    Hi all, I am moving some downlights in the Grandparents bathroom to inside a new shower cubicle. Old mr16 downlights from zone 2 have got to go. In the situation we are having i cant find any 12v ip65 downlights anywhere. toolstation had a clearance and not to be restocked. 3 options i thought of were.
    1. Look very hard for ip65 12v mr16 with led driver.
    2. Install rcbo type A with gu10 ip65.
    3. No idea if you can get away with this but a 2 module box in the loft with rcd just for that bathrooms lights.
    Any advice would be much appreciated. I ask about rcbo too because the consumer unit is about 15 years old and plenty of room, but house wiring is old and not sure if its got any shared neutrals. Thanks
