I see what you are dealing with. I'm tall and still have a hard time seeing which is which. I keep a flashlight by the panel. I have had my TT for almost a year and still haven't memorized the switches. Hope you find a solution.

What about something like this? It's battery operated and turns on by touching it.

I have kinda the same problem with my coach. Fortunately, there is a coach battery cutoff switch by the entry. I always leave some interior lights on, and switch this off as I leave. Not only solves the entry problem, but also makes sure I don't have anything running down the batteries in storage.

How about "super glueing" some sort of bead or node to the rocker switch, like braille, you can find it just by touch.

I have the same problem and use a flashlight. Even with lights on in The Roo I cannot read the switch labels.

Wish my panel was mounted higher. I was doing some work in the new camper when my wife let our 3 yr old grandson in for the first time to see what grampa was doing. Within 10 seconds he'd flipped every switch and was working on putting in the slides.

X2, good idea.

1 bead, 2 beads or 3 if you have multiple lights and multiple switches.

HeyJude, we had a similar issue with our panel as it was all black and black switches; and my wife also doesn't have to duck when going through doorways. I happen to own a P-touch machine, so I printed some white background labels with bigger print and stuck them to the panel where it would be easier to see. Yes, you will learn by second nature very quickly, but a white stick on label with big printing that you can remove later, will help for now.

I did a label to warn about closing doors before slide operation, for the microwave stove vent flap, and the unmarked porch light. P-touch is great.
