When we camp, we often settle in before bedtime and watch a little TV. The original room ceiling lights are harsh and we wanted a soft ambient light for that time of day and TV viewing.
I've tried removing a bulb from each fixture, but the brightness still wasn't quite right and also the fixture put off a lot of heat.
In the past there have been threads on this forum with mods using LED light strips along the peak edge and LED replacement bulbs in existing fixtures, so I got curious to see what I could find...
While Google searching last winter I came across this item from a seller on Amazon. Shipping was more than the cost of the light strip, but with a combined total of $12.48 it met our budget.
Jobs and family health stuff got in the way the rest of the Winter and this Spring, so the project was shelved but not forgotten. Today Gary and I started and completed this mod to our Aframe.
Here's the LED light strip details and info:
It has small unobtrusive lights along the 16' strip that can be cut to length as well as a peel and stick backing.
Gary hooked them up temporarily by cutting and stripping the ends off a 12V plug in wall phone charger that we no longer use. He and I agreed the stip offered just enough ambient light for evenings relaxing in our A126:
So we took steps to hard wire install the LED peel and stick strip lighting. More details in the following posts.
