Thank you very much for the detailed info.

Those look like a nice option, and I like the addition on the strip.

I will be looking hard at these.

I am thinking, if I add a converter, I can install 4 of these and have separate turn signals and stop lights for less than the series 84s.

So we are on the road now and, after leaving Lancaster County, PA, we have camped in western PA, central Ohio and now Northern Michigan. We've traveled a lot of miles on a lot of roads with the new tail light setup including the light strip. I see a noticeable change in the way other drivers react to our lane changes. As drivers are approaching from the rear and I signal a lane change, they seem to see it and hold back a bit so we can change lanes. The sequential yellow turn signals are very eye catching and seem to have an imperative which people are noticing. The new tail lights are quite bright too. I started out with this replacement so other drivers would have no question about seeing our turn signals and I am very pleased with the results.

That is good to hear.

I have decided to forego the Bargman series 84 led tail lights as they do not seem to offer a red/amber set. Only red/red and a triple unit with amber.

I may add the sequential strip in the future.

I ordered 2 red and 2 amber KT 6" oval led sets. I am going to install them so the red lights act as the tail lights and brake lights. The amber will be the turn signals only. In addition to the lights I ordered a 2 to 3 wire converter so the turn signals act independent of the brake lights. A new license plate holder with light was ordered as well.

I will add some pics after the install is complete.

Very cool. Please post pics when you are done. The LED's are so much better than the old incandescent bulbs. And I think the light strip has really caught the eye of other drivers.

Progress as of today. I decided to go with 2 reds on each side. Only ordered 2 so 2 more were on their way here.

I could not find black screws locally so I went with stainless steel.

The lights look good. Will you use a logic device to separate the brake light signal from the turn signals? Do you have easy access to the wires from inside the trailer or did you work from the outside? My wires were easily accessible inside the trailer behind the couch.

Yes, a 2 wire to 3 wire converter to separate the turn signals from the brake lights.

Since I am using a converter I need to get the left and right brake light wires to a central location. On the inside of my back wall I have cabinets and drawers. The tail lights are directly behind the drawers. I used a hole saw and cut a 1.5" hole in the wall behind the drawers and pulled the wires inside. That is where all the wiring comes into the main panel so these tail light wires will feel at home. It is just empty space behind the drawers and the factory cut out huge panels back there for the wiring anyway.

Mission accomplished.

I have yellow led turn signals and red tail/brake lights.

It was not easy but I got it done. LOL

The key was the Curt 2-3 wire convertor, model # 56196

I tried others but they did not work with LEDs.

I used the install as a teaching moment. I had my son learn how to strip and crimp wires as well as some troubleshooting. I will try to get a video tonight.
