LED Strip Replacement

Just finished replacing the junk LEDs that came on the trailer. Replaced them with a RGB+WW strip with remote. I ended up splicing into the factory porch light wiring in the forward pass through instead of at the top of the awning like I've seen others do. This allowed me to mount the IR controller inside the storage compartment and not have to worry about water proofing it. It also required extending the wiring. The factory strip is two wire and the new strip is five (22 gauge I believe). I soldered in a length of 18/5 thermostat wiring and made all the connections inside the storage and ran the IR sensor out the bottom of the awning rails. Cleaned up rather nicely.

Excuse the pics...taken with an Iphone and evidently the uploader decided to rotate them. I'll fix it eventually, but have to head to work soon.
