I was going to install on the awning tube, however my awning is about 3 feet longer than the lights. I wanted to center them on the tube but was afraid of rolling up the end clips into the awning. I didn't think it would look right not centered, so I installed mine on the TT itself. Along the bottom edge of the gutter. That way I have them even when the awning is rolled up. !0 minutes after turning them on the first time at the CG, I had 2 people stop!

Did you use just the supplied sticky tape?

Yes, but since I tried to install by myself, I had to restart one side a couple of times. Plus the weight of the control box and power supply pulled that end off. I did as a friend did, did and put about a 1 foot pc clear shipping tape at each end. One thing to remember about my setup. My TT never leaves the campground. Just from storage to site.

Well my lights are no longer in China, they are in Columbus, Ohio with this caveat: Possible delay in delivery due to arrival at incorrect carrier facility - who the heck knows what that means. Estimated arrival date May 29th. It better not take 37 days to get go 50 miles.

Just got mine from Shenzhen today! Ordered from Amazon on 4/10, so not too shabby. They work good and I can't wait to get them on the camper this week before our first trip out this weekend. Can't wait to see the look on our camping buddies' faces when we turn these bad boys on, lol! Only issue I have is my green and blue controls are reversed on my remote. Not that big of a deals since I don't plan on changing colors very much, just have to remember green is blue and vice versa.

FYI, I contacted a US seller of similar lights and asked a question concerning adding additional length of lights to the 5 meter strip. He informed me that it would likely blow the power supply, as that most places give you a power supply that is just enough for the 5 meter length. You can purchase a larger power supply and then add more length to the 5 meters. Also be aware that the controller and power supply are not water proof.

Mine came today,:hihi: and it has a 12 volt adapter wire ready to wire into the trailer 12v supply. Nice little bonus i had not seen. Also 2 weeks earlier than the estimated arrival date.

Well even though my lights got lost and delayed, they managed to arrive to. I'm not unrolling this set until I install and even then just a few inches at a time and i will make Monica help me.

Got mine installed today! I tied into a spare fused wire on the back of the converter and fused it to 5A. The IR controller is mounted in the rear storage compartment. I will do a write-up in the mods section.
