Latest purchase, a 5m LED strip for $40 in Derby. Now to work out where to use it.

Outside obviously but on awning roll, on van under awning, cut in 2 and place on each upper awning are. Then, how to power it? Existing 12v outside light, new switch? Decisions decisions.....

After much debating, I finally installed part of the LED strip. It's on the front awning arm to provide light over the BBQ.

Sticker backed strip so it was easy to put on, just clean the surface and run it out.

then in through the wall. I've used some heat shrink to add a thin second layer over the wire to help protect it through the wall. Less risk of movement cutting the wires insulation. Went silly with silicon to waterproof it.

wound the wire around the existing wires and connect it to an existing bed light.

I'll put a photo up tonight of it going. It's a cheap remote control for on/off and flashing patterns. It dims as well.

Reasonable run without dramas has come to an end.....the 240v element in the thetford bridge has possibly died. An unscheduled stop in Karratha next week for repairs.:Cry:

@17triton All under warranty. The dealer got in touch with Thetford and sorted that it was a warranty issue. Now it's up to me to get to the nearest Thetford agent, unfortunately it's Karratha, so we'll drop in on the way through Friday week.

Gotta love the 3 year warranty, fridge included!

Shame about the fridge mate, but at least you will get it sorted under warranty and can run it on gas until you do. Great job on the LED strip light too mate.

Lucky to find an agent up that way @peterg :encouragement:
@dagree Thetford said they've tried to get an agent here but no-one is interested in doing bloody caravan stuff apparently. It's typical of Port Hedland.

Should've got @cruza driver to get one in Broome from their agent there for me and bring it down. A few hours on the sauce and I'm sure we'd have got it in.
