Surface-Mount Light

Surface Mount Trailer Light Installation Diagram

Surface-mount trailer lights install using a flange or bracket with mounting holes. These lights lay flat against the trailer surface and only require a small, often pre-existing hole, for wiring. Mounting hardware is used to secure the light to the trailer.

Worked great, wiring was fairly straight forward. This new light is brighter that the passenger side might be back to replace that one too! :)


Identical to what was on my 21 year old Nomad. One of the license plate brackets had broken off of it. Fixed it right up!


I was looking all over for tail lights for my 21 year old camper...
E-Trailer had the exact Lights .. Perfect match - mounting Holes and Wiring Colors... The Lens was cracked in Shipment... Contacted E0Trailer and they sent me a replacement the same day... Great Product - Great Company- RJ


I got exactly the part I needed, shipped to me promptly. I'll definitely come back again when I need more parts!


Great replacement, Easy to change out


Unit matched up perfectly bolted right on working properly


Just what I needed.


After 22 years the license plate tabs broke off of my 1998 Aljo trailer. Didn't know if I would find the identical left side light to match the unbroken right side but etrailer had it in stock for a very reasonable price and prompt shipping. Will install today and will be good for another 20 years!

Looks like new, a quality product.
William - 02/17/2021


Very happy with their service. It was exactly what I was looking for great price and fast shipping.


Working beautifully, an exact match!


Great OEM fit. Still working good after a year.

Lights are still working great. No complaints
Wink - 09/05/2021


Came quick and fit perfectly. Would use etrailer again.


As advertised arrived quickly. Always a good experience buying from etrailer


We are so happy with Adam at etrailer he was able to find the part we needed for our 1997 Aljo ! The delivery was swift! Thank you so much we will continue to use your services! Your company is awesome


It arrived broken; not all the broken pieces were in the box.

I apologize for your troubles. Customer Service will be reaching out to fix this.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 08/17/2021


exact fit on older travel trailer. I did not need to replace driver side but the price was right so I replaced it while I was doing the passenger side.


This light works great and was easy to install. I recommend ordering from etrailer.


Using the website and finding the right product was straightforward and seemless. Ordering and paying was easy and I received the item quickly. The product was of good quality and the price was fair. I would buy from this source again.


etrailer to the rescue again. These worked great from my 2005 [email protected] trailer.


Exact replacement for the existing taillight assemblies.


Was an exact match and works as it shou ld.


Great product great price fast shipping


I received the tail light and is going to fit really good. You were fun to talk to and will do more business with you because of how you treated me. Thank you for being you.


Light works great.


I ordered this light and also some other lights. I had to amend my order and they were very helpful in doing that. Items arrive quickly and were of very high quality. Highly recommend them!

  • Installation of Peterson Rectangular Stop/Tail/Turn/Reflex Trailer Tail Light V457L
    RV makers do not maintain details/specs on the smaller items like tail lights that they install when fabricating their RVs. The USA-made Peterson Rectangular Stop/Tail/Turn/Reflex Trailer Tail Light # V457L is for the driver-side of a trailer and it includes mounting tabs for your license plate. The matching passenger-side item is # V457; it does not have tabs for the plate. Both lights also have four mounting holes on their white plastic bases. These can be seen if you click on the linked...

  • Replacement Trailer Taillight Lens For a 1989 Jayco 809 Deluxe Pop Up Camper
    The Peterson Combination Trailer Tail Light # V457 and V457L are going to be some of the closest lights to your original tail lights on your 1989 Jayco 809 Deluxe. These surface mount lights are 8-13/16" wide x 5-1/16" tall. The drivers side light base includes the mounting tabs for the license plate. Your taillight lens is no longer in production and would be very difficult to find a used one in good condition due to the age of your Jayco. You can try a local RV salvage yard to see if...

  • Availability of Peterson M457 Light for Driver Side
    We do have the driver side light available, they are not universal. The correct light is the Peterson Trailer Tail Light w/ License Bracket # V457L. Unlike the # V457, this includes the license plate bracket and light.

  • Replacement Tail Light for 1988 Jayco Jay-Series 1008 Pop Up Camper
    I am unable to find a lens replacement or the exact tail light replacement for your 1988 Jayco J-Series 1008 DD pop up camper. My recommendation is to replace the light with the Peterson Combination Trailer Tail Light - 4 Function - White Base - Red Lens - Passenger Side # V457 and if you want the license plate mount # V457L. If you don't want the plate mount and just want the matching set the # V457 will work for both sides.

  • How Should Peterson Combination Tail Lights V457L and V457 Be Wired To Trailer?
    Based on the light illuminating and only having the issue once new lights were installed the issue is on the camper side of things and not in your 2005 Chevrolet Colorado. When installing the Peterson Trailer Tail Light # V457L and # V457 you should connect the brown wire on the tail lights to the tail light wire on the trailer (Brown wire on the 4-way you are using to test) and the green wire on the tail light to the yellow/green wire on the trailer (Yellow and green wire on the 4-way...

  • Grounding Peterson Trailer Tail Light Part # V457L to Trailer Frame
    The Peterson Trailer Tail Light # V457L that you referenced is designed to ground through the mounting hardware which means that a bolt runs through the base which is attached to the ground circuit of the light and when it contacts the metal frame of your trailer the ground circuit is complete. If you wanted to ground this light with a wire you'd need to run the ground wire to the bolt you use to attach the light between the base and the trailer frame. The white wire on your 7-way wiring...
