Recommended Trailer Wiring and Bracket for Double Trailer Towing


Howdy, we are an OEM equipment trailer manufacturer and we regularly buy stuff from eTrailer, especially when doing development of new products. I recently purchased a set of the optonic lights - your Item # TLL9RK - and since were doing a tandem tow set I want to mount the vehicle receptacle to the rear trailer using a bracket. Im looking at this bracket your Item # 18144. Can I use this to mount the optonics harness, or do I need to purchase a different receptacle? If so, which receptacles will work for me? Thanks

It sounds like you are wanting to have two trailers in line. If this is the case and you are towing double, I recommend the Submersible, Under 80" LED Trailer Light Kit with 25' Wiring Harness # TLL9RK you mentioned and suggest using a junction box like # 38656 along with the mounting bracket # 18144 you mentioned. Then you would just need a second light kit for the rear trailer.

I'd run the wiring on the first trailer from the tongue to the junction box at the rear and then run the lights from the junction box as well as the wiring for the second trailer to the bracket. If you don't want to drill the bracket into the frame itself, you can use the No-Drill Mount Bracket, Short # 18140.

Let me know if I misunderstood or if you have further questions.
