I have the strips in all my overhead fluorescent fixtures from I did not remove the ballasts for the old bulbs, in case I ever want to change back. I just unplugged the wire to the ballast.

I used the bright white only for areas where bright light is needed to perform tasks. Over galley counter (under cupboard), overhead by closet. I put four bright white strips in the bath for makeup (for my wife....NOT me) etc. All the rest are warm white. I am happy with them.

I replaced all the lights in my trailer with LEDs from led4rv. Bright white over sink, in bathroom, reading lights and over table. All others are warm white. Am very happy with them. The flouresenct are replaced with a adhesive backed strip. I just cut the wire going to the balast and connected the strip wires. LEDs are polarized so make sure the lights work before doing a permament connection. For the duel bulb lamps I used 13 led light and brighter 18 led light. I feel the leds put out more light than the bulbs I replaced.

Hey Guys.

I'm just about to do this same thing with led4rv lights, but I have one question:

Can I double-up/stagger two of the strip lights so that I solve the problem of wonky looking 18" lights in 24" overhead panels? Will it suck too much electricity?
