Garage LED lights

Was too dark in the garage with the bed raised up.
In stalled LED strip lights.

I felt the same way--too dark with the bed up, it blocked all the light from the overhead lights. I applied 4 stick-on adhesive lights under the bed frame. LED, batteries will last a long time, no wiring required.

We had the same problem in our 395 and installed some LEDs also but ran them the other way left to right. It makes a lot of difference. Click image for larger version

Not trying to hijack the thread but I tapped into a hot wire up by the motor for the bed lift. Then just wired in a small rocker switch mounted on the wall next to the entry door.

I ordered our from Amazon. Don't remember for sure but they were around $15 for 16 ft. I had bought several rooms for different projects in the camper. Put some behind the slide out molding and some in the pantry. Still want to do some on a motion sensor with the light under the steps to the front of the camper.
