    Thinking about installing one of these in our pop up for the kids at night to be able to see. I think the type that is the outlet cover rather than just plug it into the socket. One less thing to deal with when packing down. Anyone did or something similar?

    We don’t really boondock as a family. I use it as a hunting cabin sometimes but as a family we stay in modern sites.

    I've got one on the landing of the staircase. In the house, not the camper. It puts out a good bit of light and is not adjustable. It may be too much in a camper. Of course, there is always electrical tape to adjust brightness.

    That’s what I was thinking, I was hoping it would be a little more tame since it was pointed down.

    I just used a plug in night light. I also had the chepo battery stick on light switch. Then my daughter outgrew them. So we dont have anything now.

    Do you have standard household outlets in the PUP? These work by wings on the side screw, mostly, and must be screwed in like a household outlet cover. If you have RV type outlets, they have no center screw and probably no screws on the side for the wire.

    A led flashlight at low setting with only 1 bulb on lasts the entire summer. Cheap and effective. You can see a lot with it at night.

    A cheap battery operated puck light will work. You can just stick it where you want it and not worry about it. And if you decide to dry camp, it will still work.

    I stuck my head in the camper and you are correct it has the camper outlets.

    THose battery candles last a while and give off just enough light.

    I prefer the candle stick type that take 2 AA's, no flicker, and has lasted many many nights of camping!!

    We use rechargeable lantern on nightlight setting at night. Not too bright even for light sensitive people.

    We like the square LED flat style plug in’s. You can change the color to suit your preference. I always have one on. Very helpful for middle of the night bathroom trips. If no shore power, we use a flashlight or the pull cord type LED bulbs strung up above the dinette.
