Anyone installed LED strip on canopy

I'd like to install an LED light strip on my canopy rail like on the new Jayco. I want to cleanly install it with out any exposed wiring. Anyone done this or have advice.

I bought mine from Amazon and they are still working great 1 year later. Make sure you buy the ones that say "waterproof". If you pinch the ends, they do open, so I added silicone to complete seal the ends. I also went the entire length of my trailer and like the look much better than just under the awning.

Everything I have read tells me it is not recommended to attach these to the awning or awning tube. The pressure on them when they are rolled up will distort them.
