My old camper had LED running lights on it, and I was known to turn them on while camping. I figure the light output was much less harsh than my porch light and it provided ample illumination to walk back to our camper at night without turning on the porch lights and creating more light pollution. Furthermore, the red and orange light is easier on the eyes in the dark than the bright yellow/white of my porch light.

That is a good idea. I had never thought of that use for flashing the lights.

As a retired police officer who had a campground within my jurisdiction, I have to say this is a great idea. The officers I supervised hated responding to calls at the location because they could never find the correct site especially at night.

I will be adding a flasher to my list of items I carry with me. I would add that it should be kept somewhere readily accessible in an emergency and not just thrown in a tote somewhere. I think I will velcro mine just inside my pass through storage.

You mean when you call 911, you don't just tell them it's the white trailer? LOL

It would also be an easy project to tie a two-conductor cable into the #3 and #4 RV plug cable ends inside the junction box, running the other end into the trailer somewhere easily accessible. Tie that end into the flasher with a switch on one side, and you could start the trailer lights flashing with a flip of the switch. With a three way switch, you could have it turn the lights on solid one direction, flashing the other.

A lot of people dislike it, saying they don't want the campground looking like a truck stop, but yet they're quite alright with tacky lights and tiki torches everywhere. I would say just as long as one doesn't go overboard with it and leave them on all night, it should be okay. We've turned them on occasionally when we're at a campground we're not overly familiar with and away during the day attending an event or something, and don't get back until after dark. It's pretty useful knowing which trailer is ours.
No flashing other than for an emergency signal. Lighting at a campsite is sort of an extension of freedom of expression and brings with it the responsibility not to go over the top and turn your site into a circus marquee. We try to find secluded sites at a campground that offer some screening from activities at a neighbor site. We do not do anything that might bring attention to our site, both sight and sound.
