I have found with rope lighting you get what you pay for. Some are not very cold weather or wt conditions friendly, or the connections are poor quality. They will cause you headaches in no time at all.
With some research I found a product that is friendly from +140 to -40 and utilises easy to use and high quality compression fillings with stainless steel pins, no corrosion worries.
Platinum Lighting on the net handles the product line I found to be the best. You can get 12V in 3/8 and 1/2 with the track or clip mounting systems most handy to put the rope where you need it. I am very happy with their price, products, hardware, and service.
I tried Cheap, they found the trash can in less then a year.
