Replacing lighting fixtures

Well this might be a dumb questions for some, so here goes.

I know nothing about electrical and we are thinking about replacing a few light fixture in our MH. We don't like the standard fixtures that have the slide switches and saw some at Camping World but they were very pricy. Was thinking about taking the one down over the dinette so I can see the size of the hole and go to home depot and look at fixtures. Now the question is, do I need a special fixture for a MH?

Replacing lighting fixtures

Not sure about all MH. But mine are all 12volt.

I did see some 12v Rv lights on eBay Think my search was something like "12v RV interior lights brushed nickel. "

Get 110V fixtures at Lowes/HD ... As most RV fixture outlets are 12V simply replace the 110 bulb with the same SIZE bulb but 12V - you wont find these bulbs at Lowes but most any large RV parts place (Camping World, etc)

They are starting to carry 12v bulbs, you have to look carefully and read the packaging thou. They may or may not have them in the size or style you want. You can just use any search site like google or dogpile and just look up 12v lights, there is no real need to add in there rv, you may find if you put rv in there that you come up with lights that are 2 or 3 or more times more expensive.

I am going to check this out. As most 12 v lighting is costly. I need a replacement light and to make them match I would have to buy two.

Now I am glad that is asked the question before going out to buy something that would not work.

Maybe, that why the fixtures were so high at CW.

Thanks!!
