Optronics TLL36RK Aero Pro LED Trailer Light Kit for Trailers Over 80 Inch Wide Diagram

Note: Over 80" Federal Regulations require additional clearance lights (like MCL93RB or MCL84RB - sold separately). Also, if using with a tilting trailer you may need to route a separate ground wire from the clearance lights to a metal part of the trailer frame since tilting trailers sometimes use rubber isolators in the tilting mechanism.


Sealed, Waterproof Trailer Light

The waterproof construction of this light makes it ideal for use on trailers that may be submerged, like a boat trailer. The circuit board is sealed, which means that water will not damage the diodes or circuit board.


Combination Lights for Trailers Over 80" Wide

Flatbed trailer over 80" wide with combination tail lights

If a trailer is 80" or wider at its widest point, then it requires rear clearance lights in addition to basic trailer lights. These clearance lights indicate the width of the trailer when it is viewed from the back.


To meet these requirements on a flatbed utility trailer where the bed extends past the wheels, you can install combination trailer lights that include the rear clearance function. For proper mounting, the lights must be installed at the widest points on the rear of the trailer - one on each corner.


P2-Rated Lights

Diagram of light spread for P2 rated light

A P2-rated light produces a 45-degree angle of light to either side of its centerline for a total of 90 degrees of coverage. This beam pattern can be seen straight on, but it cannot be seen clearly from the side. So this type of light can be used as either a side marker light or a clearance light, but it cannot function as both. If you need both functions, then you must install 2 separate lights on your trailer - one as a front or rear clearance light and one as a side marker light.

Good kit, would be better if they included machine screws as an option for mounting the marker lights, sheet metal screws don't work well if you are mounting on 3/16" steel. 693801

These fit my 1998 Ranger r91 sport boat trailer perfectly and a re a great upgrade. The screws needed to be pushed all the way to the very top of the channels and the lights look like they are a factory fit. Easy to install and a great product! 122124

After installing a wiring harness on my Honda Fit (which was fairly tricky!) I enlisted the help of my father and uncle to help me install this on a small ancient boat trailer for a newly built sailing dinghy. Installation was a breeze but we did have a hell of a time creating a good grounding contact with the trailer. On a newer trailer, this likely would have been easier. I would also recommend just wiring a full ground from the wiring harness at the car end and not messing with a metal-on-metal contact. I trailer and launch my boat in salt and fresh water and maintaining that ground connection throughout a season of regular use has proved challenging! The lights never come on at first but then bounce on after I go over a few bumps and stay on. The lighting kit has been great and I've had no problems whatsoever, just the standard issues of keeping the rust off the ground contacts and keeping the wiring in good shape as it's mounted on the outside of (round!) trailer supports. etc. The lights are bright and look nice and haven't filled with water or had any problems. You may need to invest in some larger/sturdier zip ties if you end up needing to run this on the outside of your trailer versus threading it through the frame. 585275

Well made product overall. I would have a few suggestions for the manufacture though. First the screws that came with it were not self tappers as described in the instructions. Luckily this was replacing old busted lights and no new holes needed to be drilled. Second the connections for the main wires to the wires on lights them selves should not be done with wire nuts. Luckily I had some heat shrink connectors . I launch my boat primarily is salt and brackish water and know hot gas saltwater can eat through most metals. Plus no submersible trailer should have connections with wire nuts. Third both sides should have clear back up lights on bottom of lights not just driver side I don't know about most people but I do use both mirrors backing up and most every one of my back downs take place well before daylight since this was for my duck hunting boat. 172747

Well, that light is for the license plate, NOT for back up lighting. Thought Id clarify that.

The stop/turn rear lights seem to be great quality and sealed well. The marker lamps itself is a sealed unit, but separate from its chrome mounting plate, so I guess thats OK. I'll be using some black silicone to install the lights; after I pilot drill the screw holes I'll put a healthy amount of silicone on the back of the unit. This will get a little goo in the threads to help seal them and fill any voids between the housing and trailer frame it sits against to prevent a little pool of water from being stuck in there. The stainless hardware to mount the main lights is good, but the rest of the stews suck. I'm going to pick up some better stainless screws that are longer, my trailer frame is thick. The plastic wire connectors are crap, throw them out (the little blue ones that pierce the wire for the marker lights). How is that water proof? Get some heat shrink butt connectors and adhesive lined heat shrink tube is this is for a boat trailer installation like mine. 152245

I purchased these lights to replace and upgrade the incandescent set that came on a 20’ boat trailer. I chose this set because I liked the way the taillight side markers protrude out rather than being flat. I felt that this would help with visibility at night. The only thing I’m not particularly fond of is the way the amber marker lights that came with the set are designed. The light itself I like. It uses a plug in wire design rather than a sealed wire that is already attached like the taillights. It’s more or less a matter of preference. I mounted these on the fenders facing forward to help see where the trailer is in dark and rainy weather. 528869

I’m still happy with the product and would recommend it to future buyers.

