Video Transcript for Optronics Camping Travel Trailer Stop Turn and Tail Light Installation

Today on our pop-up camper, we're going to be installing the Optronics Camping Travel Trailer Stop, Turn, and Tail Lights. We're using part numbers RVST50 and RVST51t. This weather and corrosion resistant incandescent light functions as a combination stop, turn, and tail light. RVST50, without the license plate bracket, is going to measure 8 5/8" wide, 4 5/8" tall, and 2 1/16" deep. The RVST51, which does come with the plastic bracket to mount your plate to directly beneath, is going to be slightly taller at 6 5/16". The clear window on the bottom, to illuminate our license plate that we have attached to the bracket, will help us stay in compliance with a lot of different state laws. We're going to start our installation here in the rear of the camper. As you can see, we've already removed our old light. We're going to be left with our ground wire, our running light wire, and our turn signal wire. Let's strip a little bit off of each one of these. To the end of each one, we're going to add one of our heat shrink butt connectors.

That's part number DW05744-10. That will give you a 10 pack of them, it will be more than enough. That will take care of that side. Now we can bring in our light. As you can see, it's going to have our green wire, the black wire will go to the brown, and the white wire's going to go to white wire, of course, the green wire goes to the green wire. These are all pre-stripped for us, so we can pull the ends off of there. I like to separate the lens at this point.

To that, you just press in on the tab that's here on the side, and then pull out on the lens. The reason I like to do that is because I don't want this to get scratched up while I'm working with it. Just set that aside. Now let's make our connections. Now we can use a heat gun, or a lighter, and just heat up our connectors here, and it will shrink down for us. Now we'll just tuck the wiring back up on the inside. Use a couple of screws.

Sometimes you can be able to save the hardware that's with your ones. In our case here today, we're just going to use a couple of self tapping screws. Then we'll bring our cover in. As you can see, t-o-p, it says there, and then there's also a top label on each side there, just to help you get it all together properly. All we've got to do is slide our cover on. All right, that side's done. Now, if you want to be extra cautious about sealing this up, a little bit of silicon caulk all the way around could do a great job of that. Now we're going to do the same thing here on the driver's side.

The only difference will be that our red wire is going to become the brown wire that we had on the other side. This is going to give us our running light circuit for the driver's side here. Then as far as the license plate goes, we've got tabs that we'll easily be able to mount to. Just like that. We're ready to head down the road. Now let's run through and test our lights, make sure they're functioning all right. For the left side, we're going to have our left brake signal, and also the left turn signal. Let's do the right side brake light, and now the right blinker. The next thing we're going to test will be our tail lights, so we should have a constant on signal from both the left and the right. With everything working properly, that's going to complete today's installation of the Optronics Camping Travel Trailer Stop, Turn, and Tail Lights. Part numbers RVST50 and RVST51. .

Original product replacement. Sun had baked the original mounting clips that hold the lenses on. These replacement lights will make the camp trailer safe for a number of years. However, I expect the new mounting clips will also fail in time as the plastic hardens and becomes brittle. Enjoyed talking and ordering from Ian as he knew what I was looking for and the product arrived in the time frame we has discussed. Will certainly order replacement wart from etrailer in the future. Thank you Ian. 641038

Couldn't Find these anywhere but here. Great experience from finding what I needed on their website all the way to the email saying it was successfully delivered. Can't believe how fast I received package. Now that the snow melted of course it's been raining so hopefully I can slap these on our (new to us) pop-up camper SOON !!! I will be using Etrailer again..... 184564

These trailer lights are of very good quality, I like the socket the bulb fits into and were an excellent price. They were shipped to me super, super fast. I can not install them as yet because we are still in winter here. I have ordered from here before and I am a very happy customer. Thank You. 128270

Be sure and check the wiring before installation. I assumed the taillight's black wire would go to the trailer's brown wire and the taillight's green wire would go to the trailer's green or yellow wire - nope, I got it backwards. Otherwise, easy to install and works fine. 157911

I have heard and read a lot about etrailer.com and did not believe that they were that good. I order this product for my camper and did the ground shipping, it said 4 or 5 day delivery time, and I actually got it a day early. I installed it the next day in 5 minutes, the item looks just like the other one I order last year from another company, the only different was that etrailer product had the same color wiring as my camper was. and the other company product was WAY off which made installing it a BIG pain in the butt. Also etrailer email me to see if I was happy with their product and the other company didn't give a dam if I was happy, they already got my money. I like this type of service and is already planning to purchase more from etrailer.com. They are that good !! Thank-you!!! 145479

There was a question on what size these tail lights really were that was listed on the website. I had called customer services, and verifed which was the correct size, customer services was courteous, and efficient. I was really please on the prices of these tail lights, and how fast I recieved them, not to mention how easily they were to replace on my RV. 75972

This is an exact replacement for the tail lights on my 6X12 enclosed trailer. I always research pricing and quality before I purchase and this was the best buy I found. The delivery was quick - @ 3 business days from order - and the quality meets my expectations. I will definitely bookmark this site for future purchases. 92382

Exactly what I needed, I thought I might need to drill new holes, but it perfectly replaced the old light. The lens is, for the moment, soft enough that it doesn't feel like it's going to break when trying to get it apart, though a few years in the sun will change that I'm sure. That's what happened with the old ones, they finally just broke apart. The description doesn't say this, but they come pre-installed with light bulbs. For the price I hadn't expected this, so I had ordered LED 2057's elsewhere since I couldn't find them here. They look great. The bad news is they don't come with screws. I was able to re-use the screws from the old lights, but they were a little stripped (looks like somebody used a philips bit on a square-drive screw). I also cleaned the previous caulking and applied new -- it's there on other parts of my trailer, and I think it's a good idea. The one thing that stands out as obviously cheap is the *drivers side* version (part number RVSD51) has plastic tabs to hold the license plate. It turns out the light I replaced had the same plastic tabs, and the tabs had broken at some point and replaced with metal strips. This seemed like a good idea, the holes lined up with the license plate bolts and bottom screws behind the light, so my license plate is attached to both the plastic tabs and the metal strips. 522739

