I'm curious. I've bought a tiny tree for my truck and some led Christmas lights.. but I've not started decorating yet.

My other half suggested some light up decor on the grill.

Anyone else done it previously or doing it this year. I need ideas and pics.

I don't think I will. But always wondered how dot handles that stuff.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Me too. I'm not doing any lighting that's visible from the outside, unless it's a lighted wreath or something on the grill. The tree and other lights will be in the sleeper. Trying to figure out how to mount the lights in the sleeper. I got several sets of battery operated LED lights.. 6ft each. Bought some tiny suction cups with hooks but they're not sticking. I really don't want any sticky residue from tape and want something that will keep things in place for a month.

I use the command hooks in my truck. I use them to hang coats on back wall where there is some solid plastic. They make some small one that would easily support Xmas lights

Even the smallest command hooks would be overkill and probably the lights would be all over the place in a jumble after going down the road for a bit. The wires on the led lights are tiny.. about the same diameter as a paper clip. It's a shame u can't get the tiny suction cups with little metal hooks on them to stick to a flat plastic surface.

Susan, you might be able to use the green painters tape. Probably not ideal, but at least the tape would be a “festive” color.....

I put a huge wreath on the grille each year. This year I have a pink flamingo with a Santa hat on that I'll put in the middle of it. I run three stings of lights in the sleeper. I also have window clings of deer, snowflakes, etc. The wreath gets tossed each year because the ice and snow tears all the greenery off.
