Most 12 volt LED strips seem to pull so little power that you can probably put quite a few on one circuit. I think when it is all done I'll have 2 light circuits, maybe 1amp each, I can't remember exactly what they draw. I got these for my storage and footlight areas: Cheapo pack of lots of strip lights at AmazonI've debated adding more LED light strips in this build. My question is how will you wire them? Are they all on separate fuses and switches or will they be wired together somehow?
Yeah I'm definitely going to do some of that--It's already about as heavy as I want so I may figure a way to install some gas struts or helper springs to when I do that. I also want to cover it with art, something fun to look at.Most LED strips are 12V so you can string a lot of them together in a row or just tie all the +'s and -'s together, then connect to a switch or dimmer... or use a switch on each line to control which lights go on/off.
AMB, when I first saw the bed folded up, I thought about all the things you could store in the spaces between the bed joists... add some vertical doors to the bottom side, and you get lots of storage in already-used space! I'm sure that's part of your plan...
I anticipate leaving the bed down a lot on camping and road trips, so was thinking of some storage options for the bed underneath. Need something kind of like drawers but I don't want heavy tracks or anything expensive to install. I was thinking of some hdpe on wood runners to make it easy to slide crates underneath.
