Great lights, small issue but handled
I received the package and tested the lights as soon as I unwrapped the package. Everything came in a water proof bag to protect it all. Lights powered on fine but the controller and remote didn't seem to be working. I contacted the seller and within the day they sent out a new remote no questions asked. Awesome Service!!!!
I installed them in my boat to give it an awesome look.

RGB LED's work great, watch power supply
I purchased two of these kits to install as lighting under my travel trailer (32'). I had the more basic remote kit I bought from efay awhile back for lighting in a boat engine compartment and was impressed. So I bought two to stretch right down the middle of the camper under the frame rails. I ran both in series off of one controller that I water proofed with epoxy and mounted on the front of the trailer frame. Sensor pokes out of a small hole and works well. I can tell that the lights get a bit dimmer towards the back of the camper, so I am definitely pushing the limits of running two strands on one RGB controller, but I am not real good at following product use rules! I do find it hard to believe that the backing is really 3M as it is not real good. It was more of an adhesive to hold it in place until I could go back with zip ties and some clear shoo goo to secure it in place. For less than $45 it is fantastic and gives the bottom a nice glow at night, not over powering.
While it is a cheap set of lights, I gave it 5 stars based on value for the price. Buy basically the same thing from an RV show and you will spend 3 to 8 times as much. Make sure your power supply you use can push at least 800 milliamps (10 watts) at 12 volts. Otherwise the strand will light up on one color only and it seems like the controller or remote is bad. No on/off, color changing, just a constant on that was blue for mine. Hooked up to better power source and they worked just fine.
No power supply with this set, but it doesn't say it has one either. That is why I ordered it, I was installing on a vehicle that uses a 12 volt battery. No negative for not including something that they say isn't included.....
Happy happy happy am I!

Use with utmost caution
I have purchased a total of 14 sets of these lights and they seemed to work wonderfully. As they are waterproof we had no hesitation in installing them outside and installed them on the side of our camper under an awning. We noticed last weekend there had been a color shift on the light string and unplugged them. Last night we were going to replace them and when we were taking them down we discovered that they had actually gotten so hot they had BURNED through the fiberglass siding on the camper and could very very easily have burned the camper down with us inside. I have since removed all of these lights from our property and contacted the seller. I have pictures of the burned camper wall as well as of the lights but do not see a way to add them to the review.
