OK OK where did you get the parts and where did you find the power.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks

Nice - will be working on something similar for our pantry. Would those cookies happen to be chocolate chip?

The switch came from Home Depot, lights are from Amazon (neon mart bright white) I got the power from the bedroom wall behind the light switch. There is an open 12 volt & ground that Newmar doesn't use. I drilled a 3/16 hole from the pantry side and slid the wires through. The switch is mounted at the top of the face frame using a small piece of lexan and HDMP that I had in my scrap box.
