Add Add'l Brake & Signal Lights

I would like to add some add'l lights in the back since my Hydralift with motorcycle seems to block some of the brake and signal lights. Anyone have any ideas? Just need to provide some better visibility to those behind us. thanks ahead for any help!

Why not just set up another set of lights on the carrier and plug them in just like you were towing a vehicle

I was thinking of doing that, but that requires another thing to put on, take off, etc. was looking for more permanent solution to just leave on the MH

Why do you need to plug and unplug them the lift stays on the motor home just leave them plugged in or bypass the plug and hardwire them in

One of the POs of our coach added LED light strips as additional brake/turn lights. Vertical red and yellow strips on the rear cap and a "3rd light" horizontal across the back. Looks like a pretty easy install, the wires are run through the cap down low and enter the engine compartment where they tie into the coach's existing red/yellow stop/turn signals. Additional resistive loads may affect the turnsignal blink rate, from what I can tell the LEDs don't have enough load to speed up/slow down the signal rate.

The wire down the left side was a temp' XM radio antenna routed from the roof to the bedroom via the engine hatch. The wires to the lights are invisible. The horizontal brake light is just under the edge of the photo.

the lift goes down to the ground; it can't have anything interfere this way. also, there are a lot of tie down straps involved that would prevent hooking lights up to this. thanks for the thought though

I like the idea of the vertical strips. think I'll go to Autozone today. thanks everyone. if I get a solution, I'll take a pic after with the bike on the lift and in the air
