I added the ribbon lights to our awning earlier this year. I ran the wire up the awning arm (electric awning with the scissor arms) and up to the roof, over to the the refrigerator vent and down the refrigerator vent. From there I picked up 12-volt from the wires that power the fridge. I then used double sided tape and stuck the controller to the vent cover for the fridge. I stuck the IR sensor for the remove out of one of the vent holes. I like the set up. However, after using it this past week I had a problem with the lights themselves. They have a solder connection every 3 LEDs, it looks as though I cracked one of those on the install and half the set started doing crazy things and finally quit working on the last day. I will see if I can heat it back up and fix that some way. If you do install them, don't unroll them from the roll they come on until you install them and then don't unroll the whole thing, just a little at a time and stick them to the surface as you go. Hopefully I can fix mine without having to replace them.
