My led strips came with 3M sticky tape on the back. Bought directly from China-
could be counterfeit but the logo is on the back of the peel off paper.
Mine have hung up there ok for a week. Fingers crossed!
I went with blue only and no controller. It's a very compact nearly invisible
install. I drilled a small hole thru the wall and tied it into an interior light circuit.
This was fairly easy in my case. My hole came thru inside the
bathroom closet where there were exposed lighting wires. Easy to tap
into a 12v supply and easy to add a round hole wall switch thru the closet
wall near the existing light/exhaust fan switch. That wall is single ply with
no hollow core but it has a 1/2 plywood backer in the closet. It was
a perfect place to install the switch. Got a round hole rocker switch from
Radio Shack for $4 and it's a done deal.
We have our 1st test in a CG next weekend. Camping 3 nites off the grid. I'm
looking forward to being one of the only guys in the non electric side with
I used 2 strips, one under the awning gutter facing down. It washes the
wall with blue light. The 2nd is on the awning roller. Both strips together draw
right at 2 amps. We should be able to run them a couple hours a nite with
no problems. I'm taking the genny just in case we need to charge batteries
for the 3rd nite-- It might be cold enough we need the furnace!
That's fall camping for you!
BTW, I saw where some had mentioned the silicone light strips tended to
stick to the awning when rolled up and later when opening the awning.
I took a small brush and dusted the strip with baby powder and it took
the tacky feel away. At least it should not stick to the awning this time. I'm sure it will
wash off and need to be re-applied if it sticks in the future...
