RV ideas

I just picked up  a little 100 watt inverter an the Home_Despot for under $10.00 They plug into a cig lighter socket and it powers a 12 watt CFL for hours without getting hot. It also has a USB charge port and is very small.

The idea is to install one of these near every areas I want to use a normal 120 volt CFL light. It is less costly than buying more Thin-lite fixtures, and have other practical uses, like charging your electronic devices and more
