My 2nd set of those cheap-o LED strip lights ($25 off Amazon) have crapped out. I've had them on the top of the belt and they do ok for a while, but eventually, too much exposure to water/rain (and I suspect ice/snow in the winter) makes them give out.
So I was thinking about the way AS installs their all white LED strip under the awning near the very top of the trailer and then plugs it in using the wiring connection shown in the pic below to a switch and dimmer control.
Got me thinking - could I just run a strip of colored LEDs up there in that same location and splice or hack in to that cable to get both factory white and non-factory colored LEDs going at the same time?
The sets I've purchased however have a remote control that allows you to select multiple colors and intensity through an IR receiver. I'd have to figure out how to maintain that capability or I'd lose the multiple color options.
For now - I'm going to get a 3rd set and put them back on the top of the belt because I love it so much when it works 😀
I guess another option would be to pull out the silver plastic belt material and put the strip inside the belt itself. That would provide a little more protection than riding on top. It might be very cool if there were a CLEAR version of that belt material so I could install the LED strip and then the clear plastic cover over it all contained in the belt line.
What do folks think about making either of these options work?
