Mounted the rail for a slide topper by inserting 10+ screws into fiberglass above the slide. Scary! But I used Butyl tape behind the rail, and then added dicor as caulk at the top of the rail so no moisture would get behind to rust out the rail from the back even though the Butyl should seal the wall.

Yeah... I'm paranoid when it comes to water penetration and damage.

Take a look @ Mr. BEAMS battery powered lights. You could install the base with screws or maybe glue the base. When you are ready to get back on the road, you would be able to remove light from the base, it has a set screw.

Yes, just know what your doing. I have installed additional satellite jack and have installed a wifi antenna on the roof. Pulling wire through the attic is not a big problem as you can remove vent shrouds and lights to gain access.

If you don't want to drill holes, you can use HD hook and loop ( similar to what easy pass uses). That will also allow you to put the light inside when traveling. Quick easy solution

Solar light

Put mine up with Velcro tape. Added to my check list and take it down when we hit the road. Works great and the Velcro really holds. I put 2 pieces on to make it hold tight.

We replaced our porch light with a Star Light 1,000 motion light. Works great and was only $100 Canadian. There is a breather hole on the bottom to allow air to get in so as not to cause any mould forming. You can reset it for just a porch light or reset it for a motion light. Only issue we have had is had, if its set on motion setting and there are trees moving in a camp site it will activate of and on as a result of the motion.
Other than that an excellent bright led light

Me like, Me like...

I think that is what I should do. This way I could take it off when leaving. I will add the additional task to the "pre-departure check list"

this is what we did for night time light at the door, ......the back clip can rotate to fit any where on the rail,...... also left myself access to the switch on the back and you can see it was just a scrap piece of plywood, ... I actually bought the 2 pack because we have two doors on our 25KS and mounted both, but have found that one at the FRONT door is more than enough, ......we hated coming back to the trailer at night and trying to unlock the door w/out any light,..... this works great for us,...... no need to be on any list, we will always see it when closing the bracket against the door if we haven't removed it before then,...
