    I'm wanting to fit an led strip light to the side of van for when we're sat under the awning on a night.
    Im not sure what would work or give out enough light.
    It has to be a neat light as my awning is one that is built in to the side of the M/H so can't even sit on the bottom of the awning box.
    Any ideas or pointers that would work and looks neat so I can order one

    What van ?? My awning is built in on my Autotrail but have a LED strip light along the length of it.
    Many other funsters have them fitted as well, so there is often a way..

    We have an auto trail with the recessed awning and would be very interested in how your led strip is fitted and wired could you advise please.

    I know the saying 'If you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all' but this takes it to a new level !

    I think that @Techno did a similar job complete with pictures. I'm trying to work out the best way of wiring it all before I go ahead

    I just bough a 5 metre roll of waterproof led's and using the sticky backing that it came with glued it just below the awning.
    I fed the wires in to the top of the old awning light via a wee hole which I subsequently sealed up with a tiny blob of sikaflex
