by:

My dogs decided to eat the wiring on my trailer. This kit provided everything necessary to make the trailer whole again



by:

Really cheap.

These lights are marketed
as submersible, but based on what's in the package I'm really dubious.

The lens bodies are not sealed. As you can see My photo, each lens body has a clearance hole for the wire - No gasket, and plenty of room around the wire, So water will definitely flood in and submerge the contacts and bulb/socket If you put these on a boat trailer.

Additionally, to Make the wire connections. They give you wire nuts. For submersible wire connections, at the very least, you should use crimp butts wrapped in tape - or better yet a heat shrink crimp butt. But they give you wire nuts, which aren't even really stable against vibration, let alone moisture.

It does say 3-year warranty on the package, however, so I guess I'll be testing that out.

Rewired my 8x4 bed trailer, and chose these fo mo betta rain proof. EZ wiring, they're working fine!

Ok, had an issue with the bulb socket for brake and turn signal. Those socket designs date back to the stone age. Hard to set the bulb for proper electrical contact. Badly needs an updated design.



by:

Put these on an old boat trailer. Came out great. I got some white 16 gage stranded wire to carry the ground out to each mounting place. Helps the lights stay on even when stuff gets rusty.

No problems

Great replacement light kit.



by:

generally happy with product but it was missing a nut for attaching light to trailer.



by:

This is an excellent product and simple to install. As long as you have a functioning plug-in on your vehicle you’ll be happy.
Time will tell how well it holds up to water and vibration

I’ve since pulled my boat to the lake with the trailer that I installed this lighting harness on. I unplug the lights before I back down the boat ramp to assure I don’t short out the system. Other than that I am still satisfied and would recommend these to anyone. Simple to install



by:

The light kit works great now; however, after much sweat & experimenting. Initially, I couldn’t get any of the lights to work, then I sanded away the paint where the lights attached to get good grounds from each light bolt/screw. At that point, 1 light worked perfect while the rest remained very dim. After changing wires & tow vehicles to verify it wasn’t something wrong with that connection, I found an etrailer post about running separate ground wires from each light directly to the ground connection coming from the tow vehicle. After another run to Lowe’s & several more feet of wire - it worked. Finally!! I don’t deal with this stuff regularly so this was like looking for an electric needle in a haystack. During this process, I called etrailer & they were good enough to get ready to send me a replacement light set, thinking this one was defective. Fortunately, I didn’t need it.



by:

It was exactly what I needed and works great. Thank you guys.



by:

This is a pretty standard trailer light package. The price was good and the equipment works great. I would recommend this product. It comes with electrical clips that are garbage though so I would recommend doing something different for you connection health. Overall, I have saved it for the next time my tire explodes going down the road and takes out my lights just for added injury to my night. (lol)



by:

It is good product and I would recommend it completely.



by:

So far these have held up well. Been a year



by:

looks great just got to find time to put them in-thanx-steveb



by:

Easy to install, did mine in a storage unit with minimal tools and no lights. Great product.



by:

Price was less than the local stores and shipping was fast. The lights look well made but I haven't had a chance to install them yet.



by:

Thanks ETrailer for making my boat trailer restoration a success . I restored a 1960 boat trailer to look brand new with your help.



by:

The lighting system performed well in traveling from NY to northern Michigan and return to carry an old boat back for restoration.



by:

Easy installation, works the way it sho uld.



by:

I was looking for something cost efficient and good quality and I found it. I put the lights on a 62 Willys pick up I'm renovating. Work perfectly !



by:

perfect for my kayak trailer



by:

for the price you cant go wrong with th em



by:

I had to replace the lights on my utility trailer. The Kit came complete with easy to follow directions. Everything matched up perfectly almost plug and play. It took about 3 hours to remove the old lights and install the new ones. The only extra thing I had to purchase was extra white ground wire. The length that came with the kit was a little short. All other wire was more than ample length. That is why it got 4 stars other than that minor thing it would have gotten 5 stars. I am not a big user but the people at e-trailer are professionals with great follow up. This is the 2nd time that I used them and I do not hesitate to recommend the company and people.

