Hi Scomor, greetings from central Kentucky and welcome to the forum
Like some others, I have a piece of wire with an inline fuse in it. I insert that into the AS plug to connect the running lights to power. I also have a string of Airstream trailer lights that I hang from the edge of the awning. I unplug the trailer by about 10 PM but the little trailer lights are very dim and I just keep them all the time.
I've heard some complaints about the rope and security lights. Like all things camping you have to have consideration for your neighbors. Like many things, some people will just take things to the extreme. We prefer the state parks and "over 55" resorts. They seem to be pretty much what we're looking for when we camp. The younger crowd seems to enjoy the "Jellystone" camping resorts. To each his/her own, I guess.
