I completed the modifications to my light
sensing, motion detecting light that is now mounted in the hole where a cd player had been installed. I noticed that the battery
powered light I used was wired with 4 AA batteries and running at 6 volts. Rather than install it with batteries I decided to fashion a voltage divider circuit (based on Kirchoff's voltage law) so that it can run off of the trailer battery
. I used two 1K Ohm resistors to split the voltage so that it is in the 6 volt range. If anyone is interested in a drawing contact me and I will attempt a diagram. I took the circuit board out of the case, soldered the resistors in and wired it up. The cover is a piece of the plastic lens from a broken light fixture that I had not bothered to throw out. I put some plastic trim around the hole and glued a wood backing inside the closet. I also wired up another illuminated switch to turn it off when I am inside and don't need the light going on every time there is movement. This is obviously not a critical modification for getting the Boler
on the road but I was waiting for the paint
to dry on my cabinet doors.
