I have used the flasher unit, when stopped on the side of the freeway changing a tire. It really makes the trailer noticeable.

Shouldn't run down the battery if you're plugged into shore power. I installed a 7 pin vehicle plug onthe tongue of the trailer with a permanently wired in fuse and toggle switch. I unplug from the TV and insert the trailer plug into the running lights dongle. The plug stays clean and up off the ground and in the evening flip the switch for running lights.

I wish the guy with the giant round white lights on the road side of his 5er would turn those darn things off at 10pm,,,but that horse has already been beaten to death on this forum.

If you have an emergency at the camp ground that required the rescue squad to come in it would really help them locate your trailer... Especially if they was flashing haha...

Each one of those incandescent automotive type lamps probably draws one amp. Sure would not want to do this when camping off the power grid...

My friend had his wired to a 12VDC ON/OFF switch just on the inside trailer door.
