Ive been constantly wondering how people do this without the fancy "kit". So do the lights work off the battery or shore cord when u jump the prongs. And, are we talking the 7 pin round connector? If someone could post a pic thatd be extremely helpful. Thanks!!!

The 7way connector on the front has all lights and a charge line, that goes to the 12V system. So use the charge line to feed power to lights, and then you're lit up.

I just plug a 7.5 amp fuse into the two slits at the bump on the plug and it lights my running lights up

From my old desert race days, running lights, rope lights, and a mega-watt multi color strobe on top of a 20 ft mast. Really adds to the camping natural lighting,,, LOL. Get about 20 rigs lit up like that in the middle of the desert and it's almost impossible to get lost. My ways have changed.

I can't imagine people leaving their running lights or markers on all night. If you were meant to do that every rig would have factory installed switches for that purpose. Its just a novelty fir those who want a little pizzaz for special occasions.
