OK, here's an update the lights came in and I have them installed.
I had to put support boards in to hold the lights so they wouldn't wobble.

I must say they look a lot better than I thought they would it really gives the camper a nice lowlight atmosphere.

I really didn't think they would look this nice but the wife wanted it so I put them in.

I am really glad I did not put a couple of the round ceiling lights in. Here are the picsClick image for larger version

I included in the original picture of the original lights over the sofa, the other picture where you can see a roll of paper towels are the lights I installed over the dinette which I have the dinette moved out of the way when I took the picture.
But you get the idea.

Mainframe,,,,,,, Awesome.

The lights look great.In regards to your first picture. I do not supposed you have tried or had a reason to attempt to fish a wire down from the end of the inside of the overhead cabinet down through the dead/flue space behind the fridge?

I intend on installing LED strips on ours on the bottom of that cabinet and the others, and I need to drop some wiring down for my EMS remote panel and seelevel tank monitors. I want to mount those items at the main control panel.

I am told I will see our 23WS the week of 4-25 so fingers crossed.

I did not go any farther than the speaker, but I didn't put the "bottom inside piece" inside the cabinets back down yet, as I am still not quite finished securing the braces.

I will look today and see what I can see, It sounds like you are going to ad lights inside yours [LED strips], but I gotta tell ya John if you go to Ind. and get yours grab a couple of those reading lights, the 23ws looks REALLY cozy with both sides lit and nothing else, + the range hood light, I am stunned!

Good luck on yours, I am sure it will be awesome, I am still happy with my build quality and would like to shake the hand of the person who did all the caulking in and around my rig, WOW wish I could caulk like that!

my dad used to use one of those old furnace chains to drop wires down a wall, he swore by them, I don't have one but I remember they used to drop down walls really nice.

Looks great and I agree those round some lights are not as nice, although I don't read in my RV those reading style lights are nice I have them in my Roo

Sent you a PM on the Indiana thing.

I intend on installing these under all my cabinets along with one of the LED surface mount fixtures they were using on the earlier 23WS. The long ones with rounded ends and switches. I had these LED strips in our previous Keystone along with LED strip behind the slide flange as a back-light. I think IKEA is discontinuing these but they can still be found in the stores. Just cut off the switch and throw away the transformer. They work great on 12volt RV power and are dimmable.
LEDBERG LED 3-piece light strip set - IKEA

I need to drop some wires through there as I want to install a PI EMS remote and a Seelevel2 tank monitor panel in the main control panel.

I hope the caulk guru who did yours does our 23WS.2. Whoever did 23WS.1 did not need his hand shaken, he needed it slapped

You can turn the light 180 and tilt it so it will really be a reading light and not hitting the wall ...
My trailer came with these lights and in the beginning I thought that their focus were locked but after further inspection I found out they are really reading lights and they can be refocused to in fact hit the book you are reading.
