Default Replacing fluorescent lights

Thanks to another post I replaced the 5 fluorescent lighting fixtures for about $21. Using LED light strips and the ZITRADES 10MM 2PIN 10PCS LED STRIP CONNECTORS FOR 5050 SINGLE COLOR LED STRIP BY ZITRADES: Electronics I was able to inexpensively replace these lights. All you need to do is first identify the wire going from the switch to the ballast. That's your 12V wire. The other wire coming in to the light fixture and going to the ballast is the ground. Cut both of these and wire up the LED strips.

Very nice. On my old Class C, I replaced all the incandescent with LED but left the fluorescent because at the time, there was no reasonably priced alternative. It seems now there is.

I missed two bulbs which are night lights but look like fuses. Never so these types before. However they have LED replacements for them. It's interesting how the smaller bulbs are much more expensive then their incandescent counterparts, but the LED strips are not that bad for replacing fluorescent tubes. The snap on end connectors make it real easy to install.
