The clear LED tailight strips that came with my trailer started filling with moisture and were only partially working. Most trailer part places only had the 15" lights. You were the only ones I found with the 17" lights and a diagram showing the mounting hole centers and dimensions. The product pictures were great for checking the wiring. Quick shipping and the tracking link was great. A few simple tools & some butt connectors and I was done. Finished the job with clear caulking around the lights.I like the red strip over the clear stock one and the lights are easy to see even in full sun. 124510

My order came boxed very nice. All contents were there as promised. Chris was excellent to order from. She understood what I needed and had my order out that afternoon. I'd buy again from this company. All my lights are of premium quality, no junk. My converted ( incandescent to LED ) snowmobile trailer will be seen now. 338330

We installed two lights on a ramp for the rear of our car. They were so simple to install and they are very bright. Great product! 147110

This tail light will be used on a motorcycle and replace standard bulb trailer lights that are failing. This light happens to fit perfectly on the bar that formally held the old lights. The brightness and use as running as well as brake lights enhances the visibility of the bike even during daylight. 77995

The trailer lights are still performing like new. Im pleased to find a product that performs so well, is easy to install, and is and will continue to protect my tail!

Not real happy at this point. Spent most of the day filing down the back, ( center) of the light for mounting on a flat surface. Both rails on the back of the light created a bow when screwed onto a flat surface. If I would have just attached it to the flat surface, it would have put the circuit board in a bind and I didn't think that would be a good idea knowing the beating they would take if mounted them like that on the back of my flatbed trailer. With one end screwed down, the other end was approximately 1/8 of an inch raised above the mounting rail. If mounted like that, they would not have lasted 3 weeks before cracking the circuit board. as received, the small rails on the back did not provide a flat surface for mounting. But they did when I got done filing them. If anybody is going to screw an object 17" long onto a flat surface, ( unless it is made out of rubber) it better be flat also. On top of that, the wires could stand to be a bit longer. 327907

lights working great. I could not have made a better decision on what and who in order to obtain my desired results.

The LED taillights worked out great with my trailer rebuild. They will be protected at all times because I was able to have them tucked out of harms way. They are not low where backing up would endanger them and not protruding from the sides to be in the way either. But they are still highly visible at all times from the side or rear. THANKS for a great product! 451078


Comments

The tail lights were a great finishing touch to the rebuild of my utility trailer. The taillights are so visible and stay out of the way. They dont have those tender filaments in the old bulbs that a bouncing trailers play havoc with. Not to mention rusty bulb sockets that made the bulbs dimmer!

Comments

How was the lamp wired? The red wire is designed to be wired into the turnbrake lamp circuit. If the stop lamp function isnt working, its possible the vehicle uses a separately wired taillight system, with a separate bulb for turn and brake lamps. If thats the case, this lamp will not function as intended.

Some of the light units were not in any type of packaging at all. And the license plate holder light would only light two of the five LEDs in it. I am returning the entire order because m, 1, bad packaging, 2, license light is defective, 3, the quality of all products is not up to speed with the RV 5th wheel coach I wanted to put them on. It’s a 2019 35 foot unit and I want better quality equipment installed onto it. 596609

I like a lot of folks did my research, I have a specific requirement for this cargo carrier, I need it to hold a dock box made by lifetime. And this carrier works perfectly. It was very easy to assemble. And very sturdy. I enclosed a picture of the dock box installed. I had to do some modifications to the dock box, but it worked out beautifully. I highly recommend this cargo carrier for the price quality and value. 462637

Do you have a question about this Trailer Light?


  • Recommended Lights to Increase Visibility on Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack
  • The Optronics Sealed, Streamline LED Trailer Light # STL79RB referenced in your question will work to provide an additional light on your bike rack, however there may be easier options. You might have trouble mounting the light assembly to the rack itself and the 3-wire design will not allow for easy disconnect when you are not using the bike rack. For an easier option, I recommend looking at the LED Light Kit # 98174LED. You can easily mount these to your bike by using the Mounting...

  • Recommended Parts and Wiring for Adding LED Lights to Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp
  • Thank you for all of the helpful information! I do have a few different options for you to add LED lighting to your scooter carrier that resembles the MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier # MT70100. You can definitely use the Optronics Streamline LED Trailer Tail Light # STL79RB with wiring like the Hopkins Endurance # HM38134 by just using heat shrink butt connectors # DW05744-5. Since your carrier is aluminum you will need to cut off the eyelet on the ground wire and splice it to the white...

  • Compatibility of Optronics Streamline LED Trailer Lights for 2018 Grand Design 220RK 5th Wheel
  • You can absolutely remove the factory tail lights and replace them with a style you prefer like the Sealed, Streamline LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light, 3-Function, 11 Super Diodes # STL79RB. These are designed to be used as a replacement light and not simply an additional light, but they can be used for either purpose. I've attached a video of this installation for you to assist. There is an optional chrome base used only for the look that works with this light. It is # A79CB...

  • Operation of Optronics Streamline LED Trailer Lights STL79RB
  • Yes, what you are describing is normal operation for the Optronics Streamline LED Trailer Tail Light # STL79RB. When just the running lights are on the 4 diodes on top and bottom are brighter than the 3 middle diodes. When you press the brakes or use your turn signal all of them are supposed to light up. You can see this in the attached photo and review video.

  • Replacement Light Recommendation for Glo Brite 3rd Brake Light 9431-55-88
  • For a similar style light to the glo brite you mentioned, I recommend the Thinline LED Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn - Submersible - 9 Diodes - Red Lens # STL59RB or the Sealed, Streamline LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light, 3-Function, 11 Super Diodes # STL79RB as a replacement. I've attached videos of each to assist.

