Well the LED's came in this week and installed them yesterday. They are nice, I used 3m doubled side type you can get at auto-zone and put them on the awning roller. Can't wait till tomorrow when we leave for camping.
I need to figure out a way to extend the 4 wire lead from the lights to control box.
Are people using 18/4 or telephone wire. Also what type of quick connect would be the best (semi water proof) but able to disconnect if awning is rolled up by the wife without disconnecting wire.
In the meantime I took a PVC 4x4x4 Junction box, cut one of the corners of the lid. I placed the 120v adapter, controller box, and IR senors in the box and ran the cords out of the corner. I hang the box upside down using a 2.5 inch PVC pipe strap connected with wing nuts which I hang over the end of the awning.
This way if my wife rolls the awning up forgetting about the lights, the box will not roll up, the plug will disconnect and awning will close. I actually tried it and it works, however I have a 4x4x4 box hanging off my awning. The corner that is cut is facing down, so even though not "waterproof" it should be at the least rain proof.
Curious to see what people are using for extending the 4 wire lead. Thanks
