  1. I also had the coms error with paypal on my phone which did not help matters
  2. I would have been ok if the power had not gone out. And of course I dont have a back up UPS
  3. I have no idea where to post this, but my experience was very eventful to say the least. I had 2 items picked out in my shopping cart and had just entered my CC number, when the power in our neighborhood went out. I scrambled for my phone to go thru the whole process once again. Checked out only to find that one of my items was already sold out. So, again thru the phone process. Luckily I was able to get one item that I picked out. Of all the times for power to go out.
  4. Thats good info to know. THis is my first project using hot glue. I will have to check out the flex seal products. Luckly I have just 1 light done.. Thanks for the info
  5. I did and it looks ok. Right now I have the intensity set at 50%. I'll tweak more when I get them all built.
  6. Here is 1 of 8 completed. Sorry for the larger size photos.
  7. Then mount the RGB module after soldering on extension wires and hot glue into place
  8. Then I had to gut the inside of the fixture...remove the lampholder and wire
  9. Here is my update to the project. First I would like to say that Amazon is a wonderful thing. Returning items is soooo easy. I ordered so many different types of landscape fixtures to see what would work, that it wasn't even funny. I had to find a fixture that would fit a sq RGB module and still have room to terminate wiring. So the first picture is what I came up with. They look a lot like the old style Malibu pathway fixtures, even down to stake and how the original wiring goes in.
  10. That was my other choice. Thanks for input. I learned my lesson many years ago on copper clad aluminum wire
  11. Good tips, I already know this. Thanks. I will be using direct burial for sure. Since I dont plan on taking down and putting up landscape lights like I would for my xmas show, I have no problem w/landscape wire. And I do use 4 cond speaker wire in my show where its warranted. BTW I am also an Elect/Tech so everything I do I take into account wire size, amps, volt drops etc.....
  12. What kind of wire did h use to interconnect the ligjts. I was thinking about sprinkler wire. I know its solid core, they r not gonna b moved
  13. Here is the completed controller box and the type of RGB modules I will be using
  14. Starting my landscape project. I am using my spare 16 channel DC board. I will have 8 RGB lights, wired in pairs, This so I dont have to buy another board at the moment. Using the square dumb RGB modules. This will also leave me with 4 spare channels for maybe single color floods. This part I am not sure about yet. I have a ton of RayWu style 4 pin waterproof connectors that I am going to use. I have written several squences already for different occasions and tested them in standalone mode. My next quest is to find an suitable style pathway landscape fixture to modify.
