Mine came in today! Just in time as we are leaving out tomorrow. Got them installed and trimmed to the right length in a matter of minutes. Looks great!

I didn't want the Disco Lights so I went with a company out in Calif. that made me a 13.12" string of Orange and Green. I have a question about mounting them. I plan to mount them to the wall just like other's have. I read about 20 pages of this mega-thread and decided to jump to the end to ask a question. When mounting to the wall what will work better Velcro or Two-sided tape? Also is there any kind that is more weather ie. Heat resistant?

They all have 3m tape so just wash the trailer and peel & stick where you want it.

Ditto, I wiped the aluminum awning mounting rail with 91% Isopropyl alcohol and stuck it right on.

Not the ones I bought they are just rope lights.

2 meter' Orange and 2 meters Green LED rope lights. | eBay

So I should just run to Lowes or somewhere like that and get some two-side 3m tape and use that?

They are rope lights. Tape is not gonna work.

You will need a rope light mount like:

I plan on locating them just under the awning mounting rail not on the awning. Can I use something like this?

LED ROPE LIGHT 10FT MOUNTING TRACK(CHANNLE) 1/2INCH | eBay

Yes, that looks like it will work just fine.

This makes the lights not so bright!

If brightness is what you want after trying that install method then you'll have to do what herk did and two side tape them to wall under awning mount facing outward.
I am wanting to get some of these after trying to read all 46 pages of this topic and hearing about everyone's fun they're having. I have a few questions, that hopefully ya will answer.

I want to install the lights in the awning groove like Wagon52 did. From what I can tell, is maybe the lights that they ordered didn't have the double-sided tape pre-installed on them. Is this correct?

The ones on Amazon and/or the ones Lou is using, do have this tape, which may be the problem in getting the Amazon lights to slide into the groove as easy. Is this also true?

If so, how hard would it be to remove the tape from the light strip (if ordered from Amazon), to be able to place the strip into the awning groove.......or has anyone else already successfully placed a light strip into the awning with the tape strip attached?

Thanks

Herk had sucess with the tape that came on his, I tried and it fell off just sitting in the drive after a couple of days. I got the outside 2 sided tape from Lowes and split it on my bandsaw as you only need a 1/2" wide tape and all Lowes had was 1". So far, after 2 months and towing in the rain and 5 or 6 days of constant rain they have held good to the rail under the awning on the side of the camper. I put mine on the underside of the rail instead of on the camper itself.

I too ordered mine from the original op and it came from China without tape. I just placed it in the channel like everyone says.
