Looking to add an extra light fixture to pass through

Just a quick question I have a 2016 Aerolite 29dbhs and the pass through only has 1 light fixture on the door side of the trailer. I am looking to add another fixture to the other side. My question is can I just cut the crimped wire nuts off and tie in a set of wires accordingly and run it over to the new light fixture. I have taken the existing light down and added a picture of the wiring. Pretty sure Iím on the right track I would just like confirmation before I go cutting wires in an expensive toy. Thanks for the help!

Go ahead and hook up the extra one as you're thinking. It's a lamp with a filament and doesn't care which wire goes where but you might as well wire black to black and white to white.

I changed out the light bulb for an LED equivalent and added about 20 feet of self adhesive led strip lighting.Gives me plenty of light anywhere in the compartment.

Since you are going to go in and do some mods for your compartment lighting you might as well do as I did - remove the OEM light/switch, order some adhesive backed LED lighting as well as two SPDT switches, then wire it in to allow you to turn the lights on or off from just inside either door.

I used these on my doors so that when they are opened, the lights come on. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
