Replaced Awning LEDs

Replacing the LEDs in the awning of the Vegas today was a breeze by following the Carefree of Colorado YouTube video.

Since I was doing it solo I didn't want to get 16 feet of LEDs all tangled up. As I had the step ladder out anyway I grabbed a dowel and inserted it through the LED reel and into the hollow of the top step rung. When I moved the ladder an appropriate amount of LED lighting strip was reeled out.

Very impressive!
You think like an engineer

Now, where did you purchase the replacement LED string?
Was your minimum purchase longer than the awning?

Please provide the details. Thank you

Ordered the basic 16 ft Replacement 30 LED strip from Carefree of Colorado's website. It was about 4 inches longer than needed but just scissored it off.

Master Chief, I really hate to do this to a fellow CPO but you paid about $69 to much. Had this LED strip on the awning going on five years.
