Rear Clearance Light Requirements for Trailers Over 80 Inches Wide


I dont see the Marker Lights for the center rear of trailer, are they included and just not shown?


Expert Reply:

The trailer light kit, # TL36RK, only comes with 2 marker/clearance lights in addition to the wiring and tail lights. Trailer light kit # TL16RK comes with 2 additional reflectors, not lights, that you could place as needed.

I was looking through the federal requirements for lights and reflectors for various types and size trailers and found that AMBER clearance or marker lights are not a requirement for the center rear of the vehicle but RED clearance lights are required.

Exactly 3 are needed and they need to be placed on the rear of the trailer at the top, 6 to 12 inches apart facing rearward. To make it simple, you could use # MC94RB.
