Yet another LED Strip under awning howto

So, I have searched the forums to perform this mod. I have purchased the amazon kit https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Then I also got the splitter so that I can cut the roll into 2 strips. I am looking at making a hole under the awning right down the middle. My camper has a cabinet right behind that and I can then wire the stuff cleanly. I am actually looking at getting 12V power from the light above the dinette.

So, I have 2 questions:
  1. Do I need to take special considerations when I make the hole in the aluminum siding? I had a fiberglass camper before and I don't know why I get the feeling that aluminum siding is composed differently as a wall and maybe there is something behind it?
  2. My roll of LEDs came with 2 adapters. It seems that one is to hook up to power and the other to connect another strip to it (extend it). Can I just cut the LED roll in half and use each of those connectors to get power from the splitter?

I'll try to post pictures of what I'm asking.

Please delete this thread as I posted it again. When I was trying to add pictures to this thread, the system suddenly said that it didn't exist. Sorry for the confusion.
