LED tube lights

Here are a couple pics of some LED tube lights that I just put in my Uhaul. These are 39 ft long, they work off of 110V not 12 V, I used some small plastic stick on coffee cup hooks that I found at Wally world, you get 8 for $.97 then I secured the rope light with tiny white plastic wire ties. The tube lights are the ones made for the First Up canopy and are $16 at Walmart.

They look great, the light is really nice, not too bright not too dim and they reflect off of the interior which looks really cool, all for under $20!

I just bought the same rope lights at Walmart yesterday to install under the "lip" of the belly band around the outside of my Campster. In this location they give off a fair amount of light around the trailer that would be unobtrusive to the surrounding campsites yet will allow my old dog and me to get around at night without tripping over things.

Just a word of caution on the LED rope lights. I had a set blow up on me at one of the connectors. They left some pretty scary scorch marks on the fascia of my house. They may look cool, but I don't feel they are safe. Caveat Emptor.

Thanks for the warning, Roy! Perhaps that is why the instructions say do not put through walls and such. I tested the rope light out under the trailer lip in the garage this afternoon and did notice some heat, which I thought interesting given that most LED don't emit much heat. I guess I'll put clips under the lip instead of making it more permanent.

We put in LED strip lighting. It's 12 volt designed for cars. From Walmart and very easy to install. Peel and stick and hook up the wires and a switch.

Barbara - what are those lights you have over your sink? LED or? I'm looking for something similar for our Scamp.

They are LED Puck Lights sold for household use but they are 12 volt with a (converter?) to make them 110. Just cut it off and wire to your 12 volt system.

I found it at my local hardware store. Of course the glasses don't travel there.
