Mounted it in the corner of the awning rail and the arm support. I caulked all corners on the inside and then sealed it to the side of the camper. It is also held in place with one of the arm support rail screws. It has now withstood 4 days of constant rain here in Orlando, FL.

Not pattern. Custom Color.

I am jumping on the bandwagon here and am going to get a string of the 5050 LED's and mount them under the awning so I can turn them on when the awning is in.

Most of the buttons work on my 44 button controller. The ones I get no response to are the up & down arrows on all 3 colors and with respect to the DIY buttons, they all make it go the same color. Don't know what you do to make each of the DIY buttons remember a different color or sequence or how to make the up & down buttons do something. The instructions are totally useless.

I did not buy the multi color. Just bright white so no box. But the box is small and water proof You could mount just behind awning rails up high and it should blend nicely.

On my controller, the up/down buttons control each color's brightness.

By adjusting the colors you can custom blend a color that is perfect for your camper's mood. Once you get a color you want to save, holding a DIY button down for 10 seconds should save that color to the button.

Oh, other than the pre-programmed on/off sequences, (Flash, etc), there is no way to make them do anything else. The individual colors have control lines. The individual LEDs do not. There would need to be a matrix of wires to the LEDs, and no way to trim the length without destroying the matrix.
