I have fluorescent lights T-12 86 watt for 4 bulbs. 5 hours run time for 3 days. frying pan- 1150 watts. 3 hours =3450 watts coffee pot- 900 watts. 3 hours run time =2700 watts phone charger- 6 watt per charger. 3 people with 3 hours apiece = 486 watt 3 days led light strip 2 watt per ft. total of 48 total ft. 96 watt and 15 hours of run time = 1440 total I have 8506 watts /708 amps what type of battery should I get? (marine deep cycle?) what's the quantity of batteries I should get? what size inverter do I need to run? thanks for the help! P.s I have no idea if these numbers are correct. I'm not very smart with electrical.

Hello Everybody and ride revival! I am looking for some good advice on how to get a clean professional and practical install of putting some strip lights on my trailer. I have a 8.5x16' enclosed trailer that I am installing RGB strip lighting on the bottom side of the trailer. the lights I bought come with 3M tape pre-installed on the lights but what I am worried about is that perhaps one day that tape will wear out and I will be driving down the road with the (fairly expensive) lights bouncing down the road. what would be some alternatives to permanately installing these lights to the side of the trailer? I have considered adding some extra bonding material (epoxy perhaps?) onto the strip lights and then applying directly to the side of the trailer but then I would be worried about damaging the lights or trailer siding in the event of needing to remove it. another alternative would be using the 3M tape along with some sort of fastener that would allow me to run the light through the fasteners and then bolt/ screw it into the siding of the trailer. (probably with some sort of gasket under neath to prevent any water from coming in) i would appreciate any input on the install! I am very meticulous with my work as well and I am open all suggestions. Thanks RR and fellow enthusiasts!
