Can Ground Strap of Optronics Trailer Taillight TLL160RK Connect to Trailer Wiring  


Hey for optronics tLL16rk I’m installing on my boat trailer. Replacing incandescent lights. On my Trailer I have a white wire that went to the old light. Should I cut the ring off the white wire on the new light and connect it to white wire on trailer or keep ring and screw to frame?


Expert Reply:

You could do either actually. The Optronics trailer taillight kit part # TLL160RK has a ring terminal for it's ground wire that you can either run back to the mounting hardware or cut off and wire to your ground wire. Personally I would probably run it back to the mounting hardware as that would limit the possibility of the ground catching on something and getting damaged at some point which would allow you to limit possible taillight issues. If your trailer has an aluminum frame though you'd need to connect it to the wire though since aluminum doesn't conduct electricity as well.
