They make awning light hooks for them. They are little plastic sliders. I have only ever seen them in white.

I have a strip of LED lights that adhere with stick backing and roll up with the awning. Easy peasy - works great.

I have those, but wanted something that could be taken down in a hurry. Kroger had little mini clips similar to these Mainstays Mini Clip, 8pk: Kitchen & Dining : Walmart.com
and I just clip the string of lights to the flap of the awning. Much faster!

My neighbor in Fl last winter installed this:

RV Awning Party Lights LED Remote Control Multi Color USA | eBay

I'm definitely adding one of these soon! Right now I have a white rope light that attaches to the awning pretty easily, but you can't roll it up in the awning.

We have these strap strips that slide into that slot in your awning tube. They have Velcro, so you just attach your string of lights to that. The Velcro straps stay with the awning as you role it up. They come in packages of 6 or 8 Velcro straps. Each strap is a inch wide by about 6" long.

Someone else's idea I saw and liked. They used the clips that are used to secure name badges. Clipped them to the awning flap. You can buy a whole bag of just the clips at an office supply store pretty cheap.

Clothes pins also. Plastic ones though, sometimes it rains.
