Awning lights question

Hi all. We are new at this RV thing. We bought a rope light with a plastic holder track that goes in the slot on the awning roller. Question is, do we need to remove the light and holder track when we roll up the awning? Thanks.

For temporary (i.e. rolling it up when you leave to sightsee or at bedtime) you'll be ok. We've done this. Wouldn't do it long term though as it'll put a noticeable ridge in the lower end of your awning fabric...sorta like an undersized coat hanger leaves the little stretched out bumps on the shoulders of polo shirts.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

This one you can leave rolled up all the time as it's very flat. Easy to install via the self adhesive strip on the back of it.

You don't have to, but if you leave them on they will stretch out the fabric and possibly tear it. If you want rope lights, your best bet is that new flat LED that sticks, otherwise, get some globes for brighter lighting. Happy RVing!
