These lights are meant to last and do not require to be taken down or unplugged every time you close your awning. Like every other product we sell, these are used by the OEM's and are installed on brand new units everyday.
This light kit is designed specifically for RVs, do not be fooled by other sellers who may sell the "IP65 Crystal Resin Waterproof LED strip light with 3M". We have tested this item out and have found that it does not hold up to the elements. The IP68 with mounting channel is what OEMs are currently using in their units. The IP68 strip is covered in a crystal resin similar to the IP65, but in addition is also encased in an additional silicone sleeve, which will give you double to protection from all elements. This LED strip is then installed in the UV treated mounting track (made from poly-carbonate) and is held in place by it's adhesive backing and compression by the channel, which is made right here in Elkhart, IN. Adhesive tape is real commercial grade 3M.
What's included in this kit.
- 1 12 Feet of 3528x60 IP68 Waterproof LED strip light w/ 12" Wire lead (1800 Lumens Total).

- Note: When possible choose White PCB for White units, Choose Black PCB if your unit is Black or Tan. See our other listings. Although we have a wide selection we do not have every PCB and Light color in every length but due to the mounting location it is hidden by the awning when in the closed/travel position and when the light is on you can't see the PCB color.
