Re: 2nd Year Mega tree
Scale back? NEVER! I have my lights like "C" with one channel per string. I had 72 strings this year. 16 red green blue white and 8 white spiral. I had planned to split them on two circuits but put a extension cord in the wrong outlet and for the first two weeks this was on one twenty amp circuit. No trips but when I noticed it I switched cords. Your only going to have one color on at a time. And most of the time that one color won't be on 100 percent all the way around.

I think Dirk was kidding with a point to make you think about power, which you have.
