I just did the same thing. Except I had to also replace the plastic track that the LED light goes into because it was all warped. It was a much harder job than I had anticipated. I had to remove the entire awning cover in order to slide out the old track and slide in the new one, which was not a very easy job! I'm super happy with the results though because the new LED strip (aftermarket from Amazon) is way brighter than the original one that came on the trailer. It also has a super thick gel like casing around the lights for improved waterproofing.

Do you have a link to the one you used? I'm wanting to add a strip light, but even the "waterproof" LED strips just seem to have been dunked in very thin silicone. I'm liking that yours has a thick cover.
Thanks for any info!

I used this one in my passthrough which seemed very sufficiently weatherproofed:

None of the pictures show it, but there is a thick rubber dome shaped covering going the full length of the strip.

Mated perfectly with the following:

Just a heads up that it was a REAL pain to get the strip into the plastic track. It is just a bit too thick (which is great for waterproofing). That being said, now that it is in it's not going anywhere! I just want you to be aware that it's definitely not plug and play, but it is doable. I also like the fact that it is warm white and not cool white.

However, if you are just planning on adding it to the side of your trailer under the awning and not using the OEM track, then this would be a perfect LED strip for that purpose. I also bought this 3m tape, but didn't have to use it because of how snug the strip was in the track.

I need to do this! I did the A/C ducting mod and definitly noticed an improvement. For sure need to check the furnace ducting as the flow is pretty poor.

That looks good! Guess I'm lucky that all I had to do was slide the old strip out of the track and slide the new one in.

Thanks. Yeah, it would have been a MUCH easier job if I didn't have to replace the track!

Before any of you make any comments on my little project, remember, I'm an Electrician by trade, not a carpenter/cabinet maker.....but this is going in a pantry and not really visible except when the pantry door is open. One of the pantries in our camper is quite large, but not very deep.....5 1/2", which doesn't allow for plate storage if you want to lay them flat. So this was my little contribution for the kitchen (normally Peggy's domain and do not interfere unless asked). Since there are just the two of us, we normally have only four plates, with a stash of paper plates in case of additional needs. Each section holds two of our square plates, for the total of four. The base is exactly 5 1/2" deep and fits on a shelf perfectly....so...here it is....

Thanks Flipzan and Cookinwithdiesel!
I will need to find a track to put it in as there is nothing there now. Or for as cheap as they are just try it as is and seal the wiring/solder joints and see how water proof they really are.

If it works as designed & the wife is happy with it, it's perfect!!
