LED lighting.

Anyone mess around with any LED lighting? I just ordered a few of these kits http://www.amazon.com/SUPERNIGHT-Wat..._detailpages00 and thought they would look cool under the MH. The blue would match the lights on the awning.

I used a strip very much like that on the awning tube (my 2014 didn't come with LED lights...) ran the wiring along with the power awning supply line. The controller unit is not waterproof - so keep it sheltered. (If you find a waterproof verson - let me know...)

Added non waterproof strips - both RGB and warm white inside the RV as well for indirect lighting.

Replaced virtually all interior bulbs (not the one IN the microwave) with LED replacement bulbs.

One item to note is voltage - especially on the individual bulb replacements (the strips I have used have all been fine so far...)
Look for individual bulbs rated HIGHER than 12volt... Everything I bought was rated 12-24Volt...
Our 12v systems actually run in excess of 13volts - and have seen some examples of overheating, frying, smoking 12v bulbs.
All lights remain cool to touch even after being on for hours.

motion light

Yes I put one on my 2015 windsport 27k . I put is right above the door. Because the porch light is useless. I used super strong velco for outdoor. Works great. I have been on three camping trips. And its not going any where. Plus I can take the light off with no problem.

OK... here is a few pics of what I have done tonight.... Really a nice set of light and seems that you can do so much with them. Thinking about adding another on under the bottom side of my slide.

I used double sided tape and don't plan on taken it off but if you do peel off as much as you can them used WD40. About the only thing I know of that works.
