What puzzles me though is sometimes we come back to the trailer and we have a flat tire on it. I've checked all the valve stems and they seem good. Probably take the trailer to an RV shop and have them check it out.
Well played. Poorly spelled... but well played!

I don't have my lights flash, but I have been known to leave my running lights on the first night at a campground. When walking the dogs and unfamiliar with the park, it can be difficult to remember where your rig is. Having running lights on makes it easier to spot. I don't leave them on when I go to bed though.

Well, since everyone has brought this thread back to life, I just want to say thank you very much for the diagrams you posted. Gives me a much better understanding of the trailer to truck wiring hookup. I'm just a wannabe electrician so I try to be very careful around that stuff. But that hookup worked fantastic and was easy to accomplish. Thanks again. Going to drill the walls soon and add another satellite tv hookup. Just trying to figure out where the danged stud in the wall is!

BUMPing a favorite of mine, even though I was never able to duplicate it.

As it's once again approaching the happy season I'll bump this thread (again).

How about a flashing strobe light on the roof?

I like to hit the panic button on my truck alarm when I'm ready to return to my campsite. Sold the contractor genny and bought a Honda. The latest thing seems to be the lazer light show devices that are sold late at night on tv. I get even by walking the dog back and forth on those loops and watch the lights inside the rv come on after the 2 dogs bark their brains out for 3 or 4 minutes every time I walk ever so slowly by, lap after lap.

Unless you are at a group hug with like minded groupies, you might just forgo all the flashing lites and lazer light shows. Kind of the same as the generator hour restrictions although the restriction on light shows should be dusk to dawn.

I can't agree more with this. Many haven't grasped the concept of light pollution. Once the sun falls past the horizon, your music and lights should not extend beyond your site. This from the perspective of someone who usually just does state parks. Would be difficult in a packed in RV park.

That being said, I had to go apologize one morning to my neighbor because I accidentally left my LED awning light on all night. That thing is offensively bright.
