Another "hidden" switch

Recommended Posts

In the basement storage compartment of the LE2 there is a switch and a light. Guess I had never bent that low while looking up. I had always used a flashlight. I was looking to see what it would take to add one and "poof" there it was. Am I the only one who missed it?

Yep!  I'm sure that you are the only person that has missed that light - just kidding.

 

During the day I find this light to be fairly useless and was thinking about slaving one off of it to be placed way back in the basement.  But, that is a project for another time.

Daylight worked pretty well, I used it to finally see the light.

 

Also will play with the idea of slave off the switch one or two puck type lights.

Or, instead of the puck type I'm thinking about the type used to light the bed of pickup trucks - available at Wally World for about $20.

As a "normal" habit I go over every thing I purchase and make adjustments to either things that were not completed correctly (at least to my standards) in the first place or to make my life easier in the long run.  Knowing Anita as I do, I'm sure that she was trying to make a "funny".  But, for those that have had problems these things really don't seem to be too funny.

 

Certainly better to make those adjustments in a place where one has the tools and supplies as opposed to being out in the middle of nowhere and suddenly having a real problem.

I agree that the existing light is inadequate, so I picked up a led battery powered light at Ikea.  It is a about 4” in diameter and is motion activated.  I have it laying on the floor in the first corner and it helps a great deal.  I may mount it on the wall in the future.

 

I believe I have seen a similar light in a 2 or 3 pack at Home Depot.

During our build in 2013 I asked that there be three hatches placed down low on the inside of the coach so that we could access the "spaces" under our raised bed platforms as well as the basement.  I see that the one under the nightstand at least has apparently become standard equipment.  I also had them install switches that control the basement light.  One was placed beside the inside hatch going into the basement and the other was placed just inside the the outside basement access door.  One of the first additions I did was to increase the number of lights in the basement so we could see all the distant corners from both inside and out.

Steve - in some ways it is a shame that (I assume) you are using LED lights.  If you had used incandescents you would have enough heat down in the basement to make the entire camper toasty.  Either that or you cold simply park it at the end of a runway for flood lighting of the airport.

 

Nice job (as usual) and I still really like that light/water pump switch combo that I've been meaning to get for myself.  Perhaps at the Rally - I've got beer!

What do you have mounted above the lower access hatches? They look like a pair of long tubes.

Thank you,

Those are our extendable flag poles. One is 26 feet long and will handle two flags. The other is 32 feet and is for spinners. I bought both in Quartzsite a couple of years ago.
