  15. What are you guys towing?

    And for those curious why the running lights are on, is I have tied one of these into the top dead center running light on the back of the trailer. Due to angle I only can see 20' or so right behind the trailer. however I can back right up to a tree or rock or house in that 20' no problem by...
