15 LED Solar PIR Light | Maplin (http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/15-led-solar-pir-light-n10jf)
I have 2 of these and they are excellent for the house/garden/shed.

I have been pondering how it could be used easily in my Motorhome.

I believe this will work.

1 Simply attach (screw and maybe sikaflex) the small fitting to the MH wall maybe under the canopy.

2 a) the solar panel can sit on the dashboard (or maybe in a rooflight) .
2 b) Whilst travelling the light stays in the vehicle connected to the solar panel so the batteries can charge. (see item 4 as well)

3 In the evening unplug the light and slot it into the fixing
It can remain unplugged as it will work off the charged batteries

4 If you are staying somewhere for 2 or more nights you could leave the light in position and simply route the charging cable via the passenger door window left just open.

The unit provides good light and is very handy to direct to say a BBQ or Table.
The light has a built in motion sensor so you could leave in place at night both for security and convenience

Dont get one yet they will be on offer at about 15.

Other units may suit you better but I like this one.

I did exactly this, but I screwed the small fitting to a flat piece of plastic and then glued that to the side of the motorhome for a stronger fix. It has been there for a couple of years now and doesn't look like coming loose anytime soon.

I bought three of these and fitted them to our Spanish villa - they all lasted about a month before giving up the ghost!
