PC-Rated Lights

Diagram of light spread for PC rated light

A PC-rated light produces a 90-degree angle of light to either side of its centerline for a total of 180 degrees of coverage. This beam pattern can be clearly seen when you are standing directly in front of the light, as well as when you are standing on either side of the light. When properly installed, this type of light can function as both a front clearance light and a side marker light or as a rear clearance light and side marker light.

Video Transcript for Optronics Steel Armored LED Trailer Light Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be installing the Optronics Sealed Steel Armored LED Clearance Light. This comes in red with part number MCL86RB, and in amber with part number MCL86AB. This marker light's going to be an upgrade over your original incandescents. The LED's in it are going to be longer lasting, and more durable. It has a nice steel solid casing that goes out beyond the lens to protect it from any impacts.Typical incandescents don't last nearly as long. An LED will last roughly 50 times that of an incandescent.

Additionally, LED's use less wattage than typical incandescents, so you can make a brighter trailer with more lights. It doesn't draw any excessive current.The light measures 4 and 1/2 inches long by 2 inches tall by 1 and 1/2 inches deep. And from the center of one hole to the center of the other mounting hole, it's going to be about 3 and 7/8 inches. And when comparing this light to others on our website, such as Peterson's, part number 424200, it's going to have similar measurements, but this light's going to be significantly brighter, because it's LED and lasts a lot longer.The Peterson light will be a little easier to install, because you only need to hook up your power wire as it grounds through the mounting holes. And now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed.We'll begin the installation by taking our light, connecting our power wire, which is the black one, to the power wire that's run on our trailer.

We'll use a heat shrink butt connector to do that, so we'll just crimp that on to our light, and then crimp the other end on to the power wire on our trailer.We'll now take a heat gun, which will shrink down our butt connector, and seal out any moisture and corrosion. I went ahead and run a zip tie up through the bottom of the frame, up out our hole, so we can use it to pull our ground wire back down through the bottom. This way we can attach it underneath, so it won't be seen and it'll look real nice when we're done.We just need to take that zip tie we ran, use a little piece of electrical tape here to attach it to our ground wire. We can now push in our power wire that we connected earlier, just push that into our frame there, and we're ready to start attaching our light.Line your light up where you want it to be, and then on our two center at our holes, we'll take a small drill bit and mark where that is, so we can put our screws there. I use some self-tapping screws to secure our light to our frame.

Self-tapping screws don't come included with the light, but can be picked up here at etrailer.com. Now you do want to leave it a little bit loose so you can line up your other hole before fulling tightening it down.Now we can take another self-tapping screw and thread it into the bottom of our frame through our ground wire here. Now you can trailer up your vehicle, turn on your tail lights, and make sure everything's working properly. And with our light working properly, our trailer is now legal and ready to hit the road.And that completes our installation of the Optronics Sealed Steel Armored LED Clearance Light.

I have not put them on the trailer yet, but they are made of good quality materials it appears. They arrived in a timely fashion and were packaged well. I will update once I have installed this weekend and actually been able to see how bright in day and night they are for performance. as of right now I would have to say excellent. I would recommend at this point. 554771

I replaced plastic side trailer marker that I broke wheeling a trash can by on the driveway. The new lights are much better looking and wont be broken! But I always expect quality from E-Trailer!

I purchased these for the side rail marker lights on our 20’ boat trailer. I liked the protection on the top and bottom of the lens. There are two lights in the picture. One on the fender and one on the side rail. I used the light that came in the kit to mark the fender and this to mark the side rail. 581551


Comments
I am still happy with this purchase but a little disappointed too. After a year, the metal bracket is rusting which is disappointing. I’d still would recommend it to future buyers but be aware of this.

Ask the Experts about this Optronics Trailer Lights

  • Are Optronics Amber Marker Lights MCL86AB Submersible?
    The Sealed, Steel Armored LED Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light # MCL86AB cannot be submersed; it is weather-tight. What you would want is something that is waterproof such as Sealed, Mini Rectangular LED Trailer Clearance # MCL85AB. You may also want to consider something like the Optronics Mini Thin Line Sealed LED Marker/Clearance Light # AL82AB which you would mount with bracket # A91OB (chrome) or # A91BOB (black).

  • Mounting Hole Dimensions of the Steel Armored LED Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light # MCL86AB
    The mounting holes of the Sealed, Steel Armored LED Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light # MCL86AB are 3-7/8 inches apart measured on center. I attached a picture that has this and a couple other dimensions as well plus a review video. Manufacturers don't like having CAD drawings of their products floating around so we don't typically have access to them or post them.

  • Recommended Armored LED Clearance and Side Marker Lights in Amber
    The Optronics Armored LED Clearance and Side Marker Light - 6 Diodes - Steel Housing - Red Lens # MCL86RB you asked about does have the amber lens option in part # MCL86AB. These are both excellent options to have matching light housings on the front, side and rear of your trailer. I've attached an article on trailer lighting requirements to help you with locations.

  • Recommended LED Replacement Options for Pop-Up Trailer To Conserve Battery Life
    For your interior overhead lights, I recommend the Optronics LED RV Interior Double Dome Light with Switch - 815 Lumens # RVILL34. Then for your outdoor lights on side the Optronics Armored LED Clearance and Side Marker Light - 6 Diodes - Steel Housing - Amber Lens # MCL86AB. Then for your CO tester you can simply use a switch like the Buyers Mini Round On/Off Rocker Switch w/ Bezel - Backlit # 3376391100 to wire the 12V CO tester.

  • How to Install the Optronics # MCL86AB Clearance Light on a 2005 GMC Sierra
    Although the Optronics # MCL86AB is designed for trailers you can possibly use it on your 2005 GMC Sierra. When a clearance light only has one wire it is because it is grounded through the mounting hardware. Since the Steel Armored LED light that you referenced has 2 wires (one for power and one for ground) you would need a ring terminal like part # DW05737-1 and a self-tapping screw like part # FA1131822 for the ground.

  • Recommended LED Clearance Light That Can Be Submersed
    The Optronics Clearance and Side Marker Light, part # MCL86AB is sealed and considered weathertight, but is not submersible. Its design is to protect it from the elements like rain and snow and dirt. I recommend a clearance light like part # MCL85AB. These lights have a sealed lens and housing and can be submersed. This light has an amber lens and 3 LEDs. This light has one wire for power and is grounded with the mounting hardware.
