I have an 18' awning - with these kits coming in at 16.4' - would it be a problem to center them - or would the plug end cause an issue when rolling up?

My friend who has had these on his awning for nearly 2 years has his centered and then covered with clear shipping tape. He hasn't had a problem yet. One other thing to consider is installing on the TT itself, just below where the awning rolls up. This would allow you to have light even when the awning is rolled up. I ordered two sets. Just in case I decided to put them in both places. If I don't, I think I will hang them in the bunkhouse. The grand kids should love them.

remote functions?

Anyone figured out the remote. Mine are still in the roll, but I have been playing with the remote. Mine when set to flash, only flash white. Then there are the "DIY" buttons. Anyone figured those out yet?

I prefer it on the awning - just wasn't sure if the "plug" end would cause an issue to the awning when rolled up. I saw in the video that the lights aren't big enoug to cause an issue, but the plug part looked a little bigger.

I guess they don't need to be centered, but it would sure look better. Also, if I buy another section, when they splice, are they flush, or would there be a gap?

is there anyone with some left ove sections that want to sell some scrap pieces?

In reading one of the customer review remarks I saw some comments on the DIY buttons:

Quote:
The DIY buttons on this unit are a little flakey. I was able to activate them by pressing the power key to turn the LEDs off. Then press it again to power up. Press one of the DIY keys. Press and hold one of the RED, GREEN or BLUE down keys until you start to see a color change. Now you can control the color wih all six up and down buttons. Once you have the color you want, press the DIY key a second time. This locks the color to the key. Note: you cannot use the two brightness adjust buttons on DIY colors. If you need various brightness levels of the same color you have to program these using several DIY keys.

I also found this concerning the DIY buttons.
Programming DIY Keys

Press DIY button to be programmed.
Adjust desired color using the arrow (Up/Down) color buttons.
Press same DIY button to set its color.
Once programmed, pressing the DIY button brings the connected RGB LED strip to the set color.

also found the answer to flashing in white. Apparently they all flash only white.

Houston, I have a problem! Got my lights yesterday and plugged them in just now and they don't work. Checked and re-checked the connections and the only thing I can figure out is that it is either broken or the controller battery is no good. I suppose it could be some sort of "operator error". Any thoughts?

The YouTube video posted earlier in this thread had some flashing in multi colored lights - looked like disco lights.

I have a 12' awning and would be happy to send you the remaining cut off section. I could probably just stick it in an envelope and send it regular mail. No charge to Jayco "buddies"
