    Best place to get replacement trailer lights? LED?

    I plan on replacing my trailer bunks soon and decided I want to rewire my trailer and change out the lights to LED on my 2005 triton boat trailer. I've done some searching locally, but curious where you have bought from before and had good luck. I will be replacing all trailer lights to LED including the Triton Boats cut out on the side. I'm a novice at this kind of stuff so any advice is appreciated. I recently moved my boat into a shop on my property. And for the first time, feel like I have time, room, and space to work on a few things. Thanks Coach

    I have a 05 as well and just swapped mine out for led. I got them all from Eastern Marine trailer parts they all plugged right in.

    I think they're all pretty standard...oval or rectangular light with a 3 pin plug in. 15 minutes

    I used Optronics that I got at either Academy or BPS.
    Don't worry Ma'am....

    I've replaced the wiring and lights on two boat trailers now, and used optronics LEDs, ordered from etrailer.com. Most running light mounts are standard so you should be able to pop out the old bulb lights and put LEDs in. I wouldn't replace the mounts unless they are broke or aren't making a good ground connection.

    The two recommendations I would give you is to use dielectric grease on plugin connections, and use marine grade heat shrink tubing over wire connections. If you are redoing the wiring, soldering is the best, but I have't have a problem with butt connectors.

    I bought all my lights, bearings and seals through etrailer.com They have good videos of the products showing light out put and what not. They offer free shipping and their customer service is great.

    If you haven't tried Liquid Electrical Tape I suggest you try it. Paint it over the splice or solder joint, slide heat shrink over it and heat. It coats the repair and forces the liquid out of the heat shrink ends to form a hermetically sealed area that won't trap water inside.

    I have a Ranger Trail, 2000, single axle, with original light fixtures. Anybody swapped out LED's on one of these? Where did you get them?

    Thanks

    This is super good advice but to make it easier buy marine grade heat shrink tubing. It has adhesive on the inside and when heated it completely seals the joint.

    I haven't seen Marine Grade heat shrink. If it does what you say, then either would be roughly equivalent. In that case use what you can get.
