Bedroom Light Mod
For reasons unknown to me, Jayco installed a light over the bed in my 33RLDS that you can't reach without getting on the bed. They neglected to install a wall switch similar to the bathroom. After a 3 AM inspiration, I installed a pull chain light switch in the original light fixture. The pull chain switch is available at most hardware stores in the ceiling fan section. Dropping the light fixture was easy although I'll never understand why Jayco uses 8 screws to hold the fixture up. There is room inside the light fixture for the switch after drilling a 3/8 inch hole for the pull chain to come through. The original switch itself has two wires, and requires cutting only ONE of the two wires going to the light fixture. The pull chain switch is installed in line with the cut wires. I just used crimp type butt splices to make the connections. Remember only cut one of the black or white wires going to the switch. The only problem I incurred was getting enough wire through the hole in the ceiling to work with. It seems that when Jayco installed the roof, they pinched the wires, but with some effort I was able to pull enough through to work with. The pull chain cord now hangs down in the middle of the bed and is reachable from all sides.
