Optronics Trailer Lights RVST50 Review

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights RVST50 Review

Today we are going to review Part Number RVST50. This is the Optronics Camping Travel Trailer Stop Turn and Tail Light. This is a multi-function stop turn and tail light on a white mounting bracket. This is a molded plastic housing with a durable lens which will provide all weather protection against corrosion. This light does feature a replaceable snap on lens and an easy to replace bulb. The Bulb Number would be a 2057.

The mounting surface or the mounting bracket on the back has four mounting holes, one in each corner and the distance between those holes is seven inches and this way would be 3 1/8 inches. It does have a three-wire design which is the one wide wire for the ground and then the two power lead wires for the tail lights and the other one is for the stop and turn signal. This tail light is weather and corrosion resistant. I am going to give you a few measurements on this light; the overall length of the light will be 8 5/8 inches. The width will be 4 5/8 and the depth of the light will be 2 1/16 inches.

Now, what Im going to do is hook up a power supply to the light to give you an idea of the brightness of the light. That would be the tail light. That would be the stop and turn brightness. Now what I am going to do is turn out the overhead light to give you an idea what the brightness of the light would be in the dark. So again, this is the brightness of the tail light and then when we apply the stop or the turn signal that would be the brightness there.

That should do it for Part Number RVST50.

The product was great looked great and should be a direct replacement for what was on the trailer originally. One word of caution don't cheap out on the shipping. I got the cheapest shipping and the way it worked is UPS would deliver it to the closest USPS post office then USPS would take over and deliver to my house. Well I have a small rural post office that's only open 4 hours a day and UPS tried to get it to my post office twice but on both occasions my post office was closed, I call UPS and was told if the third attempt failed that I would have to drive to the nearest UPS distribution center an hour away to pick up my package or it would be sent back. Well the 3rd attempt UPS managed to get to my post office before they closed, but just barely. Everything about the product I got from etrailer was excellent. The Shipping companies seem to have had a steady decline in their customer service. 107615

Exactly what we need for our 1989 Coleman Chesapeake pop-up camper. I haven't installed these yet because I received no installation instructions. Rich 80230

What can I say... these lights are "replacements" and not the OEM lights, but they are higher quality and better looking than the originals. Etrailer shipped them right out... they were shipped out the day I ordered them and on my doorstep 2 days later. When I took the originals off, I noticed they were in place by rivets, and I was nervous about drilling them out of my ABS trailer. However, it was no problem at all, and I'm so glad I took on this project. I replaced 11 lights and both brake lights, and it has given my 1996 trailer a much needed facelift. The old lights were tired, and the bases were black. The new lights have white bases and they they are MUCH brighter and more vibrant. The lenses fit snug. Oh, and the price was incredible. Great transaction. 78423

After working on the old lights on my camper numerous times just prior to leaving on a trip and while traveling, I decided it was time to replace all of the lights. I purchased two new tail/brake lights, and four new side markers. The total price including shipping was just over $28 (I should have done this a long time ago). The lights arrived within 3 days of being ordered, and I was able to install them fairly quickly. I am so happy that I now have all six lights working perfectly, and shouldn't have to worry about them for a long time. 16914

I ordered replacement taillights for my camper trailer after mine were smashed by careless children playing a game that involved bouncing a heavy ball off the trailer wall. This is the second time I have ordered from etrailer.com and will continue to do so for all my trailer part needs. I give customer service an A+, ease of ordering and the prices also get an A+. The package arrived safe and secure two days before I expected it. The lights I received were an exact match to the ones broken on my trailer. Way to go etrailer.com! 126456

This product is exactly as presented. I installed this product on my Flagstaff Pop-up camper and it worked perfectly. The mounting holes and wire colors were an axact patch to replace the original equipment. The price was about 50% of the originals and is a superior product in my opinion. I removed the cover lens and applied a coat of chrome metallic paint to the lamp mounting surface and this gave a reflective and produced a brighter glow. This is a small improvement to a near perfect product. 51355

Each product was exactly what I needed and as research will show, they have the best prices on the web. Couple that with free shipping and it's impossible to not recommend this company to all.

