Question: How do you wire LED lights to a trailer?

Do LED trailer lights need special wiring?

Some LED lights may be hard-wired, while others may require a pigtail plug that is typically different than ones used on incandescent lights. Hardwired lights can be wired directly to the wiring on your trailer.

Do LED trailer lights need a resistor?

You may not even need load resistors to switch to LED lights. The best thing to do is to try the lights without load resistors first. No need to purchase something you may not need until you know need it. Load resistors such as # DI34ZR dissipate heat through the body of the resistor.

Do you need a resistor for every LED?

An LED (Light Emitting Diode) emits light when an electric current passes through it. The simplest circuit to power an LED is a voltage source with a resistor and an LED in series. If the voltage source is equal to the voltage drop of the LED, no resistor is required.

Why does my left trailer light not work?

The left side turn signal and brake light is generally the yellow wire going into your trailer connector. The first thing to do is check the fuses on your tow vehicle. If the problem is there then you need to clean it, if necessary, and if that doesnt fix it the problem is in your vehicle.
