    I have a customer that wants the trunks of his king palms trunks wrapped with LED string lights added to an existing 12vac landscape lighting system.

    My problem is I cannot find any 12vac string lights for the project.

    Hoping that someone will have a work around/solution.

    Thanks

    To my knowledge, it does not exist. I'd recommend running a 120v power source to the palms.

    If you are stuck on low voltage, why not uplight it from the ground with standard bullet lights?

    I have found that this company www.seasonalsource.com is a good source for holiday lights, etc. But no 12 volt offerings.

    Trying to find 12Vac LED linear 'tape' light, that is IP67+ is very challenging. I am working with a couple of manufacturers of fantastic 24Vdc product trying to get them to acknowledge that there would be a viable market for 12Vac product. Time will tell.
