^ 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
HERK PUT THIS IN YOUR LIBRARY.
Thank you for the picture on the controller reset procedure. Glad it worked for you!
Question for you...What all does the reset do? Does it just reset the controller back to the factory settings or does it take out the features like jump, flash ect?
Although my LED's are working fine now, maybe this would also work to reset the DIY 1-6?
I have not played with mine much yet.
TIA,
crunchman

Actually the reset did not work for me. The supplier thinks my problems is with the actual LED light strip.

The reset sets the controller back to factory defaults.

I am sorry, I re-read your post and I thought you said it worked. Thanks for the info about the remote.
Hope your boat from Hong Kong gets here quickly for you.

Bug Light

On our Crusader 270RET, the bug lite is right at the end of our awning, which is right over the door..with that said, I took all the stuff out of the light fixture and replaced it with the little white box, the ant. wiring and the DC lead tapped into the wiring, which is controled by the switch on the interior..The ant. lead sticks out a small hole that I drilled and caulked, along with the LED Wiring lead I also drilled out and caulked...there is a small amount of wiring from the light box to the LED;s, by placing a Ty-Wrap achor pad, you can hold that down along with the Ant. Lead done the same way..I know a picture is worth more that words...plan on finishing that up this morning..right now its 37 degrees here in Dallas, GA...winters back..

Got home today to the project materials. Had in my mind that the install would be easy by mounting below awning with routing the wiring down the power awning channel and entering the interior at that spot.
However, I can't find where the awning wires enter the RV. By all views, it should be under the dresser, but I can't get access to the area unless I'm missing something. Is anything removable from what you see or do you have any suggestions?

Ready to start this install ALMOST...

After reading 111 pages of comments and suggestions on this project I have the materials in hand and am ready to start making it happen.. I just have one question (at this time) left to resolve. I have decided to mount the strip on the trailer (under side of the awning) vice on the awning roller. Where are you installing your lights? On the underside of the awning / drip rail facing down or just under the lower edge of the awning/drip rail on the aluminum trailer side facing out? Hopefully my picture will explain my question..

I mounted mine on the bottom of the rail that holds the awning material.

Thanks OC....I am with Adony......just where on the underside works best. My LED lights came in, and ya know.....the adhesive is kinda sticky...but is it sticky enough to stay there during hot temps?
