Rivet LIghting Upgrades

Hi Michelle,

Good job. I too replaced the 12” light over the sink and prep space with an 18” unit in my Excella. I also replaced one in the hall between the bathroom and the closet. Very dark in there. What to do with the extra 12s? Simple replace two 12s that weren’t working.

The factory lights certainly look better than the Thin-Lite units in mine.

Vaughan

My switch is next to my sink and my hand are usually dry by the time I turn it off.

Water resistant light for shower

PERKO 1253-DP1-WHT


Coming from a sail boat background, we're aware of several 12V lights that can be used outdoors on a boat. These lights have seals that allow exposure to more moisture, which promotes corrosion.

We installed this Perko light in the shower of our 1974 31' center bath. The switch is very water resistant (i.e. corrosion resistant). Obviously, the light was installed away from the direct stream of the shower. Yes, it does use a type 1156 bulb, so it draws more amperage. We only used when showering to minimise the power draw (and we lived to tell this tale . . . .)

I went for the florescent for two reasons. I already had it. And I need more light. The low profile of the florescent light is a plus in a confined space.

Our various Silver Streaks always had a 12V lamp mounted just inside the shower door, high up on the wall. Brand is JENSEN, with a face mount sliding switch.. Age on ours is the same as the trailer, nearly a quarter-century. It is great having a light, and we have two people showering daily for periods much longer than a boondocker. Also, humidity is 80% or better since May where we have been. Ergo, I don't see a problem with a corrosion-resistant lamp fixture mounted properly. If it went I'd go for a $$$ sailboat piece.

Go Hi Tech

Here's the wifey's hi tech solution to the dark closet . Even though there are obvious issues, she loves it and it reminds here of childhood. BTW, it's battery powered and stays cool.
