[DML] Re: How long woud batter last with lights...

Your battery should have an amp/hour rating.  I think mine is 48 
amp/hrs.  This means you can power a load of 48 amps for 1 hour or a 
1 amp load for 48 hours....etc.

I think our parking lights use about 30 watts.  Divide the wattage by 
the voltage to get the current.  Result = 2.5 amps.

Divide the battery rating by the load current to get the hours.   
Result = 19.2 hours
