I installed my lights under the rain gutter (so I can have them on regardless of the whether the awning is extended.) It adds a very nice accent to the whole trailer. It also attracts quite a crowd. On several occassions over Labor Day weekend, I had groups of people standing in the campground road watching them and asking me about them. Some were like kids playing with the remote.

Do the lights attract bugs? When I used Christmas lights the bugs were terrible! I found other lights dont attract bugs as much. Really like the look of this but dont want the bugs to go with it.

I didn't notice any major increase or decrease in bugs. Of course the only time I've been out was when it was pretty hot and there isn't much you can do about them in the heat.

Worried about bugs while camping? Never heard of bugs bothering anyone while camping.

Lights are usually high enough on the trailer to not bother anyone.

This is the song that doesn't end.
Yes, it goes on and on my friend.
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
And they'll continue singing it forever just because...

Just a suggestion: could a mod close this one. It's long enough.

This horse IS dead.

Mine quit working this weekend. They came from amazon, LED Wholesalers. I think I posted a link earlier. 1 week after the return deadline, but I contacted amazon and they are letting me return them. I guess I'll try another set. Hope the next set holds up longer.

I agree that this one is TOO large and needs to be closed.

Really very impressed with all of the clever ways these diode lights have been wired in. Couple of questions I have and I have read through all 61 pages. It seems like what ever way you wire this up you still have to get out a ladder to plug the strip in and the head of the roller, is that a correct assumption? Obviously that is not for the guys who have installed them under the awning but out on the roller.
