Led Trailer lights

Thinking of changing my lighting board light cluster, and have found these.....

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1305428970...84.m1423.l2648

They look good and I thought a great price..... Especially as they say "waterproof"!!!
Anyone had any experience good or bad?.....?

Ditto, the next time a bulb goes on mine the whole light units will be changed for these.

Glad everyone likes the look of these and found the link useful... However I wanted to find someone who has fitted them before I committed...

Looks like I just need to stump up the cash!!

The other way of looking at it -

How much is a bulb cluster?

Worst case you are back to square 1, and a few quid down. Probably an insignificant cost differential when compared with twhat the thing o nthe traielr will drink in a day's outing!


I've got another set of "submerisble" ones that I was hoping to have fitted in time for tomorrow's Forth cruise, but various stuff got in the way and they probably won't be on 'till next week. Will report as & when they go swimming.
