  • Availability of LED Clearance Lights That Replace the Peterson Rectangular Light # M152A
  • You are right that the Peterson Rectangular Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light # M152A is incandescent.

The black wire is for power and the white wire is for ground. I have attached a review video as well as an installation video that you can reference...

  • How To Install The Peterson Square Trailer Tail Light Part # 432400
  • I am assuming you are referring to the Peterson Square Trailer Tail Light part # 432400. If this is the case, on the back of the taillight assembly, there are 4 wire holes for each function located at the top of the tail light assembly. The top two holes are designed for a larger gauge wire whereas the bottom two are designed for a smaller gauge wire. In order to remove the old wires, you will first need to unhook the trailer connector from the vehicle. You can then insert a small screwdriver...

  • Measureing Light Grommet Size for Round Trailer Lights
  • I am sorry but at this time we do not stock a light grommet for a 3 inch round light. I checked with our supplier and they do not have a grommet for a 3 inch light either. If you are measuring the hole the grommet and light mounts in then you may have a 2-1/2 inch light and the mounting hole is 3 inches or close to it. If you measure the diameter of the light itself, this measurement will be the measurement you will need to select the proper grommet for your application. Our grommets...

  • Bulb Replacement For a Peterson 440 Trailer Tail Light
  • Both the Peterson Right Hand # 432200 and Left Hand # 432400 Square Trailer Tail Lights use either a 1157 # 30-90-157 or a 168 Incandescent Bulb. I confirmed this with my contact at Peterson.

  • Is there a Grommet for Peterson Clearance Light # M152A
  • For a rubber grommet that will fit the Peterson clearance light # M152A you can use # A91GB. If you are looking for the plastic base we do not carry that particular model and in that case I recommend switching to light # A91AB and using bracket # A91BB with power wire # A91LW (the light grounds through one of the mounting screws with this light and bracket combination).

  • Troubleshooting LED Lights On Cargo Trailer
  • The first thing you will want to do is to check all of the ground connections on the trailer. Each of the lights should be grounded to a clean, bare metal surface. If the ground wires all check out, you can start by checking the trailer connector on the vehicles. Have someone sit in the front of the vehicle and test each pin by function on the wiring harness with a circuit tester like part # 40376. If all of the pins on the vehicle check out, test the wires leading to the lights....

  • 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...

  • Recommended LED Wedge Clearance Light For Trailer
  • The closest LED light that we have to the # M116A is the Triangular LED Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light or Truck Cab Light, 15 Diode - Amber # CBL22AB. This has a wider design and is not reflective. This is a very nice light that I recommend if you are looking for an LED alternative to your current light. This is a submersible light. Unfortunately I think you will need to decide between LED and Reflective incandescent as you can't just change out the bulb on a sealed unit.

  • Recommendation for Bright, 2-1/2 Inch, Round, Trailer Tail and Clearance LED Lights
  • The Peterson Piranha LED 2-1/2 Inch Round Trailer Clearance Light, 3 Diode # 162R light that you referenced is certainly a bright trailer light. This 3 diode LED light will be brighter than a standard trailer light for you. I have attached a review video of the # 162R and the # 162A for you to see what the lights look like when they are on in the dark. The Peterson Piranha lights will install on the trailer using a 2-wire pigtail and grommet, # 162-18K. These LED light will work great...

  • How to Remove Old Butt Connector to Install New Trailer Tail Lights
  • Thank you for the order or the Peterson # 425400 and # 436800 tail lights! When a butt connector is used to connect your wiring you will simply need to cut the butt connector off on the trailer side. You should be able to see some metal inside the butt connector that has been crimped down. Try to cut the wiring as close to that as possible so that you don't lose too much of it. Once the wire is cut just strip some of it back and use new butt connectors for the installation. I recommend...

  • The Peterson Piranha part # 168A is one of our submersible trailer lights so it will be safe to use on a boat trailer. We carry almost 100 submersible LED trailer lights and I will provide a link to a page that has them all. You could use a number of different lights to go between your trailer taillights. You could use part # 168R which is a red version of the light you asked about. We also have long light bars like part # MCL70RB that will cover more distance of the rear face of the...

