Optronics MCL17 Series Miro-Flex LED Marker Clearance Light with Chrome Bezel Dimensions

Sonically Sealed, Waterproof Trailer Light

The waterproof construction of this light makes it ideal for use on trailers that may be submerged, like a boat trailer. The housing and lens are sonically sealed together to create a single unit, which means that water will not get into the light and damage the diodes or circuit board.


P2-Rated Lights

Diagram of light spread for P2 rated light

A P2-rated light produces a 45-degree angle of light to either side of its centerline for a total of 90 degrees of coverage. This beam pattern can be seen straight on, but it cannot be seen clearly from the side. So this type of light can be used as either a side marker light or a clearance light, but it cannot function as both. If you need both functions, then you must install 2 separate lights on your trailer - one as a front or rear clearance light and one as a side marker light.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights - Clearance Lights - MCL17RB Review

Today we are going to show you Optronics Sealed Miro Flex Mini Star LED Side Marker Light part number MCL17RB. The lens is sealed and waterproofed against the housing of this light. Inside are 3 red LEDs that draw a total of .047 amps at 12.8 volts. The LEDs themselves are covered by a lifetime warranty from Optronics. The light also has a snap on plastic chrome cover. The light utilizes a 2 wire design meaning you have one wire lead for ground and the other for power. Now we are going to hook the light up to a power supply so you can see how it looks. Connect one of the wire leads to our ground and the other to power. Hold the cover in place. Next we will turn off the overhead lights so you can see how bright the light is. And that does it for Optronics Sealed Miro Flex Mini Star LED Side Marker Light part number MCL17RB.

These side markers (both red and amber LED) are great for my 12' trailer. They have 3 LEDs (you can also get 4), and their size is perfect for a small trailer. The LED's are really bright, not only at night, but also during the day, so they are easily seen. I especially like the fact that they are sealed, so there should be no water intrusion problems in the future. I have included a few pictures, the first showing the round LED brake/turn/running/reverse lights (that I had purchased earlier from etrailer) with the red side marker mounted vertically on the outside. The second shows a side view of the red side marker light, and the 3rd picture shows the side marker mounted to a small piece of 1" X 1" x 1/8" aluminum angle which I painted black to match the mounting frame of the round LED lights. I mounted the LED side marker to one leg of the aluminum angle, then mounted the other leg with 1" standoffs to two holes already present on the black mounting frame of the round LED light. Although all the lights are sealed against water intrusion, I decided to mount them on each side of the trailer at the top of 2 PVC pipes, about 36" long each, where the lights would not be exposed to immersing in water when launching/retrieving a boat. 412668

After a year, the lights are still bright as ever. One of them even survived being drug down the highway for 100 yards when the PVC pole it was mounted to came out of its holding fixture!!

This fixture was the exact replacement for my 2011 Trailmanor 2720 trailer. The manufacturer had moved to a more modern looking fixture. I was even able to use the old chrome piece from the old fixture to keep a uniform age look. I installed a wireless rearview camera and needed a new fixture and its longer wires to make everything work. May look a little strange, but it works like a charm. E-Trailer service was excellent as usual. 666854

It might be possible to give 5 stars but after purchasing all the products about a year ago, my little fiberglass trailer is not even close to being ready. All the lighting is hooked up and they all seem to work, so that's a good thing. The other products that I purchased have not been installed yet. I would like to mention how pleased I am with e-trailer videos showing everyone how their products look and how they're used. Keep it up, I am a happy customer. Vic 366254

These bright and waterproof little lights are wonderful. They draw only .5 watts (ie so little they will probably not make a difference to any auto, RV etc lighting circuit). I used them to enhance the dim stop and turn signal on my RV. The plastic lens were fogged and the voltage kind of low (a 40' RV has a lot of voltage drops) but these little LEDs shine bright and were a LOT cheaper than trying to replace the existing fixtures. I just wired them in parallel with the existing light bulb. So now I have a bright stop light and a built-in spare (the existing bulb could burn out and the LED will keep working). The photo shows how I did it 227001

These lights are of very good quality and are really bright. I use them on an early 70's Bronco for the front turn signals. Day or night, they are distinct and unique and best of all, . Definitely visibly on during the night AND the day (this can be seen in the photo taken on a Snow day, bright, while half way out of my garage). Great price for a great product 112392

These lights were an exact replacement for the original incandescent lights in my car trailer. They are very bright, and traffic behind me actually pays attention when I turn my signal on now. They are a much needed improvement over stock. Juanita was also very helpful in verifying that I had the right connector for them. Very prompt shipping too, as I had them in 3 days after I ordered them. 157319

