I used a
party lighting kit, e.g. from Amazon UK here. The exact one shown in the photos
is slightly different and availability varies. But they're much of a
muchness - just don't expect the same detailed step by step
instructions as from LEGO themselves! And they all need a little
improvisation here and there in terms of wiring paths.
Getting started by taking the camper's front off and feeding the
headlamp and sidelamp wires through...
Feeding the LED wires back through brick joins is
a little nerve wracking - what if the wires get pinched or broken?
Happily, they're thin enough to withstand a little pressure - plus I
tried to feed them through brick joins that were less critical where
Trying to keep the wire paths as neat as possible...
Now at the back of the camper, feeding wires through gaps in the
engine bay, about to fit the tail and number plate lights...
With all wires in place, I didn't want a loose wiring loom, so I
added a few spare brick parts and several strips of gaffa tape to try
and keep it all under control and exiting the vehicle through a wheel
arch. I was planning to plug it all into a standard power bank. If
you're determined to have a thin power bank slung underneath (or if
your kit comes with this) then you'll be able to keep wires all under
control in the underside hollow...
Plugging in the power bank produced a wonderfully lit-up camper.
Looks very homely, eh, on a cold and dark night?(!)
Another view, with the doors open, showing the lit-up interior...
The kit I used included a 'numberplate' light, though it doesn't actually light the plate much(!) Anyway, here's the rear view - note the black power bank off to the left, producing the power!
