Off Grid Home Forums Technical Discussion Best 12v Cable for Indoor Lighting ? Re: Best 12v Cable for Indoor Lighting ?


I bought a caravan with two 240v lightbulb sockets mounted on the bottom of the cupboards wired with thick 240v cable. I wanted to replace the 240v bulbs with 12v directional mounted car sidelight bulbs. The idea to use them as reading lights. I simply cut all the 240v cables shorter (they’re still quite long), bypassed the original switch (my mounted 12volt lamps have their own independent switches on them), and used the original wiring directly as it was routed and connected it into the main load line that comes from my solar regulator and joins all the rest of my lights and appliances.

It works fine and has saved me money on cable and hassle of re-routing the cable.
