Where's my bedroom reading lights?

Bought a new 24T and can't believe there's no lights above the head of the bed!!
The lights are shown in the literature but not included.
Jayco recommends I purchase battery operated led lightrs and "stick them overhead".
I hope he was joking!!
I've had nearly a dozen RVs and all had RV battery powered reading lights.

Any suggestions?

IN THE DARK!

I just installed two lights over our dinette. Same issue it is so dark that you cannot read or play a game at the table. I ran wires there earlier this summer for a 12 volt fan, so I just tied into the same power feed. It took about two hours to run the wires from the other end of the TT and another hour to install the lights and power point for the fan.

Maybe it's time to query Jayco and ask if the lights that came standard on the 2010 were eliminated or made optional on the 2012s or 13s. If not, then maybe they just didn't get installed on maclean's unit, and should be retrofitted as a warranty item. If they WERE optional, then I would ask Jayco if wiring is already in the wall for them.

Both the dealer and Jayco suggested the "stick on"!

I tried an AC Delco cheapo stick on. It fell off. We have the head of our bed at the opposite end to what Jayco put the headboard. There isn't a reading light there either. Back to the planning board.

It appears the wood paneling has some kind of silicone coating on it. I tried securing a Command hook on a wood paneling, and it kept falling off. Finally I wiped the attachment spot with Goof-Off, since then they have not fallen off the wall.
