Shower Lighting

Hi All,

I am trying to find lighting ideas for our shower stall. We have a 2001 Safari and the shower stall is very dark. We have tried a battery operated light (Mr. Beams MB 980 Battery-Operated Indoor/Outdoor Motion-Sensing LED Ceiling Light, White), but it didn't really supply the light needed.

Does everyone take showers in the dark? The light from the ceiling lights just doesn't reach into the stall. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Ours has no light either. There's a light over the toilet that spills into the overhead of our shower but it's not much. We've used our shower only a couple of times because it's so small, it's better to use the camp shower.

I'm surprised the battery light you mention doesn't provided enough light. The only thing I could suggest is a large hand held, rechargeable light that's waterproof. We have the Black and Decker FL3WBD for use around the camp and trailer. That might work, it's pretty bright

No light in my shower but plenty from other fixtures. I have bright LEDs in most of my trailer and purposely put soft LED lighting over the commode. That fixture more than adequately lights the shower.

Thanks for the information.

The 2001 bathroom is a different configuration than the 2006 Safari bathroom. The lights are on the ceiling close to med cabinet and the shower wall blocks the light. The sliding shower door is closer to the entry way, across from the commode. Another words no real light. We also noticed that the shower in the 2001 in a bit larger than the newer models.

Thank you again for your reply...

I guess it must a matter of perception and expectations.

How much light do you want? Is there a way to 'tap' into the 12VDC by the mirror to run wires to an LED strip? If so, you could attach an LED strip which could 'shine' onto the shower door and provide external lighting..

If you put an LED in direct contact with the glass door, you will find it diffuses quite well.

You could put a strip on the outside of the door, power it with a 12volt battery (like a camera battery)... it uses very little power... so you could put the switch and battery in a small plastic 'hobby' box and Double side tape to the door. Switch on when needed.

Being outside the water spray, should give you a lot of showers on one battery!

I bought a pack of 3 small LED "puck" lights that have an adhesive spot on the back. This sticks to the shower ceiling. Power for it comes from 3 AAA batteries. It works very well.
The three lights were only 8.00 at Lowes.
