I follow what he wants! Saying parking lights is wrong terminology. They are clearance and tail lights.
I have seen many rigs all lit up. One I really "enjoy" are the ones that install a flasher instead of a jumper.

I think everybody that tows should carry a flasher with slightly bent prongs to jump from battery charge to taillight on the plug. If need to unhook on the shoulder, the flashing lights might be called a safety device.
As to the people that want the markers on while camping, do you need to change your pants after you drive past a truckstop?

Not clear if you have an issue with PVC light poles or the guy had a 150 watt light bulb. Lots of people have PVC lamp posts, most like me put a 15 or 20 watt bulb in them.

Unfortunately his was not a 15W bulb. I still think there is no reason to keep a light on all night. If you have a dog and let it out during the night you turn the light on and then off when done.

I hate when people leave lights on all night. If you are scared of the dark stay in town. The only reason I turn on a light is to take the dog out in the middle of the night. The only reason for that is so that he can see the steps and it gets turned back off as soon as we get back inside

No, you have not had any posts deleted. Take a look on the 1st page of this thread for your post. If you made a later one then then only thing I can suggest is that you forgot to hit the "post" button.

By the way, the best way to find out an answer like that is to PM the mod.
