Choosing The Right Trailer Lights And Accessories

If you're ever driving a trailer, it's important to have functioning trailer lights. Here we'll discuss the different types of lights available, as well as how to wire them up. We'll also provide a few tips on keeping your trailer lights in good condition.

Types of trailer lights

LED TRAILER LIGHTS

Led lighting is a great option because it is cost-effective and long-lasting. Led lights are also much brighter than traditional incandescent bulbs, making them more visible to other drivers.

INCANDESCENT

Incandescent lights are less expensive than LED lights, but they don't last as long. These lights are slowly going obsolete as there are very inefficient and costly in the long run.

Where do you need lights on a trailer?

There is a range of lights you could use on a trailer.:

DRIVING LIGHTS

Driving lights can be used to supplement your trailer's tail lights. They are typically mounted on the front of the trailer and help drivers see your trailer in low light conditions.

BRAKE LIGHTS

Brake lights indicate to drivers behind you when you are slowing down or stopping

TAIL LIGHTS

Tail lights help drivers see the outline of your trailer in low light conditions

SIDE MARKERS OR MARKET LIGHTS

Marker lights are used to help identify the edges of your trailer. They are generally required on trailers that are wider than 80 inches.

REFLECTORS

A trailer reflector light is a device that reflects light back to the source, providing greater visibility for the driver. Trailer reflectors are required by law in many states, and are a good idea even if they're not required where you live.

NUMBER PLATE LIGHT

A trailer number plate light is a light that is mounted on the rear of a trailer, usually near the license plate. The purpose of the light is to illuminate the license plate so that it can be easily seen at night. Trailer number plate lights are required by law in some states.

FRONT MARKER LIGHT

A front marker light is not required on all boat trailers, but it can be a good safety measure. This light helps other drivers see the front of your trailer in low-light conditions.

BOAT TRAILER LIGHTS

Lights for traditional and boat trailer perform the same function, the primary difference is that boat lights must be able to function when completely underwater when you are loading and unloading your boat.

Maintaining Trailer Lights

It's also important to make sure that the connections are clean and tight. Over time, dirt and moisture can build up on the connections, causing them to corrode. This can lead to poor electrical contact and intermittent lighting.

The following tips will help you make sure your trailer lights are in good condition:

1. Check the connections regularly and clean them if necessary

2. Test the lights regularly

3. Inspect the lights for damage and replace any damaged parts

4. Keep an eye on the condition of the wiring

5. Make sure the bulbs are properly secured in their sockets

6. Never use a higher wattage bulb than what is recommended by the manufacturer

7. Store the trailer lights in a dry, protected place when not in use

8. Check the owner's manual for specific maintenance recommendations.

Trailer Lights Accessories:

PLUGS

The most common type of trailer plug used in Australia is the seven-pin flat plug. Other popular options include the seven-pin round plug, and the twelve-pin flat plug.

SEVEN-PIN FLAT PLUG

A seven-pin flat plug is a type of connector that has seven prongs arranged in a flat, rectangular shape. This type of plug is typically used on trailers that are hauling livestock or construction equipment.

SEVEN-PIN ROUND PLUG

A seven-way round plug is a type of connector that has seven circular prongs arranged in a circle. This type of plug is typically used on larger trailers, such as those that are hauling livestock or construction equipment.

TWELVE-PIN FLAT PLUG

A twelve-pin flat plug is a type of connector that has twelve prongs arranged in a flat, rectangular shape. This type of plug is typically used on large trailers, such as those that are hauling boats or caravans.

CABLE SYSTEM

The most common type of trailer light cable used in Australia is the seven-wire system. This system includes a white wire for the ground, a black wire for the tail lights, a green wire for the right turn signal, a brown wire for the left turn signal, a yellow wire for the brake lights, and an additional brown wire for the running lights.

Other accessories

In addition to the plugs and cables, you'll also need a few other accessories to properly install trailer lights. These include light mounts, which are used to attach the lights to the trailer; wiring harnesses, which connect the lights to the vehicle's electrical system; and trailers hitches, which are used to connect the trailer to the vehicle.
