Awning LED Strip Quit Working

Hi all,

Just wanted to post this in case anyone is having the same issue. Recently I noticed the LED strip installed along the base of the awning was barely working. Upon inspection I noticed portions of the strip were cracked and discolored. I went ahead and bought a replacement LED strip from Walmart. I made sure to buy a 12V strip since that's the voltage of the existing strip. The strip I bought has 4x wires, black (12v) and red, green, blue. I tied the positive 12v wire into the black wire on the LED strip. I combined the red, green, and blue wires with the negative wire from the trailer and installed the strip onto the side of the trailer. Unfortunately, combining the RGB wires means I only get white light. I couldn't wire in the LED controller that came with the strip because it's integrated with the 120v transformer on the same board. You can also buy a controller on Amazon, but I didn't want to hassle with it.

Red, green, and blue light in equal amounts mixed makes white light. If you mix red, blue, and green paint equally, you will get black paint. You can only get multiple colors using dimmer controls. Or you can only power one or two colors.
