You're fine with backing down with headlights on as long as you're at Squaw Creek...

The best way to handle that is just back down at an angle covering all lanes and unstrap your boat at the bottom of the ramp. Also don't forget to leave the radio blaring to your favorite rap song and turn the flashers on.

Just be safe and turn all lights off , Starting Dec 01 2018 @ Squaw Creek : All lights must be turned off once going down the Hill before the ramps .

On all of my Ford trucks (05-14) there has been a dial to the left of the steering wheel that controls the headlights... Vertical position is off, then parking lights, on, and auto. Turn to the parking light position

Daytime running lights is what it sounds like your talking about?

Theres nothing to be done if its your daytime lights. they arent very bright and I wouldnt sweat it.

Some have a “DRL” fuse that can be pulled. The headlights continue to work as a normal setup would work, it just disabled the lower voltage daytime running light feature.
