Today I finished up the job, and extended the awning, I like it and it will be useful, a friend's son will be racing shifter karts at Barber Motorsports park next month so I mght park in the paddock next to them. Now I'm trying to find a source for switch labels, and I found the 24" amber LED strips for under my entry steps, I'm addicted, thinking of doing the basement storage bays, and maybe my closet and kitchen cabinets on automatic switches,

Today the 8' warm white LED strip arrived, VERY different light compared to the white under my awning, it looks like I have sunshine escaping from under my bed, I wired it to my courtesy lights.

I ran a strip of 12v white LED strip lights down the slide topper roller storage piece. Also a short piece across the outer end of the door topper. FWIW those 12v LED strips can be cut at the copper bars that are every 4" or so. scrape the covering off and solder a small pair of wires to the copper strips.

Geez this place is great... This LED light strips is exactly what I'm looking for,, Nice job Manuel B ! That under awning lighting is exactly what we need,, along with maybe the strip under the steps,, as we take the 4 legged kids out after dark... Sure would have been nice to have a little more light when we camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in the AZ desert a couple months ago....

VERY NICE IDEA MY Wife has a hard time seeing at night need to do something to help her out also.

I can't get a good photo of the 2 amber step lights but I really like them, I wired them to the amber light that was already under my Quicky steps and removed the incandesent bulb, the other night I saw light coming through my bathroom window, I went to the door thinking we had a full moon rising but it was my awning light, at first I thought I should of bought the warm white but now I realize the color is like moolight, perfect, the warm white inside around the bed brings out the warmth of the oak, now I want to convert my ceiling Thinlites.

Manuel, can you take a picture without using flash? That way we can see how much light you really get.
