Scare Light illuminated Switch

They call the "Driver side rear light" the SCARE light. We have inadvertently left the light on all night far too many times after taking our dog out for a late potty break. Then finding in on later in the morning while walking around the MH. Thank goodness the neighbors have never complained.
So I went online and purchased an LED switch and installed it. After ordering it, I found another one that has interchangeable colored lens that may be more suitable, we'll see.
Add-on: below is the link to the better switch on Amazon

I thought there would be a lot of RVers out there with this same panel and scare light with the same issue, guess not.

Changed to a brighter light switch

The DW and I didn't think the small LED on the switch was bright enough so we ordered the other switch with removable colored lens. Choose white as we can't miss it when turned on.
No more leaving the scare light on all night!

That would work for us too. My DW likes it dark to sleep but can’t wear the eye covers. She puts “things” on all the led’s to block the light. The white light on the switch would bother her so it would get switched off pronto.

I under stand what your saying about the drivers side scare light. Though we don't use ours much, the one time we did we left it on all night. Ours is called Opposite Door Side Flood.

Sooooooooo nice to see a story about someone considerate of those around them. Kind of a rarity these days. And.....took the time and money to do a quality job so that it doesn’t happen in the future. Great story and great pics.

Sagecoachdriver, I’d enjoy having you as my camping neighbor anytime.
