Why doesn't my RF inline dimmer activate LED strips when powered by a car battery? Answered

I built a 12VDC, 2A lighting system in my truck topper to run off my engine's battery and it works fine unless I add an inline RF dimmer and then it doesn't respond. When the same system is powered by a separate transformer that receives 120VAC and provides 12VDC, 3A the RF dimmer works fine. Any idea how to solve this problem?

The system is built with these parts:

RF likes to travel on common wiring...

I read some of the reviews on amazon and it looks like it might be the problem with the RF dimmer being junky.

Unless you have a wiring problem there is no reason why I won't work.
