Its funny because these sort of things never used to bother me, but is our last trailer the display on the stereo was insainly bright, like it totaly illuminated the inside of the trailer at night, the simple solution was i pulled the fuse on one sleepless night. the stupid thing was a piece of junk that we didn't use anyway.

Maybe a little fingernail polish of a similar color (blue for the blue lights, red for the red lights, amber, etc....) painted over the lens will help obscure it enough without actually illiminating it....so that it still serves it's purpose while not bothering the occupants.

No experience at this.....just kind of thinking out loud. No, thinking through the keyboard.

So JC, is this blue and red nail polish something you carry with you all the time?

Man, a guy has to really watch his back here, huh. I guess I walked right in to that one.....I even had to laugh at it.

Re: Do the fridge LED lights keep you awake at night??

It's crazy.. isn't it.. how one thing can just fixate the moment.. But under the guise of necessity it can be a life saver.. We need to leave a night light on for Sammy (our Border collie ) so that he won't freak out in the RV.. So a small light vs. a relentless 60lb dog who wants out... hmmm I can sleep with a night light..

Re: Do the fridge LED lights keep you awake at night??

Please excuse us (Alf and I)...with short attn spans,
we obviously get off subject too easily : - )
The thread is about those darn LED's keeping you awake all night!
In the 5.0, we are above all that (literally), and don't have our faces turned toward the frig. Now Alf may find himself looking in the frig sometime during the night, but that is voluntary.
Seems the simple answer..... sleep with your heads on the refrig side (think that was already suggested...so you're not looking at the lights) or get a 5.0 : - )
