I'm just having fun...they look like they're pretty sweet...just pokin fun at the video of the disco

Speaking of which, the Queen of Disco is no more. Bell bottom pants and all let's raise a glass to Donna Summer when all those lights are up...

Just installed the led lights on the wall so when the awning is rolled up you cant see them. Very cool. 24 different colors. Another mod complete.

Your DW did a nice job on the lights Herk. She has talent. Looks good, think my DW is starting to go along with the idea. Lights haven't gotten here yet.

Wasn't sure how I was going to mount them. At first I thought I would put a Velcro strip on the awning tube and another on the light strip. That didn't work since the Velcro wouldn't stick to the LED strip. After looking at the strip lights I thought It looked like they would fit in the rail on the awning. Well they did! And better yet, they will roll up right in the awning. Take a look, I can get some closer pictures of them in the daylight tomorrow.
Yeah! My DH just ordered them for our tt. Can't wait.

Hmm ordered mine on 5/11, haven't arrived yet. Hopefully by the weekend for memorial day weekend. One question, did you say 12 volt? I don't want that have to send back to Asia.

Did you have to mount your strip sideways in the channel?
Mine won't fit flat they have to fit sideways.
