Are they falling off of the awning or just not working?

It is a long and tedious process, but my wife and I hand sewed our strip back on. We found that drilling a little pilot hole through the plastic of the light strip really helped get the needle and thread through.

Now thatís something I donít think I would have ever come up with. I donít think it will work on mine, they seem very brittle. I think I have spent to much time in the heat. But thatís a cool idea. Thank you

replace it with water proof LEDs with 3M backing tape....then run it under where the awning connects to the side wall of the trailer.
