    I have removed the old awning light to be replaced with a new Labcraft Astro LED strip
    Behind it I found a 15mm hole drilled for the small 12v wires, the hole is much bigger than required and filled with a permanently flexible sealant
    It looks like plumbers mait but feels a bit more chewing gum like
    Just out of interest does anybody know what it is likely to be...Thanx :Smile:

    probably the same stuff the rest of the van is sealed with.

    I assume you will replace the awning light but if not you could trim the sealant and stick a plastic trim cap over it

    I haven't seen this type of sealant anywhere else on the van it is very tacky...
    I am going to back fill the hole with Sikaflex before fitting the Astro LL2 :winky:
