    Of all the expensive 'toys' and gadgets I've bought over the years this one is far and away the most useful and ironically the cheapest.

    Placed ours at just above head height on the inside right wall near the hab door. It comes on the second we open the door coming in late. It's also a God send when you just walk in or out of the kitchen for stuff during the night without having to mess around with turning lights on and off.

    Surprisingly bright as well.

    On the advice of Richard ( The Scotties ) we invested in something similar with our first van.. That light has followed us as we have changed vans over the years.. It is not over the door but in the toilet though.

    I was going to invest in one for the entry door too but the Autotrail has an internal door light that comes on for a couple of minutes when the doors are unlocked so not needed in our present MH..

    A very worthwhile buy though (y)

    Aldi paid me 90p to buy theirs............:whistle:

    I've found those little battery lanterns very useful, leaving one by the bed for any night time trips.

    Mountain Warehouse sell a small torch which has quite a strong beam when pressed once, press twice and it flashes, and it can stand on its end to be used as a tiny lantern - full cost is about £7 but it came half price when you bought something else as well.

    A great bit of kit if your getting on a bit and need to get up in the night ,however if you sleep soundly it's just another gadget that you don't need.
    My dog would be setting it off all the time and the wife would be thinking someone's coming to get her! ......If only. :whistle2:

    I think the dog would be always setting it off, one in the loo is OK but I always close the door before putting the light on so as not to disturb SWMBO. Even a little light can be quite dazzling if you're on a quiet, unlit place.

    Also find them useful, one in MH loo and one fitted over habitation door. Also got them at home, again one in loo and one by the kettle in the kitchen. Saves turning on the main lights. Batteries last for ages. Lidl and Aldi come up with them regularly.
