Spliced the LED strip into the fold-down switch, with the mini dimmer inline, ran an illuminated 12v switch to a location under the power outlet next to the electrical center, now able to turn led strip on/off and also control brightness with the mini dimmer. Total expense less than $15 for LEDs, dimmer, switch and some wire and connectors I had laying around.
I ran wire from the fold-down switch location through the grommet at top of rail and down into the HW Heater compartment. Was pretty straightforward, took about 45 min and most of that was snaking the three wires through the wall panel as I didn't have a wire snake.
