Yes. I made the statement early in this thread that I only light up my marker lights if I'm plugged into shore power. There's at least a dozen incandescent bulbs burning when you light them up, including the tail lights.
But I still maintain I prefer the soft glow of these lights to the glaring, bright white light from the LED awning light strip. That light strip is great if you are eating or playing cards under the awning, but not so much if you want just a little light while sitting by the campfire.
And I definitely would not use the flasher - although it might be a cute trick for a couple hours once a year if I was at one of those private campgrounds that puts on a Halloween event, with door-to-door trick or treating.
