I have been looking over the various options available in these LED light strips and reading the reviews of many and came across one that caused me to take note. One reviewer noted that the strip he purchased had only 30 LED's per meter, and that for the same money he could have gotten 60 LED's per meter. This got me to looking closer at what was available. I did locate one set that does offer 60 LED's per meter(and yes they are the same size bulb). They do dim as well so if you think they may be too bright, you can turn them down. Here is a link to those if you are interested. http://www.amazon.com/Waterproof-Fle...I1B3QNSWFB01MP

The more LED's per foot the brighter the strip will be. I opted to mount on the awning instead of the side of the RV under the awning in the event the 3M tape stopped holding the strip. That way I wouldn't loose it going down the highway. The ones I got can be dimmed and are color changing.

This is a great find for those looking for brighter lights... had they been available last fall when I first bought mine I probably would have bought them That being said, now that i have the 150 light kit installed (actually 140 or so since i had to cut the last 2 feet off), they are plenty bright. Even at our campsite here in Myrtle Beach they easily shine brighter than the other sites around us.

Thanks drfife for the posting on these lights. I ordered a 16.4FT 5M 5050 RGB SMD LED Waterproof Flexible Strip 300 LEDs w/24 Key IR Remote yesterday from Amazon. Now where do I send your commission?

For the Canadian members here, you have to order through amazon.ca as they won't ship from the States. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.ca/16-4FT-Waterpro...e-Strip-Remote. The price was $37.71(cdn) including shipping. Because we will be using an add-a-room I've decided to install them on the trailer wall just under the awning mount. Looking forward to putting on some disco music, getting my leisure suit out of mothballs and partying with the lights on strobe. It won't be a pretty picture but it will be fun. I'll try and post some pictures after the install (of the lights, not leisure suit larry in action that is).

3'senough, I see that you said you hardwired to 12v and If I do this that is how I would do them. Can you explain?

Mine came in today as well... My plan is to mount them on the awning bracket against the trailer pointing down so the light up the front of the trailer. I also plan to drill a hole in and run them into the control panel inside, put a switch in there and power them with 12v. Maybe instead of drilling a hole, run them through the outside light to the inside. Will let you know how they come out.

I'm sure you will enjoy the lights.

Thanks for the recognition, that's commission enough.
