Right now I have the strip's showing, I may flip my clips I used to mount them to shine more under the rig but I think I will lose some of the light. Wife is real happy with how they came out so I guess thats a good thing! Let me know what you think!
Look great. What did you use to mount the lights under the camper?

Well I for one want to thank everybody who gas added to not only this topic but the site. I am waiting for time to work on mine. Late on the fall I picked up (if memory serves me correctly) a 33' strand of led rope lights from Wally World. My intension is to light up the underside. I also have the strip lights with remote and have yet to find time to put those on, and dag nabit, would t you know there is now a set of steps that are lit up. They're all great guys. First I have to find my loose ground then comes the winter mods. Thanks again.

OK, I know this is an old thread but I have a couple of questions. I was out and looked at our camper trying to figure where I want to mount the lights, control box, power supply ect.

My first plan is to mount the lights to the camper under the awning and then make a waterproof box and mount the control box under that. Plan 2, is to try and mount the control box inside the outside light and also pull the power from there. But I will change my plans if you guys can point me in an easier direction, like a easier or better spot to mount the control box.

I am having a hard time figuring out where to pull power from, the wires for the power awning run thru the wall and turn to go oustide, inside the wall and the awning is about 12" away from the front storage compartment. So where would you suggest I pull power from for plan 1? If I do plan 2 I would have the power figured out but how would you suggest running the power from the control box in the outside porch light to the beginning of the light strip and keeping it as concealed as possible? Also is there any of these kits that seem to be better than others, or ones to stay away from?

Thanks guys
