I like that box that robertsunrus made up. I currently use a spare vehicle side connector with a wire inside connected to the proper terminals. If I recall correctly I believe a fuse is not needed as the running lights are on a circuit breaker already.
Robertsunrus gave me an idea to make up a box with a switch for the backup lights so I can have a little more light around the back of trailer if needed.

I agree with you , Ricky. Light pollution is a drag. It reminds me of once when a big monster new 5th wheel was parked near us. The owners were so proud of their unit that they had every outside light on all night long. Many of them were big bright white ones. So much for the stars and relaxing time by the campfire.

On the other hand, I can appreciate the safety benefit if pulled over on the side of the road, etc.

The connector positions that allow you to run your running lights while parked are at the 11 and 1 O'clock positions.

After reading this thread I went out and put a jumper in my 7 way. The tail lights come on but only the rear window awning side lights up. The other rear and both front light don't come on. I checked all the bulbs and checked with my meter. No juice in 3 of the marker lights. Any thoughts?

We got this a couple of years ago...plug your umbilical cord into it and it allows you to have all the lights on continuously, or have all the running lights on with the tail lights flashing... Handy in emergency situations... But we use it for "party lights" when we have them on in a campground... (We don't leave them on all night so as not to disturb neighbors)... They are also handy if someone is coming to visit you in a campground... We tell them to look for the Airstream with the running lights on...

Unfortunately, they company that made them went belly up and they are no longer sold.

Hey Jammer ! I'd be interested in hearing and seeing more about how you went about your interior switch.....

Purchased the RVGlow for $20 and what I received was essentially a 50cent 20amp fuse.

Would not recommend.

No picture needed. Picture a 20 amp blade fuse and that is what it is. When the box came I thought it was empty....

That looks cool! I'd love something like that.

How we kept our running lights on while camping

We used a 10 amp blade fuse as seen below to keep our running lights on during a Christmas/New Year's Alley Not a Rally get-together.

You might need a 20 Amp fuse.

Hi, my trailer has incandescent bulbs in all of the clearance lights , LED's for tail and brake lights. My original light control box had a 10 Amp fuse in it and worked fine. Until at a Rally, I plugged it into a trailer with all incandescent bulbs, and blew the fuse. I replaced it with a 20 Amp fuse. This depends on how many, and what kind of lights you are powering.
