OK, guys, I haven't soldered since 9th grade (or possibly earlier), but I've got a new soldering iron, with 20W or 40W power selection. I have tried twice to desolder the lightstrip soldered connections, and they just don't come apart. Any advice? I've got the basic lightstrip kit, the extension kit, and many extending connection cables to span a bunch of under-cabinet angles. But I JUST CAN'T get the soldered connections to come apart. <disappointed frustration> Eventually the ribbon just gives out after repeated tries with heat. I tried using desoldering wick, too, to no avail. Please help with any advice. Thanks in advance.
