I'm still curious if the can be worked to a switch on the trailer or in cab or if they have individual switches to go on and off.

Even the amber ones can get border line when you see the truck and or trailer (semi) with the lights all over the outside.

For trucks (comercial) they have begun to lax up on the extra lights as it is now being used as an extra "safety margin" to be seen. It is still technically illegal but less enforced.

Here in PA they removed the ornamental lighting laws for motorcycles.

They are completely stand alone self contained with a small hole that you poke a (included) pin into to turn off and on. I turned mine off before getting the road several hours ago.

Again, I dont plan on crusing the highways and interstates with them, just as extra insurance when maneuvering tight unlit areas. I'm sure we've all experienced a few close calls.

I have one of these lights set to light up my shed when I go out to it in the dark. It does a great job and is moisture proof too.

Nice idea. I just ordered a set of amber lights. Using them for clearance lights at night in tight situations is nice but also as lighting around the unit at the site at night and if you have to hook up anything in the dark as well.

I think we all might be missing the boat here - Iron Cobra had an issue and found a solution to his problem. As nice as his modification turned out, he thought he would share it with all of us in case we experienced the same issue. I believe his solution would be considered the same as the "docking lights" that come on some MH's but for TT's. I think we might have read into his post that he ran down the road with these lights on, but, and I could be wrong, I gathered he used these in the campground when parking and setting up after dark.

I recall that a few years ago a lot of truckers were being stopped in PA for the various extra lights and hey had on their rigs.

I like the idea and they look great on trucks, not so much on motorcycles.

Has anyone else been blinded by the newer rear facing overhead lights on police cars? The PA troopers have very bright white lights facing on coming traffic.

if there was an off on switch and they were waterproof you'd be safe.
I was looking at something the other day that was 2 D cell operated but had s clip on the back that would fit directly over the wheel well of the rear tire.
Thought it might work as well.
On off switch with removable access.
I do like the solar light though as it also lights the stairs. (one of DWs peeves)
