Hood light

I have a 98/99 Pace Arrow. Fleetwoot wood installed a clearance light under the hood for nighttime visibility. It was joke. you could not see anything with this dim light. On this model with the F53 chassis, almost everything is under the hood. Batteries, oil dipstick, trans dipstick, power steering reservoir, etc.
I found a men's toy store at exit 201 on I75. It is called the chrome shop. They have all types of chrome lights and gadgets for 18 wheelers. I bought a backup light for a 18 wheeler. It is about 2in by 10 in. It has super bright LED's. I installed it under my hood and now my hood area looks like it is lit up by a searchlight.

I could demand that she hold the light, but I have been hit by a flashlight before and I can tell you it hurts.
Really, I made this post because men like gadgets and I never had seen a chrome shop before. This guy has all the lights ready for hookup and will plug them in and let you see how they look when lit. He also has gauges and chrome trim made for 18 wheelers but will look good on a motorhome.
