The switch that turns the porch light on. Theres a channel underneath just b4 the end of the outer edge of the floor which runs pretty much the whole camper, then snaked it up to that switch setup i changed out. Prolly would have never done all this if i was actually using it lol

I might add the step light like you did possibly with some type of motion sensing switch. I have a white led light right above the door but it attracts so many bugs when you open the door they all end up inside the camper!

I took my spare off and caulked the seam on the front and back inbetween the welds. I would imagine this wheel would rust pretty quick sitting flat like it does.
Im gonna get some black rustolium hammered spray paint, white stands out too much up under there. I painted my last campers wheels white after sealing them, just use a deck of cards inbetween the tire and wheel and spray away!

Moved the stove hood out to where it should have been, extended the exaust with some aluminum flashing then extended the rear with some pine painted black. Just looks better! Should catch more too.
