Just installed ultra bright led's

Just installed ultra bright led's outside underneath awning on side of my RV.
As you can see I wired the led's on that orange lite on the side of my RV.
These LED's cost me $20 bux on ebay for a 15ft roll of 600 ultra bright led's. They have a clear weather coating (thick rubber ) on top of the led's.

These led's have a sticky back. Make sure you clean the surface first!

Now you will see a small box in the center. It's just one of those small telephone jack box'es $2 bux at Home depot. I also bought a roll of the clay weather striping. You can mold it into any shape you want. I use the clay on the the orange lite above and on that small box below.

I hooked the wiring to the Orange Lite Above!

These led's a very bright!!!!

Here are a couple of pics:







NOTE:

Use a chalk line to make sure your lites are stright. I did not use a chalk line cuz I did not have one like a moron lol

You can hardly notice them on the side of the TT. I like the clear coating

Nice. Can I ask why you choose to drop down from the knight vs going up closer to the awning?

No reason. I guess it was the easiest to do since the switch that turn on the orange lite is inside my RV. Thought it would be easier to hook up the wires. This bad boy is very bright! No complaints.

Nice and bright. Looks good. Looks like you could probably remove the light in the original outdoor lamp.

I guess I could but naaaaaaa lol I'm lazy lol. But I was told that the orange lite helps keeps bugs away. ( per camping world ) Now weather that is correct or not is yet to be seen.

Bug sees the white lights, comes buzzing in full speed, looks up and sees the orange light, slams on the brakes, and throws it in reverse.