There seems to be some confusion (myself included) about the spacing of the mounting channels on the rear of the tail lights. So gather round and learn from my mistakes: ALL of the spacing between channels is 2". The difference is the distances from the channel to the side of the lamp assembly! Note the attached picture. The bottom lamp is for an over 80" trailer and the top is the one I mistakenly purchased. NOTE THE DIFFERENCES FROM THE SCREWS TO THE EDGES OF THE LAMP. BIG DIFFERENCE! Also note that the over 80 lamp (bottom) is shaped differently on the right side, while the top under 80 lamp has straight sides. Happy trailering! Keith 33502

Product arrived as ordered and on time. Pros: 1) Once installed, everything works and looks great. Cons: 1) Installation istructions included with the kit were a bit limited at times, especially if you had never done this sort of thing before (like me). For example the instructions to install the base-snap-on post-style amber marker lights were OK but not explicit in terms of pointing out that it's important to orient the light the right way before snapping it in place. Again, a reasonably bright person can figure it out, but a bit more guidance would have been helpful. 2) Kit does not include the three rear clearance LEDs to replace the ones on my trailer. It is clear that these are not in the kit and I'm not dinging etrailer.com for this. Just know that if you want to replace these, you are on your own to find them. For me it was a bit of a challenge since I wanted LED versions that fit where the old ones went without drilling new holes. I needed ones with mounting 'ears' with holes 2 3/4 inches on center. I found what I needed at a local retailer. To the credit of etrailers.com, this website is great in that specs like mounting hole spacing is usually right there for you. In searching online for the clearance lights I wanted many sites don't put that sort of info up for you. Bravo to etrailers! Don't let the 'cons' I listed dissuade you. This seems to be a good product (I haven't put the trailer in the water yet...), installation was pretty easy, and etrailers.com has good online info to help in most cases. 83065

These trailer lights are awesome! They work and look great and seem to be well sealed. After many trips to the lake they still look brand new with no sign of water entry. LED is the way to go.

Not very happy with these lights. Immediately after installation - first splash with the trailer - they flooded. I contacted etrailer but never heard back. While they continue to function, the flood every time. This was an expensive kit for not being led. The license holder is long-I had to modify it so that it did not drag on the ground. Overall clunky and cheap. 850586


Comments
The lights in this kit are LED, but the taillights are not a sealed housing design. The lights are sealed inside the housing so that they are waterproof, but the housings are not completely sealed. There is a drain hole on the bottom of the light to allow any water that gets in to drain out. With the housings not being sealed, it does allow you to replace the light lenses if one gets damaged.

Works as expected. Lights are super bright and large enough to see from a distance. It is easier to buy a wiring harness from trailer for your vehicle than to use the provided harness and having to splice to your vehicles rear electrical connection. Use wiring diagrams for 4 wire light kits to understand the install of side markers. Also, when installing on a travel trailer, you can tie all the grounds together to ease the install as the short white wires of the tail lights most likely won't reach the frame. Provided Directions for side markers not as clear as the regular light instructions were, hence the reccomendation of looking at third party wiring diagrams. 795561

I needed to replace a wiring harness on my skiff's 20+year old trailer; a harness which had been spliced to many times to count. Upon receiving my trailer light kit, it was discovered the required "pig tail" wires for the side clearance lights were not in the package. One call to the customer service dept. quickly rectified this. Paula S. was incredibly professional and polite assuring the missing wires were immediately mailed out to me. Installations was very easy, and there are video's on line which also review installation should one need a tutorial before taking on the task. Excellent product/customer support, and follow up. One of the best companies I've worked with in a very long time. 794608

  • Why Would Power Make it to New Trailer Running Lights Installed but Not Light Them Up
    How are you powering the new lights? Are you powering them in series or parallel with the old lights?
