Depends on how hunky he was... if he's a hunk... yes... if not, no! LOL! Perspectives.

Here's what I did...

To keep my outdoor rope lights OFF after the evening activities, I picked up an inexpensive manual dial timer and plugged it in in one of the bay outlets. This is where I plug in all outdoor lighting. They turn on and they turn off automatically Can't always count on my memory especially after campfire wine

cheers,
Joopy

Would it be rude to tell them to turn them off ?

Some people use the lights to discourage pack rats and other nocturnal rodents from chewing wires or trying to enter the coach at night.

All I ask is that people be quiet after midnight and not talk so loud that I can hear you with windows shut and AC on!!!! Now super bright panic lights are a pain and I find most people forget they left them on but I generally live and let live

Lori-
Same here but I understand that not all (Tenters for example) do not have them.

My awning lights are all solar just now (i need to get one more string) so they run from dusk to around midnight then the batteries run out.

We leave our area lights on all night, if you were to knock on my door, our dog Junior would tell you to go mind your own business

The answer lies in the title of the thread... to 'tell them' would be rude. To ask them would be acceptable if you aren't able to sleep with them shining into your camper.( but I would do it in the daytime....) The blue ones wouldn't be as annoying to me as the white ones.

Just telling would be rude. Asking would be proper. However, with so many selfish, inconsiderate jerks in the world [moderator edit], even asking would be inadvisable. You never know how the other person will react, especially if s/he has been drinking.

We loved the looks of the blue leds on the awnings and I was excited that the new camper had them. But we soon noticed they lit up the campground. We've been turning them off, but I'm not so sure the sound of the old half blind dog clumsily flopping down the metal steps at midnight to go out isn't worse. Are you opposed to any outside light or just the bright leds? And I'd love to hear what folks use as an alternative, as I have been trying to come up with one. 2nd trip out with the camper (2nd time with no overnight lighting), the racoons left foot prints on my chair. Wonder if they slept on it? I am not going to leave the leds on, as they really are so bright. Are they brighter on some newer models?

We used to camp in a popup with no a/c so on warm nights we would have all the windows open to get good air circulation. We had a camper next to us that had a light on all night long. The next day as I was walking by I politely asked them if there was a reason why their outside light stayed on all night long, was it on a motion detector or something? They understood the question, didn't get offended and the light was off the next night. Now, since we have a class C, I have dark curtains in the overhead bunk and the a/c running it's not as big an issue.

I installed a strip of LED lights under my full wall slide, which is on the "fun"'side of the Rv where we sit. My FWS has a "lip" on the outside so the light does not shine outwards--only downwards. It's perfect for providing light to avoid trip hazards, and for getting stuff out of the basement but it is not at all a glaring light (unless you are short enough to walk under my FWS).

the first thing I would do is probably turn my lights on as bright as I could get them if I saw someone creeping around taking pictures of the campers around them.

I would have no problem of someone asking me to turn ours off. However as you approached our MH, my five Chi's are going to go nuts and wake up the entire camp ground, but hey that is why I have them. Best darn Alarms I could buy.
