Those are cool! Can't tell from your photo but do you have multiple rows as well? I assume it has a special controller to do all of those light dances.

I recently put lights strips on my 2008 Charleston MH. I have 2 slides under my awning. I opted to put lights on slides instead of awning so i wouldnt have to have a plug on awning tube. I am pleased with the way they came out. I mounted one on each slide on top on the slide cover bracket andgled down and one under each slide to give light on ground and inside compartments. I wired them into porch light switch. Hardest part was running all the wires to move wirh slides. I used black circuit lights and they are hard to see during the day

Got 'um done

Here are some picks of my project:
Used KLUS 45 angled channel and ran power down through hole where awning power was run. Got lucky and drilled hole through wall into bedroom. Came out just in front of drawers and kick plate. Ran wire under dresser and down under to the basement...

Tell me about the work and life part getting in the way! Took me way longer than I wanted it too. Between the rain, work and life... Just got it finished in time for our last trip of the summer. DW has to go back and teach all the little ones soon... The 45 channel worked better than I thought it would, Had to teach myself to solder to get the extra LED strip to finish out my 20' run. (Big awning)... That is another story for another day!
