LED PORCH LIGHT RETROFIT

By on September 16, 2015

Finally got the porch light converted to 12v after having to modify it to be isolated to my internal 12v system. It’s a perfect match to the 120v one that was original, but i found the bulb it came with drew a crazy 2amps, that’s almost as much as my fridge when it kicks on! Replaced with a 2 dollar LED tail light bulb now lighting the same for .1amps…IMG_20150916_202819767 IMG_20150916_202903094 IMG_20150916_203023801 IMG_20150916_203027879 IMG_20150916_203042698

In Dec of 2014 I decided to sell my house of 15years & pick up a vintage Airstream. I found a guy in Covington that had one he was completing- house went under contract before Xmas & things seemed to be working out. I made this decision because I’d been in the same place in the Old 4th Ward for 15yrs. WAY too much condo and apartment construction in the area making it unbearable to get anywhere. I had way too much stuff that I didn’t need & needed to cut it way back to the essentials. AND it didn’t make sense for me to be paying almost $2300 on mortgage & utilities for me & my 3 cats, Bongo, Molly & Casper Little did I know that 4 contracts would fall through until I finally sold on May 28th, 2015. Not the new year start i expected… Follow along. It's an adventure for sure///
