LED Dimmer

I know it's been talked about multiple times. Has anyone put in this type of dimmer for their LED awning light? It is a pulse wave modulation dimmer.

No. I've been looking at them. I would also like to hear from anyone who has done it.

One of the things I found lacking is that while these RV's come with LED's throughout and the LED for the awning, I say poor form to the manufacturers. All of them. I have not heard of one who doesn't do it.
That is, the step light, the outside front light (for those that have it, and I am not talking about the light on the power jack), the back street side outside light and the oven light are still all incandescent bulb lights.

One of the first things I did was to change over all these lights to LED. So my question is: Would I still have to isolate the step light if the step light is also an LED?

One of my main motivations is to isolate the step light from the awning light. I figured out which wires goes to the the step and the awning light last night. My question now is the hookup of the dimmer switch. Red wire +12V, White wire light, black wire ground. Connect ground to other side of light. See the attached image. How do I find the ground.
