"Standard" Lights on a 21

Does anyone with a new 21 footer know what exterior lights are "standard" on a 21 and how they are switched (i.e., how many light switches)?

My question relates to what I would consider a good workable arrangement for exterior lights:
- 4 lights. Porch, front, rear, and drivers side
- Front, rear and drivers side lights on one switch. You would only turn these on when setting up / tearing down / troubleshooting and when you just want to annoy the neighbors.
- Porch light on separate switch (preferably dimmable)

Same question on interior lights.... what is "standard." Only thoughts I have about interior lights is that would be good to be able to turn on/off the lights in bath and bed area separate from rest of cabin, so three switches minimum.


Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

All your interior lights will have individual switches as part of the fixture. On my 17, I had a switch on the entrance door jamb so that I could turn on an interior light when entering, but I neglected to ask for that on the 19.

My added exterior lights are on one switch by the door. Porch light is a separate switch, interior light (one just inside the entrance door) is on a third door switch.

I really like the one over the front mounted storage box.

Also, the added exterior lights have a switch on the light should you want to NOT turn that one on (as in the drivers side if you're in a tight campground.)
