A lot of hot rod supply places carry LEDs that are direct replacements for common bulbs

hehe when you get them installed perhaps you can share which wires from the trailer you connect to which of the wires on the light... the reason I ask is I have the same lights to install and today I cut the rat fur open on the right side to see what is connected to the current lights and I have far more trailer wiring than wires on the lights to connect too!

On the trailer side I have a yellow wire which according to the manual is the back up light and its currently connected to the black wire on the original light. As the new lights dont have back up what do I do with the back up wire? The brown wire on the trailer side (per manual is my right turn and brake light) is connected to the Red wire on the light but its been suggested here that I put that to the Black wire - hummm. Green wire on trailer side (running lights and markers) is connected to the green wire on the light - new lights dont have a green wire so not sure what to do with that one? The only one that makes any sence is the white wire trailer to white wire light!

Here I thought this would be a simple thing! LOL

White is ground,the red wire from the new light went to my red on my scamp,the back wire went to my green wire on scamp. The best thing to do is hook up the white wire to maybe your car battery(just hold it on) take the red wire to the positive and check the brightness and then put the black wire on, now you know the light colors. Now turn on your emergency flashers and put the white to ground and take your brightest wire and put it on one wire of your trailer, if it does not work put it on the other one. then you will beable to do the same to the next wire. If you hook up the ground and put one only wire at a time you can not mess anything up.

I also took the sockets off the old fixtures and put the new lights on the old back , I used a #14 by 3/4 stailess screw which is bigger than the screws that were on it so I would not have to change the back. I put both in in about 15 min.

For those that are installing the 7" round LEDs, I'd love to see daylight Wedding Cake pics and nighttime Wedding Cake pics (or whatever you're replacing), THEN daylight LEDs and nighttime LEDs. I'm thinking most people would be amazed at the difference. Being seen on the road whether daylight or nighttime is paramount over "original." IMHO. AND YMMV