  • How To Wire A Third Brake Light On A Trailer
  • To get a third brake light on your trailer I would recommend the Optronics Sealed, Streamline LED Trailer Third Brake Light, 1-Function, part # STL80RB. This can be wired to your trailer using the Tow Ready Vehicle to Vehicle Taillight Converter, part # 118158. To install the tail light converter # 118158 on your trailer you will connect the wires on the input side of the converter, white (ground) to the trailer frame, green wire to green wire on your trailers wiring, and yellow wire...

  • Will Taillight Converter 118158 Power an LED Third Brake Light
  • The # 118158 will work for you. It can work to power an LED when installed on a vehicle with incandescent bulbs. As long as it has incandescent bulbs to power the converter it functions fine.

  • Adding a Third Brake Light to a Small Camper Trailer
  • You could use light # STL79RB as a third brake light. Normally it is not recommended to mix LED lights at incandescent lights because the lights don't have voltage/amperage regulators and an incandescent light could draw too much power through an LED and burn it out. But it would work fine in this case because in order to have a third brake light you would have to separate out the combined turn signal/brake light circuits to get a dedicated brake light only function for a third brake...

  • Looking for 24 Inch Long 1 Inch Tall LED Tail/Turn/Stop Light
  • The longest tail/turn/stop led light bar that we have that is similar to the Optronics # STL2RB that you referenced is the Optronics # STL79RB, which is 17 inches long and 1 inch wide. This unit is sealed so it is waterproof and contains 11 LEDs. Past the 17 inch point, you get into 48 inch running lights that go on the tailgate of a truck. I have attached a brief video demonstrating the 17 inch bar.

  • Installation Instructions for Optronics 3 Function Streamline LED Light part # STL79RB
  • The white wire, with the mounting eye, is a ground wire that needs to be connected to a metal surface on the trailer that is electrically grounded like the frame. The other two wires will provide the brake/turn and running lights. This light will not provide functions for both sides of the trailer, in order to do that, you would need two units. The black wire would be connected to your running lights, and the red will be wired to the brake/turn wire. In order for this light to simultaneously...

  • How to Determine Wiring Functions on Trailer to Allow Light Installation
  • It sounds like your existing trailer light may handle more functions than the 3-function (stop/turn/tail) Optronics LED light # STL79RB. This light has a white ground wire and two leads for power; the red wire handles stop/turn signals and the black wire accepts the tail light signal. Thank you for your included photo. In a typical 4-pole wiring configuration the green and yellow wires carry combined stop/turn signals, the white wire is ground, and the brown wire carries taillights....

  • LED Strip Recommendation for a Trailer for Additional Stop/Turn/Tail Function Visibility
  • If your LED strips only have a power and ground wire then they only have one illumination intensity and would not work for what you are trying to do. I would un-install them and go back to the wiring setup you had previous for now. Your best option would be to get the 3-Function LED Bar part # STL79RB that you referenced as this is specifically designed for what you are trying to do. I would run one on either side of your trailer. Connect the white wire to ground, the red wire will connect...

  • Which Wires Should be Tapped Into When Adding Additional LED Marker Lights on a Boat Trailer
  • In order to add LED lights that shine on your boat at night, they will need to be wired into the running light wire or wires on the trailer. On a typical 4-Way flat, it is the brown wire coming from the trailer side connector. To be certain, you can use a circuit tester like # ALL640595. With the trailer connector and vehicle lights on, probe the wires coming from the back of the connector until you find the one that is hot all the time. You can trace this wire back to where you want...

  • Adding a Third Brake Light and Tail Light to a Trailer Towed Behind a Motorcycle
  • Since your trailer has combined stop, tail, and turn signal lights you will either need to have 2 separate light assemblies and wire them in with the existing lights which would also give you turn signal functions on those center lights or you would have to use a special converter to separate out the turn signal circuits from the brake lights in order to just have brake and running lights on the center light. I recommend the second method so you will need converter # C56196. On the input...

  • I was unable to find any definite information about the requirements of a CHMSL on a camper such as you are describing. To have the best information as to the requirements of the areas where you are traveling, I recommend calling the DOTs of the areas where you will be traveling to be familiar with their state and local laws regarding CHMSLs on a camper. To connect a CHMSL to the left and right turn signals, you will want to use a converter, like part # 118158. With this converter,...

  • Using Vehicle To Vehicle Taillight Converter # 118158 to Provide 3rd Brake Lamp on Trailer
  • The Tow Ready # 11858 is essentially a reverse tail light converter. A trailer used what we call a combined tail light system, where the signals for the brake lamps as well as the turn signals are carried on the same circuit. The # 118158 reverses this process, by separating the brake lamp signal from the turn signal circuit. To install a 3rd brake lamp on a trailer, the # 118158 is exactly what you would need. You would tap the green and yellow wires on the INPUT side of the converter...

  • The wiring of the Optronics Trailer Light # STL79RB that you listed are: The white wire, with the mounting eye, is a ground wire that needs to be connected to the white wire of your trailer wiring. The black wire would be connected to your running lights and is the lower intensity illumination.

If you look at the back of the light, you will see three wires, as pictured. To install the lights, the white wire, equipped with a ring terminal, will be connected to a clean metal surface on the trailer frame, the black wire will be connected to the tail light circuit, and the red wire will connected to the brake and turn signal circuit....
