Tech Talk / Re: Looking for a 12 volt light
« Last post by 8Muddypaws on Today at 11:00:49 PM »
When I made my fluorescents into ‘FrankenFixtures’ I tried bright white - too bluish, and soft white - too yellow.  In the end I used alternating strips of each color and they two blended into a natural looking light.  Most importantly the spousal unit approved.

The hardest part of the project was soldering directly onto the SM5050 strips.  The press on connectors are total crap!  (They are not made in Scotland).

I initially had problems with the LEDs overheating and installed ‘Buck’ voltage regulators in the fixtures to deal with it.  In the semiconductor world 12v = exactly 12v.  In the RV world 12v = somewhere between 10.5 and 14.5.

I tried a dozen times to post pictures but it says it’s too large and I can’t get it sized so .. hmph

I resize my pic's with Microsoft paint. But there are other programs that will resize. The picture cannot exceed 350 KB.

But back to your problem...If your inverter is only a 1000 watts it would have to be limited to a few outlets.. Have you tested all the outlets?

I have found more RV parks in California than anywhere else with the 10 and under rule.
Calif. law favors renters and  deadbeats. It is very difficult, time consuming and expensive  to evict a tenant. I got out of the rental business a long time ago.

General Discussion / Re: Does length of trailer matter?

Check out the video mentioned below... it echoes most of the advice we post here all the time, regarding the dangers of putting too big of a travel trailer behind your truck. Your towing numbers are one thing, and the "sail" effect of towing a big empty box are another aspect to consider.

Others will help you with all the technical numbers, I just want to share with you a great youtube video for you to watch, that explains that there is more than just numbers to consider.  Enjoy, glad you are here before you bought a truck or trailer.

Or Buy, Cry, Throw away, Go back and buy the 3M. It's expensive to do it that way. BTW 3M spray contact cement is a good product also. I used it to attach panels to cabinets.
37 years in the construction business and I never saved any money on cheap tools or anything else.
