Skip - I guess some folks just like to be noticed... I have seen a couple all lit up at the camp grounds...

I guess if you had an emergency this might help the rescue squad find your parked trailer.

I saw one dude had wired in his jumper wires from the trailer cable junction box to a slide swicth mounted by the main door. He can turn them one from inside the trailer doing that...

We usually camp off the power grid and try to save everything we can from running down the batteries.

I use just a 10 amp fuse for the jumper. We have done it occasionally at one of the campgrounds we frequent a lot. It is a high traffic place with a lot of off road vehicles. Definitely not a place to go if your looking for peace and quiet. We have never left them on over night but if people do that doesn't bother us. It does make it a little easier to find your camper when you have been out visiting other campsites sharing toddies.

I run my running lights every night while camping. Use a fuse or a jumper. There's nothing risky about it.
