Led dash lights weren't meant to be dimmed so the light switch issue is mute.
Great news!
I accomplished getting the keyfob controlled door lock installed. It took patience that I didn't know I had to get the right parts and test them. Now I just have to reinstall the covering and the gutter edging over the door.

Hello,
I'm installing a one piece shower too, how did you duplicate the curve of the ceiling?

If you still have the front cap interior panel, use the driver's side as your curve template. Then check and trim as needed.

I ran a level across at the highest point of the outside wall, then every 2 inches, I measured up to the ceiling. I transferred this to a cardboard piece, cut and tested it. I made any adjustments until I was happy and transferred that to the shower wall. Read some of my rant about trying to get the 3x4 ft shower into an upright position.

Raise the roof and vault the ceiling.

Now you have head room, and no more curve on the ceiling.

It's a win win.

I know some people have done the roof raise and some love it. Its not for everyone. Thankfully too because I do not want mine raised. But to each his own and do your own thing. Its a personal choice. Both have their own issues to overcome.

A roof raise is actually the easiest way to get a 1 piece shower in there. Once the roof is off, all you need do is drop the stall in...zippo, done with shower.

Do take the time and read of the fun times that people have had around getting a shower stall not only in place but in the doors too. Not really funny, but just the thought of it has to bring a chuckle or two.

Worth thinking about...

Building a shower outside the bus can be a bit like building a boat in your basement. At some point...it's gotta fit through that door.
