My utility trailer was beginning to look like Johnny Cash's Cadillac. It had tail lights from boats, wrecked cars, anything that would blink or light up. I found etrailer on line and not only did I find trailer lights but my exact original lights. The price for the lights were less than $10.00 each and arrived in less than 1 week. I am more than satisfied with your company and highly recommend etrailer to anyone needing trailer parts.

Working great, no longer trembling when law enforcement gets behind me.

I would have preferred an LED light and it would have been better if it were a bit larger in diameter. I was looking for a rear stud mount that would work with our existing trailer configuration, which also limited my choices.



- 431800
by:

Installation went well and lights have performed fine after 1 year. A suggestion for future purchasers: I did not drill light assembly grounding wire screw holes into my freshly painted trailer. Instead, since the light mounting studs were ample length, I attached each light ground wire to a light mounting stud with a double nut and ran a ground wire from this stud to the same mounting stud on the other light. Then I ran another ground wire from a light mounting stud to the front of the trailer where I connected it to the ground wire of the connector. This way there is no future corrosion problems that occurs with ground wire screw holes drilled thru the frame paint.

Solid product for utility trailers. Lights ground when mounted. FYI

I put this on a classic Holsclaw motorcycle trailer. I felt it was the closest representation of the lights that came with the trailer and this brand was recommended to me by an enthusiast group that loves these old trailers. I was very happy to see that etrailer carried this brand. Even though I live close to the warehouse, I had these shipped and they arrived quickly. These are well made, durable and so far have worked flawlessly.

First I want to say that this order was of great importance to me because my Dad needed it for a trailer he purchased. He and I searched high and low and could not find tail lights that had a small enough diameter to fit in the pockets designed on the trailer. So I widened my search and happened across Etrailer.com. They had exactly what I was looking for and the price was what I thought to be very low and even though I ordered them on a national holiday they shipped the same day and were delivered before I expected. I decided to look around their website since I am a cattle farmer and more than often need parts, to my delight, they have about everything I might need so I will be shopping here again...

I got the round 431800 & 432000 for a 4x6 ft trailer. I had to mount them at 90 degrees from horizontal in order to light the license plate. The 432000 is designed for the license plate to be under the light. I sent an email to etrailer asking if they would let rain water in when mounted this way. They responded in about a week & said they would be fine. Well, they are not fine. Both will let rain water in when mounted this way as the drain hole is now on the side instead of bottom! I tried to caulk the holes, but caulk does not stick to the plastic. I used tape inside the housing with caulk sticking to it. Not sure how well that will work. I drilled new drain holes in the bottom. I replaced the lens screws with SS ones. I kept these only because I could not find anyone else selling them. They work, but my old ones had the clear lens welded to the housing and could be mounted anyway. These are cheap and the clear lens is snapped in with lots of gaps for water to come in. Not real happy with the results.

These lights are great trailer lights. Classic . I actually bought these for my 1955 international harvester r110 pickup. It is very close to what came on them from the factory. I hope that they dont change anything about them unless it is to go back to a 50s or 60s quality.

Needed to replace lights on my 25+ year utility trailer. Purchased two of these lights for both left hand and right hand since I don't have need for a license plate light. Exact replacement for my old lights except body of new lights is plastic, which in my opinion is better since the metal body of the old lights rusted out. Prompt delivery.

I had looked all over in my area for these trailer lights, but all trailer and automotive part outlets did not carry them anymore. A quick google and I found them right here at Etrailer.com. I ended up buying four just to make sure that I had replacements for the future. A big plus was that they were delivered two days early. Picture me with a happy face.

Ask the Experts about this Peterson Trailer Lights

  • Are Driver and Passenger Side Peterson Trailer Tail Lights Different
    That's a good question, but different tail lights are needed for the driver and passenger side for trailers, including the Peterson lights you asked about. The reason they are marked as "Driver Side" and "Passenger Side" is because the drivers side light has a bulb underneath which illuminates the license plate, as shown in the accompanying photo. So the lights you need are: - Driver Side: Peterson Trailer Tail Light # 432000 - Passenger Side: Peterson Trailer Tail Light # 431800 I...

