Its very easy, especially if your wires are in the awning mounts vs. up at the top. I like the option for it being very bright sometimes and dim others vs. full time dim. We played cornhole by the awning lights and wouldnt' been able to if they tape dimmed.

Granted my taped led's are less bright, but the idea of having amber instead of bright white was that I would attract less bugs at night. Since my trailer is parked at home and not at a campsite, I can only say that compared to before, I see less bugs under my awning now. Plan on taking it out soon to see if I was correct...

Soooo, you got any tips on installing that tape? Is it sticky enough (as it appears in one picture) that I can climb up the ladder, run a few feet, let it hang, climb down, re-position the ladder, climb back up, repeat process? I was afraid I would have to build some sort of scaffolding or have my wife on a second ladder and hand it off to her.

Be sure to report back.
I HATE the bug party.

Exactly....No scaffolding needed.

Awesome idea..

After fighting the bugs this past weekend under my awning, I will try anything and this idea seems the easiest. Any chance you could share brand and where you purchased this tape? I can only find it sold in cases. Thanks.

I am very interested in doing this, but I am also very curious to see how long the adhesive will hold the tape on. Will this be something I need to re apply every season, or more often?

It's pretty sticky! It is intended for use in electrical components and gets exposed to very high temperatures and tough conditions. I would think it would stay there until you took it back down (which you can do, the adhesive stays on the tape). It's pretty tough stuff. I'll be putting mine up this week if it ever stops raining in the evenings!
