Waterproof? I see "Weatherproof". Same thing? No.
I've looked at them and they are given a rating. The best seem to be IP-54 in the LED strips. So the first digit is dust resistant
(5) Protected against dust limited ingress, no harmful deposits.
The second digit is water resistant rating
(4) Protected against water splashed
from all directions, limited ingress permitted.
My concern is that any strip lights under the trailer or on the rub rail get very wet driving in a rainstorm.
I see LoLoHo added LED strips behind the rock guards. That's probably a good area. Under the body???
The good news is the strips are inexpensive, so if one goes out it's not a major expense.
I added an LED strip above my cabinet in the front. Since its powered by USB, I drilled a small hole in the cabinet top and get power from the cabinet with the DVD.
At first I thought it was too much, but I've come to love the indirect lighting. Nothing shows unless you're 7' tall.
