Love these ....but please respect your neighbors &the love of the stars and turn them off at night if you can see the next door camper reflecting those lights (some of us are wicked sensitive to light when sleeping ...I even have to block the stupid little light over the fridge...)

Camping a long weekend just about every month since May 2013 .... Florida is a great state for this bad habit

I hope you continue to be very lucky and enjoy camping. The thought of attaching an electrical device to the gas line gives me shivers. I realize that the probability of an accident may be low but; the combination of propane and electric spark could be disastrous.

Harbor Freight Tools sells a sort of rope light with a solar panel. Mount it
anywhere. I attach the solar panel beside a Maxx Air cover on the roof & run the rope light along the top edge of my trailer. It's not bright but you can see obstacles in the dark & don't need a power source.
Was on sale recently for $9.99.

Ok here is what I did. Keep I mind this was a last minute job as we were going out with the need form ore lighting. My plan will be to convert to 12 volt for perminate lighting.
I picked up 16' rope light at local Walmart. Since these lights can be connected to another set for longer runs. Each end has a removable cap or male plug. So I transport with male end removed. And install it at set up on site. I keep the end that receives male plug end secured under slide out until needed.
This install took about 30 minutes and works well for what it is. Upgrading in off season just to get them slightly more user friendly. But works for what it is. Click image for larger version
