Controllers

If I have the IR type can I use the RF type without a problem of getting the lights to function?

The controllers are designed to work with all the common LED strip types.

Installation Complete

Installation finally completed...Tapped into the DC wiring at the outside bug light next to the entry door....removed all the inside stuff from the light fixture, replace it with the controller and the antenna wire...Drilled a small hole in the bottom of the plastic, ran the antenna head out and caulked the hole..Ran the power cable out through another hole on the side of the light fixture up to the light string..everything is caulked up well...with on a short piece of wire leading to the light string...not noticable at all...the antenna lead was attached to the camper side with a tie wrap and a stick pad for holding wires in place...pictures to follow...
Everything works up to forty feet away, in the dark of course...looks spookey behind the ADCO Cover that is still on the coach...

This sounds exactly of the install that I am thinking of doing. Would you be able to post some detailed install pictures?

Ah. Why not just say wife or husband then? I just don't get these acronyms.

AWESOME - Me/Doug
MIL - monster in law (err... mother)
FIL - father
TURBS - emotional issues guy
TV - tow vehicle or television depending on context
