Thank you for your help, I appreciate it. Looks like the dimmer has got to go. An ordinary switch should free up some room for all the connections (I hope).

I was planning on adding a wall mount pot rack as well. I figure I may have to remove some drywall and add some proper blocking where needed. A lot more work but it will be secure.

Recessed shower light, lens or dome trim?

I hope this isn't a silly question. I've installed a 5" halo recessed light above the bathtub.
