LED tailights

Hi everyone I just finished one of my many upgrades to my new trailer. This one was a big safety issue to me. My liberty express came with LED marker and trail lights, however the brake lights/turn signals were standard 1157 bulbs. During the daylight sunny day hours you would have a hard time seeing any brake lights. I switched them out for LED units. This was big improvement. Now you can see them quite well. Next is the surge protector. Happy Camping.

Snapper did you just change the 1157 out for an LED replacement or did you do an entire tail light change? Send up some pics and what you actually did.

Do you have any pictures of the tail lights that you installed or are the just bulb replacement?

You can buy complete LED tail/brake/turn/license assemblies at Harbor Freight pretty reasonable.

This is what I used.
