Slide out switches

I have a Crusader Lite 30bh and have an "issue" with the placement of the slide out switches. The one in the bh is right about the light switch and it seems like whenever someone goes in there they hit the slide switch to turn on the lights. I've also had people bump the main switch in the living room if they are standing in that area.
So is there an easy way to remedy this? My daughter says to put a cover over the switches (like what you see over fire alarms and thermostats). My other option would be to pull the fuse, but I would hate to have to pull the fuse every time as we travel at least once a month to a different place.

Perhaps you could wire a second switch in a less accessible location and turn it off when camping.

Along JD's idea. If you have an unused switch in the system panel you might be able wire it to operate a relay in series with the slideout power wire(s) from the power panel.
