Added backup/side lights to the 365

I've always found it hard to back these units up at night because you are unable to see what is around the rear of the camper. Well, one other member on the FR forums did a similar mod, so I kind of copied it. The lights are clear LED lights from and I used an inline mini fuse holder with a 5 amp fuse and a standard rocker on/off switch. I can now get out of the truck and walk to the front of the camper on the driver's side and turn them on when I need to. I mounted the lights near the base of the rear wall and then on the sides near the rear of the trailer. I ran a power wire from the battery and inline fuse, to the driver's side propane compartment and put the switch there, then to the lights, down the outside of the frame to the rear. The lights are $20 each from Etrailer. Here are a few pics.

Hi like the lights nice job. I also liked the use of the foam interlocking pads to lay on when under the tt.

Have a nice day Tim
