I left the step light on the original switch and moved the awning strip to a wireless dimmer switch. I placed the wireless switch right next to the door. It works great!

This is what I used:

We got to use the switch MOD this past weekend and they worked great! It was nice having the dimmer on the awning light since they are such a bright white. Plus having the option of the step light on without the awning light was nice too!

I unfortunitly didn't take any pictures. The switch requires you to hook a positive and negative to the input of the switch and the positive and negative from the awning lights need to connect to the output of the switch, so I had to find them in the mess of wires.

behind the control panel I found two positive leads connected to the output of the switch, one to the awning light and one to the step light. There was also a bundle (4-5) of white ground wires.

1) First I had to find out what which hot lead went to the awning lights and separated that one out. I left the step lead attached to the switch.

2) Once I had separated the awning positive lead out it was easy to find which one of the ground lead were in the bundle went to the awning. I undid the bundle of ground wires and with a meter, I found the lead that was the actual ground wire.

3) At this point I knew the positive lead going to the awning strip, so I connected that to a 12v positive source. Then I touched each one of the negative wires that were originally in the bundle to ground until the awning lights came on. Now the negative wire was found. I then rebundled the negative leads, leaving the lead going to the awning out, but added the negative input lead to the new switch to the bundle.

4) I attached the new switch's positive input to the power lead going to the original awning switch, so it still goes through it's original fuse in the power center.

4) Now you just connect leads you identified going to the awning strip to the output of the new switch.

Just be careful removing the control panel since there is a ton of wires going to it.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Next mods:
1) Add a USB outlet in the bedroom.
2) The DW saw a nice hinged cover over a control panel on a new trailer and would like one over ours.
3) She also has a hard time seeing the labels on the dark control panel, so some type of lighting for it.

I didn't write down the manufacturer or model we saw this cover installed in, so if anyone has info on it or something similar, please let me know.
