Ideas to rerun light switch

I have a 28bhks TT. Any ways the light switch was put in a horrible spot. It was placed in the cabinet above dinette you have to go in camper then take two steps open a door about 6 feet off ground then turn switch on. Any ideas how to relocate and make it look nice?

Any remote 12 volt switch? Or even wired is fine for me.

Electrical suppliers have a product in steel or plastic called wiremold that would be an option.

Wiremold 5 ft. Non-Metallic Raceways (10-Pack) - NMW1-10 at The Home Depot

No problem,

They also have shallow switch boxes, 90 degree fittings in all configurations. Just a note - I wouldn't used the plastic self adhesive by itself - I'd advise adding some pan head #6 or 8 by 3/4 screws as well to hold it on in a trailer.

I thought about that one but prefer a actually hard switch.
