Nice Job...

I am still using my ROPE LIGHTS from LOWES. They will probably last forever hehe. These are the 120VAC model and clips around my patio awning and is hidden by the railing. When we camp off the power grid I have a dedicated small 150WATT Inverter clipped into battery just for outside lights...

One of these days will go for something 12VDC LED and more permanent.

Also, could you please tell me where placed the LED controller (did you permanently mount it inside somewhere) and the RF receiver for the remote??

TIA for any help you can offer.
I had a chance to do a little more work on my LEDs this weekend, but did not accomplish everything I want to like connecting it to 12 volts. I did a few other modifcations to the TT over the weekend.

rtbreeves wanted some photos of how I mounted the power supply and controller:

The power supply is mounted under the stand next to the bed:



The controller is mounted in the lower corner (below the power supply):





Eventually I will tap into 12 volts, but it did not happen this weekend. I hope this helps you.

I really like that! We too have an Eagle and are in the market for awning lights. From the looks of it you don't have to take these down? I am wondering if you could let me know where you purchased the kit.

They are mounted on the side of the TT by double back tape that is already on the LED strip. I decided to remove that double back tape and use clear silicone. Others have mentioned automotive double back tape works as well.

I purchased the LED kit from Amazon. Here is the link:

Did I mention this is my FAVORITE thread in this forum?

So... just got my LED kit. I'll also mount to the gutter under the awning. I'm having trouble figuring what wires you ran down the side of your trailer. My IR/PS plugs right into the end of the strip. So did you get a 4-wire ribbon cable extension and run THAT down the awning channel?

I love your set up, OurJayco, and your pics of where you have the components mounted. I'm just trying to figure the best way to permanently mount the pieces inside, and have a removable cable or something outside that bridges from the LED strip to the PS inside my front storage hatch.

Thanks much!!
