I had bought this switch for something, though I don’t remember what. So I thought that since the reversing lights are very bright and I do not need to go driving about with them on accidentally, that I should use this switch to give me some feed back. Also the reversing lights serve as work lights, so they do not go off when the ignition goes off, as I might accidentally leave then on if I’m not looking.
Since fitting the second reversing light I have not walked behind the Land Rover and seen what they look like. I have been using them as I have been reversing around in the drive way a fair bit recently. Since there is no street lighting around these parts, having reversing lights that actually illuminate the world behind is a bonus.
