Thanks alot......

All one, just drilled holes at the top (under the tread) and threaded them in and out and up the back to the next step. Started at the top left (kept the connection end out) and threaded the end across the top, down to the 2nd step on the right, across the second step, down the back to the top of the bottom step on the left and across. Then made the electrical connections thru the Aisle step light with the appropriate led remote controller, started at the top step and attached the lights, pull excess and the did the same on the 2nd step and then the third. When I got the 3rd step lights installed, I cut the excess off. I stuck the lights about 1" from the riser so they couldn't be seen. Pictures are not all that great. Still have to get more double sided tape and stick the carpet to the risers as it is just pushed against the risers in the pictures and not attached other than around the central vac outlet.

Flew to our hometown on Tuesday. But on Monday, prepping the camper for storage- I drained the water heater and checked the anode. To my surprise with fulltime use since June, there was still a ton of life left on it. I put it back and taped over the on/off switches to remind me that it is empty.

No, we flew back to our hometown for 2 weeks to visit with family and friends before flying back to continue on.
