blue light special

I just put on blue led lights from an auto accessory company; under the trailer, front and back. Helps me find it at night. And looks cool.
Attached are a couple of pictures. There was an attachment for keeping the lights blinking with the music, but the wife said "too much"...

Blinking would work well at Burning Man... the techno beat is hard to miss....

I got mine from here:

https://1000bulbs.com/category/led-rope-light/

I'm actually using incandescent type, 12 volt rope lights - the 12 volt LED's are about 4 times more costly! I may update with the LED types in the future...as it stands now, I only use the 'blue halo' lights when we're plugged into shore power, due to the higher electrical load...

I got them from below.
Now, mine are quite cool, but Mexray beats me out! Nifty. It looks a trailer from TRON.

I stayed away from rope lights or neon lights to keep the battery drain low. I use it in a lot of off-beat campgrounds.

Running the wiring was, as usual, challenging. I have the controller disabled, and just use it as a junction box, with a switch under the TV near the refer. I would like to get a 12 v timer to turn it off at 1100 pm, but don't know where I would get one. Anyone know?

We have yet to get a good picture, But our 12volt rope lights are installed on the lower belt line like Mexray's. They make just enough indirect light see what is going on and not to disturb the neighbors (if they go to bed before us). I have seen Ctdair's and I like them too. We may end up with neons AND rope lights.

We're all giving a new meaning to the 'House of Blues'....

I've also got some of the 12 volt blue LED 'tubes' that I wanted to mount underneath, but just haven't gotten around to crawling under to mount the brackets, etc...

I've also got a couple of 10ft sections of Lexan 1 inch tubing that the rope light fits into, that I envision to be able to fit into the flag pole holder, for a more 'vertical' visual effect...the Lexan tubing is a bit on the 'bendy' side, and mating the two sections together is a challenge - my latest plan is to insert a 6ft piece of 1/4 inch SS rod inside the tubing at the joint to make it more rigid...we'll see..

My better 1/2 says I spent way too much time fiddling with things...Since my name's not 'Nero', I guess its OK...
