That sounds superb ,are you saying you have some sort of wireless tx from your car socket to signal what the battery units are showing

i didnt mess with junction box ,just took two soldered and double heat shrunk 7 cores (1 from each side ) and took them into a massive inline 12 pin trailer connector ,above winch post if that gets in the water were in trouble
then took one cable to rear of car ,you can still run a couple of two cores out the back of cable gland for sides and number plate
there is much smaller dia trailer cable avail which is fine for led,s

Have you got a link to the inline 12 pin trailer connector?

very quick look for you ,but i never had the two 7 pins hanging off it ,however when i went to my current trailer i have just wired the left and right wires straight in to one standard plug (you can get one with a duel gland rubber , my resistors are in two die cast ally boxes tucked into the 80x40 of the trailer going in and out via 16mm glands

well nearly perfect but don,t think there is a 12 pin option !


The other thing to remember is once you have got reversing lights on your trailer its a simple add one of those cheap and cheerful reversing cameras which will just trigger off your reversing light positive

12 pin has me confused, is it a13 pin you are talking about?

I thought you wanted to join both sides of trailer to a single 13 core wire hence my link above.

Btw those wireless lights are not legal on own it doesn't look like, can't see reflector? may also require fog and reverse light so be careful if you need that.

some info here-

All trailers must have fitted:
•Two red sidelights.
•Two red stoplights.
•Two red reflective triangles.
•An illuminated number plate.
•Amber indicators (designed to flash between 60-120 times per minute).
•Some form of letting the driver know trailer indicators are working correctly such as a buzzer or light.

All trailers built after September 30th 1990 also require:
•White front reflectors.

If the trailer is more than 1.3m wide they also require:
•At least one red fog lamp.

Larger trailers (1.6m and over) require additional features:
•White front reflectors.
•White front markers/lights.

Trailers Manufactured from October 2012 fitted with brakes require additional features:
•Reverse light

Longer trailers (6m and over, excluding drawbar, but not boat trailers) require additional features:
•Red/White side markers.

Arranging lights and reflectors:
•Indicators should be a minimum of 350mm and a maximum of 1500mm from the ground.
•Indicators should be a maximum of 400mm from the side of the trailer.
•Indicators should be a minimum of 400mm apart.
•Reflective rear triangles should be positioned, a minimum of 250mm and a maximum of 900mm from the ground, a minimum separation of 600mm and no more than 400mm from the sides.
•A single fog lamp should be mounted on the rear of the trailer, anywhere between the centre point and offside edge.
•Two fog lamps must be separated and positioned at opposite sides of the rear of the trailer.
•Fog lamps should be a minimum of 250mm and a maximum of 1000mm from the ground.
•Fog lamps should be a minimum of 400mm apart.
•There should be at least of 100mm of separation between the fog lights and the tail lights/indicators.

Where does this info come from? I omlyvask cos my trailer (2015 Rollercoaster) came with side view running lights which (obviously) died the minute the thing went in the water. Been thinking I ought to fix them and try to make them as waterproof as poss, but maybe I don't need to bother?

sorry Xk59D ,yes it is 13 pin
you must go eu marked lights to be legal
reverse ,tail.indicator ,fog , brake down each side = 5 plus neutral = 6 wires plus link the spare into tail to give you a feed for reg plate on one side and side markers on other,
