TT Running lites in RV park

Trying to remember which holes to plug in a 10 amp fuse to keep TT running lites on, while hooked up to park power. Can anyone guide me in the right direction?

It's cool to see and sure helps to locate the TT when coming back after dark.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

I don't remember the numbers, but look at your plug. I place my fuse in the openings to the left and right of the top notch of the plug.

Thanks, GLSIMMS. But physical what size fuse do you use? My regular 10A fuse will only span to the hole next to each other, not leaving one in between as I understand your comment.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

Thanks much. That's the ticket!

Haven't tried the flasher yet but I'll bet that blows the minds of the neighbors when it's flashing. I'll have to pick one up at the auto parts store just for fun.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

I pranked a friend of ours last year by doing this when he and his family joined us on a trip. This was the first time he used his new TT. Before it got dark I put a jumper on his plug without him seeing me do it. Of course when it got dark his running lights were on. I had a few "adult beverages" and lots of silent giggles while "helping" him find the problem. When I finally showed him the "problem" his reaction was priceless. We still laugh about it today. Great campfire laughs!

There's lots of mixed opinions about having the running lights turned on. 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.

I carry a flasher, in my emergency kit. On the side of the road changing a tire, it works really nicely warning oncoming traffic.

A heavy duty flasher for slow flash.

A light duty for a rapid flash.
