I'm thinking if the strips were installed on the side of the camper, just under the awning, then they might produce a more spread out, diffused light. Just me thinking, I have no idea if it's true.

cm, I'm thinking the same thing, and when the ato wning is extended, I'm hoping enough light will reflect off the awning to laccomplish what I'm looking for. Most likely will tape it in place and experiment before I actually attach it.

Without modifying the cords to connect them, I doubt you will forget to unplug them. The cords are pretty short. The plug is a very small 4-pin and has no locking mechanism. It would simply pull apart if you rolled it up. Problem is, the power cord and transformer. To make it a cleaner install, I would like to find a small wire to run down the awning arm and have the transformer and 110v wire hidden in a compartment.

Will post pics after I mess with this a few hours.

Awning Lighting

For $9 you can get either an 8' or 16' extension cable from Amazon (Sunrise Cables). I plan to run this down my arm and under the trailer, then come up through existing wiring paths. Transformer will plug up in a cabinet.

I think I'm going to order mine. Was there a consensus on which one was best to buy? I know a few models/brands where thrown out there.

If you want to have the ability to change colors you will be hard pressed to find a better kit than the one I linked in a previous post.

I had them temporally installed in our kitchen for a short time. I plan to put them on the awning tube this weekend. I can give a full review next week when we get back.

Make sure you get the 5050 LED and not the 3528 LED strips.

The 3528 are cheaper. But, they are not as bright and the different colors look multicolored up close.

I don't thin it was the last one... cause I just bought from the same link. LEDPRO. Must have re-stocked in the last hour. LOL
