Added L.E.D light strip on camper

just thought id share my led strip install as i cant bring myself to put holes in my camper , lol
i power it on and off from the outside light switch and so far so good except the wire channel
above the door was not supposed to have that much drop to it by the light but when i pulled off the rest of the self stick tape backing , i didnt have a hold on it and there it stuck but lights work great .

I just returned from camping last week and had mutliple individuals approach me about our LED lighting. Also, I didn't see any issues with bugs being attracted to them. At night, playing cards or just sitting around was very nice with the additional lighting. I am concerned about the moisture that sits inside the rolled up awning but so far haven't had any failures.

That is 49% of the reason why I put mine on the TT under the awning.
Plus I wanted to use mine even if the awning was not extended.

I put a strip on the underside of the gutter (white) and a strip on the awning tube (blue). I used a radio jack to connect the power feed to the awning tube. That way when it's time to roll up the awning, I can easily disconnect the feed and not rip out the wiring. Both light strips are on a single dimmer switch that is remote control. I had to drill one 1/8" hole in the side of the trailer for the 12V power. If you didn't know I drilled the hole, you wouldn't know it to see it.

ID:	14364I did the same, I went through my power awning wire hole and put the controller in the hatch. I also put a strip around the hatch to find the beer fridge at night.
