Well, the Federal Budget office approved the purchase today.
I guess we'll be able to find each other at the CG by looking for this Forum decal or the LED lights lol

Thanks for all the helpful posts.

Doug

I have a set of warm white, non color changing. It appears that most here are going with the color changing sets which have a different hook up than mine. I have + and - power only going to mine with two leads as opposed to the 4 leads that seem to be common with the color changing sets. My set has a DC Coaxial plug which I solder a male and female end on the 2 x 12 leads that run up my arms. There are 4" tag ends that I simply plug into one another and that's it, lights ready to go!

Should I or someone else hit the retract button they unplug themselves and no harm is done.

The wire is run down the arm and I drilled a hole at the base to run it into my unit and snaked up to a dimmer switch which is by a 12V supply. Toughest part was securing the wire to the arms without interferring with them and keeping it hidden.

You all are AWESOME! We were just at "that big retail camper place" over the weekend. After spending an HOUR trying to get someone to explain what was including in this set (see link) and what the actual cost was going to be, I decided to give up, come home, and look around the forum for any alternatives.

Can you believe that price??? WOW! Thanks for this post!!! Definitely going for one of your suggestions instead. Has anyone mounted theirs on the awning arms?

Oh honey, wouldn't those lights look great on our camper, no more lights hanging from the awning! I was perfectly happy hanging a few lights from our awning but NO, you guys had to open another can of worms. DW saw this thread and ordered them-Ok, I like them too. Still can't decide on a tube or trailer mount.

Like others-- DW saw this post with the awning lit up & the order went in. I may get another set to mount on the TT & put on another sw. One set on for mood, second set on for making munchies or playing cards. GREAT IDEA / POST / MOD Larry

I ordered mine and they should be here Thursday.
I am assuming I have 1 connection at the end of the lights, then one at the controller.
The plug in will have to be on the side of my TT, sheltered by the cover.
What are you guys thinking about protecting the connections from water?
Just wondering out loud here as I anticipate installation.

I guess you could always tape everything up at the controller and just try to zip tie the connection at the lights so it's under the awning
I would like to get the connections waterproofed so I just have to pull out the wiring, snake down the awning arms and plug in.
I don't want to have to tape and re-tape each outing.

I ordered one today too, using Amazon rewards to buy it, NOT crab revenue. :hihi: I just hope I picked the right one, there are several choices mentioned here and they all look alike to me.
