LED Awning Lights

My husband and I are thinking of installing LED awning light to the underneath of our awning on our Eagle HT 26.5 RLS. Has anyone done this? Recommendations on brand of lights or installation? Do the seem to stick well?

Thanks, Sue

Ours had them from factory ... I can tell you I like them but they are almost too bright for my taste

I agree with Paintinfool3....almost too bright. It would be perfect if there was a dimmer installed and I read that some have done this with factory lites.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

I would like to know what dimmer they used because I would love to install one but didn't know if they were different with led lighting

Do a search "LED awning lights" and you will find lots of info about dimming LEDs. But be aware of the LEDs you buy because all LEDs are not dimmable.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

My 2014 Seneca awning light was a real "beacon" until I added a dimmer. It works fantastic. Here is an older thread where I list the dimmer I used and briefly how I installed it:

The thread started talking about central compartment locking but several posts in you will see my information.

I bought mine off ebay it's called RGB for Red, Green, Blue. They are very bright but I love them. Put it on white and it lights up all in front of the trailer and 20 feet out. The sticky is strong but not strong enough to last. Mine is still stuck above the awning but when I turned to run down the side of my trailer with the strip I ended up using Velcro that came out clean and looked good. The 18$ ones on ebay are very good for the money. Comes with a remote but you just have to point it at the IR sensor. (Infrared)

Are you sure? I know not all LED bulbs are not dimmable. But an actual LED like under the awning is an diode and if the dimmer is LED compliant it should work? It's doesn't have the circuitry to reduce the 120V like an LED bulb would need.

This is super helpful, thank you so much. I will take a look on eBay and see what I can find.
