RV Under Cabinet Lighting
Stick-on Anywhere Portable Little Light Wireless LED Under Cabinet Lights 10-LED Motion Sensor Activated Night Light Build in Rechargeable Battery Magnetic Tap Lights for Closet, Cabinet (Silver2)
ERV manufacturers, like many businesses, have to manage production costs with profits. The average RV comes with what I’d call minimal lighting packages. Which are just okay, but they can be better. Typically you’ll find a manual switched light for counter tops, seating area and the dinette.
The problem isn’t that they don’t work. It’s that when you want to fine the switch for the under cabinet lights in the dark, you have to turn on the ceiling lights to fine the switch.
Using one of these motion sensor lights makes it so much nicer walking into a dark kitchen without getting blinded. After 10 seconds of no motion, the light turns off. No hunting for switch in the dark.
Other Possible Applications
- Exterior Storage Bays – Activate light as soon as they opened.
- Under the sink Cabinets
- around the bathroom mirror – for makeup lighting
- Pantry shelving
One of our biggest problems, was the 3 foot deep cabinets in the kitchen and the 3 foot deep storage shelve in the bathroom. Even in daylight with ceiling lights on, you had to use a head lamp to find stuff.
We purchased 6 of these lights for our cabinets. These worked perfectly for us. Here’s why we love them:
- Mounting is very flexible- we used Command Strips
- Very Bright – excellent for under counter or in-cabinet lights
- 850-mAh rechargeable battery – last 3-4 months for us
- Motion sensors work great
- Simple to install – three way switch, on, off and motion sensor
We used Command Strips because we knew we would changing RVs and wanted to take them with us. It works great and this cabinet is 2 feet deep. We have never used 2 in the cabinet(they are bright) , but you could.
