Peterson Piranha 168R Clearance Marker Light Dimensions

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.


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.


Surface-Mount Light

Surface Mount Trailer Light Installation Diagram

Surface-mount trailer lights install using a flange or bracket with mounting holes. These lights lay flat against the trailer surface and only require a small, often pre-existing hole, for wiring. Mounting hardware is used to secure the light to the trailer.

Video Transcript for Peterson Trailer Lights - Clearance Lights - 168R Review

Today we are going to take a look at Petersons Piranha LED Small Trailer Clearance Light, part number 168R. This light utilizes 2 LEDs on the inside with a life expectancy of 1,000 hours. Its sonically welded and sealed to keep moisture out of the light. It utilizes a 2 wire design, meaning you will have 1 wire for power, and the other wire will be your electrical ground. Its also designed to use a mounting base thats sold separately to attach to your trailer.

Next we are going to hook up the light to a power supply, so you can see how it looks. Well connect our white wire to ground, and our red wire to our power. Next well turn off the overhead lights so you can see how bright the light is. And that does it for Petersons Piranha LED Small Trailer Clearance Light, part number 168R.

All the products have been great. They were installed on an older livestock trailer and they just keeping going. The white LED lights we put on the inside work too good. When I first pulled them out I thought they were too small and would do the job. They are so good we rarely use the one up front because the back one does such a great job. Thanks for the good products. 566956

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. 124430

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

3/15/2013 Item 168A - Just the right size light I was looking for to use as a side marker for a motorcycle cargo trailer. Well built product. I used with its black base (B168-18) that fit well also. LED lighting excellent. Just great to deal with etrailer folks. 71000

Review from a similar Peterson 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. 444876

3 stars because of the clunky design, no gasket or screws. That said these are nice and bright and add turn signals to the side of the motor home; hope fully that will make us more visible. Used # 12 SS screws 1 inch long to mount. 640028

  • Submersible LED Trailer Lights for Boat Trailer Over 80 Inches Wide
  • The Peterson Piranha part # 168A is one of our submersible trailer lights so it will be safe to use on a boat trailer. We carry almost 100 submersible LED trailer lights and I will provide a link to a page that has them all. You could use a number of different lights to go between your trailer taillights. You could use part # 168R which is a red version of the light you asked about. We also have long light bars like part # MCL70RB that will cover more distance of the rear face of the...

  • The Deka 16-14 Gauge Butt Connectors - 5 Pack, # 05731-5 would be a great choice to allow you to wire up all of the lights you mentioned. The brown wire of the # TLL36RK is a single wire that you'd need to run from one side of the trailer to the other.

  • Peterson Piranha LED Small Trailer Clearance Light # 168R Recommendation for a 2001 Dodge Truck
  • On this Peterson Piranha LED Small Trailer Clearance Light # 168A that you referenced there are two wires for this unit. The yellow wire will be the power wire, whereas the white wire will be the ground wire. In order for this light to illuminate it will need power and a ground to complete the circuit. If you attach power to both of the wires it will not illuminate. You will want to find the rear tail light circuit and tap into that circuit using a Circuit Tester Kit # 40376 to first find...
