I have used them for years and have had no major problems. Ihave always used5 sets plugged in together without a hitch. I HAVE NOT used them on my AL controller. They are a neat effect, however, be careful of the following: 1. If the ground is hard the stakes will break easily. 2. If you pull them up by the stick, the stakes will come out. 3. Kids play around them and they break easily. I have many of the bottom stakes cabled tied to the candlestick portion. I continue to use them, they make a nice effect. I try to keep the lines straight, and I start a hole with tent stake before I push them into the ground. Good Luck.
There is a famous horticultural showplace in my state that has a beautiful massive Christmas display each year. I found out that they replace all their minis, c7's and c9's every year. They do this because it cuts down on the number of dark lights in the display.How often do you change out your lights? I have some strands (non-led) going on 6 years. I do however change my C7 roof line lights each year just for this reason. Any thoughts or idea of the average life of lights in (season) years?
I purchased an LED sign. You can get them at BJ's or Sams.They are a little expensive but I have had it for 7 years now.I actually havepeople look for a new message each year. I put it in the window next to my Virtual Santa and it works great. I also send greetings and the like. My house sits about 45 feet from the road so it is visible. I also have a sign that cost (if I remember) about $45.00 from Signs by Tomorrow. It is metal, has a holy leaf design and I have used it for 3 years and it still looks new. I put a spotlight on it at the front of my house. This is like a metal realtor sign you might see. Best of Luck Steve Bromley
