How Does the Optronics Light # RVST50 Wire to a Trailer  


Hello I just bought a tail light from your company and I need to hook it up. I see that I have a white green and brown wire coming in and I need to connect it to the light which has a green white and black wires. Could u let me know what ones match to which. I need to try to have it done tonight as my wife is taking a trip tomorrow and I have a busted light to replace. Thank you for any help you can provide.

On the light # 30-92-001 that you referenced the white wire will need to be grounded, the green wire will need to be run to the running light circuit and the black wire to the stop/turn circuit.

Assuming the wiring you listed for where you plan to install this light follows the standard taillight color codes the white wires would match each other, the green of the light runs to the brown of your trailer, and the black of the light would run to the green of your trailer.

If you are unsure of what circuits you have on your trailer you can use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to test for function.
