We gave up those lights long ago....now we have a scare light by the entry door that lights up the area for intruders. Never have figured out the remote LED lights that ORV installed. Only the switch inside works to turn them on and off.

Never have had one yet.

Rope lights - because chain lights weight too much!

I hope you just turn them on for an instant when you'd hear something; not leaving those intrusive lights on!

I agree. Do people who live in Arizona have lights strung around their homes and vehicles permanently? I've never seen that.
I think it's more a "Look at me!!" thing.

Never had a complaint.

It's sad that one person camps one way and complains about how another person camps. One couple shows up with their RV, connects power and NEVER goes outside, except tp to walk the dog. Another couple arrives, sets up a BBQ, table and chairs, fire pit, fishing poles and a light to play games outside at night under the awning. Then the two proceed to complain how each other spends their time in the outdoors......sound familiar???

So....maybe what we need is a dating site for camping. You enter all the things you like and dislike and then you get matched up to camp with someone similar to your style. So one park would have people outside using equipment and doing things under the lights at night, and another campground with people just staying in their coach and walking their dog twice a day.

For sure, none of us seem to agree about anything, so it's a waste of effort. But, if you want to see the problem in action, go to Big Bend National park. You can't boondock, because they won't allow you to use the dispersed campsites in an RV. You're stuck in an RV park. The skies are amazingly dark, and the stargazing is spectacular. But, most of the time, there will be a few people around that have their patio strung up with all sorts of lighting, and have every look-at-me accent light on their rig turned on, and are inside watching TV or something. The LED strips under the awning often only have one brightness level from the factory, and it's shockingly bright at night. Meanwhile, stargazers are wandering around the campground with small red-colored headlamps looking for a spot to sit that's shaded from all the unused lighting.

The problem is not at all people being outside and using their lighting, in my experience. It's the ones who go out of their way to mark their territory, and don't shut them off when they go inside.
