    Light for main panel

    It was driving me nuts that I had to find a flashlight before I could find a switch on the main panel.
    (An oversight that GD should remedy)
    I found a battery powered LED cabinet light (Home Depot . . . two for $5)
    I put the light on the door and the magnet (small white cube in the picture) beside the panel.
    Backwards from how this would normally be configured. The magnet turns the light off when the door is closed. Now, I can see the switches !
    (BTW, these lights are going to end up in lots of the dark cupboards on our RV)

    Thanks for the reminder. I had seen this idea on here before but forgot to go find a light. I pretty much have the switches memorized now but would be nice to be able to see them! Also like that your water heater switches light up like our old TT, our 2014 337rls does not have that.

    Hi Cate and Rob, I was in our local Home Depot (Kingston, Ont) today looking for these lights and they don't know them, could give more details on them.
    Thanks Craig

    Hi Craig,

    I have been having the same problem finding more of these. We are currently traveling through the US. Found the first ones in Nashville and have checked several Home Depots since . . . with no luck.

    Great idea. (Although I, too, have memorized the light switches and can find them in the dark.)

    If you want to order them, the Home Depot item is here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Amerelle-...1185/202260322

    A little less expensive on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Amerelle-71185.../dp/B008CCQ64C

    (Hope this links will work for you.)

    You're welcome.

    We're working on selling the house now, but still won't go full-time.
    Plan to snowbird in Florida though. Had enough of the MD winters!

    Happy trails,
    K (& W)
