All "cool" kids run with blue ground effect lights, don't know about red!

We avoid traveling at night unless it was and extreme emergency, like trying to get away from a hurricane or tornado.

Us too. We want to be in camp and set up by 3:00 PM to relax and enjoy things. An adult beverage may sneak its way into the mix.

I believe in most states those under chassis lights, either neon or LED are unlawful.

"Laws concerning the use of neon underglow lights are typically covered under the lighting requirements of state traffic laws or motor vehicle codes. Most states have specific laws concerning restrictions on the use of accent lighting and other unlawful vehicle modifications, in terms of color, form, type, and location on the vehicle. As a general principle, underglow lights are legal so long as they remain covered and unlit on public roads and do not flash or include the colors red or blue.
Because the laws on underglow lights vary greatly by state, drivers looking to add underglow lights should first check under the unlawful vehicle modification laws of their particular state to avoid potential warnings and penalties."

Perhaps they look cool when the rv is parked and set up, but try it and see how quick the cops stop you while driving.

I am also sure that the many different colored lights on the front caps are considered docking lights, not driving or clearance lights. Like Brad stated earlier about the 3 lights together meaning a load wider than 80" or 84" like below the rear of a boat trailer.

Check in your particular state for different laws regarding these lights.

Thank you, that answers my question. I appreciate this.
Ideally , like others have said, I'll try to do my traveling during the daylight hours..
Safe travels and thank you all for the input.

We have purple lights on our HDT and the Redwood. They add a nice glow, and look pretty cool too. I do a fair amount of night driving and they also let me know where the coach is when backing up. We used all ledís and probably will add more to the HDT this winter.
