Yep,
I tried to make sure I ordered through Amazon and a US supplier. I got mine in 2 days.
I had to cut mine and just folded a piece of electrical tape over the end and made one wrap around awning tube.
I also put one tie wrap at each end like other posters.

Best regards,
Doug

Like I said before, I installed mine last year. I made a mistake when I installed mine of unrolling it 2 or 3 times before I installed them. I apparently broke one of the connections. Half my set quit working. I tried the repair "clips" but they didn't like the waterproof coating even though I bought the ones for the waterproof. I also tried soldering the connection. Didn't work. I got tired of fighting it and I also wanted the 44-key remote since mine only came with a 22 or 24 key remote. I ordered my new set the other night from Amazon. My set just now also left SHENZHEN.:hihi: Guess they are all on that boat together. Not expecting delivery until May 10th - 19th. That is fine, not in that big of hurry anyway, another other stuff to do.

1) It's hard not to play with new toys
2) Delivery could take longer than expected due to Pacific storms :lightning:

Ordered mine yesterday! Apparently the new ones (2014) will come with this type of lighting. Yeah Jayco!
