    Hi all

    Newbie again. Can you convert 240v rope lights to DC?

    No doubt they have the resistors built into the line to handle the 240 perfectly depending on the amount of lights used.

    I'd like to hook up 6 existing rope light on shaped frames but don't have an AC controller (this year...)

    Of course I could pull off the rope from the frames and wrap led strings on them but the budget for this years lights has been used up, so am looking for other options.
