At a price like that I see no reason not to have a few extra on hand, just in case. :shock:

Hey... it's only $2,525 over on Amazon... I wonder if it qualifies for free shipping :)

I have a few LED strips in my teardrop. Cheap set from eBay. They've been going strong since I finished my build in March. :thumbsup:

LED's do not produce UV light. Bugs see UV light only. So, sorry no bugs of any quality. :shock:

It depends on the LED ... almost every TV remote uses a UV LED to send the signal across the room ...

Nope, they are usually IR, not UV. That's why they have red plastic windows in front of them.

Well, I guess that shoots down the theory of UV no bugs.

I used LED rope lighting on the inside of the Kitza Kamper and old style rope under the Kitza Kamper for a "porch light".

I like the effect of both. Who else is using rope lighting?

Most white LEDs are really UV LEDs shining on a phosphor that changes the light to visible light.

How about a 12V LED light show? I'm thinking this would be cool on the arch or underneath the tear like Rocky did:

Weatherproof RGB 12V LED Tape
