While the strip is the same, the functionality of the controller appears to have several additional features (in addition to the basic FLASH and SEQUENCE) as well as the ability to custom mix and save colors.

I will let you know how it works out.

I went a little different route, since I have a manual awning and no power source close, and i didnt want to drill through the side of my camper I went with 120v LED rope lights under my rig. Got em from wal-mart, $15.00 per 12' strip. My first attempt was with a regular rope light and wasnt bright enough so I went with the LED's. Right now I have the strip's showing, I may flip my clips I used to mount them to shine more under the rig but I think I will lose some of the light. Wife is real happy with how they came out so I guess thats a good thing! Let me know what you think!

Thanks, not a fancy as some of you guys but I dont think they look too bad. I ran the cord inside my propane compartment and will just connect to the power supply at the campground when I hook up. Would be nice to put them on a switch but it is what it is!

I will run 4 wire "motion detector" wire (red, black, green and yellow conductors) up to the LEDs and relocate the controller inside the camper.

I also ordered a better IR controller with more features.

How will you get the infrared controller to address the remote if the controler is inside?

Correct.

Mere mortals like us can only read about it.

Probably some 42.5 million dollar optical retna sensor death ray deal that we can only read about in the latest Batman comic.
