Trailer Lights at Campground

I have seen folks that are able to turn on all of their external parking lights on their trailers while disconnected from the TV. It looks kind of cool if you can just light the running lights, maybe excluding the stop/tail lights. Can anyone tell me how this is configured?

you can put a fuse in the 7way connector from the +12v to the running lights pins.

Thanks TURBS and HappyVibe, I assume you are talking about 11:00pm and 1:00am positions 3-4 on the switch??

I saw this done at the Sabre factory- I guess they verify the lights this way.
