Out side lighting.

Has anyone thought about putting lights on the back side? I don't under stand why they don't put a light over the docking station when it is almost always pitch black night when I put into a campground.
What about motion sensor lighting for when you happen to be in a not so safe place for a while?

I see Mobile D have lights all around so you can see when walking around to the back at night. My 05 toy hauler had a light over the dock station.

I saw a Redwood the other day with LED strip lighting under his awnings and it lit up the hole court yard on front side. I would like to add that also but haven't found them yet.

Any suggestion?

I put some small lightweight motion sensing LED lights around our Redwood. I attached them with command strips and remove them when transporting.

There are So many options for lighting We use the big button light you tap on to light up the hook up area. Before that I always keep a bag of goodies in the storage area and two of them were a flash light of sorts. One wasy snake light. And the other was my rigid light with 18v lithium battery. Both always worked out in a pinch.

There are several different options for the LED strip lights. Here is an example from Camping World.

I bought our led under awning lights from M4. Also bought led bulbs, and they have other lights a person can add.

We got the led awning lights - love them, but they are only of use when the awnigns can be out...

All our cubby holes HAVE lights in them, including the convenience center, yours does not ?

The wife picked up a lighted baseball cap for me and these for my regular caps... since I USUALLY look at what I'm working on - they work well to free up my hands for work

I use them when going out late so I don't disturb the neighbors (or mosquitos!)

Thanks that's what I am looking for. I'm not in a good place at this time and this will work great.

Yes we have all of the hidden lights. I was mainly looking for some light to light up the out side all around the camper. I am parked in between some buildings in a not so good part of town. I want the camper to light up when a stranger walks by.

I have two of them, will probably add two more. My only complaint is that they are dimly lit even with no motion.once they detect motion they put out an amazing amount of light. I wish they were completely off until needed but have been unable to find those so far that are very bright.
