Thumbs up 376 BHOK Main Control Panel

Just thought I would share this with everyone. We have 2016 376 BHOK and I hate the set up to the lighting system in the rig. The toggle switch at the entry door only turned on the light under the sink, at night or in the early morning you could not see anything in the master panel to read all of the toggle switches. I made a little modification to the system so I do not have to turn on the main ceiling lights to see inside the panel. I hard wired a LED light in the back of the control panel to the light under the sink. Really like the way it came out. Next I am going to change the wiring so that all of the overhead lights do not come on all at once and make you feel like a piece of fried chicken sitting under a heat lamp in there.It is too dark for the DW to be in the kitchen preparing things with just the sink light. Adding lights under the counters around stove and each side of the sink. Also adding toggle switch in the master panel for LED lighting above cabinets and slides to act as ambient light when watching TV.

I just bought a 3 pack LED kit from the hardware store. I found one that ran on 12v DC. There is a wire in the back of the control panel that leads out to the light under the sink. I screwed the fixture to a stud that was exposed in the back of the electrical panel, once I cut the factory lug off the LED fixture, I just spliced it in and now the panel lights up at the entry toggle switch. I'll attach photo of the light kit
