RE: Florescent lights in Engine Room

Amazing grace had been outfitted with 4 florescent fixtures (2 bulbs in each) by a PO. The fixtures were "open", no cover. As only one bulb in each fixture would work, I removed all 4 and replaced with LED fixtures from Lowes (about $50 ea.); tied into the wiring for the old fixtures. I opted to retain the 120V connection as I can run the LEDs thru the inverter. The ER is now bright enough to be a hospital ER.
