Peterson Piranha 171A LED Clearance Marker Light Dimensions

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 Mini LED Clearance or Side Marker Light Installation

Hi there trailer owners today, we're going to be taking a look at Peterson's Pirana mini LED side marker and clearance lights. These lights are available in either an Amber color for your side markers or red for clearance lights at the back of your trailer. These are going to be a great upgrade if you've got limited space or need low profile side marker, or clearance lights on your trailer. They don't take up very much, they're about an inch in diameter and they just press in, they have a grommet. So it's like a lot of your trailer lights, except for these are significantly smaller. And these are an upgrade because they're going to be brighter than your incandescent lights, which take up more space, stick out, farther, use more power, and don't last as long.

So you can upgrade to an LED one here. That's going to last significantly longer, provide more visibility at night, and not take up very much real estate. It really modernizes it being nice and flush against the trailer.We're going to start our installation by removing our old marker light. We're going to be replacing it with this newer, smaller, lower profile LED light. There's just a single stud here on the back that has a nut on it for this light.

I'm just going to remove that, in a lot of cases this is just going to break off these old incandescent lights are pretty common of just having rust issues and stuff like that. So we can just set that guy aside. We're not going to install the new light into here, but you can see that the hole there's going to be too small. So we're going to use a step bit to enlarge this hole until it's big enough for our light to pass through. And this is just a press fit.

So once we get it drilled out properly, it's just going to poop pop in there. So here's our step bit. We're just going to enlarge it until it fits. This is the easiest way to do it, to ensure that you get a good tight fitSo we're just going to do a quick check. We're still not quite there.

So now that we've got it drilled out to the right size we can see it's going to be snug, but if we give it a push, we should be able to get this in here. And we want it to be nice and snug so that's kind of what we're looking for. It's a little bit too snug, we might need to just go back in there real quick and just hit it just to clean up some of the rougher edges. Once we get it nice and flush and to where it holds in there nice and solid. We've now got that installed and we just need to hook up our wiring. We stripped it back and then placed a ring terminal on it. You can get ring terminals here at etrailer, we're then just going to ground this wire by running it right into the frame. And we can do so right here.The brown wire that's passed through the small hole here is our running light circuit. So we had just stripped that back. So we got a nice clean connection point to it. And we're just going to connect the black wire from our white, to the running light circuit on our trailer. We're using heat shrink butt connectors to do this, which are available here at etrailer. To ensure that we don't get any moisture entering down to our wires, which can cause corrosion. So we're not going to take our heat gun to shrink that connector down. I'm just going to keep out all that moisture.And then if you picked up any red marker lights for the rear of your trailer, they're going to install exactly the same. So we've gone ahead and installed some here at the back. And we installed some on the side, which we're Amber for closer to the front of our trailer. Now that they're installed, we're just going to hook up our test box. You can hook it up to your truck, turning your tail lights and make sure everything's working properly. So here you can see our rear marker lights are working properly and our Amber ones are good to go as well. And that completes our look at Peterson's Pirana mini LED side, marker and clearance lights.

Light was exactly what I needed and install was not difficult at all. Order wells on time and came properly packaged. Customer Service from etrailer was outstanding as usual.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


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.


Comments
All lights are working! Made one important change due to use in salt water. I ran all ground wires to the front of my boat trailer, so that the ground wire connections to the trailer would not be submerged when launching and retrieving my boat.

The 168R side marker light paired with the B168-18 mounting gasket were easy to mount and work perfectly.

Their videos and reviews are invaluable.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer 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.

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.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


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.
