I find most parks don't want to get involved unless someone pitches a b!tch.

The folks next to us used to have a zillion lights but now he sits in the dark and instead of looking at the ocean, he stares out at the CG road. Kind of creepy.

Same with our '02 DSDP except we had two on each side (special order). They were bright due to the 1295 bulbs, but they were really bright when I put the 48 LED panels in!! I very seldom used them though as they did light up our site and others.

I guess I really don't understand. Not see how any light could bother me ?? Close my curtains. I see nothing but the inside of the curtains.

Our park we winter at has streetlights every fourth site. These light are probably 10'. Maybe 12' tall. Much brighter than any camper light could be.

Maybe if Im outside their light will attract some bugs away from us ??

Most of the time, you can block out the light, especially in cold weather, but there have been some swarm weather trips where you need to leave a window open and someone's obnoxious lights can be annoying.

If they're near me and they seem to do it every night, I have the ability to light them up like daylight with the lights that came on our coach. I changed ours to the COG LED's which are bright. Hopefully they get the message.

Usually, just politely talking to them will do the trick.

I never understood the fact of being afraid while staying in an RV park?? If you are afraid, don't stress yourself, stay home or find a different RV park.
I've never attempted stargazing in an RV park, so lights don't bother us.
Somehow one of us accidentally hit the port-side scare light switch(it's behind a cabinet door)and it was on all night. When I discovered it, I immediately visited my neighbors and apologized
I sure wish the RV switches were available with a lighted switch toggle lever.

I guess I can worry and be upset at many things but leaving the scare lights on isn't very high on that list. We have blackout shades that handle that. Now, if it was blinking clearance lights or howling dogs at midnight or drunken 0200 revelry or 'airing up' at 5 AM, then it's time for a visit from someone - i.e. usually the CG management would be the proper folks.

Scare lights, if they are a bother to you - a polite request should normally handle that easily. If someone is worried about an intruder, a 5 buck timer on a couple interior lights until 11:00 or so and a radio fairly low in volume to just hear though the walls work well