  • Replacement Lenses for Peterson 440-151 Trailer Lights and Wiring Harness for 2017 Mazda CX-5
  • The correct replacement for your 440-151 lights is Peterson Replacement Lens # 55-15R. Although the original lenses do not have screw holes there are entry points for the screws on the mount which you will see when you take off the original lens. As for the lights themselves, they would be incandescent and not LED.

  • Side Marker Lens Recommendation for a Peterson Taillight Assembly PM440
  • The Peterson Replacement Lens # 55-15R is the correct replacement side marker lens for your trailer lights part # 432200. Screw holes are beneath the original tail light side marker lenses for use with this replacement lens. In the manufacturing process, when the lights are being assembled, the side lights are snapped in via machinery, however, when they need to be replaced, they do need to be screwed into place.

  • Replacement Round LED Trailer Tail Light for a Peterson Round Tail Light
  • The Peterson part number # 420-15 that you referenced is a replacement lens for the Peterson Round Trailer Tail Light # 431800 which has a 3-3/4" diameter. Although we don't have an exact match to this in LED we do have slightly larger sizes of round tail lights that come as LED. If you are wanting to go with one from Peterson then we have the LED Trailer Light # M826R-7 which has an overall diameter of 5-1/2" but the light diameter is only 4-1/4". The grommet # 426-18 and 3-prong plug...

  • Is There A Specific Angle Necessary To Meet Side Reflector Requirements?
  • The Amber Rectangular Microprismatic Reflector # B489A can be mounted to anything that will accept its adhesive. I've attached an article outlining the requirements for trailer lighting and reflectors. There are not limits that I'm aware of on the angle of the reflector. You will need to contact your local Department of Motor Vehicles to see if there are State specific requirements.

  • Replacement Side Lens Recommendation for Petersen Trailer Light 440 15R
  • I spoke with my contact at Peterson and she said replacement lens part # 444-151R is the correct replacement lens for both right and left side lenses of the light you mentioned. You can see what looks like screw holes for this lens but what really holds the lens on is the clips.

  • Troubleshooting Right Turn Signal/Brake Circuit on Trailer Towed By 2003 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The first thing you'll do is determine if the problem lies in the truck or the trailer wiring. Unplug the trailer, and have a helper activate the right turn signal. Use a circuit tester like part # 40376 to test the pin on the trailer connector for the right turn/brake signal. If you get signal on that pin wile the right turn signal is activated or the brake pedal is pressed, the problem lies in the trailer wiring. If you get no signal, you probably have a blown fuse. The tow package...

  • Troubleshooting Left Turn Signal on Wells Cargo Trailer Towed by Dodge Durango
  • I would begin by troubleshooting the trailer connector on your Durango. Have a helper activate the left turn signal, and use a circuit tester like part # 40376 on the connector pin that powers the left turn. If you have a 4-pole trailer connector, it is the pin fed by the yellow wire. If you have a 7-way connector, check the pin in the 9:00 position. With the turn signal active, the trailer connector pin should light up and blink along with the turn signal. This pin should also light up...

  • Replacement Tail Light Cover Needed for a Peterson 440 Trailer Tail Light
  • The Peterson DOT AIST 90 that you referenced has to do with how the light was tested, but I do know what light you are talking about. It is commonly known as a Peterson 440 light and we have them listed as part # 432200 for the right hand (passenger) side and part # 432400 for the left hand (driver) side. The only real difference between these 2 parts is that the driver's side light has a clear piece below it that illuminates your license plate. The red lens cover for both lights is...

  • Replacement Amber Clearance Light for a Peterson PM 150
  • Sealed lights would have to be replaced since there is not easy way to get them open and maintain functionality of the light. Your light looks similar to # A91AB. This light measures 2-1/2 inches across, 1-3/16 inches tall and 7/8 inches deep. It mounts in base # A91BB and can use harness # A91LW.
