Night time excursions

I added some led's today, one to the bathroom light that will be a night light to help in the bath at night time. Another is a step well light that illuminates the step and exit for those night time excursions.

I like it! What was your source for the red LEDs?

Jim,

The nightime trailer is loaded with light from LEDs - solar controller, phone clock, cell phones charging, computer charging, WiFi Hotspot, WiFi booster, Sat Dish LED, TV on switch LED..... It's amazing to realize how lit we've become. I hadn't really thought about it until your post...thanks.

Made me chuckle. In 2004 I put white LEDs in my new Chalet. Two went into to the overhead lights and two I made into desk lights. If you got right under them you could read the newspaper. Today I use one of the same lamps as a night light if the led from my propane detector isn't bright enough. Thanks Jim, keep the mods coming. Raz

Night time excursions

I've been known to use electrical tape to cover the bothersome little lights that were supposed to enhance our lives, but keep us awake at night.

Decided to Pimp my Escape with more night time LED lights, an outside step light as well as interior and added tiny switches to turn off the tiny LED's at night if needed.

Next up, making just the buttons on the bed area lights glow at night to be able to see them but not where it will keep you awake.
