2009 Trailmaster 7x14

Got a 2009 Trailmaster with the in-fender markers just like most of the Trailmasters. I'm wanting to switch everything over to LED's, anyone know of a place to get these recessed lights and how hard it is to replace them?

check your local truck stops....they should just pop in and out. May need some silicone spray to make them slicker and easier to work with.

LED are so much easier to take care of. No bulbs loose or wiggling around or buring out. I replaced all of mine after i couldnt keep one of the tail lights working. I will never go back to bulbs.

I was going to replace my 3-light marker on the back with an LED bar like I have on my truck but I ended up just putting a LED 3-light marker on. Looks alot better than regular bulbs.

Thats how my old trailer was, it got to the point I couldn't keep the lights working. After going to LED I never had a single problem with the lights. I've been sold on them ever since. If I do my trailer though it probably won't be this summer but I haven't decided yet. I'm just looking for where to get the recessed lights that way when I do want to get it done it don't take forever.
