Optronics UCL178 Series GloLight LED Utility Light Diagram

Innovative GloLight Design

This white LED light serves as an exterior light for your trailer, RV, or other application. The light gives your RV or trailer a distinctive look that's completely street legal. This Optronics GloLight has a unique solid light pattern when lit, so your lights stand out from the rest. Optronics GloLights are a great way to add both style and value to your RV or trailer.


Sonically Sealed, Waterproof Trailer Light

The waterproof construction of this light makes it ideal for use on trailers that may be submerged, like a boat trailer. The housing and lens are sonically sealed together to create a single unit, which means that water will not get into the light and damage the diodes or circuit board.


LEDs vs. Incandescent Lights

The long-lasting, cool-burning LEDs make this light the perfect replacement for incandescent trailer lighting. LED lights are more efficient, use less power, and last much longer than incandescent lights.


PL-3 Wiring Connection

Optronics PL-3 Connection

This light has an industry-standard PL-3 connection as pictured above. The light accepts a 3-prong plug (sold separately).


Surface-Mount Light

Surface-mount lights install flat against the surface of the trailer, so a hole does not need to be cut into the trailer for the light. This type of light is installed using a flange or bracket that has mounting holes. And mounting hardware is used to secure the light to the trailer.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights - Utility Lights - UCL178RFP2B Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Optronics Glow Light taillight and reverse light. This waterproof light provides a red taillight, and white reverse light for your trailer. Has the glow light lens that creates a solid circle of light, with a nice smooth appearance. So the outer band glows red, and the inner area is white when you activate the reverse function of the vehicle and trailer.It's a sonically sealed, waterproof housing and lens unit that is submersible. Features durable surface mount technology. When it comes to the construction of the LED circuit board, that better withstands shock and vibration, and allows for improved heat distribution.

Now LEDs make great replacements for incandescent lights. They last longer, they burn brighter, and they're more efficient. With LEDs, you don't have to worry about replacing bulbs, and you don't have to worry about brittle filaments.We're looking a polycarbonate housing and acrylic lens. It's a surface mount installation, with the built in mounting flange. Mounting hardware not included.

And then here on the back, it accepts an industry standard three prong plug, which is sold separately. Taking a look at the overall dimensions real quick, then we'll hook it up to power, so you can see what it looks like with power running to it. Edge to edge going this direction, is about 7-1/2 inches. Edge to edge this direction is about 3-5/16. And then the overall depth, that's back to front, is about 1-1/8 inches deep.The mount holes are separated on center going this direction, by about 2-3/4 inches.

And then going this direction, they're separated on center by about seven inches, maybe 6-15/16 inches, right in that area. Alright we're going to go ahead and hook it up to power, that we can see what it looks like. So you can see here, it sends out a really nice, clear, consistent signal. This is that outer band that's red in color. And then when we activate the reverse function of the trailer, that center area will glow white.That contains a total of 22 diodes, or LEDs, so the multi diode design really helps optimize the overall light output.

Power draw at 12.8 volts, is 0.50 amps. And Optronics puts a lifetime warranty on the LEDs. That's going to do it for today's look at the Glow Light taillight and reverse light from Optronics.

I really like the bright back up lights. It does take a little extra work for the back up lights. - Sorry this pic doesn't show the backup/stop lights but this is the great little chuckwagon we put them on.




by:

The lights are good and standard size, but they seem to have a slightly off plug receptical. I ordered 6 of them and all seemed to be the same. I had to bend my connectors with a pliers a little bit to get them plugged in.

Being used to put back up lights on trailer. Never had back up lights before. Very well made.

They look nice. When off the light matches the halo brake and tail light.

If you’re going to sell lights you should also sell the wiring harness along with it I almost couldn’t use the lights but got lucky and found the wiring harness.

These are being installed in the trailer I pull behind my motorcycle. They broadcast a nice get your attention lighting up a brilliant turn signal light.


Comments
I love the GloLight led trailer lights. They look awesome and function perfect. I bought the trailer as a gutted shell and built it from there to a better than new trailer. Every light on the trailer had to be clear lens and have a specific look before I would purchase, and I dont have a single regret with these lights.

