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 - Tail Lights - V457L Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Peterson rectangular trailer tail light with the license plate illuminator. This red rectangular trailer light serves five functions, stop, turn, tail, rear reflex, and license plate light. It features a rugged corrosion resistant bulb socket. It contains one incandescent bulb. It's a really nice polar white base. It also features the red snap on replaceable lens.

You can see the holds here at the side, so when you're needing to remove this for your installation, you will need to remove this to gain access to the mounting holes. All you've got to do is push in on those tabs, and then the lens will snap off. This is designed for the driver's side or left hand side of the trailer. If you need a matching light for the passenger side, you can find that at Etrailer.com with part number V457. It is sold separately.This is designed for horizontal mounting.

Mounting hardware not included. Here on the back, you'll notice that it features a two wire design. Your green wire is for the stop and turn signals, brown wire is for the tail lights, and then located right here it says, "Ground screws", so you will need to provide a ground screw. Then the ground screw would connect to a metal base that's inside there. It provides your ground connection at the installation area.

The product is made in the USA. It's Department of Transportation compliant.A few measurements that we'll go over with you real quick, and then we'll hook it up to power, that way you can see what it looks like. Edge to edge, this direction, it's going to give us a measurement of eight and thirteen-sixteenths of an inch long. Overall height, about five and one-sixteenth of an inch tall. The overall depth, that's front to back, measures about two and three-quarters of an inch deep.

The license plate bracket holes are separated on center by seven inches. Then when it comes to the mount holes right here, up and down they're separated on center by about two and nine-sixteenths of an inch to two and five-eighths of an inch. Side-to-side they're separated on center by six and three-quarter inches.We're going to go ahead and hook it up to power, that way you can see what it looks like with some power running to it. For demonstration purposes, I'm just going to place on a screw here for a temporary ground connection. Again, the green is the stop and turn. Black is the tail lights. Turn off our overhead lights. You can see here it sends out a pretty nice, consistent signal. It does have a glow here at the bottom, which would illuminate the license plate. Then when we apply our brakes, you can see how that increases the signal output. It's going to do that same thing when we activate our turn signals. That's going to do it for today's look at the Peterson rectangular trailer tail light.

Do you have a question about this Trailer Light?


  • Installation of Peterson Rectangular Stop/Tail/Turn/Reflex Trailer Tail Light V457L
  • RV makers do not maintain details/specs on the smaller items like tail lights that they install when fabricating their RVs. The USA-made Peterson Rectangular Stop/Tail/Turn/Reflex Trailer Tail Light # V457L is for the driver-side of a trailer and it includes mounting tabs for your license plate. The matching passenger-side item is # V457; it does not have tabs for the plate. Both lights also have four mounting holes on their white plastic bases. These can be seen if you click on the...

  • Grounding Peterson Trailer Tail Light Part # V457L to Trailer Frame
  • The Peterson Trailer Tail Light # V457L that you referenced is designed to ground through the mounting hardware which means that a bolt runs through the base which is attached to the ground circuit of the light and when it contacts the metal frame of your trailer the ground circuit is complete. If you wanted to ground this light with a wire you'd need to run the ground wire to the bolt you use to attach the light between the base and the trailer frame. The white wire on your 7-way wiring...
