Indeed. Only one remote to keep track of now. Or lose. I’m guessing the new, integrated setup probably doesn’t have the seizure inducing, epileptic strobe mode that the older one has though.

Pressing the LED button in the center, turns it off and on without affecting the desired level.

The L.E.D. strand is located on the body side of awning, and it’s visible after extending the awning a foot or so.

Yay! We gots lights.
This is exactly the remote we have on our 2018 19. Neither it nor the awning nor the LED lightstrip have given us any trouble so far. And I have to say, the lightstrip is one of my favorite options, no regrets whatsoever. It is wonderful to sit outside at night with it on, and it doesn't bother anyone else who might be camped nearby. The illumination it provides is sublime. We do have to keep close track of the remote control, however, I'm way paranoid about losing it. In camp it sits on its little magnetic holder by the door, but while under way we put it in the drawer. Hope you enjoy yours as well!

$6 Awning Light

I have not had time to write this one up yet, but $ 6 will buy you a 5 meter roll (more than 5 yards) of water resistant LED strip lights for an awning light. The wires from the controller are just sitting there waiting to be used by the remote control. Use the strip inside or out or add an extra switch to switch between inside or out.
It will all be written up later in the month at the link below.

I would check all connections as I found mine had a wire that had pulled out. Luckily it was the orange wire that does not need to be hooked up.

I love it everytime I see a bundle of crimp connectors!

Not my preferred method of connecting wires, even though it is an industry standard.

I have gone through a bunch of solder and heat shrink so I know my connections are not coming apart.

O.K. this thread has wandered, in an interesting and useful way, but here's the happy ending to my little adventure. I found the receiver, under the white cover in the compartment above the bed, but that was not the key. Fooling around with different scenarios, I put the old battery back into the remote, and it started to work. The battery I had replaced it with was an MN27, which the hardware store told me was equivalent to the A-27 that came with the remote. Apparently it is not. I expect that the unit quit working because the battery terminal was slightly tarnished. Putting batteries in and out seems to have restored it to usefulness, as it now works with the old battery. I see online that Canadian Tire has the A-27, so just to be sure I’ll get a fresh replacement. Back in the light!

Yep Keeping a thread on the OP subject is a lot like herding cats.
