    This morning I fitted the led tape to the wind out awning. I have wired it to the awning light switch but the led ref controller that a lot of you brought does not work with the led tape wired to the switch. I tried the controller and tape befor I fitted it and the controller worked fine. So from fitting the led tape and controller onto the van it does not work . The led tape works from the switch but not the remote control. Have I missed something?

    Duff battery/ wrongly fitted in remote control ?
    On some remotes you can view the output from it using the camera screen on a mobile phone

    Don't know what receiver you're using but have you checked the polarity of the feed to it.
    Some LED strips will work with reverse polarity but the receiver probably wont.
    Also the remote I bought last year came with a battery which lit the transmitter on it but wouldn't work until I fitted a new battery
