After seeing one of Techno100's projects on here I bought some self adhesive led strip in cool white from China about a year ago.I have installed a length along the top of the lockers on each side of the lounge and each strip has a dimmer switch with a remote control.Total cost was less than 30.So far they have been reliable and we use them all the time we are in the motorhome.

I'm also an advocate of LED replacement bulbs, I bought a lot from China for my last van and never had a single problem.
I bid for 10 x G4 5050 warm white from eBay for my new van, won the auction on Sunday with a bid of 2.75 and free postage!
They arrived this morning and I fitted them this afternoon, only problem I had was a few of them didn't work until I reversed the wiring on the bulb holders as LEDs are polarity sensitive.
I'm now waiting for 4 x M11 LED spots from China bought for 3.75 with free postage, only drawback will not get them til the end of the month but still in time for Peterborough.
As has been said previously, buy cheap and get plenty of spares.

I made Cab overhead lights by coiling a length of strip leds into the top of travel sweet can and fastening these onto the cab roof. Work a treat. only 8mm deep, wired into the courtesy light switch. Naturally tarted the tin lids up with a metal tape surround so they look good.
