Apology accepted!
Here's a solution that worked for me:
Get rid of the dogs, (after all it is their fault)!

Saw a post on another forum where a guy said he was parked next to a fellow who slept with his shades and windows open so he put his outside light on to block the view.

I turn it off because I don't want bugs swarming near the door when I get out in the evening to walk the dogs. Sometimes I forget. Apologies in advance to any and all BUGGED by it.

Never understood leaving a light on so someone could see to rob me. I would rather they had to stumble and fall over stuff and make lots of noise.

I do turn off my entryway light. However I have a 20 led light that is on top of my 20 ft. flag pole that shines on my "American Flag ". I hope nobody ask me to turn it off,
It's not going to happen. I am a good neighbor, but there are certain traditions. If I am next to someone who have their lights on, I close my blinds or shades and deal with it. I suppose I'll get some negative response from this post.

I can understand leaving the light on in while parked at WalMart or TS for security. There are probably so many parking lot lights on that one little porch light is not noticeable.

I choose to believe I am forgetful, not stupid. However my DH sometimes thinks it is the opposite, says that anyway. I believe his concern is the light bulb burning out. We can't get rid of the dogs, they are family. And Thanks for sign, Dave & Nola.

You need to replace the turn signal controller. They get quieter every year until you can not hear them any more.

When we are ATVing we leave the porch light on so our friends know what they are tripping over. (We park with 3 trailers and some times a tent all facing in.) When we are camping (read campground) we leave the light on under the step...... is that acceptable?
DW has no excuse now on the outside lights as the panel has illuminated red switches for them.
When it was my fault it use to be I would fall asleep on the couch (at home the recliner), obviously not going to bed means the light did not get turned off and waking up in a fog the auto response it to bramble to bed not tripping up the stairs or wake the sleeping.........wife (that's it ).

Well, I leave my light on so people won't steal my ****. Thieves LOVE the dark, so help them out and turn your lights off.

If there are many parking lot lights on that one little porch light is both useless for security....and a waste of battery power. :-(

Then they sue you for getting hurt while robbing you.

Like the guy that fell throught the skylight during a robbery and sued the owner for being unsafe or some such thing.

There's something wrong with that.

In my opinion, I find it very annoying to be parked next to a fellow RVíer who leaves their outside entry light all night. I like to sleep with the windows open and shades up to get fresh air. Canít do that when someone is parked next to me and is all lit up. Some of you who read this may consider me to be a cranky old man. Maybe youíre right, but I still like to hear from someone who may have an explanation for leaving their outside entry way light on all night.
In my coach is a roll of Duct Tape. Entry lights that are left on all night are easily fixed.
