Unhooked with lights on

Often times when we camp, we'll see campers with all their exterior lights on [including tail lights] sitting at the site not hooked up to the TV. How is this accomplished? Am I missing something really simple?::

There are two pins on your trailer plug that you put a jumper on to make all the lights come.
I have not done it in a while, but on my plug, I jumper the two plugs that are on either side of the guide nipple.
Some people find it very distracting and others like it.

Here's a video that will.... A) show you how to create a safe (fused) jumper link - and B)...how to use the jumper to test other 7-Pin connection or electrical issues that could arise....

I use a seven amp spade type fuse and stick it in the two openings, one on either side of the guide nipple. This gives you the jumper that you need, and it also protects your lights.

I am not sure about where you camp but where we go the more lights the more bugs! I will give you it looks good though.

I simply put in a 15 amp blade fuse into the top two (labeled 3 & 4 on the diagram) slots creating a jumper. The fuse is almost the perfect size to fit in and make connections. A fair warning though, when you go to remove the fuse to turn off the lights it is very, very warm.

Heck just plug a round flasher into those two sockets and the running lights will flash all night...

Yeah, I probably won't do it either, I was just curious as to how it was done.

I have done this when camping with others to light up the area between our sites. It isn't something that I do often though.
