I have been driving long distances for 45 year- mostly cars, vans, small trucks and large SUV's, trailers and now a MH. I have always flashed lights for large vehicles, and thought the professional and courteous thing to do. I always try to leave at least two to three truck length distance before moving back into the lane. It also, helps because in trying to leave a safe distance, cars will often cut right in front of the large vehicle and then come flying by on my right. It is nice to get confirmation that the lane is clear. I kind of think of it like holding the door for a lady or taking off my hat when entering a church. I must be old fashioned, and I am not even old.😀

What is the make and model of your dash cam? I want to get one.

ICC I am told stands for Interstate Commerce Commission. All that switch does is flash the clearance lights. Still have on clue why it's marked ICC. Now that doesn't sound right does it?

No longer King of the Road

The roads and drivers are not what what they were, but I follow my CDL training, relax, and have no problems.
I do avoid traffic congestion and take more old roads than freeways, however. It's fun out here if you make it so.
I never complain about things I can either fix or adapt to.
AND I have a button to flash the headlights, and another to flash the running lights.

reading several post back I wrote:
not all MH have one and moreover, The ICC Termination Act of 1995 is a United States federal law enacted in 1995 that abolished the Interstate Commerce Commission.

It was the ICC that used to make the safety rules and marketing laws and that is why it was called an ICC switch. That was abolished 20 years ago. The switch was invented back in 1958.

Older Macks, KW's, Peterbuit etc had these switches. Today most trucks have running lights just like cars and they do not have options for flashing. I think Volvo does provide a headlight on-off flash.
