Extreme Trailer, Lights

Recommended Posts

Bozboat

I have an Extreme Trailer with standard lights. For just under $100 I bought two Optronics LED taillights, seven red Optronics LED marker lights and four yellow Optronics LED marker lights

Pretty easy, half hour switch. Just popped out the old lights and popped in the new ones. Plugs are identical.

the only hitch was that there is not enough clearance in the beam that holds the taillights. The new LED lights are more recessed which did not leave enough clearance for the plug.

I flipped the rubber gasket around and installed the gasket in the trailer backwards and popped in the new LED taillights. The new tail lights are actually a better fit with the gasket backwards than the original lights.

oh, and no stimulus money was consumed by this project.

Our new trailer came with those same LED's if I'm not mistaken. Well worth it.

The optronics LEDs are easily 15-20x brighter

I put the same lights in my SMP trailer last year. Ran into the same problem with the depth of the tube causing trouble with the fit. I will have to check out flipping the gasket over to get the extra clearance.
