I put those inside for mood lighting. Then I found out that blue is supposedly the worst color for the eyes.

Gpounder,
Did you put them underneath the entire Coach or just the sides?

I just did both sides. I thought that was enough and there is a clear way to mount it.

Is your next project making it into a low rider? Not surprised it’s a CA thing. OK, different strokes for different folks.

Considering something similar, here. Where did you connect to power? Hardwired to a switch or using a remote fob?

While traveling back from Orlando, I was in the slip a couple of sites away form a brand new Tiffin Phaeton. Beautiful thing. And when the under-coach lights came on at night, it looked phenomenal.

Maybe it's a "holdover thing"? I don't currently liver there (thank goodness) but I was born in California.

On our 2014 Bay Star the exterior lights consisted of a 10 watt light over the door and the light under the steps. I mounted an RGB LED strip under the coach on the curb side between the Door and the rear axle on the underside of the storage compartments and a separate one on the bottom rail of the awning. I only have the awning rail on if we are outside. The under coach strip does stay on at night, to act as a night lite when we take the dog out at o'dark 30. They are both set to a purple color. It was a hold over color from when they used our coach for the Relay For Life event. A small way I give a head nod to family members that fought the battle and lost. I do not have them cranked up (bright). My goal is to allow us to walk around the area just outside of the door. I do not do different colors or flashing.

One end is right under the battery bay so connecting power was easy. There is a remote and a push button controller on the wire end if you do not have the remote. Draws .75 amp per string.

Drove thru a campground last night and a few RVs had the color changing "boogie" lights flashing away underneath. I thought they really looked cheap and tacky.

I want to do something similar to this, but I want more of the light to shine out from under the coach. I was thinking of some type of metal strip to aim the lights out into our sitting area under the awning. I do no want to use an "L" strip being that will shine it straight out. I don't want flashing lights, but a soft light to see by while sitting outside at night.

I was leaning toward blue, but I don't know now that it is damaging to eyes. How is blue damaging to eyes?

I put them inside a vinyl tube. They could be rotated during insulation.

The blue is kind of sharp to your eyes and the camera makes it look even brighter. There are 20 variations of RGB and then you can dim it too so finding your color and afftect is a botton click away.

Being a little more practical white may be my final pick as it did provide an ascent around the Rig at night. I am not looking to be obnoxious to others.
