Peterson M540 Trailer Light Kit Dimensions

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.

All the items were quickly delivered and in great shape upon arrival. Only complaint is that there were no instructions for installation. That’s fine for people who know what they’re doing but I’m not that guy. A simple set of instructions would be helpful. 771077

Much better than the cheap made in China ones that I have tried before. This set is very good quality, and a robust wire harness, unlike some of the newer Chinese versions I have purchased. I would expect to get about 5-10 years out of this set. 767884

It sounds like there may be an issue with the wiring harness on the vehicle or the trailer wiring that is keeping these lights from functioning, so I'll give you a couple of troubleshooting...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring for 5x10 Trailer with 4-Way Trailer Connector
    If you have a 4-way trailer connector like # 118418 then I recommend using a wishbone harness to wire your trailer. The 20 Ft 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness - Wishbone Style - 30" Ground # A20WB is my recommendation for your wiring because it will allow you to run 2 wired to each side.
