I love the magnetic switches. I currently have those little light switch style led lights in the pantry. But those would be great in there. I will just have to find a way to get 12v to the pantry and I will throw some led strips with the magnetic switches. That would definitely earn me some brownie points with mrs.

Not sure about your particular rig. But Our Control panel is built into the end of our Cabinets. 12 VDC is there and I have plans of making use of it.


good luck, im sure you will get much better advise here.

I replaced my interior lights with LED recessed and had a bunch of the old lights left over. I put them in the pass through storage and wired them so they could be turned on off from either side

I removed the lights in the cabin to install recessed LEDs and took the old lights for the underbelly pass through. Wired them so they can be turned on either side.

I have taken the existing light down and added a picture of the wiring. Pretty sure Im on the right track I would just like confirmation before I go cutting wires in an expensive toy. Thanks for the help!
I took the easy way out,, put up a battery operated light ,, nice light 2 AA batteries and just push on lenses turns it on and off. Put 3 more under kitchen cabinets,, love them

I put a couple of these wall switch LED battery lights in my pass through and they work really well.

That said in a previous trailer I added 12 volt lighting to the pantry with a button that would activate the lights when you opened the door. Alot more work though.

They have these guys on sale at Big Lots! Cost more to replace their cheap batteries than it does for the unit!
