Coverting VV3 from flourescent to LED lighting

Post  Luv2Camp on Sun Feb 12, 2012 3:28 am

Pics to come. I decided that I do not like the idea of having two 13 watt bulbs heating the inside of the fridge as the unit is on. I like having it lt up so I am going to convert it all over to LED. This will reduce the wattage consumes as well as increase the fridge efficiency and increase it's service life as it will not need to cycle as much.

Ordered 15 feet of bright LED flexible strip lighting and a 120v to 12v transformer. Should have in a week or so and will post pics as I make the mod!

DONE! WORKS GREAT!!!! Ripped out the wiring, ballasts and wired in LED
strip lighting. Bought the roll and 110v to 12v converter on amazon.
Total install was about an hour. Replaced the interior fans as well
while I had it apart. ENJOY!

When looking at a power supply, these LED lights pull 7.2 watts for every 3.3 feet of lighting

Nicely done! Theoretically you should be able to add in an adjustable switch to dim or brighten the lights if you wanted to right?

Can you post links to the LED lights strip and voltage converter so we know where to buy them at?

THANKS! I added links on my thread. I also added a link for the dimmer switch you can use for LED lights. I put one of these in my camper for my accent lights I installed and works great. Also added a link for connectors to the LED light cable. You have to cut the lights to length. Every 3 LED lights, there is a cut line and when you cut it, there are two small pads to solder to. If you are good with soldering and know how to "tin" the wire and solder correctly to the pad it is easy, otherwise get the connectors. If you do not know that you cannot use a regular soldering gun for PCB type work, you are probably gonna make a mess so get the connectors!