Right product, right price. Easy install, perfect fit. I got both left snd right tail lights, including shipping for less than a single light at Camper's Inn. The only suggestion I can make is they should include some form of soft gasket material to prevent water from getting behind the and possibly entering the hole in the trailer where the wires come through. I used a general purpose weather stripping putty for this purpose but a form fitting gasket would be a nice improvement. etrailer.com, I'll be Baaack. 142945

Do you have a question about this Trailer Light?


  • Replacement Tail Lights for a 2006 Forest River 5th Wheel Travel Trailer
  • The light in your pictures seems to be a # RVST50, wider at the bottom, little tabs on the sides holding the lens on. If your existing light is approximately 8-5/8" long x 4-5/8" tall then it will fit. The version with the license plate bracket is # RVST51 like you said. I think you have found the lights you need!

  • Recommended LED Tail Lights Similar to Discontinued Bargman 07 Series Lights
  • We do not currently carry those lights. Trailer light styles change, so I think these were discontinued by the manufacturer back in April of 2016. For a similar light, I recommend the Low Profile LED RV Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn, License Plate - 12 Diodes - Driver Side # RVSTL21 and passenger side # RVST50. If you like the rounded look, then I recommend the Low Profile LED RV Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn, License Plate - 10 Diodes - Driver Side # RVSTL11 and passenger side...

The driver's side does have the license plate light included. Unfortunately, we do not have any lights of that measurement that are LED.

These do have a flat base like you described, but you only need to add the Angled Mount Wedge Base # RV50BK to each assembly so they feature the same angled base that is on the picture you attached.

  • Can Trailer Tail Light RVST51 be Converted to LED To be Brighter

  • How to Wire A Replacement RV Tail Light on a Coleman Pop Up Camper with Red Tail Light Wire
  • It is likely that the red wire is a jumper wire from one side of the trailer to the other for the running lights. You can verify this by testing the wires using a circuit tester such as # 40376. Connect the trailer to the tow vehicle and have someone operate the light functions while you test the wires. For example, if you are replacing the lights with the RV Tail Light # RVST50, the white wire is for ground, the green wire is for turn and stop, and the remaining wire is for running lights.

  • The first thing to look at is the size of the Bargman tail light # 30-92-002 and how it compares to the existing lights on your 1981 Palomino pup. The Bargman light is 8-9/16" long x 4-9/16" wide x 2-1/8" thick. The wiring on this light may seem a little confusing but I can explain it. The two white wires are ground wires and will need to attach to a clean, bare metal surface. The black wire is for brake lights and turn signals. Green is for running lights. That leaves the red wire...

  • Running Lights Not Working But All Other Lights Are on Optronics Trailer Tail Light # RVST50
  • Since you have already looked at the ground wire for tail light # RVST50 then it is probably not an issue with this ground. The wiring on this light should be as follows: White wire: ground Green wire: tail light Black wire: stop and turn light Disconnect the trailer and use a circuit tester like # ALL640595 to test the 4-Way on the vehicle. If the running light circuit is working there then you know the issue is on the trailer. If it is not working, then you know there is a problem...

  • Replacement Trailer Taillights to Replace Peterson M457 on a 2005 Clamshell Trailer
  • We don't have the exact style you are looking for, but the part # RVST51 and # RVST50 would be a very similar replacement. We don't carry the Peterson M457 style taillights, but these are very similar with the only real difference being the shape of the lens.

  • Grounding Trailer Lights Mounted to PVC Guide-On Posts on Boat Trailer
  • If the trailer lights you mounted to your post-style guide-ons like # CE27640 ground through their mounting hardware then you will indeed need to add a ground wire from each assembly and attach them to a clean bare metal surface. Length isn't normally an issue but since you plan on running the ground wire all the way to the front of the trailer it will be a good idea to use a higher gauge wire for this application. Using 10 gauge wire should do the trick.

  • What Gauge Wire Should be Used to Wire 8 Marker Lights, Incandescent or LED
  • First, LED lights do draw a fraction of the amperage compared to incandescent lights. But going with either 16 gauge or 14 gauge wire would work. I would say if you use incandescent bulbs then 14 would be the better option and 16 gauge for LED lights.

  • How to Properly Ground Trailer Marker and Taillights
  • Each lamp needs to be grounded either through its mounting studs being in direct contact with the trailer frame or by having a jumper wire ran from the lamp to the trailer frame. Ground the trailer connector at the front of the trailer, which will use the trailer frame as a ground wire. This method is the most simple and effective. You could run a ground loop, but if everything's properly grounded, it won't be necessary. I'll link you to our FAQ article on trailer wiring.

  • Replacement Trailer Side 4-Way Flat Wishbone Trailer Connector
  • It sounds like you need a replacement 4-Way wishbone trailer side connector like # A35W42B. It is a 4-Way harness but has 5 wires, 2 of which are for running lights. I have included a link to a video showing a typical wiring and light replacement for you. If you need to plug a 4-Way flat trailer side connector into a 5-Way flat on a vehicle, normally you will not need an adapter because a 4-Way can plug into a 5-Way most of the time. If you are actually looking for something else let...
