    I've finally had enough of taillight troubles on my trailer and bought and installed a set of LED stop, tail, and turn lights. They cost about $90 per set, but are rated for 50,000 hours of burn time. I'll guarantee they'll still be working when I'm not. Seriously, they are the brightest tail lights I've ever seen and definitely beat the ones most landscaping trailers come from the factory with. Check them out, and you'll want to get some. Thanks, Lynn

    Lynn -- are these replacement bulbs, or an entire system? Do you have a link to give us an idea of how they work? Where did you get them?

    I got them through Mutual Wheel, which is a truck accessory outfit. I don't know if they have a web site or not. Yes, they are a light and seperate bolt on bracket to fit any landscaping trailer or for that matter, any trailer. They are an entirely sealed unit with approximately 36 led lights enclosed. Check out some semi's on the road and I guarantee you can tell which ones are equipped with leds. Lynn

    If you want long-term useage from trailer lites, you also need proper mounting: recessed, flexible mountings. See a good line at https://www.truck-lite.com/tl/sindex.html . The .pdf catalog on the home page will give good idea of what's available. Have used their regular sealed units for years.

    We have them over here as well. They are made by Hella.
    They are a multivolt system running happily on between 9 and
    33 volts.

    I have seen them on FED EX trucks and some commercial trucks.The only question I have on them is at inspection time and one or 2 led's burn out prematurely would they require a complete replacment of the light or can the single led's be replaced?Because he said it was a sealed unit I am doubting that the single led's could be.I know long life expectancy of these led's are very high but if somthing can burn out quicker than avearge It will be on my trailer.I have been pondering this since I first seen these taillights,Anyone?
