Video Transcript for Optronics Sealed Rectangular LED Identification Trailer Light Installation

Today, well be installing the Optronics LED Identification Lights for trailers over 80 inches wide part number MCL98RB. First off, well go ahead and measure the width of the trailer and find the center point. Now that we know where the center point is, well go ahead and hold the light up and mark the two holes that we need to drill to mount it to the rear of the trailer. Well also go ahead and drill a hole so that the wires to be put to the rear of the frame of the trailer as well. Well go ahead and wrap up our connections before we put the light in place. Youll need to come up with some screws or some way to fasten the light to the rear of your trailer.

In this case, were using a couple small machine screws, washers and nuts. You will see that theres a white and a black wire that comes out of the back of the light. The white wire, we will need to tie in to a ground somewhere on the frame. The black wire, we will tie in with the running light circuit on the trailer. In this case, its the brown wire.

Now that the light is mounted, to give us the brown wire at the rear of the trailer, well need to add a small section of brown wire to the black wire. To do this, well use a butt connector to extend up through our running light circuit on the trailer. Once weve made our butt connection, we went ahead and also add a little electrical tape to help protect the connection. In this case, it also worked out that were able to fish the brown wire to the part of frame of the trailer to keep it protected. Once we have that done, well go ahead and well put a ring connector on the end of the white wire.

Well need to ground it to the trailer. To do this, we use a self tapping screw. Now that we have our ground wire completed, well go ahead and make our connection with the running light circuit which is the brown wire. To do this, we will split the green and the brown wire using a razor knife, being careful not to damage any installation on the wire. Once we have the wires pulled apart, well go ahead and find a good location where we make our splice.

To make the splice, we use another butt connector where well put the one into the brown wire as well as black wire that has jumper lead now from the new light and one into the butt connector. The other end of the butt connector will have the other end of the brown wire that we just cut. Once we have the butt connection made, well go ahead and tape it up again to give a little extra protection as well as taping the green wire back to the brown wire. Now that weve got this done, well go ahead and do a test on our light to make sure it works. As you will see here, it lights up when the running light circuit is on. With that, that will complete the installation of the Optronics LED Identification Lights for trailers over 80 inches wide part number MCL98RB.

As described. 500697


Works great on my boat trailer. My wife accidentally broke a piece off of it by hitting it with the outdrive on our boat. The light now fills with water when launching the boat but, the light still works great. We do not disconnect our lights when backing down the ramp so the lights work while under water, even when fill of water. 528911


WOW! I recently ordered lights to replace the original lights on my neighbor’s 20 year old DewEze Jay Bed and I couldn’t be happier with the entire process! Everything arrived quickly and in perfect shape with plenty of cushioning to prevent damage. The combination tail lights are simply perfect for the application and the reverse lights are BRIGHT! I actually prefer these surface mounted tail lights over the gasketed style that is currently on my flatbed trailer. In the future I will be ordering several sets of these to replace the lights on the trailer and for a flatbed that will be going on my own truck, I’m planning on using two sets in the truck’s flatbed with one set on the headache rack using the reverse lights as bed lights, I shouldn’t have any problems seeing stuff on the bed at night. 573853

Great product 815440


This is my third of forth order from etrailer, All of my projects involve the upgrade to led lighting versus incandescent lighting. No issues, great value and prompt shipping. THANKS AGAIN 791121


After two seasons of saltwater fishing the original “ID” lights on my boat trailer were shot. This LED replacement fit the factory hole spacing, is sealed, and hopefully more durable. Installation was easy and it was inexpensive. So far, it’s a win. 790906

I have ordered several products for the re-wiring and updating of by 10000 lb sailboat trailer. I have ordered electric brake kits, wire terminal boxes, led lights, etc. The shipping is incredible and fast, and the products are well made. 641815


Easy to install. Has been flawless. 561932




Light seems to work well very easy to install. This is installed on a boat trailer and has been submersed seems to be still working perfect. 550305


Have all the parts with a great selection and price of trailer parts. Fast shipping with great communication. 546705


The products I bought form etrailer are superior to what I replaced on my 1988 stock trailer. The clearance lights both red and amber have a good grounding and 12v supply lugs. Solid lugs for positive connections unlike the old two piece units where the ground and positive connection fails between two cheap movable parts. I'm very happy with the quality and construction of these lights. I also ordered the 3 diode ID light bar looks good and works good. On line ordering is fast and easy and delivery was three days to the west coast which is greatly appreciated thank you everyone at etrailer you do a superb job!! 543384


1 year later and still no issues. Lights still look and perform as new. Trailer is stored outside so it is exposed to the elements 24x7x365. 472305


I have no issues with the product but with the tracking . 469862


I purchased the LED identification lights and the round LED lights for my horse trailer. I shopped around and found etrailer to be the best value. I am 100% satisfied with the lights and customer service. Thanks 464692
