Lights anyone?

Starting to think about lights to hang from the awning. I have been looking at globe lights, lantern lights rope lights etc. wondering what others have, can you even see them under the awning?

I have 2 sets of the Jumbo Lantern lights from Cabelas. They are equipped with the flicker-flame bulbs for a nice effect. I also recommend the highly sought after and collectable Lawnware light. I tried to attach a picture but came back with an error that the pic had already been attached to the thread titled Party Light, so if you want to see the picture you'll have to go to the other thread.

The new led rope type lights are popular now. They come with a remote control and you can program them to change colors and other nifty things. I've seen them on the forest river forum and a few others. Not sure on the price though.

Mcfarmall, you can still post a picture in that situation. Find the old thread the picture is in, right click on the image, choose " copy image url". Click the image icon in posting tool bar. Enter the image url, and it will show up on your new post. You can also copy and post images off the internet this way, provided they are not too large.

Rope lights here... inexpensive and they throw off a nice bright light. We even have them on our patio at home and they work great.

I used to use an incandescent 30' rope light, but switched about four years ago to an LED string that looks like a string of minature sized Christmas tree lights. Last winter, I bought two strings of LED lights in the RiteAid powered by rechargable batteries with a solar charger. We'll see how well these work this summer.

We also use "Bill the Cat" (as we call him) on our picnic table. He's a single, green LED light that's also rechargable/solar.



We call him "Bill the Cat" because he (somewhat) reminds us of the comic strip character in Bloom County.

How difficult it is to put them up and down when you rolling in your electric awning because you are gone during the day or possible winds?

I have a string of solar multicolored led lights. I string them across and put the small solar panel on the top of the canopy...more decorative than anything...but looks nice...
