Go to any Lowes or Home Depot or even Walmart I would think. The dimmer switch plugs into your outside 110v outlet and the rope lights plug into it. The one I have has a sliding dimmer control on it and it also comes with a remote control so you can turn the lights off or on from inside the coach or wherever.

There are these great little clips that go inside the channnel that enable you to "hang" anything. We generally use them to hang our Nascar flags, but unless you're trying to dry your TV, they'll hold anything.

Available anywhere! And yes...ropelight is the best...someone's gonna come out with a bug-version soon- I can "feel it"!

I've never tried to roll up ropelight in my awning, but just saying that makes me wanna go..."hummmmmm". Anyone?

I've always wanted to hang lights from our awning, but it is an A&E automatic unit and, even if there were slots to hang them from... the slightest wind and up goes the awning. I hang xmas strings of lights from fences or trees if available. And we have rope lights that we put on the ground. They give nice light. I have them on a timer, but think I will get a dimmer with the inside remote. I like that option....

I think your forgive for not hanging lights Judy. I would hate to see them all rolled up in your awning. Have a great day
