They can be rather bright that's why I put a dimmer switch on mine, also I hang a bug light to attract the bugs away from the door of the trailer.

That's kinda what I was wondering. The blue/purple light looks like the color of a bug light. I figured it would attract the critters. Maybe I over think stuff, but that's the way my pea brain works. Our awning lights are multi colored and the bugs just flock to them.

I figure the depreciation on a 2,000,000.00 rig per year is more than mine costs new. If you got it you might as well flaunt it.

True enough, but with that whole second home tax deduction for interest. Lord knows I would have to 'finance' it.....if I had the kind of ca$h to buy it outright that would just be a plain toy. Those folks are just a different breed of RV'er. I know I am not in their class at all.....I have morals....

I did visit with some friends in Arizona a couple of weeks ago that told me about parking next to five of them, followed in by a class C in the same caravan. He told me in talking to the class C driver, they were employees of the five owners. All they did was follow them all over the country.....getting paid....doing the cooking, cleaning and maintenance for those folks. Now that would be a challenging job.

Oh man I can't imagine that. I'm sure they are very nice people but really you can't feed yourself. I respect all those that make that kind of money and the ones that inherited it are mostly a PIA.

I have found that most who don't 'look' like they have money, have money....those that 'act' like they have more than Bill Gates.....don't have anything to speak of.

In my case, I act like I don't have any and look like I don't have any....therefore.....I don't have any!

Mark0224- Did you add the dimmer to an LED setup that came standard on your rv? I am waiting for my new Legacy to come in any day and the dimmer sounds like a good option. My Legacy will come standard with the LED awning lights.
Thanks

Thanks Phil. But it would be great if they find a site for me and you guys are there. Then I can finally get to meet you in person.

I'm really enjoying this thread. We've only had our little Salem Cruiser a few months but I'm dying to buy some lights for the awning (tacky or otherwise) but I can't talk DH into it yet. I've told him if he doesn't decide on some I WILL order the brightest, tackiest lights I can find

and a bug zapper, which here in Texas qualifies as entertainment

and a light that attracts insects so we can hang our starlings cage outside so he can hunt fresh game ;-)

I bought a set of LED's at lowes. Double sided tape on the back. Attached them to the metal flashing under the topper awning of the large kitchen slide. Ran the wire down the side of the slide, tucked in and out of site. Extension cord too. I then run the extension through the round access bay in the top of the front storage bay to plug it in. Dont have to plug or unplug them when using the slide. Use the remote to turn them on/off and change colors. Has worked great so far. No issues. I can snap some pics and post if needed.
