Here is a thread where I posted photos of mine and some others did as well. I found my wires behind a piece of trim in a upper cabinet right where they exited the camper to go to the power awning and the led light strip, that came factory installed. I put mine inline so the switch for the existing light stop still provides power but the little dimmer can do its job only when the switch is on. Best part I can actually turn off the awning light and leave just the amber step light, since on my camper they are wired together. I found the dimmer on Amazon or e-bay for a few dollars, just depends on how fast you want of need them. I read reviews that people had problems with them so I ordered two but the first one worked great and I am pleased with the results. It even remembers the last setting, so if I turn it off with the switch when I turn it back on it returns to the same dimming level as before. The remote is ok not a ton of range but does the job and gives you preset % or you can adjust up and down.

Hey guys, sorry I was away. That is the same one I used, paid a bit more for it but same one. I had to mount the dimmer out at the LED strip, but the remote works great.

Thanks, both! Back when the mod linked above was posted, DW and I were on the road... blinding ourselves and everyone near us with the awning lights.

There should be about 5 inches of exposed wire on the right end of the strip light that turns down and runs into the support for the awning. I installed mine there and wire tied it to the awning support.

Make sure you install the transmitter in the correct orientation. Also, you will need to seal the transmitter where the wires run under the heat shrink (you'll see what I mean when you receive the unit).

Very simple installation. I used crimp wire connectors and shrink wrap.

I mounted the remote just inside the door using a small piece of velcro tape (with all of the other controls/monitors).
