I will most likely just plug it in with an extension cord.
UPDATE:
I received my LED light strip yesterday (Apr 18th) that is 8 days from Hong Kong. I can really complain about that.

PROBLEM:
On the shake down test the light strip didn't work properly.
The blue LEDs on the strip are always ON when there is power to the unit.
^ Oh look the sad emoticons are blue, how apropos!

STEPS TO RESOLVE:
I contacted the eBay seller. After some back and forth troubleshooting the eBay seller sent me the reset procedure for the 44 Key LED strip controller (part# 073-004). NOTE: You won't find the part# on the controller.
I will post the rest procedure below.
For me the reset did not work.

Form this the dealer is concluding that the fault must be with the strip. The have offered to send me a new LED strip at no charge. I said sure.

I am now in wait mode again

Here is the reset procedure

Led light operation

Found out the hard way, when checking the install, be sure it is DARK outside, the controller does not like SUNLIGHt and will not work...almost ripped the whole install out before some really smart PHrog got me back on the right track..Line of Sight on the Controller...got to be able to see the Transformer Sensor...

The issue is that moving parts need lubricated and almost all automatic transmissions have a pump drive by the engine, so no running engine no lubrication to the output trans bearing. You go towing, even in neutral and you're spinning these parts and they'll fail.

Stick shifts don't have pressure lubed transmissions so it's not an issue. Most 4X4s have transfer cases that can be put in N and then the trans won't spin and they are lubricated like a manual trans so it's not an issue.
