Adding LED Light strip

I am planning on adding LEDs along the RV awning area. I came across a product sold by RVLightning called Eco Leds the model is the RGB-1660RF. Has anyone purchased this model and have any comments.

I am seeking comments on a good quality led system with a RF remote and the capability of running LEDs from DC or AC.

I have the same ones.. only I got them on ebay for $30. Comes with a AC to DC plug and remote as shown. That price is ridiculous.

I've done exactly that, added them just under the awning. I set mine up so that when the awning is rolled up, I get a fair amount of light from them. But, when extended out about 14"-15" or so, that's when it really broadcasts light, IF I WANT IT TO. I don't bother people around us with too much light. That setup I got is completely dimable way down to almost not on.

Mine came with 120VAC power and, 12VDC so I could go either way. I tossed the 120VAC unit and wired it directly to the 12V. I do have the remote for dimming too. MY unit was sold at Camping World and other RV supplies centers. It's marketed by Dometic. It's a very, very nice unit and, it's extendable. I added three extensions to it to make a 16' long piece. Now, I have a considerable amount more money in it than I care to admit but, I was in the learning stage then about LEDs.

If I were to do it again, I'd take a whole different approach. And, I've done so with my "Under body" LED light strip. But, I got them through Amazon and, they're "waterproof" ones. They look really nice. But as far as the ones you're thinking of, can't help you with that particular brand.

A couple of us have the LED strips you could get at Costco , they change color and all that, our friend uses an inverter, I connected them directly to the 12 volt system as LED's are naturally 12 volts, stuck the remote wire out the side and it works flawless!!
I put ours on the bottom of the MH and over the step so we have lights there without using the outside light!
If you know an electrician they can get it on rolls!!

Putting an LED strip under my awning was a great upgrade. I ran a wire to the entrance light under the door. The strip was 16 feet long and was around$17 on Amazon. The double stick tape that came with it was useless so I bought some of the 3M red backed double strip tape you can get at auto detailers or Home Depots. It put out just the right amount of light. Not too bright, not too dim.

Have not purchased that specific model but have a few Eco-Led brand 1141 replacements.

ON a standard scale of 10.. That's the rating I give the company 10.. They are the best of all the LED lamps I have purchased.

But I've never purchased the rope lights or strip lights

My only complaint is not really a complaint.. They are also the most EXPENSIVE Led's I have.. but worth it.
