Difference Between The Optronics Trailer Lights # STL16RB and # STL26RB


Whats the difference between STL16RB and STL26RB? They both say waterproof but whats the difference between submersible and waterproof? I also need a light with a replaceable lens. Thanks!


Expert Reply:

Both the Optronics Trailer Lights, part # STL16RB, and part # STL26RB are able to go under water.

The definition of waterproof means that the unit will not let water in after being under water for a certain period. Since both lights are LED lights, the diodes are in a sealed unit of their own, which water cannot enter. The Optronics Light # STL16RB is labeled submersible, because it has a replaceable lens, but the diodes are sealed.

Both lights can be used on trailers over 80 inches wide, and both are LED lights. Part # STL16RB uses 18 diodes, where part # STL26RB uses 14 diodes.

Since you want a light with a replaceable lens, you will want to use the Optronics Trailer Lights, part # STL16RB.

For a replacement lens for the # STL16RB light, you will need to use the Replacement Tail Light Lens, part # AL16RB. For the replacement side lens of the light, you will need Replacement Side Marker Lens, part # AL17RB.
