    2015 newport light and ceiling upgrades

    Changed out dinning table ceiling light with tea stained glass fixture and added three more bulb sockets for a total of six. Maintained the 12v dc but used led bulbs as to not go over maximum watt rating.
    Added light kit to ceiling fan and finished out ceiling crown molding not done by factory to match.

    Great Mod! Where did you get the light fixture from? I really dislike the ceiling fixture we have over the table - it's the ceiling type and the lighting is dull and we would live to replace it so any info you can give me on it would be appreciated.

    The new ceiling light is from home depot. The "guts" is a marriage of the original and new. I added more bulb sockets and very bright high end warm white led bulbs . This makes the lighting useful when eating and maintains the original 12v system while staying way under maximum watt ratings.

    A favor - when you get a chance if you could take a picture of how you made the mods to the inside of the fixture, I like your idea since I haven't found any decent looking fixtures online. Another question - where did you get the
    sockets to use in the fixture.

    Before I elaborate more, I'd like to see pics of your ceiling light . exterior and interior. Is it 12v dc?

    I know its kind of late now but is there adequate clearance when both slides come in for ceiling fan light? I know in my current unit it just about hits the fan as it is

    In my Newport the ceiling fan is centered. I have a center sink island that both slides track up to leaving a centered ceiling opening of about 27". Plenty of room for a 13" dia. tear drop globe hanging down. I hope this answer your question.

    Re: 2015 newport light and ceiling upgrades

    It's over our table inside the slide so the fan would not be a problem, nothing would hit it when the slides are brought in. I posted
    a picture of it's shape but not the fixture that I have this one is 110.

    I want a fixture that directs the light down.

    Well then, If you have no clearance restrictions and your light is a/c powered, you literally have hundreds of options from swag , tiffany, chandelier, spots, globes, etc. Check out dinning room lighting at home depot.

    woodworm - what a great modification but I'm still confused on how you modified a 110 light system to a 12v system. this is the light fixture that in our 2015 Landmark Key Largo. (pic of an inventory unit at RVs For Less). I can't take a picture of our coach because of storage.
