Finally got around to finishing the LED install.  It uses magnetic switches in the landing gear area so when you open the door they come on and off when you close. It works on either door. I also put some in the tongue box area that daisy chains off the other one.

Turned out well I think. Not sure how much I'd use them at night being my first camper, but it's always nice to have light in areas you normally don't.

You will be happy with it the first time you pull into your campsite at night and need your leveling blocks and utility hookup gear.

Yep!  I know our "main" camp trip we take yearly,we don't get down there until dark. Now I need to rig undercarriage lights so I can see landing gear and block locations

I did all the cargo areas in our 5th wheel last year, along with all the interior cabinets, with reed switches and led modules. I also swapped the interior fixtures with 6" superthin led panels and the undercabinet ones with led strips in aluminum profiles. It is well worth it the first time you go looking for something and don't need a flashlight!

Most of them had power running through them that I just tapped into, those that didn't I ran power from the batteries.
