They wouldn't be $30 from the dealer :-)
I think someone posted Camping World at like $149

you are correct for the aftermarket add-on LED from Dometic... but they have an awning with them built into the awning. I saw one on an Eagle(?). I know it would be more than $30.00, but I would probably pay it as well as others if they offered it.

Well, I installed a new/fresh battery in the controller but it still does not work. I am sending the whole thing back to Amazon. One last question; when I push the "on" button I do not see a light come on in the small window on the front of the controller so I am wondering if the controller is bad. Could someone let me know if a small light appears (or a beam of light) when the controller button is pushed?
Thanks!

Awning Lighting

When you plug the light strip into the controller, are you matching the arrows? Maybe there connected with the arrows not matching? Or maybe you just got a bad bunch. No light on my remote. There always 1 bad one in the bunch, and maybe you got it.

When initially playing with it, I had to put remote like 2" away from RF sensor.
If that doesn't work, sounds like you have the bad one in the bunch.
DOA
Amazon is great with returns. They probably don't even want broken one back.

Kind regards,
Doug

I to am concerned about rolling the plug up in the awning, and would prefer to cover the whole 18 feet. Any help greatly appreciated. Shoot me a pm if you can help me out. My plan is to cut one plug off my 16 foot piece and the plug off the short piece, strip back the wires, connect them, heat shrink them, and cover with silicone. One other concern I have is the connector that the controller plugs into. It will be exposed to the elements. If I have it sticking out one end of the awning, I figure I can rig something up to keep the rain and salt air from damaging it. Once again thank you for any assistance.
Dougtoms01 sent me a left over peice of his today that was about 4 feet long. I will likely only need about 2 feet of it and will be installing it next week. I also bought some of the connector peices to keep them together. Once I am done I will shoot you a PM, and if no one else has sent you a section I can send you what was left and a connector.

Thanks again for the help dougtoms01!

Krackeer, try a little dielectric grease on your connectors. It will help keep corrosion down.

Here is a link to a web page for Locktite’s brand (locktite 37534 tune-up grease).

Re: Awning Lighting

Got mine in the mail today and they look great. Can't wait to add the to the TT. We have a huge winter storm on the way (foot of snow possibly) so it will be a while till I get them installed. I am jealous of those who already got to install their's.

Good call on the dielectric grease for the connectors. Thanks for the link.
