The double sided tape came started coming loose when we had a drastitic change in weather! The tape was coming off as I unrolled the light strip from the package, however most adhesive products have to be at a certain temp during application for them to adhere properly for 24 hours which I did not have dropping into 20's at night! I also cleaned with rubbing alcohol

So far I have done 2 strips one on the inside of the slideout room Inside the RV and one on the awning roller tube. Since the draw is very minimal I used small speaker wire going out the awning arm and a power plug under the aluminum valance of the RV.

I have a Jay Flight 19BH and I am going to attempt to install the LED strip on the bottom of the gutter rail. I am thinking of going thru the side to tap into power. I will try and take some pics as I go to post later. I hope it will be easy, but you know murphy's law....

Ive searched around from other sites and videos and I hope to get it right without damaging my trailer. We will see.

More to come

I just finished first strip under gutter. Install was very easy. Make sure you clean surface before installing. I used paint prep to clean surface. I drilled hole into trailer just under rear gutter. This goes into a panel inside trailer where I connected into the bed light socket. I also installed an RF remote which works great. The lights look awesome. Next step is a strip of blue on the awning tube. Good luck.

Seann, I see you have a awning room. Is your awning electric or manual?

Just bought a set for my X17Z. A mechanic who installs these every day was at the register and he gave me a few tips: The most important thing to do is to make sure the area is clean before you tape up the strip. He also recommended that you replace the tape that comes with it with 3m auto molding two sided tape available at any auto parts store. It works much better. He said there is no problem drilling through the camper to run the wire, just make sure you seal it with silicone.

Good tip on the tape. The strip I installed looks like it adhered nicely to the gutter. If it starts detacting, then I'll go with the auto molding tape which I know is very durable. Since the wiring is very low current, I used small guage which cuts down on the size of the hole drilled.
