Hello,I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to purchase low voltage lighting fixtures for my camp. The system is a simple solar 750watt/4 deep cycle system to start with a small wind generator. I was going to start off with the type you see in campers and RVs  thanks Larry

... the type you see in campers and RVs...


That is probably the best place to look.  There are dozens of suppliers on the internet.

Here are a couple.

If you supply ac power you can get high lumen per watt and directivity out of store bought screw type replacement lamps. The ones from lowes, Utili-tech.

2 and 4 foot led replacements for compact florecent retrofit to led, are great if they are the type that omit the original ballast. Even better, new fixtures built as led from the start. This is one of the best ways to distribute down-cast light at high lumens per watt for general room lighting.
 
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars. Tiny ad:
