12 volt light fixtures
As sailors we used a different system (before LED's).
Most import* SS light fixtures have a bulb holder that uses a dual contact bulb.
We simply rewired the unit to hold a dual filament bulb with the addition of a pull chain switch, and grounded the housing.
The setup is the small filament is comtrolled by the EZ to see , or feel in the dark chain pull, 1/2A on 12V
The origional small switch would turn on the 2A "brake" filament ,good for finding a lost contact lense .
One of the little pins must be filed off the bulb , a minor hassle.
To continue saving we wired the cabin corner lamps with a switch to be able to convert the circuit from a parallel to a series circuit.
Nice dim lighting , great for dining , with about 1/2 the juice.
