not sure... but I bet it helps the lifespan of the lights themselves.

Red face RV girl needs help with connecting led wires and remote problem

I read most tips and appreciated all the good advice to prep me for mounting my led strip to the gutter under awning. Purchased this RGBWW waterproof kit from Supernight on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1). Since my 2013 Jayco 308RETS is under warranty, drilling a hole into my camper was out of the question. I envisioned the set mounted under the gutter of my 18' awning, bought an extension cable from Amazon (http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) to run from top of awning to under the camper that would then be connected to the remote controller which is connected to DC adapter that is in a Sockit box attached to an extension cord. I bought the 3M auto molding tape. When testing the led roll of lights I quickly figured out the RGBWW is based on 5 wires/5-pin and the extension is 4-pin and can't locate a replacement extension cord. I didn't test the remote (should have). Mounted the strip as the tips suggested and realized how happy I was not to trust that tape that came with it as it quickly came off. Once all was done 2 things were issues. First is the connection from the led strip to remote controller is not fit correctly and looses connection easily. Secondly the remote doesn't work.

So does anyone have some tips to help this RV girl to get her lights working?

I purchased 5 color/pin extension cable/wire from Amazon tonight (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I envision cutting off the connector from the LED strip's wires and joining them to the extension cable/wires somehow. Not sure if that is a good idea but it is the only one I have right now. Once a connection is run to the Sockit waterproof box (http://www.amazon.com/Weatherproof-O...rds=sockit+box) that will hold the remote control connector and DC power supply the connection problem can be remedied by securing the connections with tightly applied electrical tape. How can I connect the led strip's connection to the wire without having the male and female connections already attached to the extra wire I just purchased once I cut it to size to run down under the camper? Are there any easy snap and connect gadgets out there that I can use and then shrink wrap the wires to the gadget to waterproof them? I don't know how to solder something. There is a product on Amazon that could be used on each end of my extension (http://smile.amazon.com/LEDENET-Need...d_rhf_se_p_d_9) but I'm still faced with same problem of joining/connecting each colored wire to its counterpart.

Because the remote is defective leaving me to buy a new one and I do like to control things with my iPhone, should I buy the LEDENET remote control system with the MI-Light wifi bridge (http://www.amazon.com/Controller-con...ontroller+wifi) to replace the standard remote controller that is known not to have much range?

Please help me figure out how to overcome these issues.

We bought a used 23J that came with these lights on the awning. They work great but if you are looking at these to install or have them already, don't let the power adapter or control box get wet or you're be looking for another one on Amazon.

I am on here today looking at ways to hard wire the lights into 12 volt to avoid the headaches of having to deal with an exposed adapter and IR box. Some good tips and ideas to be had.
