My current plan is to switch the LED awning light separately. So far it looks like the wires will be easy to access, but I just need a little more detail about the switch I'm planning to use. We'll see how it goes...

I thought about trying to trace the circuit and separate it for all of about 5 minutes before I went looking for a different solution...

X2. I'm trying to decide whether to put a dimmer on the LED light strip. It is TOO much light. But the dimmer almost has to be wired in on the outside of my trailer. Another thread regarding the LED awning strip talked about the fact the dimmer has to be connected directly to the ground wire from the strip - the ground wire at the switch is common to other devices. (LED lights must use a PWM dimmer switch, not a resistive-type dimmer switch like those used for incadescent bulbs.) And since that step light is in the same circuit, the dimmer would have to be wired at the LED strip.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but if you fix the amber step light, I don't think you'll notice much difference. The awning light definitely overpowers the dim amber light.
