Glow wire vs LED light strips

Has anyone tried to use glow wire (aka electroluminescent wire) in any capacity in their RV or TT? Like under the awning, or courtesy lighting, etc. I'm just wondering if it's bright enough, if it's proven to be durable, weatherproof, etc. Thoughts?

Have never seen a thread on it.
Yours is the first I think.

Well Herk, I am nothing if not a pioneer! I was down your way on Saturday for Jay-Z's "Made in America" concert in Philly, the stage was on the "Rocky" steps of the art museum. Good music, but I hate crowds--especially crowds of obnoxious people who are younger than me...

As for the wire--my two main issue are--is it bright enough and is it durable? I know it comes in different diameters (2MM, 5MM, etc,) and I assume that larger is brighter, but what do I know? I'm going to have to find some 20 year old kid that uses this stuff on the headliner in his Civic and pick his brain.
