I agree! Blue lights rule!
Okay, for a serious comment (question). Anyone know how difficult it would be to fish wires down an outside wall from the command center to the stair location? Is there insulation located inside the wall? My other option is to get power from under the frame somewhere, but I need to install a switch then. whereas I already have the switch location on the command center. Thanks!

Blue light reminded me too much of the amount of time in the Navy I spent in the Combat Information Center under blue lights. And by no advantage, I meant beside personal preference : )

The wall are hard foam. Might be tough pulling wire through the wall. I was gonna run wire from the battery to a weather pack switch and hide to out of the way under the stairs.

I think the wire and switch from the battery is the way to go

On a previous TT I drilled a hole through the floor inside a cabinet adjacent to the door. I pulled power from the 12v circuit there and installed a low voltage switch and an LED to indicate the stair lamp was on.

Finished my stair mod, except a little cleanup of the wiring. I ws able to find an exact replica switch so control it through the control panel. Happy with the result. Here it is.

Looks awesome ! Where did you find the OEM switch? And how hard was it to fish the wires up to the panel

Thanks!
I cheated and ran the wires through the bottom corner of the door frame and up the side of the door, then just a short run to the panel where the control panel is mounted.
Here's the link to the switches. They are identical to the ones already installed. At $2.49 each I got a few spares in case I want to add more lighting down the line.
