As long as you get the surface good and clean I can't see it being a problem. Mine came with genuine 3M double stick which is what nearly every body molding on your vehicle is affixed with. MIne will be going below the gutter, but like others, I never tow it.

Once you have the area cleaned and dried, then wipe down the area with rubbing alcohol. Most of 3M adhesive work best with an alcohol prep or with a “primer” designed for the adhesive.

Same here. ALthough I'm going to mount them so I don't need to roll the awning out to benefit from the lighting, I'm not 100% sure exactly where I will permantly install them. I plan on taping them up with scotch tape until I know exactly where I want them to go, and them using the supplied 3M tape to permantly adhere them.

We are going with the tube. That way we have some aiming ability to point them where we want. Under the gutter they point one way and that is it. If it is to windy to have the awning out we are usually inside anyway. But as inexpensive as they are, we did see them on an RV at a show this weekend under a gutter so we might get a second set if we see happy campers that way here.

I had the same thought, as cheap as they are, if they hold up well on other people's when towing I could easily order another set and set them up under the gutter. But if I put them there I would hard wire them into the TTs 12V system. .

Well I ended up installing them on the awning tube. If others have success with them staying on under the gutter after towing I may add another set there later so both options would be available. As mentioned they are not that expensive, and my Amazon rewards points bought this set!

Darn you guys! Now you got me thinking about ordering a second set to put on the awning tube. I was happy with them under the gutter, but.....................