They are holding up fine and I would recommend them to anyone



by:

Easy to install just follow the instruc tions.



by:

The quality of these are better than the factory lights that came on the trailer originally. They're even brighter even though they use the same kind of bulbs as the original factory lights. The price was reasonable too.



by:

Work great and good price

  • Best 4.80-12 Trailer Tires For Highway Speed
    Okay, let's go ahead and start with the best 4.80-12 trailer tires for highway speeds, and for that you want a radial tire because they run cooler and flex more than bias tires. The best option for this is a tire from Taskmaster: - Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire # TT48012C The # TT48012C has an 81 mph speed rating, the highest for this size tire, and is a load range C tire that has a 990 lb per-tire rating (so 1,980 lbs for two tires). As for a wheel and spacer, there really...

  • Is There Difference Between Optronics Taillight Kits TL5RK and TL29BK
    The Optronics kits part # TL5RK and # TL29BK are both very similar. Only real difference is there is a slight housing design difference between the two main taillight assemblies with the # TL29BK having the more recent design. Both are great kits that will hold up really well, better than what came on your Harbor Freight trailer for sure.

  • Will The Peterson M540 Light Kit Fit A Bracket With 2-1/4" of Head Room?
    I measured from the center of the mounting studs to the top of the lights that come with the Peterson Light Kit # M540 and it is 2-1/2". Just to make sure, I also measure the Optronics Under 80" Trailer Light Kit with 25' Wiring Harness # TL5RK the same way, and they measure exactly the same, unfortunately. With that said, I may have another option available, but the lights will be completely different. If you look at the Optronics Trailer Light Kit # TL16RK, which technically is for trailers...

  • Replacing Taillights on a 1986 Bayliner 1650 Using Trailer Light Kit TL5RK
    Our lighting kits are not necessarily trailer specific. If the Submersible Trailer Tail Light Kit # TL5RK fits the electrical connection on your tow vehicle (in this case the light kit has 4 flat wiring) then the lights can be mounted in the existing trailer mounts if they are the correct size. The light kit has mounting studs, nuts included, that are 2 inches on center for mounting to a metal mounting bracket. The bracket must be attached securely to the trailer frame because the lights...

  • Submersible Version of Peterson Light Kit part # M540
    For a submersible version of the Peterson Light Kit part # M540 that you referenced you'd want the # TL5RK which comes with the exact same style of lights, wiring and bracket but is designed for boat trailer applications like yours! I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Running Light Circuit Not Working On Right Side of Trailer
    The blinker/brake lights are carried on one circuit and the running lights are on a totally different one. Since the stop/turn circuits seem to work on the left side but the running lights on that side do not you need to check the wiring of the running light circuit that runs to that side of the trailer and fix as needed. I attached a diagram of how a trailer is normally wired as well as a help article that covers troubleshooting trailer wiring as well.

  • Difference Between Trailer Taillight Kits that are for Over 80 inches in Width and Under 80 inches
    There are different taillight requirements for trailers that are over 80 inches in width vs. ones that aren't over 80 inches in width. If you check out the link I attached you will see all of these differenced highlighted. The over 80 inch kits like the part # TL16RK typically come with additional clearance lights when compared to the under 80 kits like the # TL5RK. I attached review videos for both kits for you to check out.

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a Trailer Less than 80 inches Towed by a 1992 Ford Explorer
    The Optronics Trailer Light kit # TL5RK that you referenced would be an excellent choice for you and would work very well on your trailer towed by your 1992 Ford Explorer with the only exception is that the wiring is 18 gauge instead of 16 gauge like you said you preferred. I can assure you though that this wiring kit will work well for you and the amperage draw would not be too much for the wiring.

  • Running Lights Not Working on Trailer After Installation of Optronics Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK
    There are many possible reasons why the running lights are not working on your trailer when using the Optronics Trailer Light Kit, part # TL5RK. First, I recommend checking the ground connections. The trailer lights on this kit will ground through the mounting studs. They will need to be attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface. You will also want to make sure that the main ground from the trailer connector is attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface....

  • How to the Lights in Trailer Light Kit TL5RK Ground to the Trailer
    The lights included with light kit # TL5RK ground through the mounting studs. The light grounds should also be attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. If there is anything between a light ground and the metal trailer frame or if the trailer has an aluminum frame, tilt bed, or folding tongue, any of these things can interrupt the ground. Running jumper wires from the light grounds to the main trailer connector ground can help. It does sound like a weak ground connection....

