Hi Ron,

i will have to dig into this, not sure what you mean with reversed polarity situation.

Well, let's just say if you happened to do a little bit of wiring work and accidentally hooked up the DC with the leads reversed the 40 amp fuses would blow and your converter would be protected from damage.

Hi guys,

i found my invoice for the LED strip so now i'm able to tell you which one we used.

I bought it over here in the Netherlands but it's a simple warm white LED strip which is waterproof. I'm sure you can get i somewhere closer to your neck of the woods.

LED STrip: Voordelige leverancier van ledstrip, spots, inbouw ledverlichting, led tuinverlichting, flood lights, ledstrip profielen ....
Controller: http://www.ledstrips-kopen.nl/contro...877111442.html

The ALU LED profile: Led strip profiel plat opbouw 1,5 meter lengte compleet *-* Ledstripkoning: RGB Led Strips- Witte Led Strips - Aquarium Led Strips - Accessoires

As stated, all dutch firms this time but i'm sure you'll find the same stuff closer by home.
