You could record your stories, compile what you already have, and let another write it and edit it all out. You get the royalties.

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.
Amazon.com - 50Ft Rope Lights; Soft White LED Rope Light Kit; 1.0"LED Spacing; Christmas Lighting; outdoor rope lighting -
Yes, but I would have to run a generator as I don't have a whole house inverter. To surround this house I need 60 ft (20 meters) of lights. The controllers come in many versions, including 12VDC. I guess there is a converter inside.

And, I can connect directly to the house batteries that are under the steps.

But did you read the Friendly Tips:

The controller may have a little voice while working.

I don't think she will understand. Since it's coming from China I assume the language is Chinese. She only understands Capuchin and English. and since I'll be mounting it under the coach I doubt the jabbering will keep us up at night.
