Yes, I got out into Sunny when I gothome from my greyhound rescue meet n greet today. I just used clear silicone, but I am not too thrilled with it as it got sorta nasty dirty looking, got any better caulk recomendation?
My back up lights are a great addidtion, as is the additional light by the door. Now, when I have the door open in the evening, I can still see when entering/exiting the trailer.
The additional light was very easy, drill a 1/2 inch hole on the outside wall where you want to mount the light for the wires to run thru. On the inside, remove the switchplate that houses the porch and ceiling light switches. I added the new porch light to the switch of the original light. Just snake a wire from the new light fixture thru the hole, down to the hole behind the switch plate and connect it to the existing porch light. Now, If you don't want both lights to come on at the same time, you'd have to add another switch, and well one of the guys would have to tell you how to get power to the 3rd switch, as I'm not sure you could just run a jumper wire over to the new switch.
The backup lights, I had to buy new tailights with backup lights in them, remove original lights, snake a wire thru the wall to the bottom of the trailer. (I used a metal antenna from a CB and it was easier to fish it up from the bottom rather than from the top down thru the wall, You will have to poke it around as there are obstructions in the wall, mostly it appeared to be trying to get thru the insulation that caused the issue) I taped the new back up light wire (tape that sucker onto the antenna really really good) once taped up real good, gently but firmly pull the antenna rod up thru the existing hole or the wires, now you have the wires for the light fixture, so connect them to te fixture. You now need to run the backup light wire to the front of your trailer, I did this under the street side of the trailer, cable tying the wire as I went forward. When I went into the "BLACK BOX" on the front header , there was a yellow unused wire which turned out to be the backup light wire from the factory. Once the wires were connected, I plugged the truck and trailer up and YIPPEE, I now had backup lights on Sunny. Now, WHY? did I want back up lights on Sunny, well, for one thing hopefully it warns idiots, oops people behind me that the trailer will be backing up, and that is not neccessarily limited to a campground, and it does help when backing into your campsite in the dark. Clear as mud ya say? Well, I'll try to explain better if you need more info. I just love tinkering around on Sunny projects.
