Peterson 162R Piranha LED Clearance Marker Light Dimensions

Sonically 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 housing and lens are sonically sealed together to create a single unit, which means that water will not get into the light and damage the diodes or circuit board.


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.


Recessed-Mount Light

Recessed Grommet Mount Trailer Light Installation Diagram

Recessed-mount trailer lights install with a grommet, which is often sold separately. These lights extend past the trailer surface and require a hole for installation. If replacing a light, you can utilize the pre-existing hole. If installing a new light, you will need to cut a hole or use a mounting bracket (sold separately) to complete the installation.

Video Transcript for Peterson Piranha LED Clearance or Side Marker Trailer Light Review and Installation

Ryan: How's it going Ryan here at etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install, the Piranha LED clearance or side marker trailer light. Now this light, it's going to work great as either a direct replacement, or even an upgrade. And I say upgrade because over traditional style incandescent bulbs, this one's actually an LED. Now since it has those three LED diodes, it's going to be much brighter and last a really long time. You have no brittle filaments to worry about.

The days of having to keep spare bulbs inside of your truck's glove box are long gone. The light is going to be two and a half inches in diameter and it's going to be 15 sixteenths of an inch thick. That way you should be able to figure out which light is going to be the best option for your trailer.Now if we flip the light over, it's going to be sonically sealed, so everything will be nice and tight so it's going to be waterproof. And once you kind of get the light in your hand and feel it, you can just tell what it's really well built and should last for a really long time. Now the light is going to accept these standard two prong connector, like we have plugged in right now.

Now if your connector is damaged or anything like that and you need to get a new one, you can find them here etrailer.com. And since the LEDs are going to last a really long time, once you get the light installed, you're not going to have to worry about messing around with it. Speaking of installation, let's go ahead and put this in together now. To begin your installation, he moved back to the light that you're wanting to replace. In our particular situation, it is this missing side-marker.Now if your light is not missing, you'd simply remove it.

Now the way the lights are moved, you can kind of just push in on one side of the light and it'll kind of spin sideways and you're able to pull it out of the grommet. And to disconnect it, there's nothing special about these, you simply just pull back and that'll separate the two. Other than that, once you have it removed, you can simply plug the light in. Now, even though these terminals come with a little bit of dielectric grease on them, I like to add just a little bit more cause it can't hurt anything. And if you'd like to add some more too, find it here at etrailer.com.

Let's get those coated, plug that into the terminals and push it down to completely connected. But the light plugged in now, you simply just push it back into the grommet. Sometimes it can fit a little bit tight to the grommet, so we kind of just work around it and push back and get it to fully seat. Now it's always a good idea to test light, so you go ahead and put power to it and turn it on and make sure everything is working properly. And that'll finish up our look at and our installation of the Piranha LED clearance or side marker trailer light.

Ordered 4 of your 2 1/2 inch round LED marker lights. Price was good, shipping time was good, but you placed large stickers over two of the lenses. It took a lot of effort and time to remove the goo off the lights from these stickers.

I will follow up with our Warehouse team so we can better label these lights.

I used these lights to replace the burnt out lights on the back and sides of my box trucks. These are much brighter than the originals, and as they are LED, I expect them to last much longer as well. The price was also great.

The lights are still working GREAT! Not one failure.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


These lights were the perfect brightness, very rugged, and easy to install inside protected areas of the frame on the updated raft trailer. etrailer has great selection, the website makes it easy to find the best parts for the job, and their communication is excellent. Their videos and reviews are invaluable.

Purchased these side marker lights specifically because they have two wires rather than just a positive wire and the ground attached to the mounting grommet. Lights were easy to mount and with rubber gasket they are protected from vibration.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


Replaced poorly designed lights on a travel trailer with these. The original lamps were not weather proof and used tensioned contacts that were prone to oxidation and corrosion from the elements. These LED lamps are sealed in epoxy so the elements will not affect them. Each lamp has two LEDs and a 6" wiring pigtail.

I had lights similar to these as markers on my old trailer, and was looking to find similar for the front markers on my Avalanche. NIce and small, bright as can be, fully sealed behind, and I think they cost less than before !

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


I used four of these sealed led lights to replace the clearance lights that came on my Shorelander boat trailer. The hole spacing fit the existing holes and the lights have held up very well to over 100 launches and recoveries in salt water. I recommend them.
