Sena destroyed the fairy lights that I put up to deter critters. I'm looking for something more durable or eaiser to run thru plastic tubing.
If you get rope led lights, the plastic hose is pretty indestructible I think I could run my RV over ours.

I just read your attachment, I'm thinking Sena could destroy those. With your unit I would permanently attach to undercarriage. You could use zip ties or small hose clamps.

The ones in the link require alternating current. Not DC. Sorry.
I don't know how much of a load Ropus Litus would put on your inverter or batteries.
This one is 50 ft, is A/C and draws .8 watts per foot. So, about 40 watts, or about .34 amps, if my math is right.

If they are that inexpensive, its worth a shot. Attach with zip ties and try them out.

Marty and I go way back to 1985. Been a couple years since we were together. Annie and Roe are having a grand time! We wouldn't abandon Bonita to sleep in just any old s&b in Phoenix.

Thanks for the compliment, Richard. But writing a book sounds like work. I retired 4.5 years ago and I like my life the way it is now.
