Ditto for the 120VAC flourescent fixture on my 91Scamp13' -- It is hardwired under the ratfur and I've never bothered to trace to exactly where (my best guess would be to the 120VAC duplex outlet near the breaker box on the outer wall under the sink) -- The two Bargman 12VDC fixtures on the overhead kitchen cabinet go to a fuse panel that used to be in my converter when I used to have a converter.

Hard wired 110 flourescents, eh? Once again, I've learned something new!

I don't think I've ever seen a 110 flourescent fixture that was hard-wired into the 110 trailer wiring.
Mine is hardwired. The big question is why do they mount it on the wall rather than neatly out of sight on the bottom of the cabinet?

There are some light fixtures that have both 12volt light bulbs and 120 volt light bulbs.
but the ones I know about you have to be hooked to shore power for the 120 volt to work.

That's an excellent question, Patrick! That way there would have been two less holes in the exterior wall of the egg and the light would be less likely to shine directly into the eyes of a shorter person.

sometimes I run mine on 12volts. the tow should charge the battery while driving.
I found that if I stopped along the way the battery would discharge if I didn't turn the fridg off.
and it takes a long time to recharge.
