i could only come up with another american source for the fittings

http://www.championtrailers.com/SUBMERSIBLE_LIGHTS.htm

if they would despatch to the uk it wouldnt be rocket science to make up a submersible trailerboard from these components.

Surly a regular board sealed up with silicone would do the job?

When I had a sib on a trailer I used to have the board permantly fixed to the trailer and was always submersing it. That was a regular board and worked for a good few months before it broke. Just remember to disconnect it before you get it wet so it won't blow a fuse in the car.

Thanks

Thanks gang.
What a friendly forum.
I am going to import some of those US lamps and make a board.
I have gone through 2 boards already this year.
Its a chore taking it off, and then you lay it down on the cement on the ramp, and then accidentally nudge it with your foot and the lens cracks, then you curse and put it in the car boot and put some other stuff on top and bust it a bit more. Or am I just a hamfisted fool? It seems that if it could be left in situ permanently it would not keep busting. Even if you manage not to bust it then the wiring is always playing up due to being in a wet environment.
cheers
