For those looking for simple ways to power.....order 10m of 4wire rgb led extension cable for 10 bucks off eBay....order a few male and female 4pin no solder connectors and run the cable to the battery box any way you want with cable to spare. Ill be running the extension cable down the edge of my power awning arm until I can swing over to the top of my slide access. Wire will go inside the slide area out of sight to the bottom of the trailer the tie wrapped along other lines to my battery box. Controller will be mounted in the battery box where the remote can be safely stored as well. Look for adhesive wire clips to secure the wire along its path. You guys are doing great.....love it all. For me, I want the controller down low and stear away from putting it up high where trouble shooting stinks for short guys like me when problems come....and easy remove and store when the evil winter returns with all it's dampness up here in the great white north


Strip install will get done in a few weeks..right now I'm just getting ready to install my 12v hour/day timer for my fridge fans...whomever thought a fridge designed to go in a slide with a side wall vent has no idea about fridge efficiency and proper heat dissipation.....two fans timed to run during hours of most use have cut down the fridge recovery time at least 10 times what it was.

NOTE: These are also Female connectors as the black pin retention plastic pulls right out and there are identical pins on the other side. The Black plastic with pins is actually a male to male adapter.

Found out by losing mine.

as you can see in the picture...my battery box is off quite a bit from my awning arm actually battery box door is hidden behind the open entrance door...but by running the wire over the awning arm and down it's side to the top of my slide opening the wire will be completely inconspicuous....install will apear quiet and clean with no overhead fuss, boxes or wires groups....just opinion, but no method is wrong...you guys all did great!.

5M 300 LED 5050 Waterproof RGB SMD Flexible Lamp Strip Light 44 Key IR Remote | eBay

Herk, do these look like the ones that you used, WITH the 44 Key Controller?

Thought I'd check to see if I missed something.

Do you or anyone know what the "white" setting on these look like? This is what I assume we'll use 99% of the time.

Thanks.
