I want to add lights to the rear as well for backing in.

The front led bars are illegal here unless covered.

I found the best light you need is the led headlamp. It's cheap and won't bother your neighbors. And wherever you look the light follows.

I have put a pair of 5" lights on the back bumper to help me when I'm backing into a site in the dark. Never had other campers complain- guess they realize that I'm just trying to get settled. I connected the lights using a remote controlled switch. The remote is on my TT keys so I just press a button before I back up. I have a second set to go on the back bumper of the TV but I will wire that with a dash switch now that it's cooler out. Click image for larger version

Isn't there somewhere a kick butt magnetic mount battery powered LED superlight that can be used for all of that depending on where you stick it?

It ain't kick butt with only 4 AA batteries but you get the idea. Even with that, it will get you hitched/unhitched.

Those LED head lamps are Great for working on things when there is little or no light !!!
