I see everyone is using the 5050 lights but what guage wire are you using to get the power to them and what is the length of the wire run? I would like to get the 5050 lights but worried about the amp/current draw and would use about a 40ft piece of 18awg wire. Looks like they draw around 6 amps for 5 meters.

I used some 18/4 wire (underground sprinkler wire) to go from the lights to the control box. My run is only about 12-15 ft though, just enough to go down the awning and inside to the basement where the control box is. Where are you running them from/to that would require a 40ft. run of wire? Just sounds like a really long run.

Well I guess it's only going to be about 30 feet I'm running from the fuse box at the close to the rear of the camper to the front and out where the power goes out for the awning. I may just run from the the battery and put a fuse there if needed to keep wire length down

Wasn't sure how I was going to mount them. At first I thought I would put a Velcro strip on the awning tube and another on the light strip. That didn't work since the Velcro wouldn't stick to the LED strip. After looking at the strip lights I thought It looked like they would fit in the rail on the awning. Well they did! And better yet, they will roll up right in the awning. Take a look, I can get some closer pictures of them in the daylight tomorrow.
I would love some pics...How did you attach electric?

I just ordered wire, waterproof connectors and an RF controller from usledsupply.com. So now hopefully it will be a self contained unit that will always be hooked up. I also moved it from the awning tube to the side of the camper on the awning rail.

Due to the overwhelming demand for these LED Awning lights, I am bringing an extra set just in case someone might want to install some while we all are there. These are the 16'-0/300 LED Ribbon Strip with controller and AC/DC Power Supply. Just in Case

We just got back from camping and I noticed that I have a very slight problem. On one of the light clusters the green LED is not lighting up, red and blue work but just not the green. Its only the one light, about 7 from the cut end of my strip. Has anyone had this issue before? Does anyone have any idea what happen or if I can fix it?
