LED tape lighting

Menards sells this LED tape lighting +accessories. Anyone have experience with this product? I'm planning to install this under kitchen cabinets, in the kick space for floor lighting.

Ray, I would check to be sure the LED strip is IP65 weatherproof rated. Also, I'm sure this uses IR remote control. I wanted the RF remote so I could change the lights from inside or outside.

Did you see my post below?

I hope I don't need weatherproof for inside. I'm planning to install it under the kitchen cabinets, under the toe-kick, for low lighting when watching TV or something. I don't need a remote, just going to tie it into the present 12VDC floor lighting switch.
I just looked at your thread,I like your work, it's neat.

I installed something very similar from Amazon under my cabinets. Works great for accent lighting and/or a night light.

If it's like the Amazon stuff, it can be cut to length with a cut location every few inches as needed.

I identified the specific LED tape light kit I want. It's on sale this week too. It is 12VDC powered from a small 120VAC convertor, I'll cut off the converter and hard-wire it to the coachs 12V system. Thanks to MS happycamper, DW informed me I was buying 2 kits now.

Got my package from ALL ELECTRONICS, the catalog included both RF and IR LED remote control systems.

They have some interesting LED products.. No comment on them beyond they look interesting on paper

Strings of 3-LED strips, like 10 or 20 or 30 of them to a string, You could get downright creative with those,, 5MM of LEDS, 10 MM of wire, 5 MM of LED.

All Electronics | Electronic and Electro-Mechanical Parts and Supplies at Discount Prices

12VDC LED LIGHT STRIP, NEUTRAL-WHITE | All Electronics Corp.

The first link gets you to the catalog page,, The second to some LEDs

THe paper catalog has additional entries.

There are a few other products of interest to RVers on these pages as well.. I need to order a few more.

Super spendy. I think Amazon had the same thing at a much lower price.

I looked at Manards today and didn't see anything I could use so I will stick to the Expensive ones.
I'll look @ Amazon I just have never used any of those sites. Heck I haven'
t been on Facebook or any of those either.
