It was add LED lights to the Finn's Inn Express with expert assistance from Mark Bragdon on the outside a LED strip was added under the drip rail, I had seen this done on a few 'Birds and liked the idea, they are wired into the outside porch light and they really light up the outside.



This photo is not an exaggeration of how bright they are.

Shoot, we can't even hit a urinal half the time!!
To help me during those trips to the bathroom at night, I had a section of the outside LED strip left over, so I mounted it under the wire cover above the commode and wired it into the water pump switch, this SHOULD help me see where I aim.

John,i'm a little worried about the fire extinguisher next to the toilet

I think i would put the lights all the way around the coach,both sides!

Today I put 2 planks on the couch for when it is spread out as a bed. I also ran new Coax cord for the TV ports. I made a light box to replace the missing one but still need to tweak it a little to fit. Thinking of taking the bus out tomorrow to get gas and LP so I can work on the heating systems but not too sure yet as I have a electrical problem that gets way worse in water.

Headed to the AZ Hotbirds Lake Havasu Pyrotechnics Extravaganza today. Should be a blast! John, never thought of keeping a fire extinguisher handy near the toilet but might be a good idea

I thought that was where your guys mind was coming from, but in my case I would add refried beans to the mix, but since I don't smoke there would have to be some sort of ignition source added to the mix
