Converting Trailer Lights to LED Operation


have a pace arrow enclosed trailer with Bargman surface mount tail lights..Want to switch to LED.These lights are held in by a rubber grommet.Trailer maybe 10 years old..What do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

You have a couple of options for converting your Pace Arrow trailer lighting from incandescent to brighter high-efficiency LED operation.

One is to replace the entire set of lights with new LED-type fixtures, but another is simply to install replacement LED "bulbs" in place of the standard incandescent ones that are now in your Bargman lights. This option can be substantially less costly and also far easier since there is no wiring or other modifications needed; you'll simply pull out the incandescent bulbs and install appropriate LED equivalents in their place.

To help you decide which route to take I have linked both our main page for complete LED trailer lights and also our page for the LED equivalent "bulbs" which we offer for many different popular standard bulb types. Just find the bulb number(s) that are in your lights now, such as bulbs like the popular 1157 and 194 types as examples, and click on that bulb number on the linked page.

For example, in the 1157 bulb type we have red and white LEDs like # P231157R360 and # DI52VR.

I linked an article on the requirements for trailer lighting that might be of interest to you.
