I don't think the "indirect" effect is anything they were after. There are two 12v lights
that anchor each end of the 110V, so the ends are blocked.
I have been reading some prior posts about lighting
in general and I see where people have moved away from the "hot" florescents. That may be something I do down the road. Right now I am dealing with what I have and letting myself discover the unit. It was a pretty big leap of faith on my part to grab this unit, having essentailly no experience with the eggs. I was inside a Casita
once for 20 minutes. That was what I originally saw in a Vermont campground that got me thinking. Then, a fellow nearby bought a new Scamp
last year and we imposed ourselves on him going by one Sunday morning. We live out in the country and people seem a wee bit more disposed to someone walking over for a talk, so we took advantage of that.
But other than that, it has all been looking at pictures and visiting this amazing website. We have been out four times now, three times with electric service and once in the boonies. I expect that ratio to reverse itself as we swapped our tents for a trailer to extend our camping season in the woods. Two of our electric trips were to the ocean side to "developed" campgounds. Little summer left here in New England. My first year on this property a killer frost took out the garden in August.
So, with the anticipation of cooler weather soon, we will be doing exclusively boondock woods camping. I will probably turn that light
around for the heck of it even as I use the alternatives to the 110v.
