If the lights are cool looking, myself and some other posters from earlier in the thread may be attracted...

We use them, a lot of them, LED, flood, the works. But only when we are boondocking, that way our friends can find us, as we are the brightest, the kids can play, the TV is on too. But once everyone starts to calm down, and either sit around the fire, or hit the sack, everything goes off, and me and the wife and whomever wants, just sit and watch the stars. When I go and invite the family and friends, it's more about watching them have fun, as I did when I was young. Live is short, everyone is different, and that is a good thing. If I come into a camp that is all quiet and dark, I have the option to leave and if I'm expecting friends, I do, if I don't expect anyone, I stay and enjoy it with the others around me. To me, it's about living life to the fullest, I've been given another chance and I'm not missing it this time around.

That's what I love about the camping -- all the lights and noise!!! NOT!!! So many people want to impress everyone (as if) with all their lights and watts of sound and racing razers. Oh I am SOOO impressed. Ugh...........trashy.

IMO I find large groups of tenters to be the biggest "light polluters" I've seen groups set up and turn night to day and keep the darn lights on all night long!

Re: Lights. I walk around the campgrounds and at the NASCAR races in the infield and see the creativity of lights that people put up and around their rigs, I think it is cool. My son puts lights around the perimeter of his rig for the purpose of staking out his territory. We enjoy camping and traveling and we have encountered all kinds of situations from children running around to peace and quiet and railroad trains close by, But we love it all.

Oh the peace and tranquility of camping on a dark night, then you have this. Not my style, but all is good. Click image for larger version

You know what? My wife loves them and just gets a lot of pleasure having them. Ground lights, tiki torches, even the Starshower- just pleases her to no end. And she puts them out where she wants them, and when it gets dark she checks to make sure they're not bothering or annoying to other campers. Is there anything wrong with that?!?

Absolutely not! If Mama's happy, everybody's happy!

17 ft LED pure white dimmable strip light, 3M mastic attached just under stowed position of awing. Hard wired to outside light source.

FYI
Additionally, for night time safety, installed pure white, LED 12" strip lights under each articulating step, hard wired to step well switch located just inside the door. The 12" strip lights were bought from auto store and appear more robust than typical "trim your length type".

Enjoy your RV and the varying sites to the fullest, while being considerate of your temporary new neighbors.
