LED strip lighting

Has anyone wired up LED strip lighting up to 12v DC instead of buying a AC to DC power supply? I was planning of running it off the battery and installing a in line 6 amp fuse to protect the lighting and a switch.

Most people are using the RV 12V system for their LED Strip Lights.

Using a 120 VAC transformer to make 12 volts in a 12 volt trailer seems counter productive and will limit the LEDs use to shore power campgrounds (without an inverter).

Wiring

Probably right on that, but sure beats hacking into the wiring on the RV..the only thing I've got close enough is the outside light...will try it with the converter for now, can always go to 12V..thanks
