Running light switch and tester
Here are some views of the unit I made to manually control the lights on the the Excella. The switch gives me 3 choices: running and tail; left stop and turn; right stop and turn. It works as a circuit tester and a convenient way to leave the running lights on when parked. Same basic idea will adapt to the bladed socket design.

That looks like a Ford lightswitch on there.

batteries ran down

I have tied this a couple of times, but after the last time, I got back to my AS and the batteries were completely dead. It was connected to shore power for a month, so I thought it would recharge the batteries at the same time??? I used a 10 fuse to bridge the gap and left them on all night. Not sure what happened.

I have a 2017 Serenity 19 with all LED lights and with a back up camera. I took the batteries into Interstate for testing. Hoping they are ok or I can get a warranty replacement.

Any thoughts?

On our trailer the battery disconnect switch needs to be in the "use" position not the "store" position to keep the batteries topped up when on shore power.

Not sure if your trailer has the same switch.
