I added some LED background lighting. I found that while staying in a Cracker Barrel, Wal-Mart, or some other overnight parking spot that the blue light provides decent light for the camper when just lounging around watching TV or on the PC or etc.., but are not noticeable outside with parking lot lights on. I can change them to various colors, but blue seems to work best for eyes.

They draw only about 0.5A so a very good light for Boondocking.


Good afternoon Don,
Do you have a link to the lights you bought? I like the idea of those lights for overnight camping in parking lots. :thumbsup:

Thanks!
Harry

Harry, sorry I just saw this. Don't have the specific ones I bought as it has been a while, but these are similar and there are a lot more like them on Amazon.

No problem Don. Hope all is well with you and yours. :)

I've been spending lots of time researching building my lifepo4 battery bank; a lot of the links I had saved for equipment are no longer valid. Any building battery equipment that you recommend I should have for sure to get things done?

I found a battery dealer near Atlanta (five'ish hours from me) that has new 280ah cells for $125 each. (https://www.18650batterystore.com/produ ... 520f&_ss=r)

Those 280 Ah double hole "version 3 cells" from 186500 battery store are nice.

18650 is the only place I would buy cells from. :thumbsup:

I assume you are speaking of the trailer? Lots of pics in this long thread, but the following YouTube Video captures it well.
