I would like to install a dimmer for the 120v overhead light located over the table in the kitchen of my 2005 36'. A regular household dimmer is normally installed in an electrical box in the wall. The coach does not have wall electrical boxes but uses speed connect switches. Is there a special switch required or can I use the househood switch without the box?

You can use a standard residential dimmer switch without an electrical box.

(Currently in Laguna Beach FL for a "few weeks" ;P)
