I am always pleased at how simple the ordering is, how fast my items come, and their vast selection of parts.

Ask the Experts about this Optronics Trailer Lights

  • How Many More Lumens Will an LED Flood Light Put Out When Compared To a Halogen Flood Light
    I am not sure which flood light that you are referring to but if you know the type and wattage rating of the bulb then you can get a good idea of the lumen output. The Optronics Halogen Utility Light part # QH16CTS for example contains a 35 watt halogen bulb therefore it will have an estimated lumens output of around 700. For an LED replacement, I recommend the Buyers Products LED Flood Beam Light part # 3371492190 which has 16, 24 watt LEDs for an estimated lumens output of around 4,050....

  • Wiring Instructions for QH16CTS Optronics Halogen Utility Lamp
    Due to the multitude of installation possibilities, Optronics doesn't provide installation instructions for their # QH16CTS Halogen Utility Light. This being said, I'd be happy to explain the electrical connections for you. The red power wire would attach to a 12-volt power source, and the lamp picks up its ground connection via it's attachment to metal that's in contact with the vehicle frame. If the lamp is mounted to a non metal surface, a ground jumper would need to be ran from the...

  • Dimensions of Lens for Optronics Halogen Utility Light
    The lens for the Optronics Halogen Utility Light # QH16CTS measures 4-1/2" x 2-3/4" and is about 1/2" tall. I have attached a dimensional photo and a review video for you to check out.

  • Replacement Fog Light Solution for Older Motorhome
    The closest match we have is the Westin kit part # 09-0405 which is 6 inches long and 4 inches tall. It could work for you but would require you to open up the area your light installs in currently. The other lights you mentioned are much smaller and would leave an opening in the panel.

  • Can the Optronics Halogen Utility Light Be Installed On a Snowblower
    The Optronics Halogen Utility Light part # QH16CTS will require a 12 volt power source for proper operation. I don't have any specifics on the power circuit for your snowblower but so long as you have an available 12 volt power source such as a stator (attached to the flywheel) then you can run a utility light like the above.

  • Diameter of the Mounting Stud of the 55-Watt Halogen Area Utility Light # QH16CTS
    I went and pulled a 55-Watt Halogen Area Utility Light # QH16CTS from our warehouse to measure the diameter of the mounting stud and found that it is .3 of an inch (or 5/16 inch) and the nut on the stud is .5 of an inch in diameter. So if you wanted to use this on your setup you would need to use a washer with a hole in the center of it that is about .3 inches in diameter and an overall diameter of about 3/4 of an inch.

  • Can 12 Volt Circuit on a 2012 GMC Yukon 7-Way be Used to Power Two 55-Watt Halogen Utility Lights
    The amperage draw of 2 of the 55-Watt Halogen Flood Beam Lights, # QH16CTS, is 9 amps. This should not be a problem for a 12 volt circuit on a 7-Pole. You can check the owners manual and/or the legend on the lid of the power distribution box for the fuse that powers the 12 volt circuit to see what it is rated for to be sure. The amperage rating for a factory 7-Way might also be listed in the vehicle owners manual. If connected to the 12 volt circuit from a trailer connector, the lights...

  • Optronics 55-Watt Halogen Area Light QH16CTS Not Working with AC 110 Volt to 12 Volt DC Converter
    This may seem obvious, but have you grounded the light? In the case of halogen light # QH16CTS the black wire is ground into the hardware and the red is the power wire. Sometimes AC to DC converters will not put out the correct voltage. Twelve volt systems are actually slightly higher than 12 volts, usually 12.8 volts. If your converter is not putting out the right voltage then that could be a problem too. You can check its output using a multimeter such as # BTMT15. Also, and I...

  • Adjustable Utility Light for Loading and Unloading a Horse Trailer at Night
    The utility light # QH16CTS is a 55-watt halogen light (like a car head light) so it will be as bright as one low beam car light. I would go with 2 of these lights for your application. You will want to be able as see as much as possible when there are animals involved.

  • Can Optronics 55-Watt Halogen Light # QH16CTS Be Wired into Reverse Lights of 2013 Ford F-150
    It is possible to wire an auxiliary light such as the Optronics 55-Watt Halogen Light # QH16CTS into the reverse light circuit of a vehicle. In order to do so the circuit must have the current capacity for both the OEM bulbs and the additional light. I researched in the online manual for your 2013 F-150 the bulbs used and the fuse rating for the reverse light circuit. The truck uses two 921 bulbs, each rated to draw 1.3 amps. The two bulbs together will draw 2.6 amps. This circuit is...

  • Do the Wires of the Optronics Trailer Lights # QH16CTS Run Through the Mounting Post
    I went out into our warehouse and pulled a Optronics Trailer Lights # QH16CTS and found that the wires come out of the back of the light assembly and not through the mounting post. I checked all of the other pedestal halogen lights we carry and they all have the lights coming out the back of the assembly like this unit. It would be just a matter of drilling a hole and installing a grommet to run the wires.

  • Does Switch Come with 55-Watt Halogen Area Utility Light # QH16CTS
    The 55-Watt Halogen Area Utility Light # QH16CTS would require you to install a switch as it does not come with one. The part # D16740 would work well as a switch. The light grounds through the mounting hardware so you would need to run the switch through the power wire.

  • Installation of Extra Reverse Lights on 2006 Ford F-250
    The amp draw is 4.5 amps per light or 9 amps for 2 lights on the Optronics 55-Watt Halogen, Multi-Directional, Area Utility Light # QH16CTS. With that much amperage draw I would not recommend to connect them to your factory wiring harness. It could cause overloading problems and damage your vehicles wiring harness. If you want to install the 55-watt lights on your 2006 Ford F-250 you will need to use the Draw-Tite Wiring Kit # 118151. This kit will allow you to run a separate 12 gauge...

  • Best Rectangle Fog Light Recommendation for Use on 4Runner
    If you are looking for the best option the part # QH16CTS is an option that could work but I would not list this as a best option. Instead for a similar option that is quite a bit more bright that would give you an incredible amount of light the part # XIL-OP210KIT would be what I would consider the best option. I know this kit is much more expensive but compare the two test course videos I attached to see the difference. It's a night and day difference (pun intended).

  • What Is The Amperage Draw On The Optronics 55-Watt Halogen Utility Light # QH16CTS
    The amp draw is 4.5 amps per light on the Optronics 55-Watt Halogen, Multi-Directional, Area Utility Light # QH16CTS. If used on your 2004 Chevy Silverado you will need to use the Draw-Tite Wiring Kit # 118151. This kit will allow you to run a separate 12 gauge wire with a 10 amp in-line fuse to the positive side of the vehicles battery. This will keep the lights from drawing power on your factory wiring harness which could cause problems. You will also want to be careful when installing...
