Shedding Some Light

We always seem to leave for our trips on Friday after work, so we usually get to the campsite after dark. Since the Caboose doesn't have reverse lights, there never seems to be enough light for backing.

I scoured the 'net looking for ideas and saw everything from magnetic mount lamps, to bumper mounted fog lamps. I went to my trailer to check the wiring possibilities and discovered that the red lens easily pops off when I depress the little tab with my thumbnail.

I stood there checking out the wires when I suddenly realized, I was staring at a white light bulb! All I need to do for backup lights is pop the lenses off and toss them on top of the PUP for a few minutes. What could be cheaper than that?
