    increased backup lights using LED's

    these are 2 ultrabright strips of 21 LED's per strip - about a foot long. The width of that section of fiberglass was perfect for this size. Just wired into the backup light circuit and voila - more lighting behind AND beside the trailer !!

    **yes the stock backup light has been removed - I'm modifying that lamp too **

    Thats how I did my mine, Think about it,, with the reverse light BEHIND the boat do you really see???? With them to the side you can see the curb/ramp lanes and if you use your mirrors to back up this set up is the way to go. I got the Trailer kit in white from Bluewater and they were the perfect length to wrap from behind the rear wheel (single axle) and around and under the brake light.

    What about if you don't have back-up lights on the trailer??? could I still use them or would I have to run a wire all the way down the frame and tap into the vehicle for it to work???

    I pull with my truck which has the 7 pin round, I think use a 7pin round to 5 flat adapter. The center pin on the 7 pin is reverse (white light). Last pin on 5 flat is hot when in reserve (easy to check with little circuit tester). I then ran a wire through my trailer frame and added my white led's to the frame and changed out trailer harness plug to 5 wire and reconnect. all is good see my rebuild to see the lights in action 1993 Nitro 170 TF Repair/Rebuild.
