Replacing Alante Accent LEDs

The original Accent LED strings on the front end were failing, probably because they were made for dry locations only. I also disliked the color. I wanted something that was closer to the color of the headlights. I am installing LED strips that have adjustable color. These strips are rated as waterproof too. The white color of the strips look a lot better than the original black strips.

Do you have a link to the strips you purchased? I've considered adding a few more on the undercarriage or under the dash for incandescent lighting options.

Just curious. Do you cut these light strips to length? In reading the notes from your link the manufacturer doesn’t recommend cutting them. How could you make them fit without cutting them or do you order them to the length you need?

The light strips posted appear to run on 110V, I don't think that is the same kit.

Mine are going out also because they are not waterproof. Just no understanding Jayco, why on earth would you put non-waterproof LED on the FRONT of a MH <smh>

Looks like they have cut marks <rgb> every 2". Just be sure to apply some silicone to the cut end to keep the waterproofing.

The lights themselves are 12VDC, but come with w 110VAC 5A power block, which you wouldn't need, would need to cut off the power feed to wire to the coach power.
