leds

Has anyone cut the wire between the control box and the plug that powers the led to extend it. And also the wires for the ir receiver to extend that one to. Was thinking about cutting those wires making them longer and bringing up the awning leg that is attached to camper then accros the awning fabric itself. Thinking if I roll the awning up the wires will roll up with the awning. Problem is I don't know what type of wire to use that will be small enought not to look all bunch up in the awning and will be big enought to handle the 6 amps Max power if I need it down the road just in case. Any thoughts.

I just found a four lead phone cable AWG26. I want to extend from the transformer to the LEDs. My chart maps it at max 3.2A per lead accd to Google wisdom. Can I use it for a 5meter Led with 1.2A/meter? I think it should be ok. Comments?

26AWG is mighty small, but we aren't working with an awful lot of current, so you should be alright if you stay below the ratings.

Also, I found this corner jumper on Amazon so you can bend around corners or over things!

Amazon.com: LED Strip Light Connector 4 Conductor 10 to 12 mm Strip to Strip Jumper: Home Improvement

Also good to do those stairs, you can get this;

Amazon.com: LED Strip Light Connector 4 Conductor 12 mm Ribbon to Cable, 2094: Home Improvement

That way you can reuse the cut-off strips to continue down the steps.

I wish I saw those when I was doing my re-wire.
That is very cool.
