A VERY weird and strange electrical issue!

Just returned from a long tour of the western states, and most of it involved dry camping in federal and state parks. And very enjoyable it was too!
One evening, also dry camping, we had just the accent lights on (the hidden light strips above the upper cabinets) and my wife decided to take a (military) shower. She opened the faucet, and I could hear the pump running and her usual oohs and aahs until the temperature was right. Suddenly after about 15 seconds, simultaneously the pump stopped and the main cabin lights came on. The pump restarted after about 5 seconds. And I was left completely taken aback wondering how the cabin lights could have come on when no one had come near the switch which was still off. I got up and switched the cabin light switch to on and then off, and the lights went off again.
A few minutes later this occurred a second time, and subsequently never occurred again.
I've found no feasible explanation for this, but some superstitious folks remarked we might have parked over an ancient burial spot!
Anyone ever experienced anything like this?

Yes.

You may have a friendly spirit who paid you a visit, and wanted to make his/her presence known.

Water or moisture(from steam) getting somewhere behind the walls of the shower liner and shorting something.

You don't necessarily invite them...they do their own thing.

To heck with Roswell. You have electricity flowing where it doesn't belong. Who has the schematics for that model year?

And while we're at it, who was it that requested the T1N electrical drawings when we were out of the country last month and I never got those documents sent over to that person because we had the world's crappiest wireless at that time? Whoever would like a PDF copy of those, PM me your email address(es) or email me (interstate.blog - at - gmail).
