Do rope lights bother you?

Wait until these start showing up.

Not at all. I have a set that I can change to multiple colors. I'll probably add more.

I have discovered thru iRV2 that everything you do will bother someone.

Depends, if I'm at an RV Park.. no concerns, pretty much the equvalent of staying at a hotel that I brought my own room too.

At a camground in a National Park, especially one designated as a dark sky region... yes, I'm there to get away from all the bright lights, enjoy peace and quite, the views, watch wildlife and stargaze. You'll find many (most?) tent campers in the campground will have similar thoughts.

IMHO RV Park vs wildernes type camgrounds are two differnt atmospheres with differnt expectations of behavior.

I have no problems with even bright lights as long as the people who have them are using them. I just have a problem if they flood the campground with light when they are snug in bed.

Flood lights aren't necessary. We've gotten along for the last 60 yr. of camping with a flashlight and the small porch light. The only thing worth reading in the OP's link he posted are the last paragraphs:

"But with all of this new light at your disposal, you’ll want to be sure to follow the Peter Parker Principle: “With great power comes great responsibility!” Darkness is a resource that’s becoming harder and harder to come by, affecting the lives and well-being of many nocturnal species.

Be sure to respect the environment that you’re in, and any neighbors nearby, and only use your lights when needed, and in appropriate places. Being able to see around your RV in the dark is great, providing comfort and security for you and your loved ones. But having powerful lights shining in your windows all night long is a real bummer… and surely something you wouldn’t want YOUR neighbors doing".

The "quieter ones" are ok but the bright, multicolored ones ruin the campground atmosphere for us. Remember we like camping in state parks, COE parks, city and county parks and NPs so not looking for the RV party resort atmosphere.

If they are rude enough to blast their laser light show all night, then we shut the shades. Larger resorts will ask them to turn them off after 10pm.

A little consideration in everything does go a long way though.

No your lights don't bother me at all!

If you like the lights... you do what you like, as long as your following campsite rules.

Rope lights, under coach lights, led lights, awning lights, porch lights turn them all on...
have them bright, let them flash and change colors.... Because I DON"T CARE!

I have great blackout shades! Like is said...I don't care, and wont see what you have on!

Those of you that think it ok to tell everyone else what to do with their lights should get a full set on your coach and replace your junk ones that are letting all the light in. If they aren't braking any rules, its fine by me!
