Removable LED lights provide signal lights for your towed car without you having to tap into the car's wiring or run wires under the car. Antenna plugs into your RV's 4-way or 7-way connector and sends a signal to the magnetic lights.

Wireless tow lights install on your vehicle without the hassle of wiring.

These wireless, removable tow lights make it easy to add running lights, brake lights, and turn signals to your towed car or trailer. With this setup, you won't need to tap into existing wiring for installation. With other magnetic tow lights, you have to run cords from the lights to the front of the towed car or trailer - and then run an additional cord to connect to your tow vehicle - every time you need to tow. These tow lights work wirelessly to eliminate that hassle. And the wireless design also allows you to move the lights from one vehicle or trailer to another in minutes.

Foil covers magnet to protect your trailer or towed vehicle's paint.

The lights attach directly to almost any metal surface with the built-in heavy-duty, foil-covered magnets, which won't damage your vehicle's paint. And the handy on/off switch lets you use the lights only when you need them, saving battery power.

7-Way, RV-style connector7-Way connector plugged in.

Setup is simple. The included trailer connector has a 7-way plug on one end and a 4-way plug on the other end for versatile use. Plug the connector into the 4-way flat or the 7-way, RV-style port on your RV or tow vehicle. A built-in, detachable antenna on the connector bends and rotates so you can adjust it to get the optimal signal. Turn the switch on each light to "on," and attach the tow lights to the back of your towed car or trailer, as far apart as is practical. There are no wires connecting the lights to each other, so you don't have to worry about securing any excess wiring.

Each light conveniently detaches from its base.

Each light detaches from its base so you can easily access the battery compartment. Six AAA batteries (not included) power each light.

Magnets not that strong. Had to build alternative way to hold lights in place. We thought there would be more steel on the rear of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler that we could attach the magnetic lights to. I'm planning to build a 2 inch receiver mounted bracket that will allow placement and attachment of the lights.

I do have an alternate part that helps to provide a magnetic base to attach the lights to. It is part # 3378895404

We purchased the wireless Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights as a temporary solution while waiting for the Trailermate wiring that will use the cars taillights. For the price, I expected a better light.

- NV-5164

Haven't yet got the dozen AA batteries the lights need, but they appear to be very well made, big and bright. The transmitter needs a better way to mount it, but a bungee cord served.

- NV-5164

So far these wireless trailer lights have performed perfectly. No issues and I couldn't be happier. Set up was easy.

- NV-5164

Works great on a 36’ trailer that was towed from NC - OH. The lights was used on an old Spartan house trailer that is going to be restored.

- NV-5164

When I ordered the item it said it would arrive a specific time. Which is why I ordered it prior to our trip. But it arrived 2 days after we left on our trip. I have not been home yet to see if they will even work.

I was told my lights were not in yet so I decided to split my order after waiting a few days. The lights ended up coming at the same time as the rest of the product. The package is open, taped. I have not tested them yet. I don’t feel as though I should get an open package.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

The only significant steel was the rear tow hooks on the back of the Gladiator. The plastic buttons on the back had to be removed to let the magnets get a hold. Tie down straps had to used to safely secure the lights. Otherwise, works nicely without having to splice into the vehicle wiring

Uses a lot of batteries, and even with fresh batteries, the lights are pretty dim and hard to see

Pleasure doing business. Item as described. Exactly what I was looking for.

- NV-5164

Novel idea, and I had high hopes. But I have some things to point out that aren't great. The wireless can be spotty, so be sure to test and can reset it by un/replugging the 7 pin transmitter. The magnets are not that strong, so I had to zip tie them to the back of the trailer I was using.

Purchase the Pilot magnetic tow lights with wireless controller. worked very well. I was worried about whether the magnetic would hold up under wind when traveling since I could not find any information on wind test. I put a zip tie on each of the lights so I would not lose them in case they didn't stay on. But they did over 800 miles. I still plan on using zip ties just to be sure. Overall, I would give the lights a thumbs up.

