We decided to add LEDs behind the valances of our coach windows. We’ve seen some other brands that have a similar setup, but they appear to be down the sides of the windows and cause a lot of light bleed to the outside, even with the night shades down.

The LED strips we used are color changing (red/green/blue – RGB) strips. I also went with WiFi control modules for them so we could adjust the color and brightness from our smart-phones.
