Drilled the holes out yesterday, painted the spacers black and reassembled with stainless steel 1/4" bolts and lock nuts. Looks 100% better, thanks for the suggestion.

WNY Bullet, you asked about this some time ago but I did not see a follow up. Our Impact 351 is wired the same way and I was thinking the same thing if itís not too much of a headache.

I guess I could roll the awning up one wrap and then the material would block the lights, but thatís not my preferred solution.

I did this on my 326srx. I had a spare switch in the panel so I disconnected the step and amber porch light from the awning lights so they are independently controlled. Was pretty easy since I had an empty switch in the panel.

I think that is what is holding me off on this mod, I don't have a space on my panel to mount the switch. I would have to mount the switch over or under the panel.

Unless you want to be able to have both on at the same time in the future you could install an on-off-on or three way switch where up is the awning lights and down is the step light. The switch should be the same size as the current one.

I decided to buy a wireless remote setup with dimming capabilities that I will use on the awning LED strip and leave the step light connected to the rocker switch on the control panel. The remote is supposed to arrive today, so hopefully this weekend I can find the time to install. It will be nice to be able to dim the awning lights when we want light, but don't want to light up the whole campground.

I separated the step light and awning LED strip yesterday. What a PITA...

Not only did I have to find the hot (+) side but I also had to find the ground wire going to the LED strip in order for the switch to work.

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:
