Outdoor Lights

Our new rig only has the led lights under the awning but they are not very bright, hardly any light at night. What’s my bet option here? Install a brighter LED strip? Install other LED lights outside?

Put a strip on the roller.....they make an extension cord for the color changing ones....the roller ones won't hurt the awning when it's rolled up...

There must be a problem with yours. All that I have seen are too bright. Many here have complained of being too bright. Maybe there is a dimmer on yours?

LED's are naturally bright, if the rig is under warranty, take it back and demand that the dealer replace the light strip.
No need to add any additional lighting, just get those replaced.

I have the Solera Smart arm on my 270thle. The are buttons on the smart arm that will dim the lights.

Not sure if you have the same awning but you can look and see the controls on the front awning rail.

If I dim the lights and then turn them off with the inside switch and then turn on the inside switch again, the lights are still dim. I have to hit the dimmer switch on the awning rail.
