LED awning light strip

Just rolled out my awning this weekend and when rolling out the awning the led light strip stuck to the awning and ripped the light strip off the metal track and now my lights dont work anymore. I have look for replacement light strips but not sure which one to get b/c I have seen lights that say 18 per meter, 30 & 60 per meter. Does anyone know which one is a comparable replacement?

The community can likely be more help to you if you can provide more info for us.

What year and model is you trailer?
Who is the manufacturer of your awning, and what model is it?

Just take the rest of them down and use your light on the side of the trailer..all led strips are junk after a while.

What we have is a string of patio lights that we clip to the flap on the end of the awning. I went to staples and got some of those black paper clips that I use to clip on my lights, but you have to remove them if a wind comes up, but for lighter breeze they hold very well to hold the light. I could have also have used a red hot nail to burn a hole which would have worked absolutely fine to but if a storm brews and you only have seconds to get the awning in quick, you can just pull down the lights.

The LED strip on our awning recently started having issues. About 1/2 the lights were out. I found these on Amazon and ordered them as a replacement. It has about twice as many lights per inch and looks great.

I pulled the old strip down and disconnected the plug on the end where it connects to the trailer power. I then cut the plug off and spliced it onto the end of the new LED strip. Used the adhesive on the new lights to put them in place, plugged them in and they are excellent!


Pretty happy with a $7.00 fix.
