Led tail lights

First off I love all the new led lights that are on the market. I saw the oval tail lights that many of us have and thought it might be worth a try. Wow, what a difference. Big and bright and amazing when stepping on the brake. Easy install and hook up. I got all 4 on Ebay for $50. Seemed like a nice little up grade.

I was talking to a truck driver and he hate the LED lights ( brake/turn ) on the rear of his trailers. He said all the new trailer come with LED lights, he hoping they will do back to the old lights on the rear of the trailers. It seem that when it is snowing the LED do not get hot and the snow does not melt off them like the old lights did and it is a ticket when he pull into a weight station if they are cover with snow.

Living in snow country, and driving a Silverado and sometimes pulling a trailer, with LED light assemblies, there has never been any problem. And have never noticed a class 8 trailer with LEDs with snow buildup on them.

Maybe cause they are usually vertical the snow does not stick? Not sure.
I have seen some of the trailers and other vehicles have taillights completely covered with mud and/or slush but those were not only LED but also incandescent bulbs.

But I guess it might be a problem in some areas or with the position of some lights. But, he better get used to them.

I am on the LED side ! You can see LED's in the DAYTIME,the person BEHIND you can also see them! In regard to Snow,snowmobiles had issues with Old style S/T lights covered up with snow and there was a Company who sold "Heated Taillight's",now they Design the Taillight area so LED's can be used without Snow issues! Youroo!!
