Interior light/lights

New on site not to RVing downsized to a 2016 26'FKWS Flagstaff TT From a Class A Winnebago. I'm very impressed with this TT, with that said I sure don't like that the only entry lite (switched from the panel) is over the sink area and all other lights except the bathroom lights must be turned on and off individually. Has anyone wired other lights to come on with the entry switch or installed a light over the switch panel?

To do what you want to do you will need to snake some wires. That can be real frustrating and may require a sailor rich vocabulary. If all you want is some light until you can get to other switches, just add a few LED motion detector lights with on/off switches built in.

I actually solved the problem of the entry light by installing a nice LED light over the switch panel and adding two 3 inch slim round LED under the cabinets and removing the light FR had installed from the circuit and put it on the same circuit with the other living room lights.
Now when I hit the switch the two little pancake lights give off just enough warm white light and the light over the switch panel makes it east to see the switches problem solved.

Do you have an outlet near the entry door that you can just plug in a night light, maybe even one with a photocell to come on when it gets dark? Sure would save you a lot of hassle

This project has turned out great the only tough part was finding the wires behind the Microwave and then fishing new wires thru the false bottoms of the cabinets. I will take some pics next week or so and post.
