I wish I had seen that before I cut all those roughly-circular blotches of filter gel. Freehand with scissors. Looks fine in the end, though. 17 in my trailer, not counting the sink and bathroom lights.

Contest over! We actually have two winners.

My wife is going to cut the rest of the material and I will see how many are left. Pm me to be the third winner if we have enough.

The film that I used was from B&H. It is their stock number GA1543S. It really makes a difference.

Can I get a reference for the Fiskars Circle Cutter?

Thanks

I got the Fiskars Circle Cutter on Amazon. It cuts from 1" to 8" diameter circles.

Easy Fix for warming up those bright LED lights

Thank you - should have thought of that myself. Ordered.

Like so many others have said those bluish LED lights are horrible (in our 2017 27’ AS). I finally got around to buying the gel sheets “pcskier” bought, and just finished installing them all. I tried one layer, than two to see what we liked. We settled on one layer as two seemed a little too orangish.

I have a circle template from past drafting use, and office stores likely have them. The circle measured for the lights was about 1-⅞” diameter. My template was either 1-Ύ” or 2”. I used a sharpie and the 1-Ύ” size, and then scissors to roughly cut outside the sharpie line. All fit fine.

Next up was how to remove the light lens. I tried a few dental picks, did not work, then eventually a box/utility knife-bingo. I soon learned, without any mistakes, just insert the tip between the inner and outer rings, then wiggle it while pushing in a little harder. Sort of like shucking an oyster! Another tip- use a sharp sharpie to make a small ref mark on the two rings as otherwise one has to try to find the alignment necessary to seat the rings. Marks can easily be erased with lighter fluid (naphtha).

I also wanted to tackle the two wall scounce shades to tone those down. I cut the gel into a rectangular piece, something like 4” wide by 14” or something so the gel fills the inside of the shade. No need to glue or anything else. I love the orangish shades, much better than the harsh white.

Like others have said, the difference is amazing. One sheet of gel was plenty for our 1 layer. I will use gel on the outside door overhead light to tame that overly harsh light. Maybe two layere for that, will see.

I am replacing the LED light strip running along the underside of the awning too. Easy to do using the stick-on LED flexible tape. I am happy with using Superbrightleds.com products. I bought their waterproof 2700K 16’ spool and it came with connectors on both ends. I will wait until spring for install when the aluminum is warm to achieve better adhesion. Excited to see how much better that looks than what AS installed.
