Has anyone thought of those cheap glow sticks put on the ground where you want the drivers side of the trailer at? Could be like an airport runway..... If you can see them then you are good on that side. Not to bright that they blind you, but enough that you can see them. And you can get them pretty cheap and they are very light weight. I use them for a lot of things from on the black dogs collar at night to lighting paths at night while boondocking.

12 Volt LED Mini Spotlight with Magnetic Base

Sorry, I should have included the correct link:

27 LED Portable Worklight/Flashlight

Cheap... really cheap.. and bright!

I also do this if there is no other light and actually keep the light coiled under my seat so it will be warm (lays flat) and easy to find. I pull up to the site - hop out for a quick check of the site, plug in the light and "string it" on my way back to the truck. Easy and fast. More than once I've discovered power pedestals that are dead this way and moved on to another site - much better that getting the trailer parked and THEN finding out the power is dead.

Knowing me, I would run over the lights.

Probably one of the posts I back into...

(Good suggestion....)
