    well today is not a good one. as some drunk driver slamed into my trailer ( not loaded ) that was parked some 10 +/- feet off the road(i-95). he clams he did not see the trailer.
    i am wondering if i should install maby a Signal Master Light and some rear light flashers by Fed Signal part number #656105 on the trailer.
    any input is welcome.

    I had this same problem when I was mowing, always parking in weird places and I wanted to make sure I was seen for the safety of myself and equipment. I mounted 2 mini strobes on each side of the trailer, they were mounted on 2 posts that were mounted right behind the fenders of the trailer. This way, they were up high enough to be seen from the front as well, they were perched so they could be seen over the fender. Wire them up, I had a switch on the tongue of the trailer.

    You could also do a whelen slimlighter in the back window of the truck. That will get peoples attention!
