Added a step light

I added a step light today to my Crusader. I had a 12 volt light in the basement cargo compartment. Opened the wall up and got behind that light and tapped into the power supply. Cut a small hole in the wall material for a switch. There was already a tiny gap in the floor to pass a wire thru. Drilled a small hole to mount a clearance light inside the step area. Hooked the hot wire to the light.. And there you have it one step light. Cost about $10.00Click image for larger version

Step Lights

Did mine kind of similar on the Crusader 270 RET..I now have an interior step light and one on the exterior. Basically attacked it the same way you did, but cut a larger hole in the plywood behind the thin bulkhead on the right side of the cargo compartment..Both operate off one switch mounted on the step riser inside the coach: The Exterior Lite is a Three Bulb LED..Have also planned on putting some LED Amber lights above the Kitchen Wall Cabinets in our coach..just purchased a 300 Bulb LED Lite Strip this morning off EBAY..
