LED Accent Lighting Mod with voice control

I was watching some YouTube videos of Newell coaches and noticed they had nice LED accent lighting under the sinks and cabinets etc that was controled by a tablet. I figured my Hurricane 35M could use such an upgrade, so I got on Amazon and ordered some RGB LED light strips, controllers and an Alexa echo dot. I spent part of the weekend installing the system under the counters and around the slides. So now I can control the lights via my smart phone/tablet or by saying 'Alexa, change the accent lights to magenta' etc. I set up two zones, one called Salon for the front and one called Rear. I also created a group called Accent that contains Salon and Rear. I can control the zones separately or as a group. I'm also in the process of wiring in a controller to allow me to control the cabin lights in the front, bedroom and closets via my smart phone or Alexa. I created a short walk through video and posted it to YouTube, please check it out.

Nice job and good video description of the mod! I've added some LED strips just above the big slide in LR and Kitchen; I have a wireless controller for mine.
