On my 2011 eagle TT 32RLDS I pulled a speaker in the rear and found where Jayco ran the taillight wires from front to rear, I ran a wire to a switch and mounted it by other wall switches on cabinet end. It works Greg and I upgraded all my exterior lights to LED and it looks awesome at night!!!

I love this forum!
Wife and I have never seen this while camping. Too simple to think of. Had to try it out. Grabbed a fuse, plugged it in, and there was light. Grabbed the wife and she liked it (Spousal approval is a must with mods to HER trailer), then I told her about the flasher. She liked that idea to. Then I said "So next spring when we go camping with your folks, what do you think of stopping by their trailer, stick your head in and say "Why are your markers flashing?"" She loved that idea.

I don't leave "party lites" on all night. I will usually turn them off around 11 PM. I know many leave them on all night. Not a big deal. However....I cannot stand it when a close by neighbor has a 5er and leave those bright white moon lights on the sides where the bedroom is. When it happens it takes all the restraint I can muster to keep from turning them off with my pellet gun.

We have a gadget for our camper called RV Glow, I bought it on ebay for $20 it plugs into the 7 way plug and turns on all the outside lights on the camper its awsome to be able to find the camper in the night since our seasonal spot is pretty dark....

I ran a string of rope lights under the trailer. It gives out a lite glow of indirect lighting, just enough to see where you are walking around in the dark.

Chipper, did you run the entire trailer, one side, or just a section? I like the sound of your idea.

The worst offenders are the people that run the 6 or 7 inch round lights. Last year I had a person across the road had one installed on the back of the TT and ran it all night long.

But, small lights are great, they attract the bugs away from me to another spot.

I think some strips of LED's or neons would be cool tucked up under the frame of the trailer. Only problem with that is it would light up all the junk I store under there like firewood, my tote tank, shoes.....

That was my plan at one time. Problem is figuring out how to get them to stay in place. a friend did purchase a 15 foot led light strip that is waterproof from amazon. he applied it on the awning where most people hang their lights. It had self adhesive, but he then went over it with some clear plastic tape. it rolls up with the awning and hasn't caused any issues in the 2 years he has had them there. It came with a remote that allows him different color combos as well. i plan on getting a set in the spring. they cost about 30 bucks.

I bought a 40ft length of rope light for our ez up canopy, when not used for that I drape on the ground from the hitch under the trailer by the wheels to the back of the unit. This way the lights glow from the ground up.
