Light over the black panel of switches

This was brought up earlier. Found the light for about $25 at CW on sale.

Had to pull the top cover to access the wiring. It was stapled down.

Had already cut the 2.5" hole with hole saw and installed the light in above picture.

The new one is LED bulb. Not paying CW prices to switch the other to LED.

The panel without light in the middle of day with lights off and shades pulled down.

Excellent job!! Wouldn't you think if they are going to put the switches inside a cabinet, they could use white??

Smart and good looking idea!
Guess this is another example of me wondering if the people who design RVs ever use them!
Happy camping!

I would look in a truck stop. They have a lot of lightning options for the inside of trucks that won't put a glare on the windshield.

I thought about adding the light that I did about a year ago. Just happened to be in the store and remembered. I knew the switch panel but now the family is here full time. I saw it more as a necessary thing. It lights the door and inside steps. The other factory lights don't seem to bother my son as they are not LED and shine straight down.

Try a marine supply store. I saw an LED fixture in boating I'm going to use in mine.

Great job! I was the one that originally asked about a light. The top panel, are you talking above the cabinet? We did not get anything for a light yet, I'll look for a light like that one.

There is panel stapled or brads. That way if you put stuff up there it's not banging on the lights and pulling wires. Was easy to do 15 minutes in time.

I got sick and tired of having to open a cabinet to turn on Ceiling lights. Black top left and 2 white lower left.











So I moved them to outside of cabinet above thermostats.