These are perfect for my hard used-utility trailer. I haul a huge amount of firewood, gravel, top soil, lawn mowers, and rocks and the old tail light bulbs were constantly burning out. The new LED lights were super- easy to install, fit perfectly, and are much brighter than the old. I wish I would have installed these lights years ago. Highly recommended! 569978

Review from a similar Optronics Miro-Flex in Trailer Lights


Etrailer STL22ab: Another great product from Optronics through ETRAILER.COM The technology of the Miro-Flex is an amazing upgrade from the previous generation of LED lights. Even in the dark garage, not connected to any power source, I set this light, and a 1st generation 6inch LED light on the table. Turned off the lights and shined a flashlight over both of them. The STL22ab reflected light from all of the 16 individually prisms. It was amazing, the other LED did not. This light is BRIGHT, solid construction and arrived from ETRAILER.COM quickly packaged in a box to protect it. Will be ordering 4 RED ones to replace my other older LEDs. Great BUY! 301662

Review from a similar Optronics Miro-Flex in Trailer Lights


My son-in-law has been using my utility trailer a LOT - and he's been having LOTS of problems! First one of the springs snapped; we found replacements & had it back up & running the same day. Then he had a blowout; he found 2 new tires & had it back hauling the next day. Then he asked if he could install the new lights I bought from etrailer; I said yes, so he & my other son-in-law installed the new wiring & lights for me. He brought it back & I asked him to test them for me. I asked that he first turn on the parking lights, so he hopped up in the truck & turned them on. I asked him to take his foot off the brake because they were so bright, I thought I was seeing brake lights - but he jumped out & told me he wasn't pushing on the brakes! Just the parking lights alone were brighter than the old lights. When he finally did show me the stop/turn signals, I couldn't believe how bright they were! Believe me - you NEED these trailer lights! They are the best, by far! 466009

Super fast shipping! Ordered on Saturday with etrailer's free shipping option and received my order on Tuesday. Thanks! The lights appear to be of high quality. Comes with all necessary hardware, but I used butt connectors instead of the supplied come shaped connectors. Lights are MUCH brighter than the halogen models they replaced; both tail and brake/turn. You could barely see the old taillights in the day time, these are far superior! 316069

I got these because the original ones were a single bulb theses are much brighter. I also got a 7pole to 4 pole adapter my old one got squashed I went to 5 different places and no one had it checked on etrailer and there it was I ordered it and it was in my hands in less than a week as you see I taped it together so I never have to search for it. one other thing I got was a chrome led license plate light I had replaced mine with a original plate light from the trailer company twice and they keep breaking I think it was because they were black and you couldn't see it with this one being chrome it sticks out and being led it is much brighter and it cost less than the original one 269943

  • Replacement Trailer Clearance Lights for GloBrite 122r/122y
  • The globrite 122 in red or yellow/amber are 3.75 inches by 1.70 inches from what I can find online. We do not have a direct replacement, however the closest dimension we have to replace them is 3-1/2 by 1 inch. I recommend the # MC68RB and # MC68AB. If you want to go larger, then I recommend the 4x 1-1/2 inch LED # MCL17RB and # MCL17AB.

  • Using a Trailer Tail Light on a Cargo Carrier
  • A clearance light like # MCL17RB will not provide you the separate running, brake, and turn functions. It will stay on all the time your running lights are on. Another option instead is to use a strip light like # STL59RB. It will provide all of the functions however if you just install one it will flash regardless of which turn signal you're using. You can install two, one on each side of the cargo carrier if you'd like. You'll also need to install a 4-way connector on the carrier...

We typically recommend using a battery charger like the # CTEK56158 CTEK Universal Battery Charger to recharge a depleted battery.

  • How To Charge Trailer Battery On Dump Trailer Using The 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • You can provide a maintenance charge to the trailer mounted battery on your trailer via the 7-Way trailer connector's 12 volt circuit. But the wiring in that circuit is too small to handle the amount of amperage needed to charge up the battery. It is also possible that the alternator on the truck is not strong enough to push back that much amperage even with a larger wire gauge. So if you connect a wire from the 12 volt circuit to the battery on the trailer it will provide a maintenance...

  • Can a Trailer Battery On Dump Trailer Be Charged Using The 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • The issue is that trailer wiring is too small and vehicle alternators are rarely strong enough to push back the amperage needed to charge up a trailer mounted battery (unless it is a small breakaway system battery). The amount of power sent back is only enough to keep the battery at the level of charge it is currently at.

  • First, a trailer battery cannot be charged up from the 12 volt circuit on a 7-Way connector. The 7-Way can only provide a maintenance charge which will keep the battery at is current charge level. It is possible that the battery is back feeding when the truck is turned off and the trailer is still connected. You may also need to increase the size of the wiring.
