Pantry lights. Our previous coach and our current 36T have pantrys beside the refrigerator. Unfortunately they are narrow and it's difficult to see what's on the back of the shelves.
To solve this problem, I went to the local auto parts store and ordered a plastic car door courtesy light switch (must have two wire connector and normally closed contacts), and in our case five flat license plate lights, one for each shelf ($20.00).
In our 36T there was an extra 12V fuse which I used to connect the positive wire that I ran through the pantry floor (if no extra fuse, connect the wire to one of the existing fuse wires the lights load is negligible). I connected the other end of this wire to one side of the switch. Run the ground wire through the pantry floor hole and attach it to the ground strip located on the floor behind the distribution panel (usually has a bunch of black wires connected to it.
Now install the lights to the top of each compartment toward the middle of the area (Be sure to leave room to reinstall the shelves if you have removed them for more working space.
Now connect a positive wire (preferably Red) to the other side of the switch and to one of the wires on each light.
Next connect the ground wire (preferably Black) to the other wire of each light. Attach all the wires to the side of the pantry, we used clear shipping package tape.
Reinstall the distribution panel, etc. and turn on the power. When you open the pantry the lights come on, when you close the door the lights go off.
