My opinion I am not too big on the running lights thing, and now it seems everyone is doing it in the camp ground. But, who am I to tell you what to do with your rig, I personally am taking a different route, hope to have it complete this weekend

My friends and I do the same thing with ours each evening, but when we retire for the night the lights go out. I actualy made a box with a female plug, fuse, flasher relay, three way switch but my buds just use a 20 amp fuse. In my opinion the lights look nice after dark and with the flasher relay you can make yourself easier to see in the case of an emergency while on the road.

may be a dead thread but, The wife and I usually found that we would get to the campground after dark and having extra light helped with getting everything hooked up instead of waving a flashlight around into the other camp sites. We had to disconnect the truck to get the fold out down. What i did was wire a relay inline to isolate the circuit from the truck. Then I had a switch in the storage compartment to turn them on. Also useful to check the lights out before I hitched up. It was wired so it would normalize to the pigtail and when I tossed the switch, it would activate the relay and switch to on board power that was properly fused.

Yep; it is how I do it when we are expecting guests after dark.
