No, it will not crush them. I have used them. Don't worry about that.

Here are the photos of the lights I just installed. These particular lights come with a remote that can turn them off or on, can dim or brighten them.Click image for larger version

^ looks great...the transformer just disconnects when you're travelling? Are they attached with 3M tape just below the awning on the trailer body?

No, I disconnect when traveling. I placed the end of the lights that hooks into the transformer at the end where the door is located. That way I can stand on the door step and plug in, or unplug, easily.

Sorry, should have been more clear....after reading I can see how it would misunderstood.

It should have read...

Is the light rope attached with 3M tape just below the awning on the trailer body?

Ahh....no, the lights are placed on the underside of the metal awning cover with 3m tape. Not on the trailer.

Looking at putting the LED lights on the inside of the recessed aluminum awning cover to keep them safe from the weather and make for easy, safe storage. Like what you have done. Thanks for posting the photos.

This install looks very good! Just for clarity would it be possible to post an up close (macro) image of how and where you actually install the light strip

Is this the lights your using?
LED Light Kits

Thanks

Doug

Yes, that's the lights I'm using. I will attempt to take a really up close pic and post it.

Doug,

Here are the close us. As you can see, there are 4 channels on the aluminum awning cover. I installed mine in the channel closest to the side of the trailer. Although where I placed them is o.k. I think installing them in the channel furthest from the side of the trailer would be even better. I plan on moving mine to that location when I get an opportunityClick image for larger version

This is excellent - Now I can see how you installed it. Do you think be moving the install to the furthest away channel that you risk having the lights hurt in anyway when closing/opening the awning? Not that I know one way or the other - just thought I would ask.

As a final comment, its to bad one could not create some type of plug system that would allow you to hardwire the lights into the trailer in someway. It would just clean things up a little....

Cheers
Doug
