Looks good.

I haven't got my awnings done yet but I did use the plain white strips to do my full basement.

Using available 12VDC power a 10 watt (12VDC) bulb pulls .8 amps. --- sooo Considerably less... (16' is equivalent to about a 25watt bulb)

Great job Joe! Been talking about doing the kitchen myself since the spring. Just gave me some motivation to do a winter project! Looks great!

MSHAPPYCAMPERS,
Outstanding work. Outstanding results. You did what I planned on doing in more areas than I even planned on. I installed the "Dometic" (marketed) LED light strip under my awning about a couple of years ago and, it's a pretty good system. It's really bright and, it's dimmable to almost non-existent. That system, came as a "starting system" with (1) 39" strip of water proof LED lights, a 12V connector, a 120VAC Power supply and, one remote control. That particular system is Cool white only. They make an RGB system too.

When set to full brightness, that's some serious light. But, I've been wanting to do the under body lighting for quite some time. And just recently I came up with the under-step LED lights too. I didn't even think of the under-cabinet lighting like you did. Well, it's definitely more for me to think about.

We were at a campground in Anza Borrego called: The Springs at Borrego and there was a "Newel" club there at the same time. One of them had some under body LED lights that were seriously bright, IN HOT PINK! It really looked good at night. Ever since then, I've been wanting to do that. I just need to make sure I purchase BRIGHT LED lights. There are so many out there that are junk.

Anyway, again, thanks for the ideas. Thanks for the nice write-ups on how you did things. It's always nice to "walk the mine field" AFTER someone else has done it. I've done that in many other instances of working on this rig of ours so, it's nice to be able to follow some ones examples.
Scott
