Running lights on shore power

FYI - there is a 7-way adapter you can purchase to keep your running lights on.

Just an FYI, a mini fuse seems to fit too. Don't need to bend the terminals at all, but it isn't the tightest fit.

From what I understood "chicken lights" were ecxess lights over and above what is required by DOT, not the regular running lights.

See pic for many chicken lights...
As for why they are called that? Not sure, just assumed driver was afraid of the dark.

chicken lights were originally called that when "playing chicken". Both would turn all their lights off and the first one to turn them on was the "chicken"
