Manufacturer Cross Reference

Light will work as an exact replacement for:

Truck Lite # 18060Y and 18070Y

Optronics # MCL48AB


Peterson 353A Piranha LED 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.


PC-Rated Lights

Diagram of light spread for PC rated light

A PC-rated light produces a 90-degree angle of light to either side of its centerline for a total of 180 degrees of coverage. This beam pattern can be clearly seen when you are standing directly in front of the light, as well as when you are standing on either side of the light. When properly installed, this type of light can function as both a front clearance light and a side marker light or as a rear clearance light and 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.

Ordered these to replace side marker lights on a deckover trailer. Works a lot better than incandescent lights, and much brighter.



by:

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.

The service was great and the parts fit perfectly and work great.

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.

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.

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

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.

LIghts still working a year later

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.

Small in size, but very bright. Lights were sealed well on the back and have plenty of pigtail length. Very happy with the light and price. Great value as long as they hold up over time.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer 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.

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.

Ask the Experts about this Peterson Trailer Lights



  • Is There a Light Bezel for the Peterson Piranha LED Clearance and Side Marker Trailer Light
    There is one option, though there isn't an exact chrome bezel made for the Peterson Piranha LED Clearance and Side Marker Trailer Light with Turn Signals # M353R (Red Lens) or # M353A (Amber Lens). The Chrome Bezel # A48CB is designed to fit 6" long x 2-1/4" tall lights while the Peterson are 6" long x 2" tall so they will be a little short so I can't absolutely guarantee they will work, but they are the closest option. Otherwise, these lights will attach to your trailer without a bezel,...

  • Is Trailer Clearance Lamp for MC76AB Available With Red Lens
    Optronics used to offer the # MC76AB lamp with a red lens but it's been discontinued and is no longer available. We do offer a similar replacement, part # M353R that's the same 6 x 2 inch size as the # MC76AB and also has very similar mounting hole spacing of 4-3/4 inches so it would be a good replacement for the original. It's also available with an amber lens as part # M353A.

  • How to Wire Peterson Amber LED Clearance Light to Illuminate Only with Turn Signals and Not Brakes
    If the wiring is combined on your trailer for the brake and turn signal circuit, then the Amber Piranha LED Clearance Light # M353A that you referenced will illuminate with either function activated. This will not have the ability to split the signals and only illuminate brightly with the turn signals. If you aren't wanting this light to illuminate with the brake signal, then you will just need to add a converter like # RM-732. You will want to splice this to the wiring at the front of...

  • Rectangle LED Clearance Light with Both Red and Amber Lenses
    I do have an option for you but the Miro-Flex LED Trailer Side Marker Light and Mid-Ship Turn Signal is not offered with a red lens, only amber part # MCL48AB and clear part # MCL48CAB. For a similar clearance light has turn signal capabilities I recommend the Peterson Piranha LED Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light w/ Supplemental Turn part # M353R which if you wanted to use this instead is also offered in amber as part # M353A.

  • Can LED Clearance Light on Trailer be Used as Turn Signals
    Thank you for your purchase of the LED Clearance and Side Marker Trailer Light # MCL81RB from etrailer, and while there are clearance lights that can blink along with turn signals, unfortunately 2-wire lights like this one are unable to do so. What you will need instead are 3-wire clearance lights designed to also work as turn signals, and there are both red and amber surface-mounted lights that are available. - Red: Peterson Piranha LED Clearance and Side Marker Trailer Light with Turn...

  • Replacing Peterson PM130 Incandescent Trailer Lights with LED Versions
    I will be happy to help you find the right LED replacement lights for your horse trailer. Based on the information you have provided the amber LED replacement is # MCL76AB. The red version is # MCL76RB. Another option is to use Peterson lights # M353A and # M353R. Since lights can sometimes go through design changes the new lights may not have the exact same dimensions as the old lights so that would be why you see slight differences in the measurements between your old lights and these lights.

  • Trailer Wiring and Lights For Rewiring 5' X 8' Trailer With Reverse Lights And Side Marker Lights
    Both the Peterson Piranha LED Clearance and Side Marker Trailer Light w/ Turn Signal # M353A and Miro-Flex LED Trailer Side Marker Light and Mid-Ship Turn Signal # OPT78FR are sold individually. We do not offer them as a pair for lower price. Since you mentioned replacing your wiring the 25 Ft 5-Way Trailer Wiring Harness # A25W5B is a great starting point. You will need to add additional 20 gauge wire to run the reverse line circuit back to the tail lights. You will need the Tow Ready...
