Adding a Light Switch for an Interior Light?

We have a 2014 5.0TA. Hull #9. The trailer gets out and about 33 nights a year. We very much enjoy it.

I'd like to add a switch by the inside of the door for the ceiling light. Donna had a light switch installed there during her construction.

I'm trying to figure out if the light is wired on it's own- I doubt it because the fuse panel only had 2 fuses marked "lights".
I don't want to snake a wire under the white inside body skin. I'd rather intercept the electrical leading to it, and add a switch from there.
Has anyone else done this after taking delivery? If so, then could you please share how you did it?

You also might try an email to ETI. When I was looking into some wiring mods, I asked ETI, and got a response from ETI about where to explore, and where some of the cavity space could be accessed and fished through.
