replacing 12 volt fixtures
« on: August 18, 2016, 08:23:01 PM »
well, here I am, a new owner of an old(ish) class a. We have only done small TT before, so this is an adventure! We bought a 2004 Winnebago sightseer with only 17,000 miles on it. Im not sure why, but it has 6 12 volt articulated arm reading lights, some of them right next to smaller adjustable reading lights. I have managed to thunk into or get caught on every one of those lights so today, out they went! (I'm dangerous with a drill driver) now I have 6 places with 12 volt wires sticking out of my walls, so my question is, what do you guys suggest I do with them? any ideas, suggestions? I hate to waste all that available power access. :D

thanx so much!

Some with USB connectors with voltage display 12 power plugs led clock. Or any 12 V led lights. Maybe  a 12 V fan?

Switching all my bulbs to led was the very first thing I did after we bought ms.Winnie. I saw some things with both 12 volt plugs and usb that I want for some, I would love a clock but haven't found a 12 volt one. A fans a good idea too, thanx all for your ideas, time to go shopping  :D
