You do have a choice all outside lighting is 12 volt dc, no matter if it is a brake light or a coach light, now the only time this will change is if you add some kind of 120 volt outdoor lighting, but if it is factory all your lighting inside and out is 12 volt dc.
Hope this helps and Happy Camping and also since you are looking to replace all the outdoor lighting you might want to think of indoor also and you can get all of it here with a huge savings (LED light bulb, LED light bulbs for home use and cars
) and get them DIRECT and save big money!
