  • Trailer Light Recommendation for a 1984 Skeeter Wrangler Bass Boat
  • Since you have a boat trailer you are going to need trailer lights that are submersible. For a light kit that would work well on your trailer that has LED lights I would recommend the part # TLL9RK. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you are looking for any other specific accessories for you trailer e-mail me back and I will help you pick them out.

  • How to Replace Bulbs of the Truck and Trailer Identification 3-Light Bar with White Base # MC77RB
  • The red lens cover of the # MC99RB has two clips on either side of it from the base of the assembly that hold the lens on. If you push those two clips out the lens can be pulled off and you can use a replacement bulb part # A194B to replace the burned out bulb.

  • LED Trailer Lights Not Working
  • Thanks for your recent purchase! 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...

  • Replacement Trailer Lens Cover for 4
  • The best way to determine which replacement tail light lens you will need is to try and locate a part number on the light housing. The SAE, Society of Automotive Engineers, number is not the part number of the light, it is just a number on the lens that means that lens has passed SAE guidelines. These numbers are usually on the lenses of most all trailer lights but do not give the information needed to locate a replacement. If you are unable to locate any markings on the light housing,...

  • Availability of Optronics LED GLOLight with Red Outer Ring and Amber LEDs in Center
  • Optronics does offer a GLOLight that's amber in color, part # STL101AB. The outer ring functions as running lights and the center LEDs function as turn signals. It's hard to tell by the photo, but the LEDs in the # STL101RB lamp you referred to are all red. The outer ring functions as the running light, and gets brighter when the brakes are applied. The center section lights up for the brake and turn signal functions. We don't offer a lamp of this type with yellow or amber LEDs. If...

  • How to Install License Plate on Opronics Stop, Turn and Taillight # RVST51
  • There is no one particular type of hardware that's intended for use. I'd remove the lens, which will allow you to access the hardware holding the lamp to the camper. You can remove the lamp from the camper, then attach the license plate to the tabs. You'd then re-install the whole thing back on the camper as one unit.

  • Do the Clearance Lights MC32RB and MC32AB have Gaskets
  • Both the # MC32RB and the # MC32AB do not have foam gaskets between the lens and the base. It is unlikely but possible that your current trailer lights had lenses that were once color and have now faded to being totally clear.

  • 2 and 4 Inch Diameter Trailer Lights, Grommets, and Harnesses
  • I will be happy to help and give you some options. For 2 inch diameter red lights we have several options: # MC53RB (use grommet # A54GB and harness # A46PB) # MCL50RB (use grommet # A54GB and harness # A46PB) # MCL55RB (use grommet # A54GB and harness # A46PB) # MCL55R1224B (use grommet # A54GB and harness # A46PB) All in one option # MCL-50CRK # MCL155RB (use grommet # A54GB and harness # A46PB) For 2 inch diameter amber lights we also have several options: # MC53AB (use...

  • Where Is Trailer Measured To Determine What Lights Are Required
  • Actually, the width of a trailer is determined by it's widest point. If the wheels are outside of the frame of the trailer then the width is measured for that trailer from outside of the fender to outside of the fender on the other side of the trailer. If the wheels are under the trailer frame then the measurement is taken at the frame width only. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to measure a trailer and the article has also got a complete breakdown of the lights...

  • Can the Bulb be Replaced in the Triangular Cab or Side Marker/Clearance Light # CB20AB
  • The bulb inside of the Triangular Cab or Side Marker/Clearance Light # CB20AB cannot be replaced. This is a sealed light. If you attempted to pry apart the two halves of the housing it would break the light. Sealed lights like this are designed to keep out water but the trade off is that also keep out you and me. A similar light, # CB22AB, does have a replaceable bulb. I have linked a video review of this light for you.

  • Troubleshooting Right Stop/Turn Circuit on Aluminum Trailer
  • It sounds like you have narrowed the problem down to being somewhere on the right stop/turn circuit (green wire) on the trailer. If you can use your circuit tester to test that circuit as close to the light assembly as possible to see if the light is getting voltage or not. The other possible problem is that the ground of the assembly isn't sufficient. Make sure that the vehicle side and trailer side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. The main connector grounds...

  • Can 4 LED Stop/Tail/Turn Lights be Installed on the Back of a Trailer
  • Yes, you can install more than one stop/tail/turn light per side on your trailer if you use LED lights. LED light draw much less power so having 4 LED assemblies total instead of 2 incandescent tail lights would still draw less power. You would just have to run jumper wires from the lower tail light wiring to the upper tail light wiring on each side. The matching left hand side light that goes with # STL8RB is # STL9RB.

  • Square Replacement Lens For Trailer Tail Light
  • The closest replacement lens we offer is the Wesbar tail light lens, part # 423335. This lens measures 4-5/8 x 4-5/8 inches and the mounting holes are 4-1/8 inches apart. If you want to look at the light assembly you need the replacement lens for there should be a manufacturer and/or number. If you want to send me the part number you find I may be able to find a replacement lens for you. If you are unable to find a lens, I have attached our product page for the tail lights we offer....

  • Is Load Resistor Needed to Add a LED Taillight # STL69RRXB to Existing Vehicle Taillights
  • Since you are adding the # STL69RRXB to the current taillights on your vehicle a load resistor would not be needed. A load resistor is only needed when you replace an incandescent bulb on a blinker circuit with just an LED. If you are adding an LED to a taillight circuit the necessary resistance is already on the circuit for the blinkers to function properly so the load resistor isn't needed.

