Coot - Good mod, and Turbs, since it (they) are LED lights, bugs don't like'em. I think the "on dusk, off dawn" is perfect. I bought some motion sensor battery powered LED lights from Lowes and they have a magnet to attach them where ever you wish. Magnet is pretty strong as it holds to the step at towing speeds (don't ask how I know) - even at night when cars go past, the sensor was working - at least that is what the Hiway Patrolman said.

She really misses the auto on entry light as well. Any ideas/replies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Steve
Should read ceiling light. Sorry. Steve

After seeing a Sanibel Unit, we installed the interior step led lighting along with led lighting on he outside steps, both are on the same switch on the interior step just like the sanibel..we leave the lights on all night, one a night lite on the interior and one for the outside night light...perfect..tried finding a photo to send you..still searching my disc..

Step lights

I bought a nice amber light (probbly "side marker light" at wally worlds and mounted down under the steps with a on/off switch. Since its LED I can forget it being on and not run the battery down.......... wifey always thinks it will. ( we dont boondock )

I added the second.
I replaced the original with a 13 led marker then decided to add another of the same.

Looks nice however I'd steer clear of white entry lights, they will attract mosquito's as you will find out this summer.

The Yellow or Amber lights are perfect at keeping your entry threshold mosquito free...
