Replacing Running Light On Top of 2005 Alpenlite Aspen Travel Trailer For a 3RD Brake Light

Question:

Hello, I have a 2005 Alpenlite Aspen Series 26RB Travel Trailer. We currently have a Bargman 30-99-111 Rear Identification Light Bar with 2 MR16 35W Spot Lights. I am looking to replace that fixture with LED. However, I am having a hard time locating this light anywhere on the market. I am guessing it is discontinued as I cannot find it in Bargmans current catalog. So i was looking at some options like the #328-003-6017R or the 47-54-001. The 30-99 in its configuration that came stock on this trailer was only wired for identification markers. So I want to upgrade to a LED Taillight that is similar and would work as a Third Brake/Turn Signal as well. I know that I would have to run wires to the existing Brake/Turn signals at the rear. But I am scratching my head on how to wire the three wires from these two lights for individual turn signals. My trailers brake/turn signals are fed from two separate powers wires from the 7-way. Also trying to figure out if when the brake is activated, will the turn signal to these lights still flash? Do you have any recommendations or wiring ideas?

To convert your current running light to also act as a 3rd brake light on your 2005 Alpenlite Aspen 26RB Travel Trailer you will need a Pacer 3rd Brake Light Logic Module # PP20-702 to wire in your harness.

With either the Hot-Line LED Third Brake Trailer Light Bar # 328-003-6017R or Bargman Narrow LED Trailer Tail Light # 47-54-001 you will be able to make this work as a 3rd brake light.

You are going to already have power for the running lights (brown wire on Bargman, black wire on Hot-Line) and ground (white wires both lights) at your mount for the running light. The brake light (red wires both lights) will attach to the green wire on the Pacer 3rd Brake Light Logic Module # PP20-702. The 2 yellow wires from the module need to connect separately to the left turn/brake light wire and right turn/brake light wire at your tail lights.

I recommend making your connections with Heat Shrink Butt Connectors # DW05744-5 and you will need 16 Gauge Wire # DW02359-1 for connecting the 3rd brake light to the tail lights.
