we pull a 16 foot box van, or a race trailer, or a boat, or a range rover, or a h2, or a trailer full of sand toys, or a horse trailer, or a bobcat equipment trailer and need to make sure every trailer has working tail lights.

  1. Used new led marker sets that required shaving to make them fit and shine at right angles
  2. hooked low intensity wire to old marker +12
  3. ran stop and both turns up the cap and hooked to high intensity wire with diodes at each connection
  4. installed a flasher unit in cockpit found spare marked pair to rear cap used two to set up emergency flasher config
  5. installed a motorcycle brake light pre flash on the overhead stop ligt path to all high intensity markers
  6. installed front marker sets to mimic rear markers all but the blinkers.