8 moths later, have the stood the test of time?thanks.

Works perfect, will add a more secure clamp to hold lights

- NV-5164

Customers service,advice and delivery have always when great from these folks,!

- NV-5164

After buying many, many sets of the wired tow lights for my portable sign business and having to constantly untangle and repair the wires, I decided to spend the extra $ and get something good. These lights work great, just remember to turn off the switches on the lights after use as they run on batteries. I would have paid extra for a case as they are very nice lights and I want to keep them in something safe after use. Great product highly recommend.

I had previously given these a 5 star and I have had these lights less than a year now and the magnet did not hold the lights to the trailer and I just got done picking up the pieces off the highway. Very disappointed with these lights and will not replace them with a wireless system.
-- comment by: judy w - 05/03/2015

Not good! I hit a bump and for some reason 1 of the lights separated from the base where the battery compartment is and the light fell off and was run over by multiple cars. I have 30 pieces. They worked good up to this point and I am not sure why it separated it was secure.
Judy W - 08/29/2015

Thanks for the follow up and information Judy. I see one of our customer service representatives has been in contact with you and with the manufacturer about the warranty of these lights. If you have any further questions please feel free to let us know.

-- Etrailer Expert Rachael H - 8/31/2015

They quit working after about the third time I used them tried everything. Still don’t work

The first thing I would check would be the 6 AAA batteries to make sure they all have charge. I spoke to my contact with the manufacturer and the batteries will need replaced after about 12 hours of usage. The next thing I would check would be for corrosion on the plugs, and I would maybe add some grease for extra protection. Lastly, though not common, is some sort of interference with another wireless transmission like the Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System # RM-9400
Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional
. Also note, this item has a 1 year warranty.

I tow a Denali behind my coach and use an Airforce One braking system which requires me to disconnect the Denali battery while towing. Therefore I needed lights for the back of the Denali. I made mounts which insert into the rear pockets in the pickup bed. Tail lights and break lights work well, however the left turn signal blinks only once when needed. The right turn signal works good.

Used these on our tow jeep. We did use long zip ties to secure them to the bumper and they worked great. Good value for the price!

We have used the lights a couple times since purchasing them. they seem to work great. when we put the Jeep into storage, we always remove the batteries and remove the lights from the mounting plates for storage.

The Pilot magnetic tow lights - wireless arrived with expedited shipping as expected . The plugged the lights into my RV to test them. They worked flawlessly. I did attach them to my Jeep Wrangler and was very concerned with the magnet holding them to the metal of the Jeep. The slightest bump in the road would knock them off the body. The magnet is not very strong. Since I have taillight guards on my Jeep. I had to secure them to the body with two large zip ties. Also one of the plastic latches that hold the light assembly to the light bracket fell off for some reason. If the holding magnet was a lot stronger, I would rate these lights higher. The convenience and price are great.

The wireless tow lights are great & easy to use & the magnets are stronger than the wind at 70mph but you need a metal surface to mount them & with so much plastic on vehicles it is sometimes hard to find a place to mount them, another concern is security of the lights, there isn't an easy way to lock them down from someone removing them from the towed vehicle.

We are very happy with the product. It was just what they said it was and worked just the way they said it would work. Being seniors a little better instructions would have helped. etrailer delivered when they said they would and sent E-mails letting us know that they received our order and let us when it was shipped.

We are still using it and couldnt be happier with it. It is so easy to use.

These lights work good as tail and brake lights but have a problem with blinking on and off. They may blink with the turn 5 times in a row and then ignore the next 20 pulses. Or they ignore all turn signal pulses. They don't work as emergency lights very well at all. They pick up about one of every 10 on/off pulses with the left working a little better than the right. The package states they will recieve at over 100 feet but they only work up to 30 feet. I tried changing the batteries, using a different tow vehicle, and moving the transmitter with no improvement.

- NV-5164
