Lighting is one of the most important parts of you trailer. This is why you need to check the lighting whether you are purchasing a new or used trailer, including checking every aspect of the wiring.
The wiring should be fastened well to the main frame of the trailer so it won’t start hanging down. A hanging wire will eventually start to drag and get caught on something, which means that something will most likely catch and your lighting will go out.
The wiring should be attached with more than just staples. Wiring should be put through washers, which have been welded in place.
You should also look at the way the wiring connections are made from the main harness.
You need proper connectors. Some companies put the connectors in plastic cases that are filled with silicone. Other companies just use black electrical tape which is not nearly as strong.
Light Emitting Diodes or LED lighting is pretty much standard on a trailer package. These are more reliable and have a longer life than the older incandescent bulbs.
If you have a trailer with insufficient lighting, come on into Trailer Boss and get an upgrade.
