by:

Ok, slickest thing, I love them, they stand up tall and when the tail lights disappear when backing down a boat ramp you can still see these to keep your trailer straight. GREAT PRODUCT AND GREAT SERVICE! Red in the rear and amber on the front half... Can't say enough about them.


Comments
Very well, cant believe I have been going with out them all these years. Used to take 3 people to trailer my boat, now I do it myself if I need to, cant speak highly enough about them. Highly recommend these for anyone thinking about guide ons.

Functional and will last a long time.
Could
have added water proof shrink wrapped wire connectors.


Comments
All the steel is not rusted yet. I've had to replace wiring and connectors, they rusted out in 1 year.

I see that you are still under the limited warranty. I have sent this information over to our warranty department for them to help you get this taken care of.

Nice product. Should work great to improve visibility when backing the trailer and loading the boat at night.



by:

It was easy to install and seems to be working and lasting,very well seems to be a good product


Comments
Still working great, love them
Michael - 04/29/2022

by:

Absolutely love this pontoon guide! Pontoons are a pain to load sometimes when windy but these made it so boom you glide right onto the trailer



by:

Working excellent with no problems. I would recommend this product.



by:

Great services, ship quick, they even give you a tracking link. You won’t go wrong using etrailer.



by:

Excellent product. Makes it so much easier to see the rear of the boat on the road, and easy backing at night, and it also makes it easy to see the trailer when loading the boat in the dark. Highly recommend.



by:

Great product. Added just what I needed to see the trailer on dark morning putting in to go hunting.


Comments
Excellent product. Works great.
Craig R - 12/24/2020

by:

I think these lights are a great idea. The poles I plan to use them on are a different size than the ones intended, so I had to make a spacer to make up the difference. My boat is much older with guide poles as part of the frame structure. Since I'm already in the process of redoing the lights anyway, I'll include these lights into the harness. My only suggestion would have been to include a turn signal/brake light into the lamp assembly. Thanks, and keep up the good work.



by:

I have not installed these lights as of yet. They fit the poles perfectly.I can't wait to connect the wiring and begin using them. They were delivered quickly and the directions seem to be simple, This company always provides great product and service!


Comments
The lights are working great! They were very easy to install and have really made a difference when trailering my boat st night.. These lights are nice and bright! Traveling down the road at night make my trailer easy to see.
Phillip - 03/13/2019


by:

Lights fit perfectly on PVC guides of my new trailer. Instructions were clear and wiring was easy. They look great day or night.


Comments
PVC Guides with LED lights work great one year later. Good value for money.
Mitchell F - 11/03/2020

by:

sorry i ever put these on my trailer. each year i have to purchase more because they go bad or a wire breaks. because they are on the end of a 4 foot pvc pole , they vibrate with road travel and it causes all kinds of problems.

thanks for the quick delivery. i have installed one to replace the broken one and will keep the other as a spare for the next time they need to be replaced.



by:

The LED lights for my boat trailer worked perfectly. The installation was easy. Everything fit without having to make any changes. Cailee was very helpful in the ordering process. Well done etrailer!



by:

When I ordered the original guide posts with lights, I really liked the lights on top of the posts for backing my trailer at night. However the light bulbs were continuously going bad from road vibrations. At that time the LED's weren't available. The new LED lights have totally solved this problem. The orange and red lights under the clear cover are bright enough to be seen for a good distance but not so bright that they blind you while backing up the trailer.



by:

The lights look like they will work well for my application. My biggest concern from reading other reviews is the road vibration and how it will affect the LED's. We will see in the future.



by:

The wires were difficult to fish through the bends on the guides but other than thats they seem well made and work well.



by:

I received them super quick. Dying to put them on but we'll have to wait till spring. But so far everything I've gotten has been great from here



by:

Great tool for backing on a ramp wit no lights this is my second set I use them on my first boat trailer also [thumbs up]



by:

Long screws should be stainless like the small screws. Work great!


