I have mine at the MH to do still. Not sure if i'm doing under the top or on the drum of the WeatherPro. I'd like them on top under and can route wiring right over the roof and down the fridge vent. Problem is there's only one outlet there for the fridge and i'm not sure of the feasability of changing the single outlet to a dual, anyone done that without issues?
I just ordered one of these! That sounds like a great buy!

Like it was mentioned before, make sure that the LEDs are waterproof as there are a lot of different styles for sure.

I ordered one of these off of EBAY also. I believe it has the entire package that I will need and the price was right. Thanks to all for the input.

After further review, I believe I am going to need a 12v 10a 120 watt power adapter as someone mentioned before. Does this sound right or am I completely off base.

Don't you have a 12 volt source in your rig? I ran mine off the battery.

I hadn't thought of connecting straight from the house batteries but that sounds like a plan. Thanks.

Picked ours up off Amazon for $26. Camping World is asking $179 on sale for the same unit. It is multi colored and 120 V that has a cord that runs down the awning support arm and plugs right in to an outlet there. Had to use Elmer's glue on the back of the LED strip as the sticky tape isn't that great.

Recently at Myrtle Beach we saw a couple of rigs with the LED lights on the awnings and one with multicolored LED's mounted under the coach. I think I would rather have them under the belly of the coach. Has anyone here done that?

That's what I'm about to do... but I decided I'd prefer the warm white instead of multicolor .. probably do it in the next week of so.

Installed mine a year ago under the awning on the coach, used silicone to help the 3M tape on the front and back. This year installed a 16ft strip under my slide pointing towards the coach, this gives a nice indirect light to enjoy

I'll bite... Ordered mine today. These are considerably cheaper than what I've found on Amazon, though these don't come with the 12v power supply, but they do have the superior RF remote. Hopefully they'll last a while! Now... Where will I install them?

So many good ideas out there....

Anyone care to detail the install process for the led's under the belly of the coach?

Also, any recommendations for a nice light set for this type of install, looking for something with a nice glow but not so bright that it is obnoxious!
