I wish they would get here already. I really can't wait to get out in our home away from home for this upcoming Memorial Day outing.

So they are on their way. Ordered the 300 light $28.00 set.

Alright Crabman, you're in business.
I set up here in Albequerque, NM and noticed one of my green LED's is out. Luckily there is many colors to choose from :-)

Awning light

I ordered my light via Amazon April 04 and they arrived today. They were shipped direct from China from Lemonbest. I purchased the 300 LED waterproof set and they seem to work fine.

One confirming question. Can these lights be wired direct to the 12V circuits without the power supply. I noted the output from the power supply is 12V DC 6A so I assume so. Should I put a 6A fuse inline to protect the controller?

That would be my understanding Linn

Best regards,

I've got mine on the 12-volt power supply for the refrigerator. I ran the power wire up the awning arms up over the roof. You only see less than 2" of wire at the top of the awning. If you don't specifically look for it, you won't notice. I then ran it probably 2' across the top of the roof and down the refrigerator roof vent. I covered the wire with Eternabond tape so that it isn't moving around or get caught on anything. Once the wire was down the refrigerator vent I fastened the control box with 2 sided tape to the side fridge vent. I then just left the IR receiver sticking out about 1/4". Makes it a little harder to take the vent cover off and on, but in reality, how often do you really do that? Once or twice a year to clean it maybe. I didn't add an extra fuse inline figuring the line was already protected by the fuse in the camper, but I might add one so that I can fuse it fairly low and hopefully should something happen it would blow before taking out the fuse to the fridge.

I got my light set out and played with them in the garage today. They look exactly like the ones in Drfifes pic, different name but I think these are all similar and could even be made by the same outfit in "Shenzen, Goyongang, China". Not sure if I got that spelling right but its close. So are most folks mounting them right next to the utility slot on the awning tube?

This is Drfifes set
