We went to a USA Prepares Expo in Lebanon, MO and came across a booth that had these LED lights for sale. We bought 4 reels of these type of LED lights. Allen got very creative and figured out a way to hook them up to the 12 volt power source that is already in our camper. Now we have LED lights that light up the whole camper. The reason why we are excited about this is because while we are currently running on 1 solar panel and 1- 12 volt battery and the battery on the camper our power can be limited especially in cloudy and rainy weather. The regular lights in the camper take a lot of power to use them. Now we can light up the whole camper even on limited power and not be in the dark when power is low. The cost for these type of LEDs was $48.00. A bargain if you have priced these type of lights.
