That idea is not logical: "flexible tube type that will fit in the awning rail slot". That slot is pre-occupied with awning material. If that means the awning tube slot, it will not work either. That is shaded continually.

it made sense apparently a whole lotta sense to this company:

amongst RV'rs there is an unexplainable attraction to awning lites, you just frankly are not an RV'r if you haven't at least once considered getting some

"Typical Illumination from Dawn to Dusk" I don't know that I would need the light in the day time. Does not have a way to store the power for night use.

I am guessing they work just like the solar powered landscaping lights. They charge during the day using a solar panel and small battery to run the lights at night. The ad does say the solar panel mounts easily on the roof or on the ground, not under the awning.
