Let There Be Light…. a product review

Why it took me so long to figure this out and solve my problem is beyond me!

When we got our 5th wheel in 2008 I was thrilled with the kitchen pantry.  It really has more than enough space to fill our needs.  But, during our first outing an annoying issue became apparent… night, when it was dark outside, looking into the pantry was like gazing into a black hole…no matter how many lights were on inside the trailer.  Now, I know this is not an earth shattering problem — merely an annoyance and maybe that’s why I let 7 years go by before I came up with a solution.  And……here it is…….

Mom and Dad

My Mom and Dad were our camping buddies for MANY years.  From summer trips to the mountains or long hauls out of state they were always fun to travel with.