Installed today on my Jayco popup. I used the old harness instead of replacing all the wiring, then replaced the Jayco 6 prong with a four prong plug. The lights look really good, and would be hard pressed to tell they are not OEM. 137001

"Filled the Bill" Simple, but effective design; installed easily. This was a replacement for an earlier-design Optronics model, to cosmetically match the license plate holder version (left side) I had to replace. The only precaution I would recommend is to not be as ham-fisted as I was, and break off a plastic tab of the license plate holder version like I did on the original one, while trying to get the temporary tags off. 4694

Great service. Installed the new lamps in a couple of hours with few issues. Only concern I have is with what appear to be rather fragile looking "clips" that hold the red lens cap onto the white body. My previous experience with this design (different product) has resulted in broken clips, so I filed the tabs on the "clips" down a bit to hopefully make the removal of the lens easier. 138429

Bought these to replace broken lights on my 95 Coleman Roanoke. Very well built, and easy to install. They are not a direct replacement, as the mounting holes did not line up. Wasn't too hard to make new holes since i had to drill out the mounting rivets anyway. Great product, and fast shipping. Will use etrailer again. 138843

  • How to Find a Replacement Lens for a 1990 Coleman Newport Pop Up Trailer Tail Light
  • To identify which taillight lens will match your housing you will need to look at the taillight itself and get a model number from it or look at the lens on the opposite side of the trailer to obtain a model number from it. The camper model really does not help much for the taillights. When ordering, remember that the left side may be different from the right side, as left usually has a clear bottom lens for license plate illumination.

  • Need Replacement Tail Light Lens for Reflect-O-Lite 310-350 on 1968 Serro Scotty Trailer
  • 1968 Serro Scotty trailers came in various sizes and models (the Gaucho in 13- and 15-foot versions; the Highlander and the Sportsman). Based on the photos I found, both round and rectangular light assemblies were used, but since you reference the Optronics rectangular trailer lights # RVST50 and # RVST51 I take it yours are this shape. I contacted Serro Scotty to try to locate either an exact replacement lens or details about the appropriate size replacement, but they were not able...

  • How to Determine If The Optronics Trailer Light, # RVST50, Will Fit A 2002 Coleman Fleetwood Utah
  • The Optronics Trailer Light, # RVST50, is an exact replacement for a Wesbar # 3621 and a Peterson # 2533W lights. I do not have a list that will tell me if this light will fit your Coleman trailer. You will need to look on the light you have now and see if there is a part number that might match the Wesbar or Peterson number. If you can give me the serial/model number and manufacturer of your existing light assembly, I can find if there is an exact replacement. The part I have...

  • Trailer Turn Signals Do Not Work when Running Lights are On
  • This sounds like a ground issue. Ground problems normally show up when there is more draw on a system such as when you have the running lights on and then use another function like a turn signal or brake light. Make sure that the vehicle side and trailer side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. The main connector grounds should be attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. The light grounds should also be attached to clean and corrosion free bare...

  • Replacement Tail Lights for a 1977 Shasta 1600 Trailer
  • Based on your picture it looks like the left side is # RVST56 and the right side would be # RVST55. These lights are 8-5/8 inches across, 6-5/16 inches tall, and 2-1/16 inches deep. The housing looks different though so if the lights I mentioned above have different dimensions then your current lights then you would want to replace the bases as well with 2 of # RV50BK. And that should be all you need. Just for reference on the wiring, since you can't always go by wire color: Red...

  • How Do Trailer Lights Ground and Wire Up
  • If the second wire is white it most likely is a ground wire and would just need to be run to a clean, metal surface. However, in some situations the light will ground through the mounting bolts of the light assembly. So if the light assembly is a stop/turn and tail assembly and there are only two wires the assembly grounds through the mounting hardware and the two wires are for the stop/turn and tail light circuits. If the light assembly only has a single intensity bulb and there...

  • How to Wire Replacement Trailer Tail Light # RVST51 on 2005 Aliner Camper with 4-Wire Hookup
  • My research of Aliner campers indicates their tail light assemblies appear to be flush-mount rectangular units roughly 4-inches tall x 8-inches wide. We offer a flush-mount light from Optronics, part # RVST50, that is similar to the bracket-mount unit you referenced, part # RVST51. Both lights have a 3-wire hookup, the same dimensions at 8-5/8 long x 4-5/8 wide x 2-1/16 deep, both are weather and corrosion resistant and both have replaceable bulbs and lenses. The wiring arrangement...

  • What are the Wire Functions on the Camping Travel Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light # RVST50
  • Any time you are doing anything with the wiring on a trailer you will want to make sure you use a circuit tester like # 3808 to determine the functions of the wire because you can rarely go by color. On the trailer wiring harnesses we sell, the brown wire is used from running lights. If it is a 4-wire harness, the wire is will run to one side and then a jumper wire will tap into the wire and T-off over to the other side. On light # RVST50, the running light wire attaches to the green...

  • What are the Wiring Function on Optronics Trailer Tail Light # RVST50
  • Use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to test the wires on the trailer to determine function. The Optronics trailer light # RVST50 has a white ground wire, a green running light wire, and the black wire is for brake and turn signals which are combined on a single circuit. I have included a link to a video review of this light for you.

