Recommended Trailer Lighting for Kayak Trailer with Additional Post Style Lights  


is it possible to use JE00600 as travel guides on either side of kayak trailer if secured for visual purposes while driving ? if not, any ideas ? 2/ because of my age must submerge trailer lights backing on boat ramps what would be a better fit the SUBMERSIBLE LIGHT KIT or the INDIVIDUAL SEALED andSUBMERSIBLE LED LIGHTS ?TL5RK thank you

The Easy-Hitch Light-Up, Telescoping Hitch Aligner # JE00600 is a great option for aligning hitches and giving you a visual guide, but you cannot use them while driving. The magnets are simply not strong enough for travel and could become a road hazard. For the post style lighting you desire, I recommend the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights for Boat Trailers # CE27740.

For your trailer wiring, you can use the Submersible Light Kit # TL5RK or the LED Kit # TLL9RK. Either will work well for your to completely submerge in the water to launch your kayak. With either option, I recommend using the heat shrink connectors # DW05744-10 to create a water tight seal versus using the simple connections that could cause feedback when connected. It is a good idea to disconnect the trailer wiring from your vehicle at the trailer connector prior to submerging your trailer.
