You got it! Cut on the center of the line so you can splice if needed.

Awesome, thanks! Also do I cover the cut end with anything? Electrical tape?

I would heat shrink it if possible, just something to keep the water out.

I feel bad for you waiting that long. My first set arrived after about 2 days, I had to return them (think the power supply died after trying to splice a 4' section to the end), got my refund, ordered another set, and they should be there when I get home.

I did not but probably should have. I read somewhere that the gel coating (assuming that you bought the waterproof LED strips) is supposed to be sealed so that moisture cannot seep in,even after being cut. But i doubt they expected anyone to mount them to their camper awnings

Those don't look like the waterproof ones. Do they have a piece of "thick" silicone type stuff covering everything? If not, I wouldn't use those on the awning.
