I find it interesting how so many have posted how I should camp this way, or I should only do this or that.

I have lights, I expressed that above and earlier, and I sometimes use them, and sometimes not. I have found that what suits my needs and mood one day may not fit the next day, and that is just me deciding for me. I cannot imagine how people who do not know me, know anything about me, know anything about my life, can be so sure what I should or should not do.

1. Be respectful of others

2. Have fun

3. Relax. Live and let live. If your neighbor has a problem, help him out. If he has a lifestyle different than yours, learn about it. You might learn something. If you cannot, or choose not to, that is okay too. Just do not expect everyone else to treat you with respect if you cannot respect another to make choices that are right for them...

It was a joke, as things had become way to serious. I am aware of the original point of the thread, as I responded to the OP early on in this thread how I had installed my lights.

Awning Lights

I have bought three or four different type of lights and different hangers for the awning and rarely went through the hassle to hang and take down. Finally purchased LED adhesive strip light to apply to the awning roller. One plug to the lights and done! Love it. Also have solar LED rope light to put along motorhome when don't unroll the awning.

What qualifies as upscale? I have met many tacky people with money. I have met many cool and sophisticated people without much.

More than that, I know people with both who would not ever go to an 'upscale' RV Park because of the pretense there...

There are lots of things that one may like that another will not. I choose not to draw lines based on money alone.

Mine came with the LED strip under the awning and I personally do not care for it, too bright for the most part. We usually do not even have lights on outside, attracts bugs around the door. We prefer to use a flashlight if dark and sit around a fire and watch the stars at night. Just thought I would add to this thread since it has gone on for so many pages.

Nitty gritty:
Rope lights around the rig, in the Southwest, will keep pack rats from invading and chewing your wires.
They are nocturnal. They will not cross over the lights, although they could, but will move on to a darker target instead.
Did I mention that rope lights come in a variety of nifty colors?

Thanks, I hadn't thought of that. I wonder what, if any, varmints are attracted to the lights.
