    Rear lights are now operational. I panicked the first time I tried to fire them up and they did not work. Then I remembered I left the primary power unhooked for safety. Once I put that back together everything was good. Pictures later tonight

ID:	28929 Behind the trailer. I do have some minor adjusting to do, but I need to be away from the garage. On big thing is where they are placed there is ZERO upward glare walking around the trailer. So when I go to hook up things I wont be fighting it.

        Yoda Keith,

        Excellent job! Adding lights to my Imagine is definitely in my future.

          Thanks - I learned a lot. Some things I might do different is run the loom exterior along the frame. Run a smaller wire gauge. (whatever the light need) In other words pick your lights and based on power needed and distance of run choose the wire gauge. Mine was overkill and made some of the connections difficult. And for the wiring up front, run the wires and then add the loom once you know where your going. This is going to help me stay out of hurting myself at night. I think the light output is about right - not blinding or lightning up a runway for miles.

          Side note on one of the 4x4 forms I visit once in a while, a guy was building the ultimate LED off road light system. It had multiple (dozens) of the brightest light bars and other lights you could imagine. If I remember correctly he had several thousand WATTS of LED power. I have no idea why he was doing it, but I guess he could.

          Now I did have an idea, but it is probably nuts to do. I wonder if there is a simple way to put a remote in the trailer and be able to turn the light on in case we hear something bad. Probably take another relay and a remote doohickey thing. Hit the button and the world lights up. Hmmmm need to do more research.
