OHHH, good idea Powerboatr, thanks for the idea. I might just have to run to Rotten Shack and see what they have for a photocell.

I completed step two today of the project which was to connect the step light under the steps to the courtesy light circuit so that it actually will stay on after the door is closed until the timer shuts off the cirucuit. I always hated that the lite under the steps turned off as soon as you close the door. How useless.

Now it's time to get busy on that back lighting idea for the switch panel...

your going to laugh...
i dont know if my step light stays on or not...when the engine is running and you step out????I am always in the coach
you know you never know if the brake lights come on with the engine brake syndrome
now i did add a BUNCH of leds under the passenger side that run from the bottom step to about mid coach so we get a nice red GLOW under the coach when the porch light is on. I need to snap a few pics

That's another great idea I'll have to look into. They make the rope lights in 12V LED now that would work great for that and would be really easy to wire in.
