any point in 120v lighting?
I just bought a boat. Well, I mean more accurately I just bought 15,000 pounds of rust.
The boat needs a complete refit, AND a re-wire.
And I'm just starting to ponder this all, and I'm definitely going to be outfitting the boat with some high-end LED lighting. probably the sensibulb or something similar.
I'm pretty sure I will not be putting a 120v genny in, instead I will do a DC generator. So thinking about this... Is there really any reason to put in 120 lighting? I'm thinking maybe one big fluorescent light in the engine room, but even then if I can get away with a 12v light, why not run ALL of the shorepower stuff off battery and a 40a charger? especially if 99% of it is LED?
