Are outside decorative lights 120v or 12v?

Debating if we need a optional 12 volt plug outside. The only reason i think we might need one is for lights under the awning but i'm not sure if they are 12 volt. What other anyone use is there for the 12 volt outlet. Thanks, Pete

We just use the porch light if needed, which is 12V, but you can get other 12V lights if you want to pimp out your trailer (glamping). With 12V you could use them anywhere, 120V would need a connection to the grid (or an inverter, or gen set)

The only use I could think of for an external 12v outlet is for a 12v fan to keep the skeeters at bay. Fantastic Vent has one that I may try.

This is a great forum! By the time I can order mine, I'll have stolen everybody's ideas.
