Got this LED Light Strip

Anyone have experience with these? I think it will be a small weekend project :

I was thinking of putting it underneath the awning. Since it has a real plug, I don't think I will need to do any wiring or drilling...maybe I ma wrong. I think Harvey the RV has outdoor outlets that I can plug it into when needed.

Since it operates on 12 vdc why bother with the power pack just wire it directly to your 12 V system. That way just one less hunk of junk you have to carry with you on trips..

Here is another LED strip light that is quite a bit cheaper.

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?

My OEM strip lights under the awning have died or have almost died since the first 2 foot immediately to the front side of my door still lights up. Am looking for something to replace the OEM strip with.

I haven't installed yet, but I'm going to put them under the trailer. I will probably use 3M double sided foam tape (or something like that) and / or a hot melt gun.
I'm def not going to trust using the backer tape on the role alone.

Here is my thread on how to change the white to color using an identical looking kit from Amazon for around $20.
