Trunk Light

I like keeping my trunk open at shows. What is the best way of dealing with the trunk light?

you can just leave it on...it's not gonna run down the battery...but yes, the cover just pops off...might not want to touch the bulb though...they get HOT.

Install a switch. Sounds like that might be a little on the technical side for the OP, but it's worth 2-3 hp.

I could have sworn the trunk light goes out after a while...battery anti-rundown feature. I could be wrong, as my memory fades....
