Re: Shore power and lights

We seem to be evolving a consensus here, and we are another example. Our cabin lighting is all LED except for one Alpenglo - in other words, all 12V, and it never occurred to us to add the storage space and inconvenience of a separate AC lighting system. One super-bright 12V halogen at the nav station for those times when you really need to see detail.

Chuckles -- I so gotta ask which you do "seldom" -- work? or use AC light? (sorry, can't help it, its just the way your answer was worded. )

Re: Shore power and lights

Bought one of those LED bulbs that just replace in the 12v sockets... they might be "warm" but they're just not bright enough for me. Decided to stay with the old style and we have an AC lamp when we need it.

12V lighting only. Well, other than flashlights and headlamps.

Re: Shore power and lights

We do have one set of 120v lights that we use at the dock. It is a string of white Christmas lights woven through a string of fake Ivy for mood lighting. Everything else is 12v LED. Will be replacing the 120v lights with 12v soon. Already have them, just need to be wired. They give a much warmer feeling in the cabin than using dome or reading lights.

These are their 12v replacements. http://www.environmentallights.com/13364-150393r.html
