i have a 2005 Apline Coach and would like to make a change in the interior lighting. Currently I have fluorescent bulbs in all of my ceiling fixtures I would like to make them work on reastats so that I can control the brightness. I would even like to use LED bulbs. Can someone give me some information on how I might accomplish this task. Would be most grateful. While I'm asking for help can someone explain the white chalking I get on my windshield during and after a rain storm. Thank for the help

Hi Jeff! Many folks have converted the florescent fixtures to LED's. You can buy LED bulbs that will directly replace the florescent but you still have to rewire the fixture. I chose to used the LED strips as you can see in the thread below.


As for the chalking, that's coming off the roof. You need to give it a good cleaning to get rid of that!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Merry Christmas!
