New Aire Wall Lights Repair

The bottom post for one of my lights fell out. The nut fell off and was behind the fixture. Sans the washer. I used a couple of my own to repair. There was virtually no slack in the wiring as a lot of careful pulling got me to where I could repair. Thought Iíd take pics so you can see why it looks like in case you encounter this ..

I used another fixture to compare where all the spacers go (there are 8; 10 if you count the two pairs mashed together that form one). Fortunately I didnít lose those behind the sofa.

Thx for posting. I specíed these in on my 18 DSDP build. Really like the bubble glass look. Although, the color temp of these are whiter than the overhead lights they installed. I had been interested in changing out the bulb/strip for RGB.

On my 18 DS there was also no slack in the wires, funny because most things have a couple of feet of extra wire.

Just changed all the wall lights out in my 2016 Ventana. I had to cut the old light wires as close as possible to the lights in order to have enough wire to splice the new lights. I had maybe two inches of wire to work with. Had the DW to hold several so it wouldn't go back inside the wall. I'm not sure what the fix would be if they went back into the wall. I understand saving 6 inches of wire on five lights adds up in the end, but dang using almost all the wire that comes with fixtures is going a little far.

On my 2015 DS the light fixtures above the mirror in the master bathroom, came off the wall. They were screwed in with two wood screws each. But the wall material is like a compressed cardboard. So they just stripped from the vibration. Was not impressed by the workmanship.
I glued and screwed with 4 screws each a piece of real wood, than screwed the lights to it. The wood fits in the recess, so it is not visible. I'm so glad I have a good workshop to do all that.
But the house is selling in a month, so no more work shop :(

As I look toward retirement, I donít think I could live without my tools. Hard choices to make. And yes it takes a workshop to raise a motorhome.
