LED awning light question

I have acquired one of the LED light sets discussed in another thread. I am debating whether to mount them on the awning tube or just under the awning on the trailer so they could be viewed with the awning rolled up. I prefer under the awning but my concern is when traveling the strip would be exposed to wind and weather and could come loose. Please ease my concerns or justify them so I can make a decision! Which way should I go? How many went with theirs on the tube or under the awning?

I think you should change this to a poll

BTW, I wanted to go on the side of the camper, but SWMBO didn't like that idea and said awning tube. So needless to say, they are on the awning tube.

On the bottom of the gutter. But mine isn't towed so I am not concerned about flying off.

Has anyone towed any distance yet with them on the bottom of the gutter?

Had the same concerns, so I went with the awning tube. Also, would love to have them permanently mounted, but don't want to drill holes. Also was concerned that the light from the gutter would shine throughout the CG more than on the awning tube.

10 ft strip on my gutter, and 6 ft strip on my awning... Only 1 set will be on a time until I figure out where I like them.

First impression, the gutter is more useful when the awning is closed.

Have not driven with them yet.

Somewhat off topic, but it is an awning light question. I figure everyone is probably using the supplied power supply. If I want to connect to 12 volt and get rid of the power supply how do I do it? I thought about connecting it behind the fridge panel, but what wire would I connect to the 12 volt?
