RV LED Lighting: Exterior and Underbody Kits

LED Underbody Light Kits For Your RV

While you are busy getting the interiors of your RV looking great and well lit up, let’s have a think on the exterior for a few. Take a look at how it looks on the outside at night and if it needs any extra lights. You might be surprised.

The RV is going to be your home for the next few days, weeks, months or indefinitely, so you’ll want to decorate it like you would decorate a house. And no outdoor decoration is complete without DIY LED underbody light kits.

They are not only easy to use but also an affordable way to give your RV a fresh look and keep the rodents away during the night too.

RV LED Lighting Exterior and Underbody Kits

Bluetooth Lights vs. Remote-controlled Lights

There are typically two ways to control the LED underbody light kits. Both names are self-explanatory. The Bluetooth on your phone connects with the Bluetooth of the under lights, which you can use to switch-on, switch-off, and dim and increase the lights. The second option you have is a remote control, which comes with the kit.

A Bluetooth control is better because you don’t need to replace any batteries. Also, remote controls are lost easily, especially if you have small kids traveling at home who get into all types of things and lose it.

Now it’s a party!

Things to consider while buying LED Underbody Light Kits

If you are a first-time buyer, the many options in the market might be confusing for you. And that’s why we have five things you need to look for before finalizing the right pic:

1. Warranty

The most crucial part of your purchase is a great warranty since the lights will be exposed to harsh weather, water, and winds all the time you’re on the road. Generally, companies offer 10 years of warranty but there are a few that offer a lifetime warranty. If you find one that does, grab it. You never know what can fly up on the road from a tire, or other accidents that can occur out there.

2. Durable design

The lights should come wrapped in a protective film like polymer that protects it from wind, dust, water, extreme cold, and extreme heat. The metal fixtures should have an anti-corrosive coating and protect the lights from shock and pressure.

3. Rated Lighting Time

Durable design and product life go hand in hand because using good quality materials prolongs the life. Whichever product you choose, should offer at least 50,000 hours of light without getting yellow or dull. Some companies also offer lights that work underwater too.

4. Wiring Size and Length

Since you will be using the lights for your RV, go for a truck under light kits because they come with extra long wires. The car kits are smaller, so you might need extra wires. Yes, we know they can be a pain to find.

5. Cleaning

There should be practically no cleaning required. Even if you want to clean them, use a dry paper or cloth for the work.

6. Easy to install

You will install the kit on your own, so they need to be easy to install. The kit should come with everything you need from an installation guide and lights to wires, connectors, and remote control. They should be a universal fit and can install on any RV or motorhome.

Under light colors not permitted in the United States

*a quick note on safety and the law. Do check your own state laws out for yourself.

There are two types of under lights — LED and neon. Regardless of the ones that you are using, green, blue, and red lights are not permitted to be “on” while on the road since they should only be used during an emergency by emergency vehicles.

Crowded and high-traffic states like California and New York have stricter rules for safety. For example, in California, you can switch on under lights only when you are in places other than public areas. In Vermont, you will be fined if you keep the lights switched-on while driving. On the other hand, the Alaska state government only allows subtle under light colors like amber, yellow, and white.
