nice mods but I'm not sure I understand the purpose of having the running Lights on. Is this when your already setup at the camp sight.

Finally Modded!

Yeah, they're for use once I'm setup at camp. They have three different functions:

1) Act as party lights when I'm camping with that kind of crowd.
2) Make the TT easier to spot when camping in dark locations and you need to do an end of night nature call.
3) the side marker light is just the right height to let me see what's on our outside table without having to pop on the more powerful outside light.

I do monitor the feel of the campground and I wouldn't use them unless I'm in a like minded campground or I'm isolated. So you won't have to worry about me running them in the local KOA where my awning is practically touching my neighbour's slide. But you might notice some lights through the brush at the local provincial park where there's 20' of growth between me and my neighbours.

P.s. I don't get the flasher either. I only saw that once and that was in a CG where I felt it would have been impolite to run them.

Kaadk could you do a "how to" on the light box switch that the seven pin plug connected into.
I always used a fused link plugged into the 2 connectors to make the lights come on but I like this better.

Not much to do a "How To" on. It's the same thing as your fused link. Just made easier with a harness.

1) Go pick up a 7-pin harness from your local walmart, autozone, canadian tire, etc...
2) Go get a waterproof box.
3) Put the 7 pin harness in the box.
4) Wire the fused link to the harness across the same pins you do today (3 & 4)

If desired:

5) Put a switch along the link so you can turn them on/off.

Next time I pull the TT out of storage I'll snap a pic of the inside of the box so you can see it's just a wire from harness to fuse to switch back to harness.

Haha I guess your right. I'm a visual learner.

Yeah pics would be good.

Look up "Trailer Beacon", this guy makes them ready to go, not sure what raw materials would cost to do yourself
