  1. A few post ago I stated what new props I was adding and said I would need yet another controller. Orville to the rescue! He sent me a message and said if I wanted to take the drive to Orlando he would gift me some items. Well he did , a 16 channel ac controller and all his Halloween deco. Yesterday we drove from Fort lauderdale to Orlando to Orville's home and Picked up the product. The weather was great and it is about a three hour drive . I am very great full for his gift. Of course I am all fired up and cant wait to start programming in the new props. I plugged in the controller and changed the ID to fit with the other and it works great. Orville ,thank you so much !!!!!!!! David DLH LITES
  2. I am a big fan of C7'S and have been looking for ones that look like the old incan's--found them at Christmas Lights.ETC. They came yesterday and I am impressed,very impressed! The bulbs are a tad smaller than the regular incans but that doesn't matter, the colors are amazing, they are a lot brighter. They have a new opticore Led which doesn't show a hot spot in the bulb. plus they can be dimmed . I bought multi color,blue and red,a box of each to try. Will be ordering more while they are on sale. I have tons of C7's stringers so I just got the bulbs. Have three 6 foot artificial flocked trees for in front of the garage they will look great with the three colors for next year. Yes now I need another controller,gezzzz it's always something! David
  3. Ah Retirement, hoping for that late fall, just turned 70 , 52 years in the high end audio biz is enough !!!! David
  4. HMMMMM over the last three years I have built four ctb 16 kits , they all work great , will be building one or two more.spring sale ! Question is what version are these kits, I see no info on the boards,they all have the red led. I run only leds, no pixels or rgb, an dont plan to. David
  5. Hey Chuck, The big ones are wire, they are six feet. I couldn't pass them up 40 bucks each, they had lites that worked, but last year they got water in them. They are used from a thrift store so last spring I re lit them with new 3/8 pure white lite rope and also blue. The smaller ones are from target ,40" hey are plastic but sturdy, and I added blue lites to those also. Thanks for the look !!!! David
  6. Yes , our street only has six houses ,they turn off the main street and fly to the stop sign and go right thru ,crazy folks !!!!!!! Where is a cop when ya need one?????
  7. Here ya go ,Ladies and Gents---------Ridding the Line -Michael Martin Murphy-----Vimeo.com/382510454, enjoy . It got upstaged by a uninvited fat raccoon. David
  8. I had same problem with phillips c9's also very hard to repair those, they are also the ones all the blue led's only lasted one year. Last year I bought three sets 150 g20 leds from wally world, didn't notice each led had a small hole in the top till take down . Lots of the lites had water in them and one set was half out . the hole is tiny , what a pain . BUT we did have major rain this December. Now why would they make lite set with a hole in the lenses. I have some led c7 with holes also,go figure. David
  9. Yeah, I will be adding more , got plans let's just see if I get there. Just got three 5 foot art trees that are flocked, those will get three channels each ,multi,a solid color and pure white . they will be in front of the garage door , in front of those I have planed a motorized "Believe" sign that would move from flat to vertical then back to it's housing, that will be lit with leds and made from coro, will also have floods . I found a geared drapery motor with adjustable stops that should do the trick , well at least I have a year to figure it all out. Waiting for spring sale itching to build yet another controller kit, and maybe a RGB flood system. This past year I bought a bunch of lites from Earle Talley , they can be seen in my display on the four trees I added for 2019, four art trees three channels each with multi,solid and pure white on each tree-Thank you Earle ,everyone loved them. I am still trying to wrangle the thrift store where I bought the 6 foot wire snowflakes for the other two . I re lit the ones I used this year last spring with new white and then blue. This year I added blue nets to the front drive hedges so it is multi then blue 2 channels. the day after Christmas I was at our Wally world at 5:45 AM to get the blue nets at 50% off for the much larger hedge along the drive way . There will be 18 sets of multi and 18 sets of blue on that one hedge. Well that's so far ,the year is young! hehehehehe David
  10. Thanks Gents for the info. I do use the child protective caps on all the female connectors as you suggested before. This year I found several vampire plugs that were full of water ,they were in the middle of the big hedge well off the ground . The only thing laying on the ground was a lot of long spt1 cables in a bundle across the drive way. I do have a question , I had three controllers into a ac strip plugged into one GFCI once I moved one to a none GFCI outlet things got better . All of the lites are LED ,could three controllers just cause a slight enough imbalance to trip the GFCI. The fourth controller was into its own GFCI and never triped and was controlling four wire trees with c9's sitting on pavers on the ground . Any more suggestions would be great. Of course the night of our Christmas party it poured and no lites for the first two hours then it all came back on. David
  11. Jr, I think the trouble stems from the net lites. There are thirty nets on the shurbs at the drive way and eighteen on the big hedge along the fence which is thirty feet long , Look at my display DLH LITES, of course they are all plugged into each other . The monsoon storms soaked all the male/ female junctions, which were about four feet off the ground, even the plugs fuse holders had water in them. We had three major storms in December, nine inches of rain in four hours alone. I will be looking at making a gasket from rubber with double stick tape on both sides for all these plugs ,just maybe that will help. I will keep all posted. David
  12. Thanks Mich, the santa was just a cut out with his arm up and I motorized him so he could wave, folks get a big kick outa him. David
  13. yes vimeo.com/382510454 let me know what ya think David
  14. Christmas-leds.com best bet, I have five six foot wire frame snowflakes that I replaced the led 3/8 rope with new led rope in pure white and blue products from there , Val was super to deal with. David
