Haven't put mine up yet, still trying to figure out where to install them, leaning toward on the awning tube.

Careful, then you won't be able to use it with the awning closed. Mine is my only porch light, so I need to be able to use it with awning in...

For those that have a manual awning and installed the lights on the camper instead of the awning tube... how are you running the wires? I am pretty nervous about drilling holes in the side of the camper.

well we installed it on the camper and like everyone else here the 3m tape that came installed on the lights failed. Went out at night to take a look at them and the lights were just hanging there.

As for the wires, I'm just going to run an extension cord up to the power adapter and either velcro the power adapter to the awning arm and place it on top of the camper, haven't figure that out yet.

Well we took the X23B out this week-end, for the first time this year, and I'm sad to say the awning lights I bought a year ago no longer work. I replaced the remotes' battery, but no go. Even the DW was disappointed!

Oh well, just got on amazon and ordered another set!

glsimms - thats disappointing to hear. I am putting a set of lights on now. I plan on putting blue under the awning and white on the awning tube. I am still looking at where to tap into the camper but it will probably be back at the end near the gutter. That area goes right into where the bunk lighting is. For the white lights on the awning, I'm leaving a connector that can be powered once I set up and removed for when the awning is rolled up. Do you know what failed on your lights?

I think it was the end connectors on the light strip looked like it had some corrosion on them, even though these were supposed to be "waterproof"......

Broke in the trailer this weekend and installed the lights while we were at the campground (go to love the raining season in MI). Lights are awesome.

Looks good Mikey!!! I am thinking of doing the same thing... How did you run the power and signal wire?
