Mine are not a problem any more! Turned them on the other night and they no longer work. Step light still works as does the Blue lights on the front cap. Guess they aren't very dependable, only had my camper a little over two months!
I agree though they should have a dimmer on them! I will be watching to see what you come up with!

I'd be curious how the dealer will replace them. I took off the fuse panel to follow the wiring from the fuse. What an absolute mess the wiring is. Glad I did this, as I found a loose staple had cut all the way through the outer sheathing of some of the 110 wiring. Unfortunately, I couldn't tell if it'd also cut the inside sheathing. Wrapped with electrical tape and will have it addressed next time I'm at the dealer.

Back to awning lights, since the wiring is as neat as a bowl of spaghetti, I couldn't trace what went where. All I could tell, is that everything low voltage went up through a hole between the stove a fridge.

We absolutely love ours as you couldn't see a thing with the little yellow porch light. I also appreciate the added step light below the trailer.

I have not googled this yet, (and it's probably a stupid question), but is there a dimmable 12V switch that can replace the existing wall switch? I know they are available for 110V but not sure about 12V. BTW, I ordered the RC remote you have on your OP. It ships from China and takes about a month to receive. If you go that way, there is a company out of NJ who has them in stock for around $8. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Looks like there's some 12V dimmer switches

Bump...

I'd like to know how this turns out. I'm usually the type that goes for more discreet lighting effects. Call it "mood lighting" if you will...

I don't think you can do anything at the switch, as the switch controls both the step light (incandescent) and LED strip light. I suppose you could remove the bulb for the step light, effectively breaking that part of the circuit, so that the dimmer only had an affect on the strip lights.

Well, the good news is that it did not take a month to receive the RF controller (only about 10 days). All the controls work well...all, EXCEPT the dimmer control! RATS!!

I haven't looked at mine to see if it's possible, but a lot of those style lights come in a roll and you just cut the length you want (at certain places of course). I wonder if you could just cut some off the non-wired end? What's left would still be pretty bright, but there would be fewer diodes thus creating less light...?
