possible light switch mod

I love our new to us TT with one little exception......NO switches on the wall. NONE of the interior lights are on a wall switch so you go into a dark TT and if locking up at night you leave a dark TT. Sort of difficult to stumble around and find the ceiling lights to turn one on. Anyone had this issue and if so how did you fix it if you did???

You could use a wireless light switch, they are pricey but worth it when there are no other solutions.

We installed 2 in S&B home in areas where we not able to run wires.

Basically the light switch has a transmitter built into and you install a receiver in the ceiling light fixture.

I used a wireless light switch mounted down near the floor by my entry door. I can reach it without even stepping on my first step.

I bought a small under counter florescent 110 volt lamp and plugged that into the wireless adapter for the 110 volt receptacle.

I had wired a Logisys 12v 15 amp relay kit from Amazon (reasonable price and I buy things from Amazon already). Wired it in series with the lights and leave the lights on. Approach hung the trailer, tada, lights with the push of a button, middle of the night also.

^Excellent idea!^
I was thinking about putting a couple "tap lights"? or puck lights in strategic spots.

I bought 2 led motion sensor lights from Superbrightleds who have a add on this page. they cost $6 each and seem to work great, the one over the dinette comes on when you open the door stays on 80 seconds put one in the bathroom for middle of the night.
