I was pleased at how quickly the product was delivered. I bought some small butt splicers To help attach it to the existing wires on my a liner camper. Was happy the connections worked great. I also put some silicone caulk around it after installation to keep it dry.

Fits like a glove. Easy to install

Lights worked great. The only thing I didn't like is that there is no gasket to keep the moisture out. I used weather stripping with a sticky back on it. Fits perfect and keeps out the water. Looks clean and water tight

Got my lights on time, no instructions included with package, just the lights. Video for attaching this light has a video that shows how to attach with a tester, not an actual trailer. Showing how to attach it to a tester is worthless to me. Later found out that Etrailer also has heat shrink wire connectors that should be used when connecting this light and Now I have to order these before I can connect my new lights. This has been a bit of a frustrating experience with etrailer, although the lights look fine, good price and delivered on time.


Comments
The taillight would install as follows: Red wire: Reverse light circuit Green wire: Tail light circuit Black wire: Blinker and brake circuit White wire: Ground wire to trailer frame You can use a circuit tester like part # 40376
Circuit Tester Kit
$74.34
on the existing trailer wires to determine which wire carries which circuit.

They are wonderful people to work with. I order the wrong item and they sent me a complete item that i was trying to replace.. Very happy with them and yes i would recommend to other people. I do have them on but no pics yet the only thing that was wrong was the wiring was a different color then the RV (1986) ... but figured it out.. and they very quick with the delivery. Thank you Thank you very much.

Installed on my 2005 Aliner trailer. It took a little to figure out the wiring as red connected to blue, black to red and green to black. It was an easy puzzle once I went to your website and found the taillight wire color scheme. Great service and products. I tell all my Aliner friends about etrailer. Thanks

The tail light assembly I received from Etrailer is exactly like the one on my trailer that I broke. Installation will be easy. The price was very fair. Etrailer is a very good company! The online catalog was easy to use. Ordering was straightforward, and I was informed by email that the part was shipped within just hours of order submission. I chose the cheapest shipping option and still received the package in just three days. Well done, Etrailer!

Well made product with quality bulb mountings at a GREAT price. Easliy replaced older broken taillight unit. Lense fits secure and is clear and bright. The Plate holder tabs are sturdier than I expected from the pics. Does not come with a wiring diagram so you need to figure it out before connecting the wires. Ground and reverse are intuitive. Running light/brake bulb share the same socket. Simple solution is to test the wires directly on a cars 12V battery first to make sure you know which one is running light and which one is brake (the brighter one). I wrote the color/use on the back of the housing for future reference. This is the matching light to RVST55 (without plate holder)

Exact replacement for the one on my Montana High Country 5th wheel. The old light was still working but the tabs for the license had broken off, so that's the only reason I purchased a new light. There was no place on my trailer to mount just a license frame.

Quality of lights were the same as factory ones I replaced. Couldn't find the lights locally, especially needing the wedged spacer to accommodate the angle of the back of my trailer. Hole centers were slightly off but not a problem. Didn't expect to find an exact fit. More than happy with the price for these, cheaper than if I bought locally, even with shipping....Overall, very happy with this purchase, ordering was very easy, shipping was as they said and the instructions and videos from etrailer site are very helpful.

I own a vintage trailer and was cleaning it. The old license plate holder broke. After a quick panic, I decided to try to find something that I could adapt to fit. When I searched for this specific tail light, it popped up! An exact replacement! Brand, spanking, new! Thank you etrailer!

I ordered this product on a Monday and received it on Thursday. Great service and I ordered some extra pieces the next week and installed the new tail lights this past Tuesday night, just in time for the caming trip. Thanks for the product and great service that I received.
