LED Lighting Suggestions Needed for New RV Metal Storage Building

Good Morning! I would be most appreciative of make and model LED lighting suggestions for a new rv storage metal building I have just built. It is 30w x 70d and 20' in height. Thank you in advance! Jeff...

P. S. - spacing suggestions appreciated too!

Just built a 30x40 pole barn. I installed one fixture (2 total) in opposite corners.


4' Linear High Bay Shop Light 2
No Dimming / Cool White (5700K) / none $299.98

Subtotal $299.98
Shipping $0.00
Total $299.98 USD

cheaphighbays.com

I was looking for fixtures made in the US as these are. Expensive but they illuminate the shed with only these 2 lights.

I don't have a particular model or brand, but my suggestion would be "High Bay" type lights that are LED. They will last and last and last, use a lot less power than an HID/Sodium Vapor/Mercury Vapor style light. When I finally decide to redo my detached garage and replace the fluorescent fixtures that are in it, they will be LED and enough to make it like daylight inside.

Costco has 4' LED fixtures and bulbs. Run them down the sides as well as some in the middle. I put switched outlets on the ceiling of my workshop - two sets switched individually. Plugged 4' fixture into the outlets. Easy to move them around or change spacing for best illumination. Turn on all or some via the two switches.

I have also used Hyperikon brand LED lights and have been impressed with them, however the main thing I would suggest is to install the light on the side walls, not the ceiling. It seems everything I want to look at around the outside of the coach while it is in the shed is on the walls or in the basement compartments, where ceiling mounted lights don't illuminate well. I also rarely care how well lit the roof of the RV is.

Agree. I have an occupancy sensor in my workshop/garage. Greatest thing since sliced bread.
