Remote control 5.0 loft light

I like to have a light on in the bed loft of my 5.0 before I crawl up to go to bed. I have been crawling up there in the early evening & turning on a Captains light so I have light for going to bed later.

I've done some research for an add-on module for remote control and even thought about putting in a remote switch. Then I realized that I already have a remote controlled rechargable light for use in my Clam or shade shelter. In fact, I have two of these:
LED Camping Lantern from Amazon.

The pic shows the two colors, yellow (looks green in pic) & white, and the multiple intensities. Note: it blinks red when charging and goes solid red when fully charged.

When we bought our 17B, it had a 9í LED tape strip around the bottom of the cabinets above the dinette. It used a remote and infrared. The remote had Velcro strip, kept it on the side of the cabinet. Worked well.

I figured they bought the LED strip for the awning, thatís where it eventually end up.
