LED lights have been great but not so great in the bathroom. bought a small 12v florescent light in a weatherproof case to install in the ceiling above the shower. roughly a foot to foot and a half to run the wire in the ceiling from the current lights in the bathroom.

warm white is the best for indoor! bright white outside for P#%$# off the neighbours lol

We're talking about going standard with LEDs! What do you think?

I wonder why manufacturers don't offer "boondocking" packages. LEDs, bigger tanks, better batteries, solar... there are enough folks that would buy just because it costs more, but for those of us that really look for rigs to get off the grid, it could save us hundreds of hours of modification time, as well as the some of the usual expense increase of buying individual parts.

We've been talking about it here: Wildcat Dry Camping Package

LEDs are just one step. Wildcat already features larger than average tanks. Batteries and solar are still under review...

LED lights (both interior and exterior) are now standard equipment on all Wildcats.

Further, we recently changed to a glass lens (vs. plastic) which both softens the look and enhances the brightness/color.

Slowly replacing the lights I need. Now having LED replacements for 1 foot fluorescent tubes sent to me. 4200K seems to be the right light output. The 12volt bulb fixtures I am replacing with new fixtures. The replacement LEDs does not give off enough light. The only one I do need and can not find is an LED bulb that can replace the vanity bulbs. The ones I have found so far look crappy.

Hi Chris. Can you tell me if this will be applicable to the Wildcat Maxx (West coast) as well?
