Also, I am generally not very good about asking for help as I think I should be able to do anything. I had bought new lights on sale at Camper World for a really great price . After waiting and waiting, I went out a few nights ago and I just did it myself.....
Once I figured out what a ground wire was and which one it was in the vintage trailer...(all the wires were black!) I put it together easy peasy!! It puts out a warm yellow light at a fraction of the wattage of the previous lights. This is very important as I plan on spending a considerable amount of time off grid and I like doing crafts reading and puzzles. The lights before all put out a dim light which was enough to find your shoes but not enough if you wanted to do any of the close up work.
I'm looking ahead to the days when the nights and darkness are long. It is bright enough to do anything I want and with the new lights, I can choose to have on as little or as much as I want without significantly dimming others. I have left a couple of the incandescent ones so that I can choose a softer light if I want but so far when they are on I just want to watch the watts burn. The solar is holding with my usage just fine. I off course am not using the microwave but I can watch a couple hours of DVDs , charge everything I need and have had plenty of lights. The LED lights are perfect!
Here is one of the before lights
Here is one of the lights I put in.
I put one of these double LED lights in the central area and one in the kitchen area.
I didn't turn the LED lights on.... I didn't want to blind you!!
Here is one by my bed.... Looks good don't you think!!
I am as pleased as punch!! What shall I tackle next!!
I count my lights as a major success!!
Makes a gal proud!!
