+1 on the sun beating up our campers! I'm not so lucky and must store mine outdoors.

Same here! Florida's sun is killing my TT!

The strip lights are turning yellowish, (not the leds, just the silicone/rubber casing) I guess the sun is hammering them pretty bad! And after a year, the red color is fading in one of the ends.

I ordered my channel / clear lens (slightly different design) from the auction site.. It should mount and work very similar to the other channel that is available.

Different style of aluminum channel / cover

This is the different style of aluminum channel / clear lens cover that I procured from the auction page... It comes in 8 ft lengths, and will be easy to make work end to end with a dremel tool.. Once completed, I will post photos..

Pretty sure they dont make the LED Strips in 20' would have to buy 2 LED reels and cut the 3-4 feet section off the 2nd roll, I may be wrong though..

But i bought this kit for mine: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006K0JYD8?tag=p2069-20

I love amazon prime

Edit: Did some research i guess the recommended most strips come in the 16.4 rolls and they say the max you can do is 2 per run, due to the power drop/thin copper..

All you're missing is a set of awning tie down poles.

I put our LED strip in last week. Same place. Our CC came "pimped" with the awning remote!
