Lighting / Ambience / Outside / Inside / Upgrades / Awning

I must admit I have always been fascinated with lights.

As I truck driver I was one of the guys you see going down the road with lots of clearance lights.

I always thought it looked neat.

I pull a trailer with the Motor Home and will be adding clearance lights to the trailer, I know what I like on it.

I'm not sure what to do on the Motor Home.

I would really like to do the same for the Motor Home, but do not want to take away from the classiness of the Motor Home.

I would like to see what you guys have done, night shots would be neat, but I will take what I can get.

I do have a lot of rope lights on the inside. I do not think I need anything else on the inside.














I have not done any color or flashing lights, just white, and no LED as I do not like the "harsh light LED lights give off

No one has added or made any changes to their lighting?

No, but I am curious where you got the power supply for the rope lights. Adding those seems like a piece of cake except for where do you get the power and run the wires?

The rope lights around the counter and foot kick are plugged into the ice maker outlet in back of the counter.

The ones in the ceiling are tapped off the A/C

The vertical rope light is actually plugged right into the inverter under the refrigerator.

The rest are 12 volt.

X2 I think the inside is done. It's a little to much for my taste. Love your coach and all the work you have done to it.

Thanks, they are there but they do not all have to be turned on.

I'm surprised there are no photo contributions here.

Looking for ideas to light the outside, both while camping and while going down the road.

I did an HID conversion to my head lights along with 6" Hella spot beams in the factory driving light location.
LED lights on my boat trailer as well as the box.
I run a 20' flag pole while camping in the desert so I run a rope light up it and plug it into my converter.
Other than that, It's still a work in progress. This is my first coach coming from a toy hauler so all the goodies I put on my truck don't get seen much anymore...

I think I will modify the flag pole idea, when racing I have a flag pole , the stand goes under the tire.

I think I will figure out how to aim lights up to light the flag at night.

THANKS for triggering the idea.
