Rear Hatch Lights (Red/White on dimmer)

After a couple of trips out during the fall and winter, I realized I needed some lighting that gave us a good amount of light on the rear side of the rig. Adding red cob lights allowed us to keep our night vision so we could stargaze. Also adding a dimmer allowed us to adjust the amount of light needed.

Power was pulled from the cargo dome light. Ran the wire from the hatch through the same conduit that is used for the door locks. That was a PAIN. Tip: Grease the wires then pull it through.
