I installed a similar RGB kit with a radio frequency controller instead of an IR controller, I used clear hot glue every couple of inches to secure it in place. the double stick tape on all led strips is usually pretty bad

Any suggestions on how to remove the OEM strip that has died? Guessing they are just stuck up with adhesive tape backing so should come off by just prying up one end and pulling.

Best way?

[QUOTE=Bassdogs;440045]Checked them out on Amazon and seems there are a ton of negatives concerning the adhesive tape not holding. What was your experience using these lights under the awning?QUOTE]

For the price difference you can buy a roll of 2 sided automotive tape and still be money a head. that is what I did.

What I did was cut the end off the power puck run the wire along the awning arms and at the valance of the bottom of the RV put an accessory plug. It was really very simple and easy to do. Or you can go to Radio Shack and buy a 3.5mm?? barrel plug just make sure when you wire it in that the center is +.

On my RV I didn't use the adhesive tape and just slid into the channel. On my shop I have 2 of the strips and haven't had any adhesive problems in close to 2 years. I also know several other people that use these and no problems with adhesive.
