My awning had built-in lights but I hated to have to extend the awning each time. Added an additional strip on the side of the rig right under the awning and just tied it in to the porch light. Didn't have to route the wires inside. Since the porch light was not all that bright it is handy to fire up the long strip to actually light the area.