  • Troubleshooting Brake and Turn Signals on my Boat Trailer
  • I recommend starting off by checking the connector on the tow vehicle. The vehicle connector should be free of dirt and corrosion. Next, using a circuit tester like the Quickee # 3808, test to see that each pin has power when the light or signal is activated. If the pins aren't functioning as they should, there is a problem with the connector or wiring. If all pins are functioning as they should, we know that the issue is with the trailer. Once again, check to make sure that the connector...

  • Looking for Trailer Clearance Light to Fit 2-5/8 Inch Rough Opening
  • I'd recommend the # MCL59RB for red or # MCL59AB for amber. The lamps are sealed and are waterproof, perfect for a snowmobile trailer. Each LED lamp is 2-1/2 inches in diameter. With the lamp, you'd use the # A57GB grommet, which requires a 2-25/32 inch hole, which is about .156 of an inch larger than the 2-5/8 inch hole you referenced. If your 2-5/8 inch measurement is right on the mark, it would take just a few moments with a Dremel or a round file to slightly enlarge the existing holes...

  • Recommended Clearance Light And Grommet For Older Snowmobile Trailer Rebuild
  • The clearance light I recommend for your snowmobile trailer is part # MCL57RB. This is a 3 diode 2-1/2 inch round light. It does require a rubber grommet for installation. The grommet to use for installing this light I recommend is part # A57GB. You may need to take a small round file and open the mounting hole you said measured about 2-5/8 inches but this should work well for your trailer. To connect the light to your trailer wiring I recommend using the Two Wire Pigtail, part...

  • License Plate Bracket Needed for Submersible LED Trailer Tail and License Light # STL37RB
  • Since the Aero Pro Submersible LED Trailer Tail and License Light, # STL37RB, mounts on 2 inch centers, one option for a license plate bracket would be part # BK31BB. Another option would be the Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket, # LP5SB. Both of the brackets mentioned have mounting holes that measure 2 inches on center so either one would work for you.

  • Troubleshooting New LED Left Turn Signal Light That Stays On
  • It is possible that your new LED-type left turn signal light could have an internal short or other damage that is causing the light to stay on rather than blink. It may also be that the wiring in the trailer was not connected correctly to the leads on the light. If the running light wire were connected to the turn signal lead this could explain why the light stays on rather than blinks. The light you referenced, Optronics # STL8RB, has three wire leads: a white ground wire, a brown running...

  • Using 4 to 5-Pole Trailer Connector Adapter # 20036 for Towing Boat w/ 2011 Toyota Highlander
  • The extra pin on your boat trailer's connector is most likely a reverse lock-out for your surge or hydraulic trailer coupler. The extra circuit is tied into the reverse light circuit of your vehicle. When the vehicle transmission is shifted into reverse, the reverse light circuit energizes and activates a solenoid in your coupler, which allows you to back the trailer without the brakes applying. We do indeed have an adapter that would work for you, part # 20036. The extra blue wire on...

  • Warranty and Candela of the Trailer Tail Light # STL70RB
  • I checked with Optronics and the Trailer Tail Light # STL70RB has a limited lifetime warranty that would cover manufacturer defects such as LEDs that stop working. This light is rated in candela. My contact at Optronics said that it has a candela output of 14 cd for the tail lights and 201 cd on the stop and turn lights. I attached a review video for more info for you to check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Cargo Trailer Interior Light that Stay On
  • You said the switch is getting 12 volts, but does the light still get 12 volts when the switch is on and the light has shut off? If so, then the problem may be the light assembly. You could try pulling the assembly off of the trailer and manually powering the light with some jumper cables from the positive and negative posts of a vehicle battery to see if the problem persists. If so, then the problem is the light. If not then its the wiring from the switch to the light.

  • What Pigtails Are Needed For Optronics Submersible LED Trailer Tail Light With Backup Lights
  • You are correct that you will need two pigtails for this light. I spoke with my contact at Optronics about the Trailer tail Light, part # STL211RB. One plug is to be used with a 3-wire pigtail like part # A47PB for the right angle plug or the straight 3-wire pigtail part # A45PB. The other plug will use a 2-wire pigtail like part # A45CB, which will be used for the back-up lights only.

  • Are Wiring Plug-Ins Needed for Optronics Trailer Tail Light # STL211RB

  • Will Optronics Submersible LED Trailer Tail Light # STL211RB Provide Bright Light Output
  • LED-type trailer lighting such as the Optronics Submersible LED Trailer Tail Light # STL211RB and # STL111RB will provide noticeably brighter light output than typical standard incandescent units. Between the two I'd go with # STL211RB for its higher diode count. Thanks to their superb efficiency - roughly 10 times that of incandescent bulbs - they will deliver the most light output from the available power. LEDs also last far longer and generate much less heat than standard bulbs. This...

  • Amber Trailer Blinker/Running Light Recommendation for Use on an Older Truck
  • We don't have exactly what you said you need, but the closest thing we have would be the Miro-Flex, Waterproof, Rectangular, LED # STL35AB. This is an LED amber light you could use that has dual intensity so that it can be used for a blinker and running lights. Only thing is that this is much bigger at 5-5/16" L x 3-7/16" W x 2-5/16 D. For a harness to plug into the light you would want # A47PB and then for a grommet part # A33GB.

  • Will the Optronics Magnetic Tow Lights Stay On a Vehicle That Travels on Rough Roads

  • Replacement Marker Lights for 1973 Cardinal Model 13 Camper
  • In order to replace the lights that are currently on your 1973 Cardinal Model 13 Camper, I recommend taking a quick measurement of each light. I have attached a link to our side marker lights for you. Once you click on the link, you can use the filters to find the correct size or one that is very similar in size. Another option would be to see if there are any identifying marks on your current light housings. If you are able to find a manufacturer name or model number, feel free to...
