Does this style led strip fit into the slot on the awning tube like the 1st post those lights are sold out. I like your setup also but would prefer the lights in the awning tube Thanks Mike

I just received a new set of 5050's my last set would not stay up and Had begun to break down in a couple of areas . In my first set I had to remove the double side tape and replace it with 3 M's heavy duty double sided tape. Has anyone put up a set recently and had any trouble with the tape holding? Clark

Clean

Make sure you clean camper with alcohol before mounding lights.

I installed mine about 6 weeks ago with the factory installed 3M tape. Now after 500 miles of towing and temps up to 90* the lights are still holding strong.

This was my experience as well. Original 3M tape, 2 years, 6,000 miles.

Other Option

If you did not want to install on the tube, many installers are putting on the underside of the gutter rail, this way the lights work if the awning is rolled up, the wiring never has to be changed and you can permanently install the receiver in a waterproof location.

Just installed a second set, did order the 2nd one late at night and it was the wrong one! Will use one set (3528) for the outside kitchen and the 3rd set under the awning to match the 5050. Yes, had to order a 3rd set!

Long trip next week, so the lights (3m tape) will be tested on the road. (7hrs trip)

Only problem with the doubled up light strip is if there are two campers facing each other it could attract aircraft at night!

DEET does not repel Cessnas.
