Re: Rope lighting

LED rope lights are best. They use less electricity and they are brighter than to other types. They also do not burn out.

Re: Rope lighting

I love my rope lighting! I use it most of the time, even though I have other lights to choose from. Mine is incandescent, but it is not hot to the touch. The lighting is fairly dim, but that is exactly how I want it. If I want brighter lighting I just turn on other lights. Usually if I'm hanging out in the bus, it is night-time, and I'm just chillin', or on the computer, so all I want is a spotlight on my table, and mellow lighting everywhere else. I recently came across a bunch of rope lighting, maybe 50' of the stuff, at a garage sale which I got for basically free, and am looking forward to using that outdoors when hanging out at night. I'll just string it up on my awning/easy-up or on the side of the bus, or wherever.

Re: Rope lighting

I'd chew on you for showing me all that stuff, but I'm alllllll the way over here and you're allllllll the way over there and I'm too lazy to drive and bite you.

Bontragers Rv Surplus in White Pidgin Michigan has those cabinet locks for $2.50 each. Didn't really check to see how many.
