Pictures of the wire run through the coach. You can fish the new wire in the same plastic protective cover as the wires for the awning motor.

I glued a 16' LED strip on my awning roller, using silicone. Worked fine and rolled up good. I left the plug at the end of the roller, and once extended, I plugged a wire into it, ran it down the lower leg (with a clip at each end to hold it in place), and plugged it into another plug in the generator compartment.

It worked really well, HOWEVER, on my current MH, I installed the same LED strip (again with silicone) on the side of the RV just under the awning. Why? Because with it on the awning roller, I could ONLY use it if the awning was open; with it on to RV itself, it can be used regardless of whether or not the awning is deployed.

This looks like the tape kind and is used in RV applications. The plug looks a little big. Anybody use this brand. It's a little pricey but it has lots of special effects.

So for automatic awnings do you disable that feature if you zip in the full shade ?

Just curious...

Yes, I disable the wind sensor when the full shade is zipped on. Usually have corners of shade staked out to make more room under awning.

Here is a thread that might help.

I put the LEDs on the coach under the awning. You can turn them up or down and it lights the whole patio area with a very pleasant light with the color of your choice.
