Hitch Hookup Light

Because my back up camera setup does not do well in low light situations, I have been trying (unsuccessfully so far) to find a 12V portable high intensity light with a clamp that I can set up when needed. It would be clamped to a bike rack mounting bar already installed in from of the propane tanks. Ideally, it would powered out of the battery box or I'll run a 12v extension cord. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Jack

I have a grill light that has a magnetic base that works pretty well for this. It has a long flexible neck with the light at the end.

My daughter gave it to me for my birthday several years ago. I never used it as a grill light, but it is pretty handy for other uses.

I use rechargeable LED with magnet. Snap on has some great ones and there are others. Handy in a hundred ways in set up or tear down as is my Maglight LED pocket light that I clip on my ball cap bill to shine where I look. LED is the real answer in every light.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to look for a magnetic light that will certainly attach to the bike rack post. I do have a light on our power jack, but I should of clarified that I've had this difficulty during that day. Because we have an open storage spot with a roof, it is the shadows cast by the roof that creates the problem.
