That is a cool idea - wish i thought of it first.

How did you run the wiring? I admit I have looked under there to see how accessible the wire are.

Brilliant idea, I am going to have to explore this. How did you run the wires from the switch to the lights?

sorry for the delay in responding; was out of the country with sketchy internet.

I spliced into the toggle switch that turns the light on just above the dump valves, then ran the wire in a loom to each corner of the TT. I also added another LED light on the curb side attached to the belly pan. So if I need light when parking, my wife can then just turn on the light switch and the both sides and the rear will be flooded with light.

I will take a picture of the lights turned on when I go out to the storage garage.

below is a picture of the light.

Finally replacing the aluminum slatted blinds in our 2013 with the newer style. Forgot to take a "before" pic, but you get the idea. Price for all was 39% less than from A/S dealers, easy to install too. Place is Zarcor.com.

Well we are very happy with the recovering of our jackknife couch in our 1985 Sovereign. My wife who is a "potter", makes pots and teaches the craft worked a barter with one of her students. Potter time----reupholster, the couch came out wonderful! We are both very excited to show off!

Looks great. But it also looks low in front. I presume you have since adjusted your hitch. Or maybe it's just sloping pavement?

Did the adjustment at the dealership, but it was the parking lot in this photo.
