We just got back from a week long trip and ours worked flawlessly; on original install I made the mistake of sticking them to the "rail" on the camper where the awning attaches and the weight was too much for the tape to hold them up-side down. Removed them and placed them under the rail, attached to the side-wall of the camper with the same tape and they seem to hold up well. I expect to have to replace the double sided tape but until I have a reason to, they are staying as is.

Hope they stay up.

Me too; I used the 2 sided tape that was already attached to the lights and plan to get some replacement tape and have it on hand, probably fail at the most inopportune time......

That's where I put mine, but I had to use the 3M outdoor tape as the tape that came on the lites turned loose in places just sitting after 2 or 3 days. They've survived a trip from NC to FL and 2 wks down there with 4 days of constant rain which never touched the lights.

I bought the automotive trim tape (1/2 " width.) I rubbed it down with alcohol before I taped them up. It seems to be holding well now so we'll see how it goes.

Funny thing is the remote for the lights controls my radio in the basement as well. Every time I press the blue button it turns the radio on/off. Other buttons do other things as well. Fun times!

Cyclepuck, as I bought these some time ago...and due to a million reason haven't put them on yet...I really like the controller inside the scare light...my question is wiring into the scare light, without having looked at these, I am assuming that the power supply converts from 115 vac to 12 vdc. My only other question would be the heat from the scare light does it negatively affect the controller?

Thanks.

The light bulb is removed and the power wire is re-routed to the controller.
The scarelight housing and power is just a somewhat weatherproof housing for the strip light controller.

Hmm, DW likes the scare light, so I need to keep this thought and rethink it a bit. I really like the clean install that provides.

I put a led bulb in my outside light with a clear lens. The led bulb gives off a good amount of light and runs cool. Something to think about.

Just got another set and thinking of outlining the door frame and under the door and getting the power from the outside step light. Have to consult TOWTA on that and maybe do it VERY temporarily.
