Ok, I was hauling stuff around today so the missus helped me video this BB. The first time I tested the lights (hand outside the window) she was giving a thumbs up or down as I indicated which light I was testing. As you can tell, the lights weren't working (at that time). After backing into the parking spot, the lights were working so I showed off for a bit.

A handy thing to have is some of those pre-wired, magnetic lights used for pulling another vehicle. They can be used temporarily on an offroad trailer that would normally get lights torn off off-road, or carried in an emergency auto kit in case a trailer or auto light gets busted or you decide to pull or haul unusual items. Or for getting badges!
