I found an easy solution to lighting in small storage compartments on my 5th wheel. I have lights in my pass thru storage, but did not have lights in the small storage compartments on the back of the trailer. I install some of the battery powered tap lights that you see on tv. They take 4 AA batteries and I installed them with velcro fasteners on the top of the compartment. They give off enough light to see inside the storage compartment without having to have a flashlight. Just an idea that some of you might can use.

My Rv is old and the cabinets are quite dark. Last fall I found an led light that is powered by 3 AAA batteries and includes a motion detector. I bought one and have no "field tested it" to -40 below zero for storage.
They come with their own velcro tabs and cost $12.00 Canadian!
They are now appearing in more than one color of casing--mine are all white.

I have seen the led lights also, but someone had given us the tap lights a couple of years ago. I found them when we were cleaning out closets since we couldn't go outside due to the frigid weather and I thought I would try them. If they don't work, I will get some of the led lights.

Does any one have a web site for those LED lights. Sounds like they might work for a project I have.

Lots of web sites on LED's, here is one that may work. Look down near center and you will see RV lights.LED'S

The Superbright site doesn't have the led unit I was speaking of.
In Canada it is sold at Superstore.
The brand name is Globe and the model is a BH2805
I have not seen them online.
