Storage Bin Lights

Camping this week and a notice a neighbor had lights that came on automaticly when he open the Bin doors...... pretty neat!

Anyone know where I can get a similar 12v light for my coach?

I would use a battery operated light that wouldn't run down the coach batteries just in case it got left on. They are also easier to install.

It is an easy mod to your existing basement lights using one of these switches for each bay door.

All you need is a drill bit, a wire cutter, some spade lugs and a wire crimp tool. all tools available for about $25 if you don't already have them.

Thanks, I like this idea....... The lights he had were motion detected, if a door was left open and no motion, the light would go out.

We have the lights, but have never used them.