Comments
Still fully functional but top of plastic showing signs on yellowing

They work Great !



by:

Great lights for guide post. Easy to install. Lights help with trailering and launching boat.



by:

Love it. Added more lights to my boat trailer. Makes backing my trailer in the water at night much easier and safer.



by:

These LED lights for the posts are excellent!! Makes for a very visible trailer on the road and much easier to guide your water craft onto at dusk or later. Great product!



by:

A great addition to the guide-on polls for increased safety. Easy to install with a little knowledge. Stylish lights that don't look cheap. Very prompt shipping and accurate fulfillment of order.

  • How Does the LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons Wire Up on a Boat Trailer
    The LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons, # CE27656A, will wire into the running light circuit of your boat trailer for power. They do have ground wires and will need to be grounded to a clean, corrosion free bare metal surface. Or if possible you can attach the grounds to the main trailer connector ground which is likely not going to be submerged on a boat trailer.

  • Is LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons Sold Only in Pairs
    Since we can only get the LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons # CE27656A in pairs if you needed just one you'd have to order the set of two with the part # CE27656A. This would give you a backup you could hold onto for later

  • Are Bulbs Replaceable on LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons
    The LED lights are sealed so they are not replaceable on the LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons # CE27656A. That said, LEDs are made to last for years or over a decade depending on your usage. And for a boat trailer that is only going to see moderate usage compared to LEDs in a home or on a vehicle, there is a far better chance of essentially any other part on a trailer needing to be replaced than these lights.

  • Light Kit Recommendation for CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27640
    Yes, if you wanted to install lights on the ends of the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27640 that you referenced you would also want the part # CE27656A. These will replace the end caps of the guide ons with ones that have LED lights.

  • Fit & Wiring Length of CE Smith LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons CE27656A
    The specs for the CE Smith LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons # CE27656A note these lights fit on 2-inch diameter posts, but this is incorrect. The lights have an inner diameter of 2-3/8-inches which allows them to fit fine on posts like # CE27640. I went to our warehouse and measured both items. The light inner diameter and the post outer diameter match up at 2-3/8-inches. I will request the correction to this error. Thank you for catching it. I also measured the length of the...

  • Wiring CE Smith Post-Style Guide-On LED's To Brake Light Circuit Versus Running Lights
    The LED lights on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27760 do not have separate wiring for only the red portion of the LED Cap Light # CE27656A. They are normally used to act as running lights to make maneuvering the trailer easier in low light conditions as well as providing an extra marker light for other vehicles on the road to better see the boat and trailer. If you would rather wire these lights to your brake lights circuits there would not be an issue with that. Do understand...

  • Can LED Bulbs be Replaced in the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights for Boat Trailers
    The LED lights on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27740 are sealed units so you cannot access the diodes inside.

  • What is the Outside Diameter of the PVC Tubes on Fulton Boat Guide # FGB1500100
    I spoke with my contact over at Fulton about the Fulton Boat Guide # FGB1500100. He said that the outer diameter of the PVC tubes is 2 inches. That means the CE Smith lights, # CE27656A, should fit just fine. And thanks, etrailer thinks that you're the best, too!

    The option we have for an LED light kit for post-style guide-ons for a boat trailer the LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons # CE27656A.

  • Replacement Caps for PVC Posts Used on CE Smith Post Style Boat Trailer Guide-Ons
    We do indeed offer replacement caps as part # CE11331-DRILLED. I'd recommend using a little PVC cement to glue the replacements in place, and you'll never need to replace them again. Or as an alternative, CE Smith offers a light kit, part # CE27656A what would replace your existing (as well as your missing) cap. If you fish at night this would be an excellent addition.

    I have two options that will allow you to install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27620 on your Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G. The first option would be to install the guide posts in front of the wheels just before the a-frame of the trailer comes together. You can see this location in the attached photo. The other option I have for you would be to relocate the taillights. Once the taillights are removed (2 bolts), you can then install the guide...

    Yes we do! For the PVC posts at the rear of your trailer I recommend taking a look at the CE Smith LED Light Kit # CE27656A.

The wiring coming from each light just needs to be connected to your trailer wiring and you are good to go. I have attached an image of these installed just so you can see how they look in the...

If you just want lights on the guide posts to make them easier to see then there are lights just for that, # CE27656A. They fit on 2 inch diameter posts.
