Rear of cab reflectors

Well, the obvious answer would be, "Have you ever seen them on a motorhome?"  However, David Dixon is our resident expert on lighting requirements, and he went around the National HDT rally a year or two ago, and found nearly none of the higher end coaches, whether MH or fifth wheel, complied.  I'm leaving mine in place.

There is a requirement for reflective tape up high on the back of the sleeper.

The tape should already be in place on your truck.

The last owner (commercial driver) put them on wrong plus they were plastic and the adheasive tape has failed. I just replaced them with 1" DOT reflective tape.

Not trying to adopt a “holier than thou” attitude, but why would we remove or not replace anything that makes us more visible to other drivers under poor visible conditions?  As Rickeieio said, David Dixon looked over my truck and made several recommendations to increase visibility and safety.

A few years ago, we were travelling in a heavy rain.  Mid day, so light wasn't the issue.  The spray from tires caused a "fog" layer above the pavement 3 or 4 feet high.  Taillights were very hard to see, even on vehicles such as trucks and trailers.  We decided right then to add high mount tail lights to the trailer.  Being seen is good.
