Outdoor lighting

Looking for suggestions or inspiration to fix the lack of outdoor lighting. The blue light just isn't cutting it and I was wondering what you all do to resolve this issue. I have also considered removing the furrion mount to add something there, has anyone attempted? Thanks for any help.

Is this a Furrion strip under the awning??? If so.....look at Amazon...I found a 5/16"x18' wide light strip/waterproof for under 10 bucks.....took about 20 minutes to change it.

Yes I have the blue light under the awning but it does not give sufficient light to be able to do anything a night,, more or less just there to look cool. Also, the spots that I have been to are all back in with fire pits behind the camper so I have absolutely no lighting back there at all. I observed a few tha had spot lights behind their campers but wasn’t sure if anyone tried doing one themselves. Thanks for the reply.

When planning these things just keep in mind the balance between being able to see and ruining your neighbors experience with bright lights. Not saying that you would do that but I've seen people with total disregard for the fact that people may want to stargaze, sleep, enjoy a fire without headlights and other lighting shining in their face. I tend to go out of my way to try to overcompensate by trying to never use headlights within the sites unless absolutely necessary, and limiting the amount of exterior lighting that will effect other people's site. I recently was at a site where a guy had LEDS strobing colored light, completely tasteless and obnoxious. Other times people are using their high beams to cook or clicking their alarms off and on to get the lights to shine (and chirping). I'm not a confrontational person so I'll usually grin and bare it unless it's really out of line and persistent, but I basically vowed never to be "that guy" and hope people will learn by example.

I agree with you 100% on that. We use a kerosene lamp that provides a nice warm glow for our exterior needs. It should be against the law to leave a porch light on all night as well.

I have blue under mine handy right around the trailer. Also a white one I use under the canopy so I can where am I walking but not all the time. When it's time for bed, I just close my blinds so other peoples light does not brother me.

I couldn't agree more with the idea of keeping the light pollution to a minimum. Not saying that anyone on here is being rude. To be clear.

We just use an LED lantern. The quad one from Coleman is great. Love the removable panels. Put this on the shelf and it lights up everything:



Most trailers have the accessory rail and come with a shelf like this (which will hold a lantern quite well):

Be considerate of your neighbors. Use a flash light to navigate around your site and enjoy the night sky.
