My wife called me on the way home from work yesterday ... a mysterious package from China arrived in our mailbox & it was addressed to her name. She couldn't remember ordering anything. When I got home we opened the package and found a 16' LED light strip. "Too much trouble to send them back" I said, "guess we could use them on the camper"

Ok I may be asking a question that has been answered but- I am on a smart phone reading this thread and can't find it. I ordered a strip of 5m lights. Can I order another strip and tie them together as my awningis 20 feet wide. My thought at first was to center them in the awning but as I look at the pics 10 m would do the whole awning and down the brace arms. Should I just order another set and power supply or order jus the lights . I see they sell them like that. Didn't know how hard it would be to splice two together . I have not received mine yet so not sure what I'm dealing with.

You have to solder the 2 pieces together, on either side of cut marks there are 2 metal points that you can solder stranded wire to. A lot of people use these lights as under cabinet lighting in their kitchens and you use a little wire to go around corners.

You can also use the end plugs to connect the two strips.
