Relocated step and entry light switches

On my Coachman Mirada, the step and entry light switches were located down low in the entry way and convenient while standing outside (Top photo)

However, the switches were very difficult to get to while inside the MH. I relocated them so they are high on the bench seat back. (bottom photo)

You can read about it here:

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Thanks.

That was the very first thing on our list after we bought it, move those switches so we don't need to stand on our head to turn the lights out at night.

I'm in the process of moving mine. They are under a cabinet facing down with no way to see them. It's all trial and error until I get the right one. Hard to believe it was built like that.

Well Folks,
All I can say is, I'm going to have to assume that they were put down low for evening entry since you can see them clearly in daytime going in and out. But, the good part is, it's apparently not too hard to move them for personal preferences. I didn't have any switches that control any step lights until recently. I added an under body LED light strip and, one short one under the front lip of the bottom step. I installed a switch to control both of those.

Sure makes things nice to have those on when, you don't have to have the door open to keep the step lights on.
Scott
