I also installed a similar LED light strip, but mine has double sided tape on it.
I simply stuck it on the metal roller, between the awning and the slot, since I have a manual awning it needed to stay clear. I leave it there, the awning rolls up as usual.
I have a 13ft awning and the strip was 16ft, so I cut it (can be cut to length every 4 inches or so). The multi coloured effects are fabulous, the remote blows people away.
Well, let me tell you, we were the talk of the campground last weekend
, never had so many visitors
I just ordered 6 for friends (so many people are scared of buying off eBay...) Will help them with the install.
Highly recommended mod.
