Its the light that I had to complain to management about on one occasion. We go to get away from it and in one campground, our curbside neighbor had two on his 20ft camper and had them on all night. Our day/night shades and even towels hanging over them wouldn't keep the light out. It was like daylight in out camper. I thought about shooting them out but figured that would get me in trouble so I just complained and that worked. Now I carry on of the halogen shop lights and if it happens again, I will set that out and point it at the offending campers bedroom window.

OK, I'm off my soapbox now.

Yep those pesky nocturnal bats, owls, fireflies, possums, whitetail deer, red fox, and croaking frogs are out there looking for RVs without scare lights to carry off to their killing fields.

If anything - it's there to scare away two legged wildlife up to no good. Perhaps relocating the sensor wiring to the inside coach lights and a mattress buzzer in the bedroom would be more effective and less obtrusive to others. Or maybe establish a perimeter with a portable electric fence.

Don't see the real benefit of a light that doesn't wake you up but wakes up the neighbors. They'd probably give the little critters a hand.

My apologizes to anyone who was offended by my post. I thought since it was a abbreviation it would be considered OK. I will be more careful in the future.

What the hay. No harm no foul and actually worse heard on any school playground or prime time sit-com. But rules are rules, even for us grownups.

The scare light was out before and fixed under warranty. I don't want to drag the TT back out to the dealer just for a little issue like this.

If it turns out to not be a fuse, what should I check next?

I am sure thinking grounding problems and that takes trouble shooting to find bad ground connection(s).

Well, I finally experienced a scare light (formal nomenclature: docking light, driver side light to assist in pedestal hookup).

Last night Frick and Frack came to camp at 1130 PM. Roar in, talk loud, SCARE LIGHT on, hook up, and finally go to bed....SCARE LIGHT STILL ON!!!!

I got back to sleep okay. A neighbor did not. As we left next AM, my neighbor was approaching the SCARE LIGHT rig. I did not stick around.

Perhaps a big horse blinder to deflect the light down on the pedestal? A dryer vent maybe?

Just sayin.....
