Default Where to get good submersable trailer lights.

Been having some problems with my lights on the trailer and want to find out if there are any better ones to use. Also, are they making LED lights for trailers yet?

GROTE MAKE SUBMERSABLE LITES SO DOES TRUCKMATE . BOTH OF THESE ARE SEALBEAM LITES . INEXPENSIVE AS COMPAIRED TO L.E.D. BUT STILL NAT AS CHEAP AS AN 1157 BULB. MOST SEMI TRAILER PLACES HANDLE THEM. DON'T BE SO CHEAP !!!!!

I tried calling ledtek, but apparently they are out of business.
I found a few others and may even try to make some type of custom set up using the lights from the truck trailers.
So. Cruboss, how was the weekend? Didn't know you were getting back so soon.

Sounds like an oxymoron- good submersible trailer lights. You know like military intelligence, good government, etc.

I just put LEDs on mine. Waterproof and long life. There is a kit in Overton's, Boaters World, and probably West Marine for $59.00. It is a complete kit including wires.

When we rewired our trailer we used the LED lighting all around. Looks great and no problems all this season.

Default LED's Rule

My Best friend got me a set of Peterson (the best ones you can get 10 led stop, tail, and turn Petersen #423R) and amber #160A and red #160R marker lights for my Integrity trailer-THEY ARE AWESOME, less amp draw than conventional bulbs or sealed beams and one helluva lot brighter, plus they are sealed a lot better than my old Wesbar lights. Peterson is also the parent company of Anderson lighting that you see in the boat magazines, but I think the Peterson stuff is a lot better, comes with the packard connectors(waterproof) and a ground for each light-the way lights should be hooked up in the first place. I have a catalog and can probably get you a deal through Mark if you're interested.

http://www.pmlights.com/

just go to this link and then to the Pirahna LED section the 423R 's come with a flange mount if you have thos big square Wesbars, or you can use an oval grommet depending on how your trailer is set up
