I had another thought on the carpet...I wouldn't attach it permanently. Maybe velco around the edges.

If it got wet or dirty I'd want to pull it out to wash or dry it.

Rockwood06, I really like the looks of those LED lights - I will have to check them out!

Radio, the plan for the carpet is to let it simply lie on the floor - no glue or fasteners - that way if it gets wet or dirty, I can simply take it out and shake it/dry it etc.

The come 2 to a pack and cost approx $16.99 a pair with batteries.
Where did you mount these?

Have you thought about a couple of small driving lights mounted up in the corners? They could run off you trailer battery.

Thanks for the kind words and to the forum! I see you have a 27 DFWP coming soon! I just got mine (used) right before Thanksgiving. We have been out in it a couple of times and are planning a week of camping and atv/dirt bike riding over spring break.

Tomorrow I am installing a digital thermostat to replace the OEM one - we'll see how that works!! Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks rsscoggins i appreciate that and i am sure i may have a few questions for you once we take delivery of our new rig on April 7th. We actually purchased in from Cheyenne Camping Sales in Iowa and they will be delivering it to us in a couple months. We can't wait but it is still pretty cold. Thanks again.

I am sorry for not replying, I over look your question. As of right now they are stuck to my tool box in the garage as a test to see how they work. As soon as the weather breaks and I can get out side to work on the camper and get it ready for the camping season I am going to install them on the interior wall of the storage area, so as soon as I open the storage door the light will came on. By the way the lights work nicely.
