Well I do like to have a light on at the front of the 5er that is different but I don't leave it on all night. When I go to bed all outside lights go off. I just recently made a 4' lighthouse that the light slowly fades on and off. If this offends people then I'm sorry. I don't think it's any different then awning lights. I'm confused how people are leaving all the running lights on. This must be a feature on new units I guess.

That is pretty neat.

If I was in a location like Big Bend it would annoy me... Otherwise I do not really care, different strokes for different folks. To me leaving your lights on is no more annoying than the other things around the campgrounds.

We use ours to help the kids find the camper. There off at bed time unless they are not there yet. Sorry if you don't like it ...........

Among 800 other campers something needs to stand out its like daytime anyway...........

I only use the lighthouse at the coast when camping. Everyone seems to like it. However if camping in a place like Big Bend then no. All lights would be left off.

Does the light house confuse the other boaters along the coast? J/K

I can see using it to "light the way" for the little one to get home, but she is too small for that... Yet.... I have curtains to block the light as night.

Between the street lights along the roads, cars driving and the golf carts cruising around there is worse light pollution around the campgrounds.

I have never seen Class A's with the running lights on. I have seen several travel trailers & 5th wheels.

Maybe they are truck drivers and love chicken lights...?

If you hold your trailer plug with the plug in side facing you, and the locating lug at the top, jump between the top two .....11 and 1 o'clock ......battery power and running lights.And depends where your camp'n and safety issues.......so get over it..

I don't think that is an option but it is a mod i'm sure. I for one would not want my running lights on after I'm set up in a campsite, so rude.

How exactly is this a safety issue? It's rude to leave the stupid lights on. It spoils the lake view and it looks absolutely ridiculous. I guess I'm not getting over it.
