Ok now I'm doing this! Thanks ??

Also yeah I think on a switch would be better than tied into reverse circuit.

In my own experience, I get the greatest benefit from covering the tow vehicle lights. The tail, brake, and reverse lights bouncing back at me from the diamond plate prevents me seeing anything beyond the front of the trailer.

The lights shining off the front of the camper idea. Get some magnetic sign material and cut to fit your back up lights with some overlap for the bed side and the tailgate. Only takes seconds to install when you get out to walk the site. Stuff is cheap.

I did exactly the same thing with mine. Put two on the back then two on the sides for all the same reasons you did. My cousin did the same thing after I did mine and he one upped my by also tying the backup light circuit into the switch that is for the little power jack light. He can flip the switch on the tongue jack light and everything lights up. I may need to do that.
