Put these on an old boat trailer. Came out great. I got some white 16 gage stranded wire to carry the ground out to each mounting place. Helps the lights stay on even when stuff gets rusty.

Ordered this with two new fenders for our Roadmaster RM3477 Tow Dolly. Both fenders had been destroyed due to blowouts. Replacing the fenders was easy and this wiring package made the lighting installation a snap. Highly recommended!



by: 05/20/2022

Seems to be good quality. Just installed them to replace some poor rigging by the person who owned the trailer previously.
I will change the nuts to neoprene locknut. I like they are made in the USA
Thanks



by:

This is an excellent product and simple to install. As long as you have a functioning plug-in on your vehicle you’ll be happy.
Time will tell how well it holds up to water and vibration



by:

Bought these lights to mount on Hollywood e-bike rack because cover for bikes doesn’t allow tail lights on vehicle to shine through properly Ordered these and received product very fast considering Christmas and Covid backups Have not installed them yet but I know they will be a great fit Plenty of time to get everything mounted for our trip from Ny to Florida in February Thanks again etrailer



by:

So overall I would recommend these! The product seems a little bit like "you get what you pay for." They don't seem to be of the highest quality but for the price, getting submersible trailer lights that are down and dirty and work, they seem great.
They are on my 4X8 utility trailer and they were easy to wire and install. They do come with wire nuts to make the wire connections and I replaced them with inline waterproof wire connectors but the wire nuts would have worked just fine. Again, overall, the kit had everything you would need to make these lights work.


Comments
Thank you for your review. It sounds like you have a classic ground issue. These particular lights ground through the mounting studs so make sure they are attached to a clean bare metal surface.

Always very happy with products and ser vices!

Absolutely fastest shipping. Excellent quality and easy install. Used old wires to feed through frame and only took a couple of hours. Thanks for great merchandise.



by:

This light kit worked perfectly on my trailer. Great service and fast shipping.



by:

Excellent service as always. Made my re-wiring job as simple as could be.



by:

Easy to install just follow the instruc tions.



by:

We recently came across a trailer and jet skis. The wiring on the trailer did not work. Came to etrailer and found exactly what I needed. Will be ready to go come spring



by: 07/19/2021

Submersible? NO. First time the trailer was backed into the lake one of the stop light bulbs shattered.

Rewired my 8x4 bed trailer, and chose these fo mo betta rain proof. EZ wiring, they're working fine!


Comments
Ok, had an issue with the bulb socket for brake and turn signal. Those socket designs date back to the stone age. Hard to set the bulb for proper electrical contact. Badly needs an updated design.

Order arrived today safe and damage free. Great light and wiring kit for the price!



by:

Exactly what I needed to “float my boat” again.



by:

They look great but I have not hooked them up yet



by:

Easy installation. Worked properly immediately. Use this video: https://www.etrailer.com/tv-review-optronics-trailer-light-kit-tl5rk.aspx. In the video the guy extends the ground wire just a little bit and I found that I also needed to do that. He also uses separately purchased connectors and I chose to take his advice about them.



by:

The Submersible, Under 80" Trailer Light Kit with 25' Wiring Harness kit that I purchased worked well for my application. I had an old, broken set of lights on my trailer. I found this kit from Optronics on etrailer and after reviewing the pictures, diagrams and information listed on your website, I knew this would be a great replacement for the OEM lights that came on the trailer. I received the kit in the time listed for my shipping selection and once I got the kit, I was able to install all of the lights and wires with ease. This is a great kit from Optronics and had all of the components I needed to make sure anyone behind me knows when I am stopping and turning. Thank you employees of etrailer for helping me get the product that I needed.

Best Price i found



by:

Thanks ETrailer for making my boat trailer restoration a success . I restored a 1960 boat trailer to look brand new with your help.



by:

I love the Item I purchased, very easy to install and got it a very good price. Two years or so ago I bought a front mount trailer hitchfrom E-trailer and got the best price and free shipping which was incrdible. I will always buy my trailer/hitch needs from etrailer.com. In fact I'm a retired NYC correction officer and attend union meetings as a retiree and will at the next meeting recommend etrailer.com to everyone there.. thanks for being a reliable company with the best prices on the net or anywhere else for that matter..

