I also helped a neighbour towing a overweight Highlander with the brake controller at 11. He locked up the trailer brakes on his mini light digging ruts with every move backing into his site. Suggested he back off the controller a bit. His Toyota brakes smoke if he doesn't run the trailer brake controller at maximum.

Didn't like the fact I had to have a flashlight after dark to see inside my rear outside storage. So I ran a 2 conductor line from the panel with it's own fuse (5A-18ga @ 25') underneath, through the existing conduit to the back storage. I fashioned an aluminum bracket and mounted it to the door frame, installed a rocker switch (SPST) and ran the wire to three spaced out points along the top. I cut some LED tape (white) into 3 strips of 6 LED's each. I soldered the wire to the LED strips and mounted them on the ceiling of the storage unit with clear silicone caulk.

Now with the flip of a switch, I get a soft glow, just enough to see everything in the dark but not to bright as to overly light up the area.
