into the same metal groove that holds the awning material to the edge of the roof. Best I can tell is it will take a pair of needle nose and some yanking to pull it from the grove. Looks like plenty of room to mount the new strip along the top of the TT siding and connect directly into the wires feeding the oem strip.
