Docking light mod.

All,
I recently had two docking lights installed, one on each side, just behind the rear wheels.
Backing up can have it challenges and the having these lights installed has made a huge difference backing up in the dark.
They are a Featherlite product.
Best regards,
UP4306

Hi up4306,
Any chance you could provide a link to the product?

Thxs.

Texan,
No link as the folks at Golden Gait ordered the lights. I suspect the folks at Featherlite can help you. They were around $90 each.

I've been thinking of doing the same thing because of the serious reflections in the front side windows, preventing me from seeing anything behind or to the sides of the RV at night. The side mirror cameras don't always help.

How did you determine where to locate the lights?

Do the lights operate off a switch or the backup light circuit?

Yes I noticed the same problems but only on the side cameras.

Robot Check I suggest you read the TV reviews on this unit - looks good.

Great idea.

These were spaced on both sides of the Axis where there would be no interference with storage or generator equipment. They come on only with placing the Axis in reverse.

I was thinking that a whopping powerful light would be most helpful. Either LEDs or 50 watt incandescent lights. In that situation, I'd run them off a separate switch and relay rather than the backup light circuit.