While there was more here than I needed (the trailer was already wired, it just had broken lights), getting this package was the cheapest and best way to get what I needed...exact, drop in replacements. Shipping was quick...your service is outstanding. That is why I will be getting another package today (which I ordered the day after I ordered the lights), and is the reason I keep going back to etrailer.com. Great prices, great service and if you ever have to talk with anyone they are the nicest people in the world. Thanks!

  • Difference Between Trailer Taillight Kits that are for Over 80 inches in Width and Under 80 inches
    There are different taillight requirements for trailers that are over 80 inches in width vs. ones that aren't over 80 inches in width. If you check out the link I attached you will see all of these differenced highlighted. The over 80 inch kits like the part # TL16RK typically come with additional clearance lights when compared to the under 80 kits like the # TL5RK. I attached review videos for both kits for you to check out.

  • How to the Lights in Trailer Light Kit TL5RK Ground to the Trailer
    The lights included with light kit # TL5RK ground through the mounting studs. The light grounds should also be attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. If there is anything between a light ground and the metal trailer frame or if the trailer has an aluminum frame, tilt bed, or folding tongue, any of these things can interrupt the ground. Running jumper wires from the light grounds to the main trailer connector ground can help. It does sound like a weak ground connection....

  • Type of Wiring Harness that Comes with the Optronics Submersible Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK
    The wiring harness that comes with the Optronics Submersible Trailer Light Kit, # TL5RK, is a wishbone wiring harness meaning there are 5 wires coming out of the back of the 4-pole flat connector. You will have one white wire for the ground, one yellow wire for the left turn and brake signals, one green wire for the right turn and brake signals and two brown wires for the tail lights. The reason there are two brown wires for the tail lights is to make it easier for you to run the wires...

  • What is the Wire Gauge on the 4-Way Wiring Harness for Optronics Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK
    I measured the wire gauge on the Optronics light kit # TL5RK and the wires are 18 gauge. This is measured on just the copper strands with the insulation stripped off.

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a Trailer Less than 80 inches Towed by a 1992 Ford Explorer
    The Optronics Trailer Light kit # TL5RK that you referenced would be an excellent choice for you and would work very well on your trailer towed by your 1992 Ford Explorer with the only exception is that the wiring is 18 gauge instead of 16 gauge like you said you preferred. I can assure you though that this wiring kit will work well for you and the amperage draw would not be too much for the wiring.

  • Connecting Trailer Side Marker Lights to Trailer Wiring Harness
    The marker lights would tie into the running light circuit, which is carried by the brown wire on the trailer wiring harness. I've linked you to a trailer wiring diagram, and also to our trailer wiring FAQ article.

  • Is Submersible, Under 80" Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK Sealed from Water
    While the wires and portions of the internals of the Submersible, Under 80" Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK are exposed to water when the ligth is submerged all of the important parts of the light and circuits are sealed so nothing gets damaged. So the water will fill in the assembly but then drain out without damage.

  • Troubleshooting Running Light Circuit Not Working On Right Side of Trailer
    The blinker/brake lights are carried on one circuit and the running lights are on a totally different one. Since the stop/turn circuits seem to work on the left side but the running lights on that side do not you need to check the wiring of the running light circuit that runs to that side of the trailer and fix as needed. I attached a diagram of how a trailer is normally wired as well as a help article that covers troubleshooting trailer wiring as well.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Lights that Work Intermittently
    Since they work then stop working most likely you have dirty pins on your trailer connectors which is causing the connection to be intermittent. Since it's both sides of the trailer it's probably the ground circuit. Your generation of Chevy truck is notorious for the third brake light fuse going out. You might check under the hood to verify if that circuit is solid still.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights that All Come On When Key Is Turned On
    The issue you are having is the circuit you chose to power the running lights circuit of your trailer 7-way. If that circuit sees voltage when the key is turned on and your trailer is connected then all of the trailer lights will illuminate when the key is turned on. You need to find a circuit that only sees voltage when the running lights/head lights are on to run to the brown wire. The running light circuit of your truck should work well. I attached a couple help articles on trailer...