The Igor worked great. I had a heck of a time trying to order lights for the trailer - either not getting the ones I intended getting or mismatched lights. But you came through like me a champ. Thanks.

Review from a similar GloLight in Work Lights


I have had these installed for a year now on my 14ft utility trailer. I love these lights! They are strong, durable, bright, and look so super cool at night! Most recently, last month, I trailered 1500 miles and through the mountains in West Virginia. They held up through curves and bumps and rainstorms and even dime-sized hail! I would recommend these to anyone who needs this style of light! I wish I had brackets enough to put two on each side... just so it would look extra bada**!

This one is for the “driver” side. It has the lens on the bottom for lighting the license plate. (It does not include the license plate holder. I like this one because you just push in the wires. I recommend this light.

Review from a similar GloLight in Work Lights


Hello, I just opened up my order and I would like to return the lights - they are all scuffed up and scratched from the poor packaging job. The rear gasket also has a tear and they look like these units were once returned for the same reason. Please send an RMA or instructions to return the units. This is really disappointing - please advise on your website if your selling new lights or used, I paid for new lights.


Comments
It is understandable to be unhappy with the condition of the lights. The lights that we ship are new and I will send this information to our shipping department. Our customer service team will reach out to assist you.

Light is fine... mounting hole location was off by 1/8"... even though my trailer holes are slotted 1-1/2". Had to grind my trailer holes by hand in 90 degree heat to make your light fit... very frustrating and not cool.supposed to be a direct replacement per your own website.


Comments
Most GLOLight LED trailer lights have the mounting holes distanced at 2 inches from center to center.

Review from a similar GloLight in Work Lights


Upgrading our 1998 Coleman Grandview, the old incandescent just seemed too dim.
Nice light, only suggestion would be to list some wiring options, was a bit confusing going from the old Bargman to the new LED.
But I read through the Bargman page here and got squared away.

Pic is LED before anchoring compared to the stock on the right. BIG improvement.


Comments
Still great, nice and bright. They are a huge improvement over the factory incandescent signals.

The item I ordered came quickly and was exactly what was ordered and was an exact fit to replace the damaged light on my camper. etrailer filled my order quickly and shipped the item promptly and followed up with tracing information. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase products from them again.

Review from a similar GloLight in Work Lights


Very disappointed with etrailer! Whoever packed this either does not care or is clueless in shipping. They used to small of a box. The light fixture was to big for the box, it actually bowed the box outward. It was doomed before it left etrailer. Plus I was shorted on another product that I ordered. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

Review from a similar GloLight in Work Lights


The Optronics surface mount light (STL178RK1B) was easy to install and the 22 LED diodes provide exceptional light.
The light fits snug on the trailer bracket and the foam gasket provides extra protection.

Reverse lights are brighter than expected and look great on my trailer. I hope these are more theft resistant than the press in lights that came with my trailer. Overall much better lights than factory. As always etrailer delivers the best!

  • Troubleshooting Red Ring of GloLight LED Trailer Utility Tail Light Staying on
    Since the GloLight LED Trailer Utility Tail Light # UCL178RFP2B only has a max 0.50 amp draw I believe that you are on the right track where a little bit of power is still on the power wire and it is illuminating that ring. What would remedy this issue you are having is to install a Light Bulb Load-Resistors # DI34ZR on the brown wire that connects to the running light circuit. These build up resistance so that it actually takes you sending power back for that function to activate the ring.

  • Submersible Reverse Light and 7-Way Kit for Boat Trailer with 4-Way
    For a submersible reverse light we have the GloLight # UCL178RFP2B which would work great on a boat trailer. You'll need the pigtail harness part # A45CB which the white wire would get grounded to the boat trailer frame and the red wire to the reverse light circuit of the trailer. We have a great kit for adapting your trailer 4-way to a 7-way too with the part # e99011 which would be the easiest way to install the 7-way and wire in the reverse lights.
