- Install on trailer exterior wall or on roller?
- How to route 12 volt power to receptacle and switch.
- Anything else we need to know?
By the way, there are some coiled and capped wires inside the upper cabinet just to the right of the 5.0 entrance. I haven't tested them for power but I'm wondering if they might be useful for this project.
The actual "tape" LED lights I bought from Amazon, it comes in what ever length of lights you want, then you just trim and clean surface, they stick to the plastic underneath awning - The controller is Part # WS-01DC8 along with the remote wireless) you find them at WWW.rvlighting.ca
( I assume they ALSO would carry the LED TAPE LIGHTS.
I used RTV to stick my strip to the plastic, rather than try to peel the paper off the tape lights...been holding so far!
