    Anyone here use new LED blubs?

    For some reason i blow a damn bulb about every month or so, so today i just bought new LED trailer lights (yeah they was double the cost) hopefully they last a couple of years. (and use less power)

    yep they are definatly worth the extra money. i put them on this past winter and i love them. i soldered and shrink rapped all the connections. the whole trailer is water tight. i love it. they are very bright and look very nice at night. goodluck and nice to see someone else using those good old leds:clapping:

    Not yet but I like them. I have 5 trailers total when you add the Camper and the boat to my collection. I hope to get them all switched over to the LEDs, all the way around. I see them on other trailers on the road and I love them.

    I have them on my trailer for S/T/T and they really do get noticed, they're almost too bright at night, but hell, not my problem, i can't see'em from where I am.

    I have an LED id bar on the back of my F350 and I would eventually like to convert my stock lights over to LED on my truck since I leave my lights on all day long for safety. I need to get the right reisistors so I don't have rapid-flash problems caused by too little resistance.

    I have seen some at Walmart. Mostly Online. Do a search for LED Trailer Lights and you shoud find plenty of sites that sell them. You can also get them from your trailer manufacturer is you have an enclosed like Pace American, Haulmark, Wells Cargo etc. I think I have even seen them on the Reese and/or Draw Tight websites. THey cost about double a standard like kit (last time I priced them) but they are worth it. I just have not gotten them yet...