    A 4-Way flat connector has the white wire for ground, brown wire for running lights, yellow wire for left turn and brake, and green wire for right turn and brake. The Peterson Round Trailer Tail Light, part # 431800, is a three function light and has two wires coming out of the rear. The brown wire is for running lights and the red wire is for turn signal and brake. The light is grounded to the trailer by the mounting studs on the light.

  • Availability of Stud Mounted Round LED Trailer Taillight
    Unfortunately, Peterson doesn't offer an LED version of the stud mounted # 431800 lamp you mentioned. For an LED stud mount lamp, I'd recommend the Optronics # STL9RB and # STL8RB. These lamps are a bit larger, and square, but they are a stud mounted LED taillight.

  • LED Replacement Light for 4 Inch Round Trailer Tail Light
    I have a solution for you. We don't have any LED lights that are a fit for the inside of that 4 inch cylinder. All of our LED options are linked and they are slightly bigger. What you can do is use an LED bulb in an incandescent fixture. For example, the Peterson Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Turn, Tail - Incandescent - Round - Red Lens - Passenger Side # 431800 in the attached video (with the 4 inch round tube) uses 1157 bulb so you can use # ARC63FR for an LED.

The brown wire is for running lights and the red wire is for turn signal and brake lights.

A 7-Way also has combined brake and turn signal circuits and a single running light circuit. On the trailer side connector, on the back...

  • What is the Difference Between the Right and Left Hand Versions of Peterson Round Trailer Lights
    The difference between the Peterson Round Trailer Tail Light Right Hand # 431800 and the Peterson Round Trailer Tail Light Left Hand # 432000 is that the left side # 432000 comes with a license plate bracket and has a light to illuminate the plate. You could mount part # 432000 and 431800 on either side of the trailer, but then the license plate of your trailer may not be illuminated. You will want to check your local laws to make sure that you can mount the license plate of your trailer...

  • Is the Running Lamp or Brake/Turn Signal Filament in 1157 Bulb Supposed to Be Brighter
    As far as what position they occupy in the bulb, I couldn't say. Dual filament bulbs like the # 30-90-157 have two different filaments. One filament is of a different resistance value, and thus makes a brighter light. but the brake and turn signal filament would be the brighter of the two. From what you describe, it certainly sounds as if you have the brake/turn signal and running lamp wire reversed.

You can run your ground wire and attach it to one of the mounting posts to make sure you get a good ground.

You could just tape off the red wire if you just want the running light function, or wire the red wire to the brake...

  • Can Peterson Round Trailer Tail Light Be Mounted Turned 90 Degrees
    The Peterson trailer tail light # 431800 does have a top and bottom, indicated on the back of the light. Normally a light does have to be mounted a certain way because otherwise the light being emitted may not be visible the way it is supposed to be as it exits the lens. But on this light I do not see that as an issue. Ideally though using an additional bracket as shown in the linked video would be the way to go. The left hand side matching light, # 432000, is a different story. It has...

The closest flange mounted lights are going to be the Peterson round tail lights # 431800 and # 432000. For a flush mounted light, you could use # 429800 which may be more what you are looking for.

  • Could Sealed, Uni-Lite Mini LED Side Marker and Clearance Light, # MCL11RKB Be Used as a Turn Signal
    You could use the Sealed, Uni-Lite Mini LED Side Marker and Clearance Light, # MCL11RKB, as a turn signal light. However, on most trailers, the brake and turn signal lights are usually on the same circuit. If you have this type of trailer, the light will light up with the brakes on. When turn signals are separate, you might want to consider an amber light, # MCL11AKB, as a turn signal. These lights would probably work well on a motorcycle trailer (a trailer towed behind a motorcycle)...
