Can 3 Function LED Light STL79RB Be Used for Stop, Turn, and Tail Lights on Both Sides of Trailer


I want to mount this product on a small trailer behind my pickup, Will it work for stop, turn and tail lights? I would like to put one on each side of the trailer. Is this possible and how? I already have the regular trailer plug installed. Thanks

Yes, the # STL79RB 3-function LED would work for stop, turn signal, and tail light functions on your trailer if you installed one on each side. If you look at the back of the light, you will see three wires, as pictured.

To install the lights, the white wire, equipped with a ring terminal, will be connected to a clean metal surface on the trailer frame, the black wire will be connected to the tail light circuit, and the red wire will connected to the brake and turn signal circuit. The lights can be mounted to the outside wall of the trailer using the 2 mounting holes at each end, which measure 16-1/8 inches from center to center. Electrical tape and butt connectors like part # 05732-2 would help you to keep the wire connections clean and secure. Alternatively, we do offer a trailer wiring installation kit, part # HM51020, that offers any items you would need to wire the trailer for towing.

You might additionally like to add a license plate holder with a light, like part # LP55CB.
