Outdoor Kitchen/Bumper Grill Lighting

Anyone have solutions for adding lighting to the outdoor kitchen and grill area? We have grilled in the dark with a flashlight several times now.

We have a 2016 Sunset Trail 290QB.

Thanks!

I hang lights from the door but also bought an inexpensive clip on light to point at the grill. Works ok.

Mainstays Clip Lamp - Walmart.com

Yes, have them in the rv closets that have no lighting. Last a long time, of course they aren't on a lot. But, as you know, led lights don't draw much.

You could pull 12 volt wire to that area and install LED strip lights.

I installed two of these inside the outside kitchen and they work great. Also put a bunch in the pantry.

I had tried similar ones, but the little bounce in the rv when we walked turned them on.

I ran a string of outdoor LEDs around the opening of my kitchen. These 2 photos, the first without a flash and the second with a flash show the installation. In the 2nd photo (flash) you can see the switch I installed in the wall that separates the sink from the refrigerator.

Doesn't happen with mine-they turn on with motion in the darkness like magic!

Thanks! This will work great for us. How did you attach the lights? Staples? Tape?

I've got a post in the upgrades and modifications section. I think they are on page 3 now. Thread is ST30RK mods, or cont: st30 rk mods...

Maybe someone can share the link. I love how they turned out and how much light they put off.

That's the one, thanks Lloyd. I tapped into the CO2 sensor power. Lights and wiring kit from amazon for $30. They are magnetized to the door, so they pop right off when I close the door. The back one shines perfectly on the BBQ, the front one shines on the stove. I mounted the switch in the upper left corner above the sink faucet. Bright enough to see if your steak is medium, but not too bright to bother the neighbors.

Since I posted that, I did add another door latch on the left side of the door to support the weights of the lights.

They are self-stick. I just pulled off the paper and stuck them inside the opening.
