I really can't see using them anywhere else. For those of you with more than the two, where did you put them, and for what intended task?
We are all quite prolific readers in our family and placed the four lighted two in front (for the bunk and for the dinette bed) and two in back (for the queen bed). Some of them are used for at least a few minutes every night for reading before bed time while camping.

For the dinette I find reading by the flush light just fine. I usually sit beside the bath so the light does not shine direct on sleeping beauty in the bed.

I do a lot of reading too, but seem to find little time when camping with so much else to do, so I look forward to doing it when I go to bed. For some strange reason, it is rare that I make more than a few moments myself before zonking.

A book at home can last but a few days, but camping it can last for weeks......

I replaced the one of the fixtures over the front & rear table with dual lamp units (LED) & found them useful for reading with my old eyes.
