Outside Light

I am remodeling a 1974 Excella 500 in which everything will be shore power and nothing on 12v any longer. However, I want the light above the door and the light on the front side to still work (I have attached a PDF picture of the lights I am speaking of). Any good suggestions for a smaller converter that I can use and control these lights by one switch?

Thanks in advance.

Are you not planning to tow this trailer? What about resale down the road? Please really think through your idea of no 12 volt in the trailer.

msmcv51 & zigzaggozzi,

I should have explained more. I purchased this Airstream totally gutted from a gentleman who was going to turn it into a mobile food trailer. After gutting it, he decided not to do that. I have had a dream for sometime to own a mobile cigar lounge and have always wanted it in an Airstream. My trailer there fore will be a mobile business and will not use a 12v system. I will either hook to shore power or my generator.

I hope this helps a bit.
