Step lights on 26dbh

Not sure why but the 26dbh only comes with the led strip under the main entrance and the awning...has anyone found the same strip to put under the bathroom door steps?

You can buy a roll of the lights and cut to fit. Usually Amazon or evilbay has them. Later RJD

I bought mine right before they started putting hose lights on them, so I added mine. I just bought a 8" weatherproof blue LED strip from Walmart.

Thank you! Has anyone replaced the blue with clear/white? Was this difficult?

That's a great idea! Would you mind sharing a photo of the finished product or describing the exact location you placed the strip? Also, were did you tap into power?

I can't get any pictures for you until spring because the camper is in storage this year (normally its sitting alongside the garage). I mounted the above mentioned light to one of the cross members of the stops with self tapping screws.

For Power:

I also added LED's over each of my stabilizers for nighttime setup, but wanted the ability to not have all of them on...so I added a new bank of 3 switches. 1 for the step light, 1 for the front lights and 1 for the rear lights. I ran new wire for the positive feeds up the inside wall of the camper where everything else runs (right behind the sink). I tapped into the power for one of the other switches in the cabinet behind the switches...I didn't run a ground up (because of space in the existing hole in the floor for wires) and instead each of those feeds has its own ground to the frame.

Thanks for the step by step! Greatly appreciated and thanks for the tip about lighting the stabilizers. You're a genius!
