I bought the same set that Doug has the link to
Yes the color in the first picture is Blue. I wish I would have noticed the awning extension cable I would have ran my wires along side the other wires

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 am thinking about applying 3M automobile emblem adhesive to the ribbon light adhesive. It comes in different thicknesses and widths, sticks to practically anything that is cleaned well and is pretty durable.

The DW looked them over when I was about page 7 or 8 (1/2 way) in the thread and said "ya, they look ok, I will let you know when you can buy them".
Then I came across the installed photos and videos, showed her and it was "can they be here before our next trip if you order now? Yes? Order them".
So they are on their way. Ordered the 300 light $28.00 set.

Awning Lighting

All I can say about these things is WOW!

My brother came over today and we washed the TT today. We were going to install the led's on the awning but it was a little too windy for our tastes so we left the awning in.

Of course, the wind died down when the sun went in and my brother had already left. I opened the awning and strapped a bungee on day end of the awning tube to keep the lights in place. They're up, but the middle section loops down about two so I'm not even getting the full effect.

These things are bright and the color effects are awesome. I'm kind of partial to the slow color change/fade. I know we are going to get a LOT of questions and comments about these this season!

Absolutely. I like the fade option too. Just wait til you get on the campsite!
