Christmas Decorating Tip

Here is a tip for fulltimers or those who will be spending Christmas in your Suite.

1. Drill a hole in your electrical junction box that is on your kingpin box to fit a small toggle switch in.

2. Then wire one leg of the switch into the 12 vdc hot wire from the battery/converter.

3. Then wire the other leg of the switch into the parking light wire.

4. Then button it all back up, and you can switch your suite parking lights on for extra Christmas decorating lights or use it anytime you want all year long with your outside party lights when you choose.
Or, choose to ignore this post! It's completely up to you..

I have did this on my last two 5ers without any problems..

Christmas Decorating Tip

Saw this at a campground over Halloween, it looked great. Wanted to do it but didn't know how. Looks like you "got it done".

Question, what are the connecting wire colors?
