Hope everyone had a great Christmas.
I've got a winter project I want to complete which is to fit LED marker lights on my Snipe trailer, and looking for some advice please.
My previous boat sat an Indespension trailer and I fitted integral front and rear marker lights. However the marker lights were standard filament bulbs and even although I used Sikaflax around the units where the wiring connected, moisture and salt water still caused more issues than I could remember, plus bulbs failed regularly.
I want marker lights as the boat sits wider than the Snipe trailer, plus I want it lit up like a Christmas tree for safety reasons!
I've got a conventional 12v light-board which comes off prior to launching. What I've done in the past is simply splice in tinned wiring from the marker lights (mounted on the mudguards), run it up to the hitch and then use an electrical connector (which can detach) to power them to the main electric light-board wiring before it goes to the car. I've used heat-shrink and soldered connections for a proper job.
Anyone any links to LED marker lights (must be integral front and rear), similar to these:LED front/side/rear marker lamp 10-30v. rubber body - Trailertek
. Not even sure if they are waterproof?
