    Has anyone come up with any clever suggestions regarding fitting some sort of LED exterior strip lighting. I was thinking of running a strip under the awning. A friend of mine has fitted some inside his boat which give off a good light with low battery usage. I have seen some on sale in Caravan and Camper shops but the prices seem rather expensive to what I have seen on ebay.

    We have it running under the awning. £5 for a 5 metre roll or 7.50 for the waterproof one from car bootsale. Connections 50p each.

    We got ours from another funster but since have bought some more to replace internal tubes.

    I got mine off fleabay......easy to connect to existing outside light.
    Really effective and bright...makes your unit stand out at night...but I
    use it for reading when its dark.

    Like this ?? A few of us have it done, seen lots at various rallies...
    Ebay China.. Think I paid £7-9 for these or something silly anyway.. Has a remote and can be on a fixed colour, flashing, fading etc..

    YEP... Great for when the music is on :) or the Funster band or Just noisy neighbours..

    Sticks on, peel off backing.. Simple..
    Or do you mean the Electrical connection ??? If so, Went through side just under the built in awning. That comes out in a top cupboard and i fitted a switch and connected into an internal spotlight 12v feed.
