Recently installed an interior hatch release for car camping. Just wanted to show pics of the wiring for reference, as I couldn't find anything in the several posts on this mod. Wired as shown - into the red solenoid switch lead on the left of the pic, and heavier orange wire for power on the right, both connected to a $6 momentary spst switch from Amazon. I used standard splice connectors - not optimal but if they fail all I lose is my switch. Just be sure and cover the back of the switch, seems like a short waiting to happen.

I also drilled out the handle support member as shown so I could recess the switch behind the handle. Maybe a little overkill, but its an option if you want to keep it out of the way.
