External RV Lighting

Most RVs today are equipped with lighting on awnings, around wheels wells, or under the belly. While 99% of the time, those light sources are specifically for “ambiance,” they could be used if needed when conducting repairs at night. Having good alternative light sources should do double duty for your camper.

Pro Tip: Because all types of external lighting are “important” when RVing, I’ve broken this down into three categories: essential, nice to haves, and glamping.

Essential: Whether it be going out at night to access storage areas or to walk the pooch – these are the kinds of lights I use every day.