  • How do Tail Lights in Submersible Trailer Tail Light Kit Secure to Trailer
    The Submersible, Under 80" Trailer Light Kit with 25' Wiring Harness # TL5RK has mounting studs, nuts included, that are 2 inches on center for mounting to a metal mounting bracket. The bracket must be attached securely to the trailer frame because the lights in this kit get their ground connection through the mounting studs. I have included an installation video and a video review of this light kit for you to check out as well.

  • Type of Wiring Harness that Comes with the Optronics Submersible Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK
    The wiring harness that comes with the Optronics Submersible Trailer Light Kit, # TL5RK, is a wishbone wiring harness meaning there are 5 wires coming out of the back of the 4-pole flat connector. You will have one white wire for the ground, one yellow wire for the left turn and brake signals, one green wire for the right turn and brake signals and two brown wires for the tail lights. The reason there are two brown wires for the tail lights is to make it easier for you to run the wires...

  • Need Tail Light Mounting Brackets for Tail Lights Included in Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK
    The Optronics Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK that you referenced does not include mounting brackets for the two tail light assemblies since these lights use their mounting studs to mount and provide the ground connection. You can use a bracket to mount the tail lights but you will want to be sure that there is a solid metal-to-metal connection between the bracket you use and the trailer frame to enable a good ground. The spacing of the two mounting studs on these Optronics lights is 2-inches...

    Standard 4-pole trailer wiring uses flat-style connectors, like part # W787268 which is a trailer-side connector and part # HM48044 which is the mating vehicle side connector.

  • Recommended Wiring And Trailer Light Kit For Harbor Freight Trailer
    Since you said you want to re-wire your entire trailer I recommend the Optronics Submersible Trailer Light Kit, part # TL5RK.

The mounting hardware is also included with this kit. I have also attached a link to an installation video for this wiring kit you can check out.

  • What Does 80 Inch Trailer Mean On Optronics Submersible, Under 80 Inches Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK
    The 80 inches means the width of the trailer. Trailers that are over 80 inches wide are required to have two side marker lights, one on each side. The Optronics Submersible, Under 80 Inches Trailer Light Kit with 25 Foot Wiring Harness, part # TL5RK, is designed for trailers under 80 inches wide. The 25 foot length of wire that comes in the kit should work fine with your 20 foot long boat trailer. If you are needing a longer 4-way wiring harness I have the Optronics 35 ft. Wishbone 4-Way...

  • Wiring Replacement Trailer Side 5-Pole Wishbone Harness
    If your flat wishbone trailer connector has those 6 wires in total, then it is probably a 5-pole wishbone harness like # A40W5B (since you also count the ground pin). The feature that makes it a wishbone type is the two dual-color running light wires, the yellow-brown and the green-brown wires, which both connect to the same pin for running lights. This pin is the one next to the ground pin as shown in the linked photo. The two wires merely simplify connection to the lights on the two...

    When it comes to adding an additional license plate light to the Submersible, Under 80" Trailer Light Kit with 25' Wiring Harness, # TL5RK, I recommend taking a look at the LED Mini Trailer License Plate Light, # LPL31CB. The light has a weathertight seal to protect it against the elements and the two-wire design includes the lead and ground wires to mount to any surface. In order to wire this light, one of the wires will need to connected/spliced into the running light circuit (brown...

    While the wires and portions of the internals of the Submersible, Under 80" Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK are exposed to water when the ligth is submerged all of the important parts of the light and circuits are sealed so nothing gets damaged. So the water will fill in the assembly but then drain out without damage.

  • Both Portable Lights Flash On Tow Vehicle When Hooked Up to RV
    It sounds like you are using magnetic lights like part # TL21RK on your towed vehicle that has a 4-pin that connects to a 7 to 4 pin connector at the RV. I recommend to check all of the wiring for frays or damaged wiring to make sure there is not a short that is allowing 2 functions to get a signal at the same time so the magnetic lights light up at the same time. What type of adapter are you using and did you use it before this started happening? It makes me think the problem is a short...
