Rear flood lights?

Has anyone installed additional back up lights or flood lights on their rig?

Any info on what you did would be helpful to me. (Because of my working hours, its normal for me to arrive in our camping spots in the middle of the night.)

Thanks!

I had used the long magnetic led work light from harbor freight. It's cheap rechargeable and works. It's not a permanent mount I only would use it to back up at night in the dark.

I appreciate your question. Even though some topics have been covered, new ideas and solutions pop up all the time. I'm planning on trying to install some LEDs all-around under The coach for backing into spots. Like you I also seem to always arrive late at night.

Cheers

If your state has state safety inspections make sure that if you mount something permanent that it will pass inspection. Here it would have to be a DOT "approved" light on a motorhome. Fog lights here as a back up lights would work switched separately. But check your state.

I am in Florida. No inspections.
