Installed mine this past week. I installed the controller inside the pass thru and wired to the light in the pass thru. I used 3m auto tape from Walmart to stick the strips to the awning tube. Works great.

Does anyone know the width of these lights? Needed to buy tape to mount them and the narrowest I could find was 1/2 inch.

That might be too wide. The ones I bought came already equipped with double sided tape.

Just not sure how well the tape will hold up. I was planning on mounting them to the awning rail against the camper.

1/2" will be just right, all I could find was 1" and I cut it on my bandsaw down to 1/2"

1/2 tape is what I used and I bought 3m VHB (Very High Bond), sticks to everything and anything. I peeled the backing from the lights and stuck the VHB to the led strips.

What kind of connector did you use? Looks way better then the 4pin factory connector.

The price is 12.50 per cord. You can search ebay and amazon for the same type of cord set. You will need a male and female.

Does that leave imprints in your fabric? Still debating how to mount mine, but Labor Day is coming and times running out.

Install mine and will get some night shots. Temporarily installed on roll then on camper. I decided to put on camper because due to the angle of the awning it reflected more light down brightening up the area a little more. Wired them into outdoor light as seen the made extension that plugs it on arrival.

I would think this here is what you'd want since it has both a male and a female end.

I really like the idea of wiring them into the outdoor light. It is very slick looking. How does it look when you have the extension plugged into the light? does it hang in front of the door?

No I put the little stick on wire clips that the cord sits in. Going camping this weekend and will get a pic.
