Added yellow ( non insect attracting ) LED strip to outside kitchen with wireless dimmer control. Added white LED strips to each shelf area in pantry closet with on/off switches. Easily connected to empty fused position in convertor.

Why not micro switches on the doors so you don't have to remember to shut the switch off?

Considered that, but when I store the TT between trips, I leave all doors ( cabinets, closets etc) open to prevent mold. I have a dehumidifier in the TT and opening all doors allows them to stay fresh. Also allows peppermint to get in closets to keep mice out. Also discovered that the adhesive on the back of many of the LED strips is mediocre ( especially the Chinese made ones). It does not hold up well under heat. I cut a strip of 3M auto trim tape and attached it to the sticky side of the LED strip. NO issues with coming lose under temp.

Could just pull the 12V fuse or put them on a master switch.

Just a note about the Andersen WDH. The 8" drop model is much heavier than the 4" drop model although the 8" is also much nicer for trucks since their receiver is higher. I had a 4" on my SUV and got Andersen to trade me for an 8" when I changed from SUV to Truck. I no longer use it since I went to a fifth wheel recently. As an FYI, when I packaged up the 8", the ball, the chains and everything in the smallest suitable box that I could, it weighed 62#.

Another FYI has to do with the silentness of the hitch, after about a year I noticed that my trailer's tongue coupler seemed a little noisy at times. After much research and talking to Andersen, they advised it's ok to use a greaseless dry lithium on the ball and coupler. I bought a can of "SLIP" off of Amazon and sprayed the ball and the coupler. SLIP goes on wet and after a few hours it creates a permanent smooth surface. Noise gone.

If you want to see pictures of the used hitch, you can see them here: http://hbillsmith.dotphoto.com/

Just bought a 2011 sabre BHOK. it will need a real good washing and waxing. I already washed the roof but still have the sides to do. What is the best wax to use for the fiberglass sides? Is there anything to put on the roof to help the life of the roof?
