I've thought of the 'tap light' idea too.

Still thinking.
Easy. Only need to cut a small hole to fish the wires through. Where the wall meets the ceiling you can cover any holes with a piece of inexpensive crown molding.

On my 28bh the left bathroom wall is an inner wall so no insulation to deal with. I carefully removed the 1" molding at the top and drilled holes behind it. I was then able to fish the wire into the wall. I removed the plastic sky light framing in the ceiling which gave me access to the wires. As long as I was at it, I put in a switch for the fan too. A duel light/fan switch cost me $14 on Ebay. I put the same molding back on and you can't tell it was removed.
Happy camping! (If the weather ever breaks!)

RV NightOwl Motion-Activated LED Lights 2 pack

(5 reviews)
Club Price: $49.99
Reg. Price: $55.55

These are available at Camping World. I know they are a bit expensive but they are motion activated so you would not have to worry about finding the switch in the dark. Because they are a two pack you could install one out side the bathroom and one inside. It would make is safer at night.

If you don't want to go the tap light route check out Mobi TykeLights. They are portable nightlights. They throw a decent amount of light - especially the green ones and stand up on a counter. My kids really like them.

We plugged a fancy little carved sea shell night light into the bathroom outlet. It goes on every night at sunset and off first thing in the morning. It throws enough light to perform most imperative bathroom functions without having to turn on lights and disturb other sleepers.

I looked briefly at ThinkGeek and it's not clear if their unit will work on 12VDC. I sent a query in. A family member has used that device on 115VAC.

A web search for "12V remote-controlled lights" got me about 12,000 hits, so there are some devices out there.

Would be great.

A trick I used for "fishing a wire" in our stick house was to get a length of Romex-type house wiring, solder a small flaslight bulb across one end and a flashlight battery across the other. I added a length of string to the lighted end.

With about 1/2" diameter holes at each end of the proposed run for the wiring, I then pushed the stiff house wire, with the light on, down the wall while DW looked for the light to show at the other hole.

When the light appeared, I was able to snag the string and pull it through and use the string to guide the wiring I wanted to install into position, then removed the piece of Romex.
