There are four total one at each A pillar and two on the ceiling by the pass through. They have red bulbs so you don't loose you night vision if you need to locate something in the cab at night while driving. They were in the truck when I bought it. I have used them a few time now and they are handy.

makes sense.

ours was built/equipped with similar driver/passenger lighting (over each seat) - one white & one red (separate push to activate lens').

We also have (factory equipped) RED floor lighting which can be activated by a dash switch....Ive converted the floor lighting to RED LED (theyre your typical trailer/marker lights).

I added RED led lighting (along w/ while) under the toe kick in the rear of the coach....so if someone needs to be in "the house" they can turn on the RED lights (at night) and keep from blinding the driver w/ glare reflected off the windshield.

I may switch to LEDs the truck is a 2006 however it has some retro 80's feel about it. Kinda like some of it however might be cool to step it up a bit.

We have owned a couple of FL120's and a FL70 Sport Chassis. Also, had a K600 and K900.

This is our first International. Very happy so far. Only issue was the engine harness was in pretty bad shape so the thing was throwing warning lights left and right $600 for the harness and another $500 for all new sensors and she is right as rain.

So I got a few hours in on the rear storage compartments. We have been way to busy at the shop to steal any time on machines during the week so everything has to be done on the weekend for awhile. With the log weekend coming up I hope to get the slides and draws fabricated for the batteries and generator. Then I can work on the wiring and plumbing at the shop at the house.

This one won't be a pass through. I will have 12' long boxes down both side with partial a pass through in front. Going to work on her over the weekend, hope its not too hot.
