Things that you need to do:
1) Cut the strip on the correct end using the built in jumper sections to the exact length you need. Not cutting there will cause the mis-cut section not to light.
2) Mount the light strip somehow to the camper or awning (using the strip that comes with double sided tape already attached; adding your own tape, or jamming it into the necessary slot.
3) getting 12 volt 1.2 amp power to the control box. This can be done by running a two wire (red and black normally) from a source like a 12 volt light fixture and wiring it to the short "pigtail" that plugs into the control box (supplied with mine).
4) OR if you want to plug it into an extension cord, buying the correct transformer (see below) and doing it that way.
