Reading Lights for bedroom in Travel Trailer
« on: December 08, 2017, 10:25:30 AM »
I wanted some reading Lights on each side of the bed in my EVO 2360 Travel Trailer. The center light on the shelf above the bed was unsatisfactory and to bright plus you had to sit up to reach it. It was very disturbing if the other person or spouse was trying to sleep. I had done this mod once before in a motor home that I had, and decided to do the same thing with my travel trailer. My requirements were that the Lights had to be adjustable and independent of each other so that they could be adjusted and turned on or off without disturbing the other person or spouse in the other side of the bed. For more information and how I did it go to the link below.

Those look awesome! I am dying to do something similar. You also answered a HUGE question I always had...where the F were the wires to the darn switch lights that are mounted under a cabinet. And now I know.

For late night reading do you usually have a warm white light set up or a day light white set up?

These are warm white 12v reading lights that can be directly connected and hard wired

Neat solution! Even better is a Kindle Paperwhite; more than adequate for reading at night and does not disturb the other person.
