Joe.....you dirty old man....I think there might be a motive behind those changing colors inside!

Nice job....I have some coming on Tuesday to put under the passenger side of the coach. I also might install some like you did under my awning. I like the idea of the two zone remote.

Yes, you can get white only, or the RGB type which gives you any combination of colors, or just white!

Deb said I had to give you something to do to get you out of her hair for a while!

What Doc said .....
We too have been looking at what to do about some additional lighting ...
however our awning base is attached to the bus ... not the slide ... and our slide comes out almost 2 feet .... so appears we have to come up with another plan ... Jackie want to do the hang'y thing off the arms ...and its a bit cheezy IMO .... but that would be a put up take down thing ... so we're working on plan C ... or D maybe
Nice work Joe .......

Hal, why can't you just put the lights on the slide like we did?

Yes you can. Just bypass all the florescent stuff and connect straight to the 12v switched wires.

Hubby purchased the lights, but we're trying to decide how we'd like to wire them.......permanently by drilling a hole (YIKES!) through the sidewall near the awning to bring the plug inside......or just plug it in when we camp and run the cord down along near the awning arms? We have two slides on the drivers side, but none on the passenger side of the coach. Those of you that have drilled holes.....how do you know to avoid any internal wiring in the walls? We wouldn't want to hit anything! Thoughts??

I just drilled VERY SLOWLY through the outside wall, stopped when the bit penetrated the wall, moved it it until it touched the inside wall, then drilled on through. You will be able to feel any wires inside the wall if you're careful!

I installed the same set on my RV last October. Wired directly
to 12v. They work great. I did run a small bead of high quality clear silicone on the top and bottom of the strip to keep water off the adhesive