  • Newly Installed Trailer Tail Lights Work but Are Very Dim
    Dim trailer lights can be a symptom of a bad ground or wiring harness connection. Make sure that the vehicle side and trailer side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. The main connector grounds should be attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. The light grounds should also be attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. If there is anything between a light ground and the metal trailer frame or if the trailer has an aluminum frame, tilt...

  • Both Portable Lights Flash On Tow Vehicle When Hooked Up to RV
    It sounds like you are using magnetic lights like part # TL21RK on your towed vehicle that has a 4-pin that connects to a 7 to 4 pin connector at the RV. I recommend to check all of the wiring for frays or damaged wiring to make sure there is not a short that is allowing 2 functions to get a signal at the same time so the magnetic lights light up at the same time. What type of adapter are you using and did you use it before this started happening? It makes me think the problem is a short...

  • Troubleshooting Boat Trailer Lights That Don't Work When Vehicle Headlights Are Turned On
    It sounds like what you're describing could be an issue with the ground wire on the trailer-either a short or an insufficient connection. This is a common cause of lights working initially but then malfunctioning when another load is added to the mix. I would start with checking the ground wire on the trailer to make sure that it is firmly connected to a paint and corrosion free spot on the trailer; it would also be worth checking the ground wire on your vehicle's wiring harness at this...

  • How do Tail Lights in Submersible Trailer Tail Light Kit Secure to Trailer
    The Submersible, Under 80" Trailer Light Kit with 25' Wiring Harness # TL5RK has mounting studs, nuts included, that are 2 inches on center for mounting to a metal mounting bracket. The bracket must be attached securely to the trailer frame because the lights in this kit get their ground connection through the mounting studs. I have included an installation video and a video review of this light kit for you to check out as well.

  • Running Lights Not Working on Trailer After Installation of Optronics Trailer Light Kit # TL5RK
    There are many possible reasons why the running lights are not working on your trailer when using the Optronics Trailer Light Kit, part # TL5RK. First, I recommend checking the ground connections. The trailer lights on this kit will ground through the mounting studs. They will need to be attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface. You will also want to make sure that the main ground from the trailer connector is attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface....

  • Can Trailer Tail Light Kits with a 4-Way Connector be Used on a Trailer with a 6-Way Connector
    You can use a trailer wiring kit like # TL5RK but to connect it to the trailer side 6-Way you would need to cut off the 4-Way end and attach the wires to 6-Way connector. The wiring color/functions on this wiring kit are white is ground, brown is tail lights, yellow is left turn and brake, green is right turn and brake. Just connect the wires to your 6-Way by function and you will be set.

  • How to Clean 4 Way Connections Points
    The easiest way would be to get a can of Coca-Cola and pour it on the 4 way and watch as the corrosion disappears. A little bit of dielectric grease like part # 11755 would help prevent future corrosion if applied to the contact points. I attached an FAQ on dielectric grease for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Lights Not Lighting Up Properly on Harbor Freight Trailer
    It sounds like the wiring harness you have is what is called a wishbone harness. These will have 2 wires that connect to the single running light pin so you don't have to run a jumper wire from one side of the trailer to the other. It also sounds like you have everything hooked up correctly. Yellow is usually left turn and brake lights, green is usually right turn and brake lights, brown is usually running lights, and white is the ground. You can test this by connecting the trailer to...

  • Troubleshooting Utility Trailer Lights That Dont Work with New Trailer Wiring
    If you are getting the correct lights with the Hopkins # 47345 tester on your tow vehicle and you have rewired the lights on your trailer then the problem is likely a bad ground just as you noted. Check all of the ground on your trailer and vehicle. Be sure that they are securely connected to a clean, bare-metal surface as even some paint can cause issues. Since the adapter that you use had LED lights for the testing it is possible that the problem is on your vehicle. LED lights use up...
