Here are a few close ups of the lights in the track. It's very snug and I don't think I will have any worry of it falling out. The only thing I've found is that after its been rolled up in the awning I had to pull the strip out a little bit. Also I don't think the little plugs will do any damage to the awning.

My strip lights are on the way here. I got the ones with the sticky tape and will stick them to the wall; just under the awning rail.

Film at Eleven...

That's where I'm putting mine on the wall under where the awning rolls up.
so when awning is rolled up they are protected/hidden

Silly question, are you just plugging this into an outside outlet for power?

Yes it came with the 110v adapter and I use an extension cord. Yes you can string multiple strips together.

Many lengths are available on eBay and they can be cut shorter.
They are 12 volt DC and come with a wall wart (transformer).

While it is certainly easier to run an extension cord and use the wall wart; my plan is to investigate using the same hole the awning motor wires use to route switched DC to the awning arm for use by the LEDs.

If that won't work; my backup is a small hole into a storage cabinet above the fridge (the awning arm is right next to it).

Love these lights; what a great idea. How long did it take to get them? We are moving towards the end of this month (Richmond to Chesapeake) and want to be sure not to miss them.