  • Troubleshooting Wiring Problem on 1977 Travel Trailer
  • The first thing you'll want to do is get the trailer connector on the truck operational again. The procedure for this will depend largely on the year, make and model of the truck. If the truck is newer, it would likely have a factory tow package that uses relays to control and fuses to protect the towing circuits. When you checked the function of the connector on the truck, are all the features dead (right turn/brake, left turn/brake and running light) or are some working? If some are...

  • LED Clearance Light Recommendation for a Trailer that Wont Illuminate all of the Clearance Lights
  • It sounds like you are overdrawing your running light circuit and you do not have the amperage to illuminate all of the running lights at the same time. You are probably on the verge of blowing a fuse on your tow vehicle so I would recommend you stop now and address the problem before you attempt to tow with this setup. The best recommendation I can give you would be to convert your clearance lights to LEDs since they draw a fraction of what an incandescent bulb does so it should fix...

  • Wiring Optronics Camping Travel Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light # RVST50
  • A 3-wire light fixture such as the Optronics Camping Travel Trailer Light # RVST50 uses one wire for the ground connection (in this case the white wire) and two wires to deliver signal to the running light bulb (the green wire) and to the stop/turn bulb (the black wire). If your old light used a wired ground like the Optronics light, rather than a mounting stud ground, then one of those wires was ground. Since there is no guarantee of what color wire carries a particular function on...

  • New Trailer Lights have 3 Wires but Old Trailer Lights have 4 Wires
  • You will need to determine what the functions of the wires are on the existing lights using a circuit tester like # 3808. Have the trailer connected to a vehicle and have someone run through the light functions to determine what the wire functions are. Trailer light # RVST50 has a white ground wire, green for running lights, and black for brake lights and turn signals. On your trailer wiring, the white is probably the ground if it was attached to the frame. The brown wire is most likely...

  • Replacement Tail Light Assembly for 1988 Coleman Chesapeake Pop-Up
  • The Optronics # RVST55 would be a good replacement taillight, like your existing lamp it is a 4 wire/ 2 bulb taillight. If you went with a single bulb, you would lose the reverse light function. If you would prefer a lamp that only provided stop/turn/running light functions, the Optronics # RVST50 would be a good choice. The lamp uses three wires, white for ground, green for running light and black for turn/stop light. Either Optronics lamp would be a pretty close replacement for...

  • Running Lights Not Working on 1964 Aloha Travel Trailer
  • You certainly should be able to access the running lamp circuit behind each of the lamps. Finding the other end to tie into the running lamp circuit from the trailer connector might be a challenge. If need be, you might just run a new running lamp circuit from the trailer connector to feed the running lamps. I have linked you to our Trailer Wiring FAQ article, which you might find helpful.

  • Running Lights Not Working on an H & H Trailer with 5 Wire Trailer Connector
  • First, use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to test the brown wire to make sure it is functioning properly at the vehicle side connector. If not then you will need to troubleshoot the vehicle. On light # RVST50 the green wire is the running light circuit and the black wire is brake light/turn signal. Make sure the main trailer connecter is grounded to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface. Do the same for the lights. If the trailer has an aluminum frame, grounding the...

  • Troubleshooting Blinker Lights on 1977 Road Ranger Camper
  • You should only have one wire going to the turn/stop signal connection and one wire going to the taillight connection on each side of the trailer. Left side turn/stop wire is yellow, Right side turn/stop wire is green, taillight wire is brown. White wires should be grounded securely to a clean metal surface. Make sure the trailer and truck grounds are good too. If the problem is still there check the connector from the vehicle. One wire broken or shorted can cause many...

  • Why Will Fuse Blow When Brakes or Turn Signal is Applied on 2008 Ford F-250 Towing a Trailer
  • It sounds as if you have a ground connection issue, or a short on the tail light circuit on the trailer. Most likely it is a bad ground that will need to be found. The bad ground shows up when the tail lights are turned on and the brake or blinker is used because that is when the highest amount of amperage draw is placed on the wiring. I would start with the trailer connector on the truck and trailer. Open them up and make sure there is no white or green corrosion causing an issue inside...

  • Trailer Lights Go Out When Running Lights are On and Brakes Applied
  • The reason this is occurring at night and not during the day is because during the day you are not using the running lights. There are a couple of possibilities here. First, check the main trailer connector grounds on the vehicle and trailer and make sure they are attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. Also do the same for the tail lights on the trailer. A bad ground can cause this issue. Ground problems show up when there is more load on a system. When the running...

  • Running Lights Not Working But All Other Lights Are on Optronics Trailer Tail Light # RVST50
  • Since you have already looked at the ground wire for tail light # RVST50 then it is probably not an issue with this ground. The wiring on this light should be as follows: White wire: ground Green wire: tail light Black wire: stop and turn light Disconnect the trailer and use a circuit tester like # 3808 to test the 4-Way on the vehicle. If the running light circuit is working there then you know the issue is on the trailer. If it is not working, then you know there is a problem...
