Surface-Mount Light

Surface-mount trailer lights install using a flange or bracket with mounting holes. These lights lay flat against the trailer surface and only require a small, often pre-existing hole, for wiring. Mounting hardware is used to secure the light to the trailer.

Raw Lumens vs. Effective Lumens

Lumens are used to measure the amount of usable light that is put out by a light source. Raw lumens represent the number of lumens that the manufacturer claims the LEDs are capable of producing. It does not include the light's drive method or the amount of light lost from the lens or reflector. Effective lumens take these factors into account and represent the number of lumens that are actually produced by the complete light assembly, not just the amount of light that the diodes are capable of producing. This light has a 370 raw lumen capacity and produces 342 effective lumens.

Video Transcript for Optronics RV Lighting - Utility Light - ILL71CBAWN Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number: ILL71CBAWN. This is the Optronics Opti-Bright LED Interior Strip Light with the awning. Low profile, low heat, white light. Is going to be great as an RV porch light for a covered porched area. The awning is going to direct the light downward at a 45 degree angle. So, you can see here on the back side it's a flat mount design and then that light would be distributed at a 45 degree angle coming out of the housing portion here.

Now this is going to be the light strip. It's going to have the nice chrome frame that's going to add a lot of style. That is a polished chrome design. This is a sealed, single piece housing, so it's going to be waterproof. It's going to feature the clear poly-carbonate lens; it's going to allow the bright light to be distributed evenly when it comes through the light output. Now this is the LED system.

It's going to feature the long lasting LEDs, those are going to be a great replacement for incandescent lights. LEDs are going to feature a multiple diode design. This on in particular is going to have 18 diodes. You don't have to worry about replacing any bulbs, you don't have to worry about brittle filaments, and they're going to be more efficient. Now, the flat base mounts on a flat surface.

It's got the nice gasket back here. It's got a lot of cushion to it so it's going to allow for a nice, tight seal during the installation. It's a two wire design, you're going to have your black and white wire. Black wire is for power, white wire's for ground. Taking a look at the over length, measuring from edge to edge, this is going to give us a measurement of 18 inches long. If we take a measurement of the width, it's going to give us a width of 2 and 1/8 of an inch and then the thickness is going to measure 1 and 1/16 of an inch.

The interior strip light length is going to measure 16 inches. Light output is at 342 lumens. This is designed to work for 12 volt systems and the power draw is 0.3 amps at 12.8 volts. Now you're going to mounting locations. One right here and one right here. If we take a measurement, the distance that we have between those two mounting slots, center on center, that's going to give us a measurement of 11 and 1/8 of an inch. The whole diameter is going to measure 3/16 of an inch. And Optronics is going to put a lifetime warranty on the LEDs. Now, an important note to mention is that this light is not recommended for use in fully exposed, outdoor locations. We're going to go and hook it up to our external power source that way you can see what it looks like with power running to it. We'll also be able to turn off our overhead lights that way you can see it in a low-light setting. So you can see here, this allows a lot of light to come through. It's a nice, clear lens with a bright white light. I'll hold it as if it's mounted and you can see how that's going to distribute the light at a 45 degree angle. Sends out a nice consistent beam there and you're going to again have 18 diodes, so plenty of LEDs to send out that signal that you're looking for. That's going to do it for our review of part number: ILL71CBAWN. This is the Optronics Opti-Bright LED Interior Strip Light. .

etrailer LED light strips are awesome! 463354


I am so happy with how fast they came. They match what was on the back of Horse trailer. Now I have plenty of light on each side of trailer. Love the look. 669890


Very bright and of good quality and des ign 696172

Perfect 448228


I'll give it 5 stars if it wasn't for the long time before shipping...very happy with product, installed four in my horse trailer and make a huge difference. Also installed 6-1/2" Oval LED Trailer Utility Light, Flange Mount, 10 Super Diode - Clear - BUL78CB in back of trailer for safe night horse loading/unloading. see before and after pics 410080

Great. Very happy
Pascal N - 07/24/2018



The light seems nice but we could not use it because it did not fit our vintage Airstream properly. Even with an extra support block, the light was too shallow to work with the door frame, which blocked most of the light. 405580


I installed these lights inverted on the awning of a food truck to illuminate the sign when the awning is deployed. Prepairing for abuse I used lots of clear silicone to bond the chrome light housing and base to the truck in addition to the mounting screws and then wiped clean. After three years of daily service and tree strikes these have performed flawlessly. Excellent illumination, very durable and clean good looks. 400296

4 years now and still working with 12 hours plus daily use on a food truck. These are on all time because who remembers to turn on the lights at dusk for the Sign? Very efficient low amps great illumination and Definitely commercial duty! TIP: Pump it completely full of GE Silicone to bomb proof it!

Love this light for over my motorhome door. Puts out great light and was easy to install. Very Classy. 338701

Tom, thank you for your review and your business. For outdoor usage, this light should be installed in sheltered/covered places where it will not be exposed to the full force of outside weather, such as under an awning or overhang.
-- Laura E - 02/11/2017



Product arrived as scheduled. Installation went smoothly. The light is very bright. Everything that we wanted. Would buy again - absolutely! 334343

We are still pleased with our purchase
Jim P - 01/23/2018



I used these as interior lights in my Snowmobile trailer. They work great, put off much more light than the old incandescent fixtures and don't get hot so I can leave them on while I am working in the trailer without melting the lenses. 323601


I'm extremely happy with these lights! Shipping time was the same great speed I've come to expect from etrailer, and the lights themselves are exactly what I wanted. I am glad I got 2 for my purpose, as it's now extremely bright! Next time I'm hooked up at night, I'll try to get a picture. 255841

1 year later, and although I dont use them as much as I wanted/expected, theyre still working, and looking, great! One of the best investments Ive made in a while.
Scott S - 06/02/2017



Products were shipped timely & all items were there: Great service !! 253735


This is definitely not an outdoor product. It would have to be totally sealed with silicone or something, the weather protection is pretty weak. Then again, most lights need that so who knows. It's a really good looking light. I'm using it above my bathroom vanity for closeup light. I've inverted it, so the 45degree angle faces up to make it indirect light. It's effective, although I have to wire a switch into the circuit since the original unit was self contained. Prices locally for an ugly one with no angle were $80 so this is perfect. 191327


Looks good from outside. Have not insta lled. 179396


Awesome lights very bright for the size thanks 162099


Everything as described. Very pleased with quality. Will recommend to others. Will do future business with etrailer. 162080
