Already have the cable swivels brazed with double washers on both ends of a 48" length of 3/16" cable, now just have to empty the drawer and drill the hole in the center of the drawer and bolting the cable to the drawer, then reloading the drawer. Big job just emptying the drawer, let alone putting all the junk back in it.
That will have to wait until tomorrow. Have to take TOWTA out for dinner and a trip to Wally World for who knows what she'll buy.

How correct you are.. Every time I "clean house" I end up with more stuff I did not know I even had in the trailer.. Let alone used in the years it was in there..

I installed a small LED blue light and tied into my is inside step light. works well on so I can see the panel either when I open the door or have to turn a light on so the Dog can take care of business in the middle of the night. Got tired of using a flashlight to see the switches on the panel at 1:00 am in the morning. If I can load it you will see, cost 14.00 bucks from Amazon.

That's a good idea. Do you have a link to the light on Amazon?

At least Glen 's panel is in a cubby hole......Rockwood's panel is on wall with no top, just flat panel. pur a light up there anyway just to see if it'd work, so now will add a shim behind light for better switch viewing.

What is on the panel that you need to see at night just to let the dog out? I don't have any light switches on my panel and don't want to mess with anything on the panel especially at night.

I took her in for the annual NY state MV inspection. Passed everything fine. Then on the way home, I did some unplanned remodeling. What a horrible noise. Tree 1 - Awning 0. On a positive note Jim's RV in Nichols NY good to deal with. 17c east in Waverly NY watch for low branches.

Probably turning off the carbon monoxide alarm!

Don't ask how I might have guessed.

I try not to leave outside lights on at night to disturb my neighbor. But I need to turn on the porch light so I can see at night when my dog needs to go out at times. Now I can see the right switch , also when we come back at night I'm tired of switching all the lights on inside to get my overhead light on Geez... Hard to see the panel in the dark. link for Espendydad....LED Convenience Courtesy LED Light - Six (6) BLUE internal LEDs - Waterproof, Compact 12vdc Fixture Truck, Auto, RV, Aircraft lighting , o only people I know that see at night in pitch black are the devil and walking dead, and OC, Sorry really don't know how to post a link, but that's it on Amazon OC all my outside light switches are on the panel and my entry main overhead. Typo cost was 14.00 dollars american.

Most of the rocker switches on your panel are replaceable with lighted rocker switches. I replaced all of mine with units I bought from Amazon. About $2 each. They are all common sizes.

I just lost 10 minutes of my life reading about coffee makers, lights, excess weight, roller drawers, excess junk and not a thing mentioned about awning poles or china bombs.

Today the DW packed up for our weekend trip, long hours at work. Tomorrow night I get to load the truck, we head out Friday AM for Rondeau and lake Erie.

Don't worry about it Ms Amy, just ask him to recite an ACLS algorithm, then see how smart he is.

Well That is a very true statement, but mine only light up if they are turned on, The only lighted rocker switches I have that have lights in them are the waterpump, DSI and tank heaters the rest are not lit or they are two small to put a rocker switch in the panel. Hence the Blue Led to Match the Rockers when on. All my light switches for outside lights and the one overhead at the entry door are located at my panel. If you look closely at the bottom you will see about six.... The two not in the panel are my bedroom slide switch and the extra motion light I installed a star light #1000. The only two that are not in my panel or near the area are the SPST that control the power for the Genisis, and CO/MOX detector. For the parasite draw. By the way Blackhat6mike, where you with the the Army 1st Calv.?

Installed the Progressive EMS-HW30C into my 19RR. Very easy to do. Took all of 30 minutes. Works great!

Used 4 pieces of rubber fuel line hose about 1" ling to raise it up off the shelf and to isolate it from vibrating the trailer. Although I read of folks having a vibration issue, this unit doesn't even hum. No noise what so ever.

It fit right behind the power center in my trailer.

Nice!
