Awning Lighting

I was initially nervous to drill holes in too, but after really checking things out, doing some mods and looking at the holes jayco has drilled, I see no difference in the holes I put in over the holes they've made. The only difference, I'll be a little more generous with the sealant I use.

I ordered a second set. I think I am going to put one on the awning tube and one on the sidewall below the awning.

I think I'll do the same later this summer.
That way you have best of both worlds.
Are you going to do anything special to keep adhesive from letting go at some point?
Maybe a 1" strip of Eternabond Tape on each end?

My buddy who has had his up going on almost 2 years simply bought some clear shipping tape. He said it is holding up well. He was just down last week and he says it is still in place. His is on the awning tube.

Looks great, thanks. Which kit did you actually purchase and what color is in the first picture, blue? I'm assuming that white would be the brightest color since it requires all the LED's to be on at the same time.

I have two of the sets linked in a post in this thread and plan to install them on our campers in a week or two. I may buy an extension cable because it looks like you can run a cable through the same path that the wire for the power awning runs along the arms.

This is the one I bought.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ASHQQKI/..._M3T1_ST1_dp_1

$26.98, looks like the same components as the $38 ones.

$30.01 including shipping.

Bought a set of these as well, Abco Tech Waterproof 150 Color Changing SMD5050 LED Lighting Strip Kit, should be here by the middle of the week.

Thanks for suggesting these, looks like it is exactly what a lot of us where looking for
