I have purchased a Kar Kaddy SS which has lights and want to use the suction cup type lights on the toad. I know my coach has a 7 pin system. Can anyone recommend an easy set up to get both lights hooked up to my coach and recommend a lighting system to mount on the trunk of the toad. Thanks

I used the magnetic lights for a while, but they scratch the paint after you get the bases dirty once or twice. I bought, boat trailer, sealed LEDs. On our Jeep they fit nicely behind the rear window. A piece of Velcro held them well, and they are bright enough to be seen throuh the dark tint windows.

I now use the on the pickup. I hold them onto the tailgate with Velcro.

When using the magnetic lights, make sure you secure the wiring that goes to the back for the lights. The wind motion moving the wiring back and forth while going down the road will cause "wear marks" on your toad paint finish -- especially black -- I have a black Ford Focus as my toad and found out the hard way. Luckily was a short trip and I was able to buff out the marks. I have since installed permanent lights which are directly connected to my MH lights.

I just received a catalog from RV Upgrades that has wireless tow lights. You may want to investigate them.
