Post 12v ceiling lights changing to 120v?

can I use household ceiling lights instead of 12 volt ceiling lights-12 volt lights don't look as nice.problem I think would be wiring.i believe 12 v has 2 wires and 110v has 3 wires.is it possible and if so ,how.or does anyone no where to find nice satin nickel 12v lights. finally I no 12v items run from battery,but when plugged to shore power does power come from shore or do I still have to keep batteries in .thanks in advance jesse-1995 Fleetwood bounder 40 foot

You cannot change the 12 volts to 120 volt lights. Do a search for better RV lights. As far as being plugged in . . . there is a converter that runs the lights and all other 12 volt stuff as well as keeping the batteries charged.

Or you could get your nice 110 fixture and connect it to 12V wiring....
THEN get a 12V bulb that looks EXACTLY like a 110 bulb (sold most anywhere)
