Awning rope lights

I saw a thread on the forums about rope lights that fit in the awning track, and don't need to be taken off to roll up the awning.


Does such a thing exist? I can't find that thread, now.

I had them on my last camper but I kept removing because I did not want to wrap up the cord in the awning. I did not put them on my new camper.

Why would you wrap up cord in awning?

It is a long story. My FW is very picky, I mean extremely picky and she did not like the extension cord running up the awning rail so I had the light cords go at the center if the awning along the center brace so they could not be seen when open, the only problem was when you rolled it closed. I cut the plugs off them and spliced the connections cause the plugs were too bulky and I didn't want to puncture the awning

I remember now!

Thanks for the refresher!

Have you contacted Superbrightleds.com
And asked if maybe a custom order?

Mr. Heatmiser,

Is it necessary to wrap the cord in the awning? It seems it could be looped over the top of the closed awning, and bungeed.

I have those lights on my MH and all I have to do is unplug the end of the lights at the rail and put the awning in, no problems. Can do this in 2 seconds.

duh - just looked at post #11 on the other thread turbs linked to.

And post #33 (herk's) looks intriguing too.

I'll have to look at my awning to see if it has this same gap. I tried solar christmas lights and without some type of hanging system, there was nothing for them to grap onto!
