To give an answer to the op's original question, I have rope lighting that snaps into a tube that goes in the accessory rail on my awning tube. I like it because it is a warmer light than the new led's and is less obtrusive to others. The only draw back is they are 110v and I have to run an extension cord to them which I manage to run/hide along the awning arm. Also have to take them down when retracting awning. All in all, they work well and give off a pleasant light. I do however want to get some led's which I will mount just below the awning on the wall of the rv. That way I can use them with the awning deployed or retracted. I also like having the light under the coach, think it looks neat but might do that in red or blue.

Every campground has rules and restrictions. No one lives in a "do whatever you want without concern for others" world. No generators after dark, no unleashed dogs, etc. I'd be surprised if there was campground anywhere that didn't have restrictions based on someone's idea of how others should behave.

You gotta wonder why somebody would take exception to people discussing the posted topic in a discussion group. Talk about telling others how to live their life by your own values. Physician heal thyself and all that.
OP asked for opinions on what kind to use and pro's and con of them, not if they should use them.

I have been searching for some outdoor lighting for some weeks. So many choices and hard to decide without seeing them in person. Today my lights arrived and I have to say I am very pleased. They are IP 68 rated and sit inside of a u-channel that will mount under the awning. I also bought the dimmer with it to keep the lights at an appropriate level. I did not buy a remote control dimmer as I didn't have a need for that. Fired them up this evening and am really pleased. I bought them at Recpro™ RV 16' White LED Awning Party Light w Mounting Channel White PCB | eBay One of my main requirements was native 12v and these fit the bill perfectly. Can't wait to see them installed this weekend.

I think you will be happy with them, even if others are not.

Us full timers like to go from "City" mode to "Country" mode and back again as the spirit hits us. We go camping sometimes but mostly we are just living like all you stix and brix rvers. Gotta love the on/off switch.

That's a good point I hadn't considered before. Most of the full timers I met are staying long term at independent parks. I only specifically remember one full timer I met in a national park and he was a professional wildlife photographer.

I'm sure there must have be others, but I never noticed the distinction before. I will have to start paying attention in the future. Thanks for the perspective.

Look again. Looks like most are in the "tastful" lights camp. Nobody wants airport runway lights or ANYthing blinking.

Thanks. We just finished 3 months boondocking in Quartzsite, AZ and when boondocking we rerely use ornamental light because we are on solar and generator for electric. When the campground has others decorating, we decorate. When the camp has no other rvs with lights we don't use ours. Mostly just change our habits to fit in with the "flavor" of the campground (or desert clearing)

I agree. They are obnoxious and an intrusion. So are the ones on the ground. If i wanted all these lights around inwould go to a stadium.
