Campers, Please turn off your outside lights when you go to bed as a courtesy to other campers who would like to sleep with the windows open.

If you turn off the light a squirrel may poop on the picnic table.

Nah, can't turn off the lights, gotta keep an eye on my open frame genset as it screams merrily away while I sit inside my camper with the A/C running full tilt. Hey, if I can't see it or hear it from inside my camper it's all good. [emoticon]

The latest trend is the plug that keeps your running lights on all night. I'm not sure I understand why you would want to do that.

At least they don't hook the running lights up to a flasher....

We were at Quakertown State Recreation Area (Indiana), near Liberty, Indiana. We arrived on a Thursday evening and we were practically, the only camper there. It was so dark at night, you couldn't even see your hand in front of your face. It was marvelous! Friday night the week-enders started coming in and then this happened (photos below). We were parked clear on the other side of the campground and had no neighbors. These lights were so bright, I could easily read a newspaper by this light at my camper.

Next day I made an attempt to look at the camper with the blue lights. Looked like they put aftermarket blue lights across the nose cap of their camper. Yea, from where they sit under the awning, they'd never see the light. But good-grief for the rest of the campground. It was absolute awful. And they left the dang things on all night.

Eventually that white (gosh-dang awful horrible unbelievable, brightest thing I'd ever seen in ANY campground) light was finally turned off. But that blue one.... bright as a search light on the top of a light house, never went off.

Yea, I was horribly disappointed, especially after the marvelous dark the night before:

If you are the owner of the camper that has these blue lights, your blue lights do not impress me. Instead, they irritate me and wish you would turn them off when you go inside!

I am OK having lights on from my neighbors when everyone is still outside after dark, kids are playing, and things going on. But gosh dang-it, when you go inside, turn the things off!
