Well if you are in a sparsely populated campground or location it wont bother the neighbors.. but I would think it would also be easy to find you in that case. If you are in the typical campground with neighbors then the lights on late at night are annoying.. the flasher would make it even more so.
So while there might be times when it's handy to have the lights on (or even flashing if stopped on the breakdown lane on the highway), my experience has been at what should be quiet and peaceful campgrounds where people want to have colored lights on most, or all of the night, sometimes along with outside televisions, etc..
BTW, I put blackout curtains in my camper.. not because I ever wanted to block out the morning sun, but because of the other RVs with lights on at night.
