Recommended Load Resistor for Installing Optronics LED Trailer Light STL43RB


Does this light need a resistor installed on a system that originally came with a normal bulb to avoid quick flashing?


Expert Reply:

When high-efficiency LED type lights are installed in place of power-hungry incandescent bulbs it is often necessary to install a load resistor. The resistor turns some of the incoming power into heat and in doing so it mimics the higher power draw of an incandescent bulb. This will prevent the hyper-flashing common when LEDs are installed in an incandescent lighting system.

For the Optronics Round LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light # STL43RB you can use their load resistor kit # ALEDRST1B which includes the 3-prong plug that matches the light.
