12 volt led. It will never electrocute you.

You should be able to find a hot wire somewhere.

I found a great 12Volt led light strip that I will be wiring in to the existing hallway light in our Adventurer. The skylight is a real great idea during the day but if you are showering in the evening the lack of light is a real PITA. The minor problem is that this strip is not waterproof so I will be slipping it into a 1/2" clear flexible tube and then mounting that around the top circumference of the whole shower stall. I will be running the power wire under a nice piece of trim that matches the existing woodwork colour in our unit. 3528 300 5M LED Strip SMD Flexible light 60led/m indoor non waterproof warm/white/red/green/blue/yellow string-in LED Strips from Lights & Lighting on Aliexpress.com is what I am going to install.

I just removed one screw from the skylight trim and bought a LED puck light. I did not trust the sticky tape to hold it up in the high humid evironment so I ran the screw through the puck's base plate and reattached it. When showering I push the puck for high and again for low then a third time for off. A set of batteries lasted us a season and no permenant issues.

The are valid reasons for installing LED lights, but this isn't one of them. Any type of 12 volt light is just as likely (or unlikely) to electrocute you as any other type of 12 volt light.
