I just ran an extension cord up to the power adapter and sat the brick bring on top of my camper. worked fine, and easy take down and setup.

Cool. That was going to be my solution too. I usually carry a ladder with me anyway... Was just curious if you found a better way

I threw mine out after they failed last year, water got into the white control box.

What about mounting the white control box inside the orange plastic done where the porch light is? Take the bulb out, fashion a tap or take the end off and use the leads to power the white control box with DC, then a lead out to the strip mounted on the side of the trailer under the canopy?

I am sold on LED lighting for my TT. Did the same mod as Mikeyonline and have a couple more to do before I'm done.

More light Ideas

I purchased "mini" LED rope Christmas Lights @ Mernards, They are small enough to slide into the extra track on the awning tube. The transformer is very small & unplugs,( lights plug into 110) so you can roll up the awning, no issues. I choose BLUE lights no bugs!

The double sided tape has lost it's grip. I thought I saw somewhere in this thread about using 3m 1/2" automotive tape to fix the problem. I did a search but couldn't find anything, could someone point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Most auto parts stores have double sided tape for attaching car trim. This tape is very sticky and durable.

This or I found mine at Lowe's hardware. Just need to order another set of lights... The set I bought ended up getting installed inside the camper, above the slide out and tapped into the switch for the main area.

Thanks for getting back to me, do you or anyone else know if you have to do the whole length of the light strip or can you get away with just doing every foot for the whole length. I have no experience with the automotive tape.

You should do the whole run. If you just do every few feet, dirt and water will work in and they will just peal off again.
