I installed warm white led strip lights with a transformer for when I am on AC.

I now realize on solar power the "transformer block" takes too much power for my inverter. For my existing batteries and inverter which will be upgraded shortly.

If I want to wire them directly to the (12v) system.
  • Any suggestions on that wiring? Do I have to go all the way back to the battery and run off the positive and negative?
  • I want to put an in-line fuse on the hot side? Any size suggestions?
  • The specs for the lights use 32 watts for 16 ft of warm white lights.
  • I do have a dimmer in line on both units.
Many thanks,
