DW wanted to hang the "other" lights as well. Good for comparison I suppose...

Hey guys. I got my two LED light strips today and I made a little video overview of them in action. I hope it helps some people and explains some of the features.

Thanks cm11599ps for putting together the video.
Looks like a pretty straight forward installation.
Mine should be here tomorrow.

Best regards,
Doug

Awning Lighting

I also have a set on the way thanks to the DW. I sent her the link while I am on a business trip and received a call from her saying they should be in next week. I guess she liked what she saw

Just got mine in the mail today.
They were the $26.00 set.
As far as I can tell, they are the same set and components.
Wiped the awning tube down with Acetone
Peeled off backing and started adhering to tube across the width, using the slot in the tube as a guide.
There was a solid line across the LED stripe every 3 LED's. I cut across the line as a test further down the excess strip to make sure I was to cut directly on the line. The remaining lights stayed on. So I then made my final cut to length.

The power cord just barely reached from my outside plug to LED plug.
I put a zip tie at each end of the LED strip to support the adhesive.
On the cut end, I covered the end with electrical tape and then made 1 wrap around the tube with electrical tape.

The RF sensor is a little weak, but it seems to work acceptably. I don't plan on doing a lot of changing of colors.

All done. Cool mod for $30 including shipping.

I'll wait for dark and see how it looks.

Just a note to everyone who is placing these on your awning tube. A friend of mine has had these on his awning tube now for nearly 2 years. he mentioned that the sticky tape didn't hold too well even after a good cleaning of the tube. He went out and purchased some clear shipping tape and placed it over the light strip. That was over a year ago and it is still holding up well he said. And his TT is stored at the beach so he gets salt air, high temps etc. just for everyones info if your sticky tape isn't holding like you want it to.

I also ordered the 26.00 set on Amazon, supposedly has more LEDs per meter then some other sets? They all look alike to me...


Also on edit I have a 18' awning so not sure how the 16'4 set will do with that, gonna be a bit short!
