I just picked up a couple of small solar lights for my walkway at home, and after looking at them last night thought of a couple more neat uses for them. One being on the TT to add a light for unlocking at night.
these little lights are only $5.50 at Dollar general stores. Are motion activated, and do have an on/off switch. When on they light dimly, and brighten when motion is sensed.
They have double sided tape on the back or can be screw mounted.

I got the same solar lights on-line for the same price. I've used Velcro to attach one to the MH.

I have one over my side door at home. It's better than leaving the porch light on and attracting bugs. Its been working perfect for about a year.

Hi,

They last about 2 years and then die. The dollar stores have a similar produce cheaper than Dollar General.

I did love mine while it lasted.

I use them to chase away the pack rats. Don't know if they really work, but so far I haven't had a problem with them, and prefer that to a lamp that is on all night.
