LED Patio Lighting

Hi,

I had a thread on this a few qeeks again but cannot find it.

I would like some form of patio LED lighting. I have power in the basement bays thats open.

Can anyone recommend a setup to use and how and where to attach it?

Thanks,

Check out Boogie Lights (yeah, bad name, but its a good website and product).

How you wire depends on what is the easiest way to get the power form the LED light strip to the power source/controller. Usually you need to drill a hole in body near the awning motor or use the rigid wire channel (they sell) to run the wire down the exterior along the awning support arm.

I was going to add a strip of lights but I think I'll just replace the bulbs in the ThinLight patio lights.
I don't need to light up the campground.

Thanks all,

I would rather not drill holes. I am happy to plug in to a power point

The ones I used are dimmable! When we start to bed I turn them on white and dim them down to about 50%.

Patio lights? Not sure if you are looking to install lights above or below. I installed these to light up the mat (when out) under the awning.
Simple install, direct to battery via inline fuse. Click image for larger version
