    Hi
    We have an Autocruise Starburst with an exterior LED strip light above the habitation door. Two bulbs have given up the ghost completely and 3 are flashing - on the way out.

    We have bought a new exterior strip of lights which the salesman said to just stick over the existing light casing. Then to cut the exisitng wires and using a wire clip attach the original wires to the new strip. I feel this will not look very attractive! There is a casing at each end of the present strip light and the new wires would not be covered by this and be visible and open to the elements.

    Any ideas? Any advise would be greatly appreciated .... :RollEyes:

    Just do as he says but on the inside of the casing, the change will be invisible, and protected from the elements. I replaced 5 bulbs in mine with a single LED strip (wired to one of the bulb holders) and now it is many times brighter. Also uses less power, which is important as I often forget to turn it off.
