Bumpety-Bump in preparedness for Mother Nature's Fall Gloriousness camping trips & subsequent winterizations.
Don't want to accept that this Hints-Gadgets-Products-Gizmos thread dried up and died. Surely somebody, somewhere, has something new to ad.

Was thinking about this thread just the other day and realizing I hadn't seen anything new. I haven't done it yet, but I'm considering a motion-activated light near the door for when we forget to leave our porch light on. It may have to be one that we remove when we are on the road.
Does anyone have a good idea for this?

We hang suction cup hooks on the outside for hanging bathing suits and towels.

Why not just replace the coach porch light with something like MG1000-450W, 12 Volt Exterior Motion Sen........ht RV Security Motion Porch Light, White while keeping the current switch. Can turn the light off as normal. Light says it can be used as both motion activated or standard porch light. Also says it wires in to the current coach wiring/battery.

We installed a battery operated motion light From Amazon while still in Florida and it has stayed on for the trip to MI and a thousand miles since. One was installed just above the keyhole and the other in the stepwell of the DP.

It only comes on when you get close and does not stay on long. Just enough to get things unlocked.

Not sure I understand what you are saying.

A joke scooby... taking a fuse and place it between ground and running lights on your parked trailer, lighting the trailer up [emoticon]
