That's what I did to mine. Works very nicely.

Yep! But once I perfect my uni-directional 12V EMP gun (UDEMP) , it won't be a problem! And neither will Priuses, speed cameras, and people that cut me off in traffic, unless they happen to be driving a Model T with a magneto and copper strips for plug wires...... It's gonna be a lot of fun!!

The flux-capacitor is on back order......

I've been thinking about adding some enclosed speakers to the curb side bays wired to the front stereo with enough wire to pull them out of the bay and hang on the window tracks under the awning. Pretty sure I could put a volume control in the bay where they connect or maybe a wireless control. I like some music outside too, I just hate having to crank it inside to hear it through the window.

Well I am happy to report the internal LED conversion is complete! All 23 of the old fluorescent fixtures have been modified and replaced with LED tape.



The old ballasts were removed before they failed!



And the pile of fluorescent ends:



If anyone would like any of this, let me know and I can bring them to WOG.

Not odd. I enjoy doing projects on my coach just as much (ok almost as much) as I do traveling in it.

Anyway, I could not for the life of me figure out how to get the ballasts out, so I just cut the wires and left them. Now that you've shed some light on this (no pun intended...ok maybe it was intended...) I'm thinking I should pull all the fixtures down again (ugh!!) and follow your instructions and remove the drippy things!

Bring them to WOG anyway and put them in the Flea Market, someone might take them there.
